Perfect for slow-cooked chili, roasted meats, stewed vegetables and more, this cast-aluminum Dutch oven is ideal for searing on the stovetop and then adding liquid to braise or deglaze. A domed lid locks in moisture, so cooking foods are steadily basted in their own flavorful juices. An excellent choice for one-pot meals, this Dutch oven is suitable for a wide range of cooking techniques-including stewing, browning and slow cooking. The nonstick coating results in easy searing and browning, and thanks to the cast-aluminum construction, the oven is significantly lighter than similarly sized pans. Constructed from cast aluminum for incredible results, all in a pan that's much lighter than comparable ovens. Nonstick coating facilitates easy stirring and makes cleanup a snap. Oven features a large cooking area for searing and browning as well as high, straight sides that help retain moisture and flavor. Flared edges help ensure drip-free pouring. Stainless steel loop handles are securely riveted to the pan and provide a safe, comfortable grip when wearing oven mitts. Domed lid retains cooking liquids for moist, tender results and features a large knob for easy lifting.
