This Cuisinart Classic Dutch Oven passed all of our tests with flying colors and was our overall winner. During our jambalaya preparation test, this Dutch oven earns high marks: “The browning went very well and didn’t stick at all,” noted our product tester. She to he prepared the rice in a Dutch oven and said the rice “cooked great.” It didn’t burn, it just cooked nice and nice and evenly. “Great cooking performance – two thumbs up!’ Gloves fit comfortably and securely under the handles of this Dutch oven, which also performed well in our durability test. After When I hit it a few times with a metal spoon, there was only a very tiny chip on the lid coating. This piece proved to be strong and sturdy.
