The Brand Behind That Constantly Sold-Out Sauce Pan Created a Gorgeous New Cast-Iron Braiser
Misen is at it again: They’ve just released a brand-new, super-versatile piece of cookware perfect for anyone who loves their Dutch oven. We’re obviously huge fans of the Brooklyn-based direct-to-consumer brand here at Kitchn, with tons of editor-favorite picks like their highly coveted nonstick pan or range of affordable, impressive knives for the home cook. And if you love their Dutch oven as much as we do, you’ll be excited to hear about the Enameled Cast-Iron Braiser that has all the same features, except it’s more shallow and ready for everyday use.
We love using braisers to brown foods more effectively than a Dutch oven, thanks to their wide base which allows liquids to steadily evaporate. This Misen option is offered at a super reasonable price, too, making it accessible to more home cooks for all your roasting, searing, simmering, sautéing, baking, and — of course — your braising needs. Plus, in four gorgeous enamel colorways, it’ll look stunning resting on your stovetop or served straight from the oven on your dinner table!
This Misen braiser features a chip-resistant enamel finish, so you can rest assured when storing it in your cabinets that it won’t get damaged. Also, the smooth surface won’t hold on to sauces or liquids so its light interior won’t stain.
What really makes this braiser stand out is its straight-edged shape rather than having curved edges like most braisers. This design feature allows for a wide, flat cooking space so you can fit more food and ensure even heat distribution. It holds a whopping five quarts, perfect for feeding your entire family. We also love the wide handles, perfect for taking a piping hot dish out of the oven with a steady grip while using mitts.
