Are casserole pots the same as Dutch ovens? Both pots may look similar, but they have different roles in the kitchen. Dutch ovens are made of cast iron and deeper than casserole pots, making them ideal for stewing and baking. Casserole pots or braisers are lighter and can be made of cast iron, stainless steel, copper or aluminium. Their shallow walls make them efficient for browning meats on the stovetop, cooking food gently in the oven and reducing sauces.
