Use It

For slow-cooking pot roasts and making stews, soups, and chili.

From Stovetop to Oven

This pot has a thick bottom and sides with a snug, tight-fitting lid that traps in moisture and flavor. With the lid off, it's perfect for browning meat or vegetables on the stovetop, and it can also go into the oven for even cooking.

Make It Sturdy

Look for a heavy 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven made of anodized aluminum, enameled cast iron, or stainless steel around a copper or aluminum base. The sides and bottom must be thick in order to retain and evenly distribute heat, and to prevent hot spots. Handles and knob should be sturdy and ovenproof.

I have a while 6 quart enamel pot. The enamel is not chipping off by about the size of a half dollar coin. What is the warranty on this? I purchased at Macy’s and they will not honor as its over 90 days. I have had this about 3 years and use it 4 or 5 times a year.

PS: re: the blue enamel Dutch oven. My safety question is about ingesting the enamel not the pots looks. Thanks. Sharon

My blue enamel Dutch oven has lost some of its enamel, about a quarter-size piece. Is it dangerous to use? Please respond. Thank you. Sharon

I loved my pot and had it for barely 3 years. Didn't get to use it much and yesterday it developed a bubble in the ensemble the size of a quarter abs the enable is disintegrating. Macys said it needs to be less than a year old and re sellable. What a crock of junk! Hey Macy's, I'm never going to make this mistake again! I hope Martha stands by her product.

I have a Martha Stewart dutch oven that has enamel chipping off the bottom. I can't use this pot anymore. How can I get another pot for this one?

I purchased a large Martha Stewart blue dutch oven at Macy's. At the most I have used it possibly a dozen times and was happy with it until the knob on the lid came off. I have tried to reattach the knob but the screw keeps coming off making the heavy lid difficult to remove. Is there any way that I can get just a replacement for the lid and is there any guarantee that it won't happen again. This seems to be a major defect in the product and I am very disappointed.

My children recently bought me a Martha Stewart Enamel Dutch Oven, blue colored, from a farmers market. Mostly looks in good condition, but the bottom cooking surface is stained. Fisrt, how should I clean the stained enamel inside the Duct Oven? Second, what steps do I take for general cleaning of an enamel Dutch Oven? I assume you do not need to season the enamel style of Dutch Oven, like you do with a regular cast iron Dutch Oven, but please let me know. Thank You, Scott

Hi, for Mothers Day last year I asked my husband to get me a Martha Stewart 8qt. round Dutch oven. I only just started using it a few months ago and lets just say that I am very disappointed. I have followed the instructions and EVERYTHING I cook either burns or sticks. I was so very excited when I got it because I always wanted one and now it is just taking up space in my cabinet. Very disappointed customer.

Hi, I understand there is a recall on the Martha Stewart Enamel dutch oven. I no longer have a receipt, and would like to return my item so that I can purchase another one. Please advise on how to return this dutch oven without receipt.

I have a Martha Stewart dutch oven and a HUGE chunk of the enamel has chipped off the bottom straight through to the cast iron… I called Macy's where it was purchased for me as a gift and they will not exchange it for me without a recipe (which is absurd since they are the only ones who sell this product). I'm wondering if there is anything that I can do besides never buy a Martha Stewart product again for the rest of my life.

I'm wondering if a person can cook biscuits in the dutch oven, like when on a camping trip, with propane heat. Or should I go back to a Lodge dutch oven?

I found the Dutch Oven technique left a horrible residue and taste in my mouth. Would not recommend.

@APRogers - try soaking it soap water overnight or 2. If it doesn't work, add some cleaning agents. This article might help you to clean off your stained French oven. http://www.cookwareinsider.com/resources/clean-burnt-le-creuset/

APRogers - Baking Soda & Vinegar (equal proportions) and a good stiff brush always did it for me Tpeters685 - Try a stainless steel replacement knob (it has a higher temperature allowance over MS's thermal plastic handle.

"all of the red enamel melted off the bottom and onto my cooktop. ..." ---------------------------------------------------------------- The ONLY way that could have happened is if you had the burner temp WAY TOO HIGH! On enameled cast iron pots....MEDIUM IS HIGH! Never, ever cook with enabled cast iron on higher heat than the MEDIUM setting. Cast iron take a long time to heat up, but once hot, it retains its heat for a very long time, so higher than medium heat is unnecessary and dangerous.

I purchased two Martha Stewart pots about a year ago. The pots are chipping inside the pot and lid. What will MS do about this? They were quite expensive. Thanks, Peggy

I do. But the trick is to let it come to room temperature first.

Can I cook something in my Martha Stewart enamel cast iron pot, put it into the refrigerator and then reheat it the next day without the pot cracking?
