Lodge cast-iron cookware is affordable, of high quality, and made to last for generations. In our guide to the best Dutch ovens, we recommend the Lodge 6-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven as our top pick. It’s inexpensive, easier to use than many others we tested, and the slightly curved base keeps food from getting trapped in the corners. If you love to entertain, have a big family, meal prep, or regularly cook large cuts of meat, this is a great deal for the 7.5-quart version of our pick. It has the same great design but keep in mind that the added space comes with added weight. However, the 7.5-quart version weighs a whopping 18 pounds compared to the 15 pounds of the 6-quart model. If that doesn’t scare you away, the 7.5 quart in solid red is down to $80 from $100 with free shipping for Amazon Prime members.
