Circulon Dutch Oven Review

A Dutch oven, sometimes also called a camp oven, is a nice addition to any kitchen.

If you're in the market for one, take a look at the Circulon Dutch Oven .

Where traditional Dutch ovens are made out of very hefty cast iron, this one has been crafted in hard-anodized aluminum with a stainless steel base.

This combination makes the pot far easier to move from stovetop to oven, while maintaining the traditional one-pot meal appeal.

Positive Features

The Circulon Dutch Oven is certainly a sturdy product. Like many Circulon cookware products it has hi-low wave technology that protects the nonstick surface while also distributing heat evenly. The handle has been crafted from stainless steel that’s secured by rivets into the pan.

Additionally the exterior of this pot is also nonstick, making for easy cleanup.

Better still this Dutch Oven is safe up to 500 degrees in your stove, and can go into the dishwasher! The real treat of this Dutch oven is not having to season it to enjoy the ease of nonstick cooking.


If you have a glass top stove you have to be very careful with this Dutch Oven. If you put a hot pot on a cold burner, you can do serious damage to your stove.

Some reports have said that the nonstick exterior washes off leaving a rather tattered appearance, and that the construction of this pot isn’t as heavy as earlier models.

Price wise this retails for a hefty $100 unless you buy it on sale ($50). $50 is justifiable but $100 for one 5 ½ quart pan – not so much so. Finally you may find the performance on this pot not as satisfying as a traditional cast iron one.

Consumer Reviews

Other than the Circulon Dutch Oven’s limitations on a glass top stoves, consumer feedback has been very positive regarding this pot.

Specifically buyers say that even after seriously burning food the pan cleans up with fantastic ease. They also seem to like the size – not too small or too huge, making it ideal for a variety of meals.

The Circulon Dutch Oven is a nice choice for one-pot cooking, but not one recommended for campfire settings (it’s just too expensive to take on the road).

Inside the kitchen, this Dutch oven performs admirably particularly in terms of the nonstick surface.

The fact that this piece can go from stovetop to oven to dishwasher is a great feature that many people appreciate.
