Non-stick Dutch Oven, the unsung hero of the kitchen

curiouspeter | Aug 7, 202109:46 AM     11

It turns out I use my cheap T-Fal non-stick dutch oven quite a bit, even though I rarely use it as a dutch oven. However, it is surprisingly good at tasks like making fried rice. In a pinch, you can even fry eggs. I would say it is a better choice than a wok for most people.

I own a wok that I rarely use. It is imposing and it just does not heat well. I have gas stoves. I suppose it will be far worse on electric coil or induction.

On the other hand, a non-stick dutch oven with a full-width flat bottom heats well. The tall walls prevent splattering. And did I mention it is cheap?

I just love it. Yet I can't fall in love with it. Non-stick is disposable. Too bad.
