Expand your abilities in the kitchen with the Calphalon 8-qt. Contemporary Stainless Steel Dutch Oven, a versatile piece of cookware that lets you make everything from stews to braised meats. This extra-large pot has room for large cuts of meat or poultry, so it's easy to prepare a special meal for the entire family or a room full of dinner guests. It's made of stainless steel with a heavy-gauge aluminum core, so you get great heat conduction throughout the entire inner surface. Stainless steel loop handles let you shift the pot on the burner or move it from stovetop to table easily, and they are double riveted for reliability. This piece works equally well on induction, gas and electric stovetops, and you can use metal cooking utensils without worrying about scratching the inner surface. The contemporary design of this Dutch oven works well in modern kitchens, and the bright stainless steel exterior matches most kitchen decor, so you can leave your cookware out on display when you aren't using it. The included tempered-glass lid makes it easy to watch over your food as it cooks, since you can peer into the pot without opening the lid and releasing heat or moisture. When you need to open the lid to stir your food or mix in additional ingredients, the curved top handle is comfortable to grasp. The pot is oven safe to any temperature, and the lid can handle oven temperatures up to 450 degrees F, so you can use multiple cooking methods without having to move food into a separate vessel. When it's time to clean up, this piece is dishwasher safe.

  • Calphalon Dutch Oven

    Love the fact this is wider instead of taller as most dutch ovens - make it very easy to cook corn on the cob in this pot.

  • FAR exceeded my expectations

    I've always had good luck with items I order from the Food Network Store, so I was expecting a good quality Dutch Oven to arrive at my house. For $99 I didn't expect "top of the line", but I was WRONG! This Calphalon Dutch Oven is absolutely perfect! I've braised short ribs, slow-roasted a pork butt, made coq au vin and cooked up a pot of chili in the little over a week since I have had it! I love, love, love the size, weight, appearance, and ease of cleaning this pot. The height-to-diameter ratio is just perfect for layering those all-important veggies in the bottom and placing a large piece of meat on top, with plenty of room for luscious liquids to bubble and simmer away without seeping out from under the lid. I'm going to ask for another one for Christmas!

    I recommend this product.

    The large capacity of this dutch oven makes it very versatile. A good quality stainless steel dutch oven of this size, at a price that won't break the bank, is hard to find. I like that it is more wide than it is deep, that I can put it in the dishwasher, and I love its modern look. Calphalon is a name I trust and I know I will have this for years. This dutch oven is the nicest piece of cookware I own!

    I recommend this product.

  • I cook from scratch since many years ago and everyday, but it's not just the need for a good pot, I also cook LARGE amounts of food, so this pot has the right size for those of us cooks who need plenty of cooking surface.
