The Lifesaving Magic of a Dutch Oven
If you’re making a stew, sauce, curry, soup- you need a Dutch oven. I bought this Dutch oven off Amazon recently and it changed my life.
It sears like a cast iron and stews like a crock pot... and stings like a bee. If I were to have one pot- it would be this one. Ok ok ok so the most popular Dutch oven is the Le Creuset, but that is F expensive ($150-300). I recommend Lodge’s Dutch oven. Lodge makes a dope cast iron and their Dutch oven is no exception. I *may* have splurged a little bit and got the cute white one. At a price of $40-60, it’s hard to beat.
Why buy one?
(+) it’s like having a cast iron pot that’s easy to clean with a lid
(+) it gets super hot and allows you to sear food at high heat and stew it at low heat- very versatile
(+) cooks food quickly and evenly
(+) cooks meats super tender
(+) high heat allows you to disintegrate veggies (like fresh tomatoes) into stew quickly
(-) it’s super heavy
