Tramontina Enameled Cast Iron 6.5 Qt Covered Round Dutch Oven
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this after researching Dutch ovens and while I'm sure that the Le Creuset ones are very nice to use, I have champagne taste on a tap water budget. I picked this up for 55 dollars after wanting an enamel lined Dutch oven for years. Cooks Illustrated rates this brand well and seeing how they put the products they test through extensive trials, I went ahead and spluged on myself. This pot is heavy. This is a good thing! It conducts heat so perfectly. Once it's fired up, you will find that you use a far lower heat. By comparison, I have a stainless pot with a decent bottom on it and will have to crank the gas up a considerable amount to get similar results. Some reviewers (for the other colors) complain of the enamel staining. This is still fairly new but I suspect they may not have paid attention to the heat and/or used utensils that caused slight abrasions in the enamel. Now don't get me wrong, my kitchen equipment has to be serviceable in an industrial kind of way or it...
Tramontina is a well known manufacturer of high quality cookware and this 6.5 Qt Dutch Oven is no exception. From an aesthetic point of view, the blue/green graduated color is very pleasing, offset by the chromed lid handle. More importantly, from the functional standpoint, this heavy enameled cast iron pot, provides excellent heat distribution, a fine seal to the lid and in terms of size, the 6.5 Qt capacity is ideal for preparation of family meals.
I purchased this item from Amazon at full price and would highly recommend it to anyone considering a similar purchase. I have found that Tramontina products are excellent value for the money and this is no exception.
Our first recipe was Rachel Ray's Chicken Paprikash. Sorry I can't post any pictures... It was so delicious that by the time I went for my camera, it was all gone! :) I'll post a picture next time we make it.
So far so good; gumbos, stroganoffs and many more successful dishes! Aside from some scratches in the enamel from a pretty jagged wooden spoon (my fault, I'll admit), this thing is well built, and also very pretty. Use silicone tongs (Amazon search Kitzini for some dope ones) and you'll have a power couple. Get out the way Le Creuset!
