Le Creuset 5.3L Round French Oven - White
The Round Dutch Oven is among the most versatile pieces of cookware and can be used for a number of cooking techniques, including slow cooking, simmering, braising and searing. Its rounded shape perfectly matches the burner size, exposing ingredients to a consistent heat source.
Le Creuset's Enamelled Cast Iron has been the world quality benchmark for almost a century and is built to last from generation to generation. Le Creuset refined the original Dutch Oven from the 18th century, replacing the pure cast iron with enamelled cast iron. Today, the Dutch Oven is a staple in kitchens across Canada.
The Dutch Oven is perfectly designed for slowly simmering soups and stews and is even versatile enough to be used for baking. This iconic piece of cookware locks in heat and flavour with its tight-fitting lid, continuously basting ingredients as they slow cook.

Why we love it: This French oven will become the busiest pot in your kitchen. Well-sized for frequent use, it is great for boiling grains, blanching vegetables, deep frying, baking bread, and, of course, soups and stews.
Le Creuset light-colored enamel makes it so easy to see the progress of the sear on proteins, to gauge the darkness of flavorful fond and caramelizing onions, or to see the tip of a deep-frying thermometer. This versatile workhorse is perfect for maintaining consistent heat whether you are searing, saut√©ing or simmering.¬†
Heirloom quality, this pot will be a welcome sight for your clan of happy eaters as they feast on a light and flavorful bouillabaisse, a saucy and fragrant tagine, a cozy pot of pho or a fried chicken fiesta etc.
Large loop handles make it easy to move the pot from stove top, to the oven, to the table, and finally to the dishwasher for deceptively easy meal-making for decades.
