The Amazon Basics ones are awesome, beautiful and sometimes go on sale for $35.

First, get yourself a standard 10" cast iron skillet.

Next, an enamel dutch oven from amazon.

A ~3 piece ceramic and enamel or teflon pan set from Costco (pick them up and play with them to make sure you get a sturdy set since brands and models vary.)

Ah, I'd actually suggest not one with a glass lid. You can't use that above 350F which precludes some recipes. I'd pick this at the same price: https://www.amazon.ca/AmazonBasics-Enameled-Cast-Iron-Dutch/dp/B073Q9K2H3

I have a 7qt oval Lodge, which is holding up well (I've been using lodge enamel cast iron for 4ish years and I only have a couple really minor less-than-pea-sized chips around the lid where I bang my spoon or put the lid down extra-vigorously). I have friends who use and enjoy Tramontina, Cuisinart, and Crofton (Aldi brand) and even (god help me for dropping a bezos link) AmazonBasics.

That being said, if I'm ever rolling in dough I might upgrade for ~!~aesthetic~!~ reasons. Aside from glaze quality, Le Creuset is a little bit lighter and has nice big handles, both of which slightly improve ease-of-use. Who knows.

I find 6-8qt the optimal range. I can make a pound or two of beans, a nice loaf of bread, a big 6-8 person stew all without overflowing. I've used friends 4qt and it's always just a little tight. If you're gonna have just one, 6-8qt seems an ideal size, IMO.

A thing worth noting is that even if your cast iron chips over the years, it's still perfectly food safe (ATK).


  • Amazon Basics 6qt: $43
  • Lodge 6qt: $60
  • Le Creuset 5.5qt: $300-350

    So, you could replace your cheap one 5-7 times before matching the Le Creuset price. Obviously YMMV, but it strikes me at potentially worth trialing an inexpensive one for a couple years first. You know your habits and preferences best, though.
