dutch oven

So… after reading Decorno’s post on a dutch oven, it’s got me thinking. The Barefoot Contessa is always using them on her show, and everyone has them listed on registries, but do people really use them? I can’t see spending so much money on one item (Le Creuset) in the kitchen, but if I want to become a master chef, don’t I need the proper tools?

These are my favorite options-

Mario Batali’s Dutch Oven – 6 quart

Le Creuset Dutch Oven – 5 1/2 quart

What do you think? Do you use a dutch oven? Would you recommend that I register for one of these bad boys? Does anyone have experience with using one on an electric cooktop? HELP!

    I own 3 (5.5 qt., 7.25 qt., 3.5 qt), and use all of them constantly! In fact, I used all 3 today. One for soup, one for bread, and one to braise greens. Mine are Le Creuset, and are worth every penny. Register away!
