Le Creuset has a bit of a cult following due to the longevity and versatility of their classic Dutch ovens. But as much as people love these kitchen staples for everything from frying to braising, these pots can get pretty pricey. It’d be nice to have an option that offers similar cooking versatility and reliability at a more digestible price.

Well, of course, Costco stepped in to save the day. Instagram user @CostcoGuide shared that they had discovered a set of two Tramontina cast iron Dutch ovens at Costco for only $59.99. These duos include a 3.5-quart and 5.5-quart size, and come in an option of white or red. The pots even have the classic knobs! As similar Le Creuset options can run several hundred dollars each, this is quite the bargain.

These Dutch ovens, which are also available individually online to save you a trip to Costco, are made of an enameled cast iron and have a self-basting lid, just like their Le Creuset counterparts. The beauty of Dutch ovens is that they are oven-safe up to 450 degrees, but are not limited to oven use. They can also be used on all sorts of other cooktops, including stovetop or a burner or at your next outdoor cookout.

Dutch ovens have quite the fan base because there’s just so much that can be done with them. Whether frying chicken or making a pot roast for the holidays, these pots will deliver. Plus, they’re so timeless and beautiful, it’s just as easy to put them in the oven as it is to place them on a trivet at the table and use them for serving when dinnertime arrives. Of course, being able to enjoy these perks is much more appetizing at this bargain price!
