This Editor-Favorite Dutch Oven Just Debuted in a Dreamy New Neutral Colorway — Snag It Before It’s Gone
There’s a special excitement that happens around here at Kitchn when news of a product launch reaches our ears. And when it’s from a brand we know and love, we’re even more thrilled to know what new features, colorways, and products are rolling out. Case in point: Made In. The direct-to-consumer company — which touts a wide selection of kitchen must-haves, from nonstick cookware and timeless bakeware to expertly crafted cutlery — recently introduced their highly anticipated Dutch Oven to the market to mega-praise (we’re talking selling out in mere hours, people!). Well, now this cookware staple is back in a very chic colorway that will make neutral kitchen fans absolutely giddy. Appropriately dubbed Linen and available with not one but two customizable knobs (silver and gold), this timeless hue joins two other options from the brand: an inky blue and a fire engine red. Linen is the ideal option for someone who prefers a subtle look, and it’s so pretty that this Dutch oven can easily be stored on your stovetop as kitchen decor when not in use.
The best part? The new Linen colorway boasts all the well-loved details of its predecessors. Produced in France in partnership with a company that has been making enameled cast iron for over a century, Made In’s Dutch has many of the same features as pricier models. Sized at a useful 5.5 quarts, it mirrors the rounded shape of a Le Creuset, and it boasts the cast iron design and smooth enamel surface that we love. It also has raised studs under the lid (similar to a Staub) to catch liquid and let the condensation drip back down, keeping your food moist while it cooks.
Like any Dutch oven, this one is great for searing, braising, baking, sautéing, and more. When we put it to the test, we found that it heats evenly, retais moisture well, and doesn’t scorch any food. We especially loved how it sears meats, giving food a deep and even caramelization. Even with such perfect browning happening, the surface instantly deglazes with just a splash of wine or broth. Basically, this Dutch oven will become essential in your kitchen for a long time to come, especially with all the hearty fall cooking on the horizon.
