If, like me, you’re resistant to the idea of shelling out over $350 for a Dutch oven but still crave the elevated quality it lends to everyday cooking, then you’re probably on the lookout for more budget-friendly alternatives. Thankfully, there’s a slew of great options to choose from. But if we were asked to pick our favorites, then DTC brand Milo’s Dutch oven would definitely be among them. Besides being on every single Kitchn editor’s wishlist this past Christmas, it’s also backed with rave reviews! And from now through June 18, the already affordable 3.5-qt. Dutch oven is an extra 20 percent off at Verishop as part of their one-year anniversary sale!

So what makes Milo’s Dutch oven as good as the ones from big brands like Staub and Le Creuset? For starters, it’s built using high-quality cast iron that evenly distributes heat, allowing meat to sear and brown without burning. The surface also does a great job of retaining heat for hours so that slow-cooked items can thicken to utter perfection. “After putting the Milo through its paces — making stews, braises, pasta sauce and soup — I have absolutely no complaints,” says Kitchn writer Danielle, who tested Milo’s Dutch oven. “It performed as well as my Le Creuset and Staub, with minor differences in browning and evaporation that, in the end, didn’t affect the deliciousness of my meals.”

Just like most high-quality Dutch ovens, Milo’s is incredibly sturdy and built to withstand high cooking temperatures up to 500 degrees. That makes it ideal for giving dishes that extra touch of golden brown in the oven before making it to the dinner table. Another pro? It cleans up quickly and is resistant to stains, scratches and chips. Each pot also has a lifetime warranty, so you’ll be enjoying perfectly cooked meals for years.

While Milo’s Dutch ovens come in two sizes — 5.5-qt. and 3.5 qt. — currently, only the smaller size is available at Verishop, and it’s just right for everyday cooking! And if you’re short on cabinet space, you’ll definitely appreciate how compact it is. Pick between two classic colors — an eggshell white and beautiful black, and Verishop will ship your order for free in two days or less!

Whichever color you choose, Milo’s Dutch oven is a superb alternative to pricier versions while still offering superior quality and performance. And while you’re visiting Verishop, be sure to also check out the rest of the anniversary sale, which includes top deals on kitchen brands like Staub, Smeg, and Skagerak.
