Wish List Wednesday: Dutch Oven

I started out my weight loss journey as a fast food junkie.  I had absolutely no need for fancy cookware, and it wasn’t on my radar.  When Paula Deen, a woman whom I followed relentlessly, released her line of cookware, I had to have it.  I put it on my Christmas List, and Santa brought it.  I didn’t even cook.  That was a long time ago.

Paula Deen

I still have her cookware, and I now enjoy actually using it.  I, however, feel somehow conflicted on buying any more of her products because of the types of foods she endorses.  Still, I need a dutch oven.  Something that can go from the stovetop to the oven without damage.  Paula Deen has one, but I for sure will not be getting that one.

Having done a little research, these things are expensive!  Do you have a dutch oven?  Do you have a brand or model you recommend?  The good thing about making a wish list is that you have time to ask around and solicit feedback before committing to a purchase.

What do you think?

    I have a Le Creuset dutch oven. It’s expensive, but you can also put it in your will and hand it down to the next generation! As well, it’s worth it to at least get a real, cast iron dutch oven, preferably enameled. The heat distribution will be better as well as holding heat. And to really have something stand up to stove to oven cooking it needs to be well made. If you’re really going to be using it frequently, it’s the decision of buying multiple cheaper dutch ovens over time, or buying one more expensive one that you can use every day for 50 years.

    Sometimes you can find Le Creuset at TJ Maxx, or Home Goods and they are a little less expensive!

    Get a cast iron dutch oven from Lodge.

    I see dutch ovens all the time at Winners (Canada)/TJ Maxx etc. (US). They go on sale at about 60% off about twice a year in Canada at Canadian Tire, so keep watching flyers. Mine cost me $30, and while I am on the lookout for a larger higher end one, find that this one does everything I need it to do. Careful – one isn’t enough!
