Reader question: Is the La Crueset the only dutch oven you recommend? ~Jean S., Seattle, WA
Thanks for writing! The only requirements for Dutch ovens when making Glorious One-Pot Meals are:
- They must be made of cast iron.
- They must have a well-fitting lid that does not have any gaps.
- They must have a flat bottom.
Both seasoned cast iron and enameled cast iron Dutch ovens work well for Glorious One-Pot Meals, and the brand does not matter.
Looking at my own shelves of cast iron Dutch ovens, I can count five brands that all make perfect Glorious One-Pot Meals.
