In the kitchen, there's no tool more versatile than a Dutch oven. It's an all-around kitchen workhorse you can use to bake, broil, roast, braise, simmer and boil. It can cook meats, side dishes and even desserts. The only downside is that you often have to pay a pretty penny for a high-quality, enameled cast-iron Dutch oven.
Not anymore, though. The Pioneer Woman has released a $25 Dutch oven that comes in an adorable pumpkin shape. We already trust the Pioneer Woman's cookware. Her basic nonstick metal baking sheets and simple bakeware are some of BestReviews editors' favorites, and her products are cute, of good quality and always affordable. So, if you're looking for a Dutch oven this fall, here it is, and she has other pumpkin-themed cast iron cookware to go with it.
