Default Dutch Oven

Do you have one? Do I need one? I get Cook's Illustrated now and it seems that every other recipe calls for one. I didn't even know what it is (though I looked it up). I'm not averse to buying a new cookware item, of course, but I'm not sure if other things that I already have will suffice.

Dutch ovens are great for camping cookouts.

Do you use it when cooking in the house? I'll never be a camper. Just wondering...

I don't have one, but have been meaning to get one for camping. I would imagine you could use it in the oven, since you can stick it on hot coals but I'm just guessing.

If its coming from Cooks Illustrated magazine (as opposed to a more outdoor oriented mag), they are probably referring to an enameled cast iron dutch oven, more for indoor use. I have one from Le Creuset (the gold standard). It quite expensive but worth every penny. i love it and it gets a ton of use.

Funny, they called it a French Oven on their website, probably a little tongue in cheek because they are a French company.

But the others are right, you can use those much less expensive, camping type Lodge brand dutch ovens indoors too. Those have more issues wiht rusting and stuff, need to be seasoned, etc.. For indoor use, get an enameled one. There are Le Creuset knock-offs that would probably suffice.

I'll help anyways. LOL. I use mine in the oven and on top of the oven. IN the grill and in the fire. You can get a cheap one at Walmart if your a dutch oven virgin, which I'm sure you are. My wife knows I'm not.

Then if you like it you can buy a better one.

Nice Cubfan. Those are high quality. They have an outlet store here for those.

Okay, so it's basically a cast-iron cooking pot as opposed to a metal one? That's cool. They have them at Target, which I assume are lower-end ones, in the $50 range. I'll shop around and try to get one, as do like to stick to a recipe to the letter the first time before adding my own variations.

I have a couple of the Le Creuset dutch ovens. Nothing beats them for making stews and braises. They're also good to fry in because it's easy to keep them at a stable temperature on the cooktop.
