Finding the right Dutch oven can take some time. Are you looking for ceramic, stainless steel, or cast iron? Compact or family-size? Round or oval? Well, if a versatile Dutch oven that’s easy to clean, holds a ton of food, and looks gorgeous on your stovetop sounds like the right fit, then listen up: Caraway’s Dutch Oven checks all these boxes and is on sale right now. It’s an editor-loved piece of cookware, ranking as the top nonstick option on our list of the best Dutch ovens. It’s already surprisingly affordable at $125, but for a limited time, you can take an additional 20 percent off as part of a huge sitewide Caraway sale. There’s no better way to get ready for cozy winter dinners!

The direct-to-consumer brand has been wowing the Kitchn team for quite some time now, with their impressive nonstick ceramic design that makes for super-easy cleanup. Much like the sauce pan that we’ve called “miraculously nonstick,” this Dutch oven is going to seriously improve your soups, stews, breads, and more as food will slide off the surface.

When our tools editor tested it against other brands, this Caraway Dutch Oven stood out because nothing stuck to it, even after making rice, chicken thighs, meatballs, and a loaf of bread. It features a nontoxic ceramic-coated interior that’s mineral-based and eco-friendly, so you can cook knowing there aren’t any harmful chemicals involved. Tons of reviewers also raved about how easy it is to use, with one person writing, “Caraway is not lying when they claim their pans are nonstick. Nothing is left behind! Cleaning the pan is so easy and requires no scrubbing at all.”

Another added perk about this Dutch oven is how lightweight it is. Most Dutch ovens, like the famous Le Creuset and Staub options, have a cast iron interior which often makes these pots quite heavy and difficult to move, especially when they’re filled with food. This one, however, weighs just six pounds, which is about half the weight of most of its competitors. It’ll make you more likely to use it because it won’t be such a hassle to bring out!

Of course, the Caraway Dutch Oven also has an extremely charming appearance and comes in a range of colors that will pop on any stovetop or kitchen table. And, its 6.5-quart capacity is the perfect size for feeding a family. It’ll be the ultimate tool to start 2022 off with cozy soups and stews — and maybe even a few batches of mulled wine! Keep in mind that some of the colors will ship in late January, but you can order now to take advantage of this awesome sale.
