I Tried the Great Jones Dutch Oven That Went Viral, and This Multitasker Is Worth the Hype
I have seen Great Jones all over Instagram and was intrigued by the trendy company. The women-founded brand is known for its functional yet stylish cookware that's intended to leave you inspired when thinking up meals. The most popular item sold on the site is definitely The Dutchess ($145), which is why I was thrilled to try it out for myself.
The big dutch oven arrived in the prettiest green box that got me excited to open it up and get to work in my kitchen. It comes in seven colours with fun names like Marinara (the newest shade), Broccoli, Mustard, and Blueberry. The enameled cast-iron pot works for the stove and oven, so you can cook practically anything in it. The design is meant to retain heat well, so you can also place it on your table for serving once you're ready to eat.
I decided to roast a chicken, and it was the easiest process ever. I filled the pot with a whole chicken, lemon, rosemary, spices, and white wine — the deep design allows everything to cook without spewing out everywhere. Once it was ready to go, it honestly looked like the prettiest thing I ever cooked while sitting inside the Dutchess. It was easy to lift, even with my hands in oven mitts. My friends served themselves straight from the pot.
I promise you, it's the greatest gift you could ever give to your kitchen.
Now what really impressed me is how easy it is to clean. I didn't have to spend ages scrubbing it down — even the tricky bits that cooked onto the pot slid right off with some dish soap and hot water. I love my dutch oven so much, I'm planning on buying the Broccoli shade for my mom — the true cook of the family.
