What Can Be Cooked in a Dutch Oven?

Braising, sauteing, frying, soups, stews, pasta, rice, and sauces. Let’s not forget breakfasts, baking treats, and bread.

Cast-iron Dutch ovens are the most versatile and time-proven cooking pots you can own.

Can You Fry in a Dutch Oven?

Frying requires hot oil that can maintain an even heat and there is no better pot than a cast-iron Dutch oven that performs this task naturally.

Can I Use a Cast Iron Skillet Instead of a Dutch Oven?

You can for many recipes. Such as lasagne, risotto, frying foods, baking. The recipes you choose to cook in a skillet instead of a Dutch oven cannot have a large amount of liquid as the sides of the skillet are too low.
