Best Dutch Ovens

post-preview

The best dutch ovens come down to the layers of enamel, called "hard coat enamel". Staub is the only real competitor to Le Creuset, but the pricing is about the same. The reason that Le Creuset and Staub are expensive pots is because they have multiple layers of enamel to prevent chipping. We slightly preferred the Le Creuset but also recommended the Lodge or Staub because of the huge price differential. Le Creuset's lifetime warranty, does however warrant the extra cost.
