If you had to buy one piece of enameled cast iron, there’s really no debate: a Dutch oven is your most versatile option. Unfortunately, the classic French brands we love are a serious investment and can cost several hundred dollars, depending on the size you choose. Thankfully, tastemaker extraordinaire Martha Stewart created one of our

favorite affordable Dutch ovens

whole lot cheaper right now during Macy’s huge
Summer Sale. Originally $180, the
6-quart Dutch oven costs just $72 (!) and is perfect for anyone looking to snag a good-sized kitchen essential without breaking the bank!

To be clear, this is not a cheap pot by any means. Constructed from weighty cast iron and coated in glossy, non-reactive enamel, it has the temperature-retention properties necessary for maintaining heat to gently cook and braise meats and stews. If you’ve jumped on the sourdough train, you’ll be happy to know that the 6-quart pot can bake a loaf of bread and even a small chicken. Both the pot and lid are oven-proof up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, the bright shamrock green is a fun and vibrant addition to any dinner table!

As we inch closer to summer, this Dutch oven will play a key role in your kitchen. Use it to make large batches of sauce from the first ripe tomatoes of the season, or as a festive vessel for cooking and serving steamed lobster or shellfish. And since cast iron is good for retaining temperature in general, you can use it to keep chilled soups and gazpachos cold. In a pinch, I sometimes fill my Dutch oven with ice to serve as a backup wine chiller!

If you’re looking for something a bit roomier, Martha Stewart’s 8-quart Dutch oven is also included in the Macy’s sale for $104 (normally $260), and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more affordable 4-quart Dutch oven — which is only $49 (normally $160) right now. Both sizes come in a wide range of poppy and neutral colors to help build out your own enameled cast iron collection.

The Summer Sale runs through May 17, and besides the classic Dutch ovens, includes a ton more deals on cookware and essentials from Martha Stewart’s bright and cheery kitchen collection!
