No kitchen is complete without a Dutch oven. Durable and versatile, these thick-walled wonders have long been a wedding registry favorite, in large part due to their hefty price tags. (A fancy French one can easily run you upwards of $300.)
But thanks to our good friends at Lodge, you don’t have to say “I do” to get your hands on a high-quality Dutch oven. The Tennessee-based cast iron brand’s gorgeous, enameled six-quart cast oven is available for just $45 on Amazon. Yes, you read that right: $45.
The Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven is a cult favorite, and has earned more than 5,000 five stars reviews on Amazon. And its metal lid knob means you can put it in the oven up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
“Amazing cast iron pot,” one shopper wrote. “The quality is superb and the metal is heavy but practical.”
“I adore this Dutch oven,” another review reads. “It's perfect in every conceivable way: it heats evenly and doesn't scorch under normal usage conditions (great for making cheese, for example). Clean up is a breeze. I would buy this again if I didn't have one already. Seriously, it's that good.”
