Giveaway: Anolon Tri-Ply 5 Quart Dutch Oven

anolon lid 640

Over the last few years, I’ve become something of a booster for stainless steel cookware. I like the fact that it’s durable, relatively light (at least if compared to enameled cast iron), and comparatively easy to clean. The easy to clean part is of particular importance because as an easily distracted person who frequently cooks sugary things, I occasionally find myself scorching or burning a batch of jam or jelly (it happens to the best of us).

When this happens in expensive enameled cast iron, the jig is up (at least in my experience). The cooking surface of that vessel is forever changed for the worse and the pot becomes increasingly prone to future burns. When you burn something in stainless steel, you can soak and scrub until the charred bits release their hold. Though the surface may bear marks of the burn, it will continue to serve.

And so, I’ve slowly been building my collection of stainless steel cookware (I still have some enameled pots and pans, but I save them for low heat and oven applications). I have a few pieces of All-Clad that were either picked up at a thrift store or bought at steep discount from Cookware & More. We added some nice pans from Anolon’s Nouvelle Cuisine line (thanks to this giveaway partnership) to the kitchen last year. And just recently, this Anolon Tri-Ply 5 Quart Dutch Oven joined my cookware line-up.

The nice folks at Anolon sent it over, thinking that it might be a good pan for the tiny batches of jam I often make. And they were absolutely right. It’s a terrific piece of cookware that is perfect for small batches of jams, jellies, and chutneys because of its low, wide design (it promotes fast evaporation!). I also like it for the soups and sauces I frequently make for dinner (it’s size helps keep me from cooking for an army, which is my natural default). And if you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive Dutch Oven in which to bake loaves of no-knead bread, look no further. This guy is oven safe up to 500 degrees F.

    My favourite would be my All Clad 12 ” skillet with lid. I use it all the time and love that I can put it under the grill and not have to worry about the noxic fumes that would emanate from a non-stick pot. Next up woul be my two pots that I bought at different times at TJ Max – they have glass lids (which I find very useful) and can go in the dishwasher (unlike my All Clad skillet).

    My favorite piece of cookware has changed over the years. I used to love my quesadilla maker until I realized I could make a better quesadilla myself in the skillet. If this counts I suppose my favorite piece of cookware is my crock pot! I LOVE that thing and it makes me so happy to have a meal cook all day and be ready come dinner time.

    I love my Pyrex baking dishes that I got at a garage sale years ago, during college. I can make practically anything in them – cakes, casseroles, gratin, roasted veggies, etc.

    Yay, just made it. My favorite piece of cookware, at least today, is my waffle iron. Rather a unitasker, but who doesn’t love Belgian waffles?

    Julie Domme says:

    My favorite piece of cookware is a 4 qt enameled cast iron Dutch oven. It’s the only piece I have that’s non-reactive, so it’s what I always use when it’s required (as for canning, etc). I love that it can also be used in the oven and looks great on the table as well. I’d love to have this pot though, because as you said, cast iron is SO heavy! Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    Without a doubt my go to will do anything for me is my 25 year old belgique stockpot. It has the metal lid, not a glass one and is great for sauce, stocks, making pasta…it’s the best

    Molly says:

    Generally, I love my blender/food processor combo. I make so many tasty, go-to dishes. But two months ago I was given a canning pot, rack, and related supplies for my birthday and that collection is now my absolute favorite!

    My favorite is my enamel lined cast iron dutch oven, but it is getting too heavy for me to use. I would love to replace it with a lighter stainless one.

    I absolutely love my Le Creuset dutch oven, but the enamel is wearing out from all the use!

    Hands down, my mom’s wok. My parents used to cook with it all the time when they were young, but over the years as us kids moved out it fell out of use. My mom gave it to me last year, and it’s amazing. It’s nothing fancy, just a basic smallish carbon steel wok, but years of cooking have made it the most nonstick piece of cookware I own. I take care of it like my baby!

    My favorite piece of cookware is a 3 qt Dutch oven. I use it every day. Sometimes more! It’s the perfect size for 4 servings of porridge, 2 servings of pasta, and cooks rice perfectly! I’m getting a set of cuisinart stainless steel cookware for Christmas! I have a couple pieces of calphalon and am excited to add to my SS.

    Just in time! My favorite pan is my enameled cast iron Lodge pan though I’m a teensy bit worried having just read your post. I made a super yummy pork roast in it last week, and yes, burnt a bit. The pan’s a tiny bit discolored inside but the wonderful cheery green outside is still, well, inspiring and smile-worthy! It’s a 6 quart size.

    So hard to decide! Probably my cast iron comal. It was my grandmother’s and I use it all the time for cooking, reheating, and toasting.
