Le Creuset Dutch Oven: This is my go-to pot!! I mean, for how expensive it is, it should be the best pot ever, and IT IS! I use it to make stew, risotto, pasta, rice, beans, bread, queso and so much more!. It's like an all in one magic pot that browns beautifully, like a pan, but will hold a full meal. I know it is very expensive but save up, treat yourself, or ask your rich uncle for a gift. I promise you, you will have this cookware forever.
