Like the signature complexion of Le Creuset’ cast iron products, the Crock-Pot Artisan Dutch Oven has a soft ombre finish and comes in 5 colours: blush pink, scarlet red, aqua, gradient teal, and pistachio green.
Moreover, these dutch ovens are made of easy-to-clean porcelain enamel, and they’re pretty versatile in terms of functions. Whether it’s baking a loaf of bread or cooking up a hearty stew, these ovens will not easily let you down.

The hyper-realistic contouring and finish of this cocotte might just fool you into thinking it’s an actual pumpkin. Other than the fact that it caters to more subtle aesthetic tastes with its other 2 colours – white and black – its classy look is elevated by the golden stem of an accent on its lid.
Although not as coveted as Le Cruset, Staub is still a household name that’s sought after in the culinary world. It brings whimsical art and functionality together in a kitchenware piece that can be used to slow-cook meat and even bake pies. The craftsmanship is so exquisite, it can be used as statement serving bowl during events when you have friends or family over.

5. Our Place Perfect Pot – One-pot solution
You might have heard about Our Place’s Perfect Pan, which quickly sold out after it went viral on social media in 2022. Well, this original cult fav now has a sister – the Perfect Pot.
Like its predecessor, it has a clean, muted complexion complete with a smooth matte finish. It comes in 8 fun colours and is known for being made of non-toxic materials, sporting a non-stick coating, and coming with a nesting spatula. You’ll also get a roasting and steaming rack along with it.
The Perfect Pot has a lightweight cast aluminium body, as well as a built-in strainer in its pour sprout – a great feature for when you need to cook rice and pasta.
