Dutch Oven from Green Cooking Pots

This company is so below the radar, I’m not even sure it exists. With a stripped-down website, and an “about us” page that surprises with a pair of spunky twins named Cafe and Mica who own the company, profiling themselves as healthy living buffs, Green Cooking Pots is definitely a contender for best deal in the Dutch oven department. The Le Crueset 4 1/2 quart Dutch oven will run you over $220 at Williams-Sonoma. I’ve cooked out of the 4 1/2 quart Dutch oven from Green Cooking Pots for a few months now and I will say there’s no wear and tear, the heat is strong and even, and it cleans up well; everything enameled cast iron is known for, plus the eco-friendly benefit of non-stick without the nasty chemicals.

The Dutch ovens are available in 1 3/4, 4 1/4 and 7 1/2-qt sizes and come in really wonderful vibrant colors: yellow, green, red, blue, orange, black and brown.
