A Dutch Oven is a heavy-duty pot with a tight fitting lid usually made of cast iron or ceramic. They conduct heat evenly and can be used in the oven or stovetop. Dutch Ovens are perfect for stewing, roasting, and braising. We regularly use one for roasting chicken, braising pork, or for savory beef roasts, just to name a few. It’s a workhorse in the kitchen that I’d surely miss if it ever ran away.
