We wouldn’t think of using most ceramic cookware on the stove, but this Dutch oven from Emile Henry’s Flame Top line is a different story. Made from a durable new ceramic material, it can sit on a hot gas or electric burner without cracking. And unlike cast-iron Dutch ovens, this pot can go in the microwave and dishwasher.
The glaze is supposedly extremely resistant to chipping and scratching, and while our pot still looks great after a couple of months’ use, we haven’t had it long enough to fully assess its durability. Flame Top pots come in black and red and range from about $70 for a 1.8-liter round pot to $170 for a 6-liter oval.
