Whether you’re an avid home cook or just starting out on your culinary journey, having one or two really durable, high quality, and versatile kitchen utensils can enhance your meals, make cleaning easier, and inspire you to create delicious meals. When I was in my early 30s, I realized that I wasn’t cute enough to no longer know how to feed myself, and I learned how to cook right, starting with the basics and moving on to more complex dishes. These days, I enjoy the habit of making dinner every day, and the utensils I’ve accumulated over the past decade have played a role in that.
When I first started cooking, my parents gave me a set of enamelled cast iron pans, and since then I’ve discovered that enameled cast iron has become my favorite cooking material. It’s a great alternative to regular cast iron because it conducts heat in a similar way, but I find it less sticky, easier to clean, and more aesthetically pleasing. This is a great financial investment: durable, reliable and versatile. Since then, my collection has grown to include Dutch ovens, pans and pans, and I just can’t get enough of them.
As it turns out, I’m not the only one who’s absolutely obsessed with enamelled cast iron cookware. I reached out to some of the most dedicated home cooks I know, including co-workers, friends, and my mother, to see what cookware they recommend. Below, I’ve rounded up what these avid home cooks (and I) consider to be the best enameled cast iron pots, pans, pots, broilers and more. All of them are tried and true options for even the pickiest of chefs. Read on to choose one for yourself and get ready for some really delicious meals.
