Dutch and French cast iron ovens
A Dutch oven is ideal for slow-cooking large amounts of stew as well as braised meat that is melt-in-your-mouth tender. Perfect for large families, they are typically made from cast iron and can be used on all cooking surfaces, including stovetop, oven and campfire. The Lodge Logic Cast Iron Dutch Oven holds 4.7L and comes pre-seasoned.
A French oven is similar to a Dutch oven but is enamelled so that it doesn’t require seasoning. French ovens are extremely versatile and can be used to cook everything from Sunday roasts to poultry and brisket. Add a pop of colour to your cookware with a stunning Chasseur French oven in Mediterranean Blue, Inferno Red and more.
Stock pots for cooking soups and larger meals
A stock pot is the perfect pot for simmering soups and stocks with complex flavours. They have tall sides for slow evaporation and long cooking times. The Scanpan Impact Multipot Set includes a stockpot with lid, steamer and pasta strainer to convert your stockpot into a big pasta pot for cooking large family dinners.
Casserole pots perfect for that delicious slow cooked meal
A casserole pot has shallower walls than a Dutch oven and can be made from cast iron, stainless steel, aluminium and more. It’s ideal for slow-cooking stews and casseroles but can also be used to sear meats for a crusty exterior, sweat onions, make gravy and much more. The Classica Round Heavy Duty Enamel Casserole Pot comes in a range of bright colours and is made from enamelled carbon steel for even cooking and browning.
Fondue Sets for entertaining with a difference
Get the party started with a classic fondue set! We have fondue pots for cheese, oil and chocolate with electric, tea light and fondue burner sets available. The Swissmar Sierra Fondue Set in Cherry Red is a stunner with 11 pieces, including a cast iron pot with splatter guard and 6 colour-coded forks for guests to dip bread, meat, cake and more.
Non-stick to cast iron - materials to look out for when purchasing your new cooking pot
Cookware pots can be made from a huge variety of materials, each with their own benefits. Check out some of the most popular materials:
Stainless steel - Stainless steel cookware is lightweight, durable and dishwasher-safe. It’s usually paired with copper or aluminium for more even heat distribution.
Cast iron - Cast iron is ideal for heavy-duty cooking and requires seasoning to retain its natural non-stick surface. It’s oven-safe and also suitable for cooktops, including induction, as well as campfire. Enamelled cast iron does not require seasoning and is easier to maintain.
Non-stick - Non-stick cookware has a non-stick coating that enables easy food release and prevents bits from sticking which makes cleaning up afterwards a breeze. It’s great for cooking healthy meals with less oil.
Hard anodised aluminium - This material is extremely durable and offers excellent heat conductivity. It’s also rust-proof and non-reactive so you can cook acidic foods in it.
Ceramic - Ceramic cookware pots are lighter than cast iron and provide great heat insulation which makes them suited to slow-cooking at even temperatures.

What pot is good for cooking?
If you enjoy versatility, choose oven-safe cookware that can easily go from cooktop to oven for cooking the widest range of dishes. Dutch Ovens and French ovens are excellent for simmering food long and slow on stovetops, as well as searing, braising, boiling, baking and much more. Soups and stews work well in a stock pot that provides gradual evaporation while a casserole dish is a one-pot wonder that can be used to do everything from brown meat and reduce gravy to simmer casseroles and bake lasagna with crispy edges.
What is the best cookware pot?
The best cookware pot for you will depend on what you intend to cook. A Dutch oven is best for braising and slow-cooking big chunks of meat and veggies, while a casserole pot is ideal for simmering stews and casseroles all day long. A stock pot will make hearty soup or pasta for a large family and a French oven will do everything a Dutch oven will but is enamelled for easier cleaning and maintenance.
If you’re having friends over, a fondue set is a fun and entertaining way to feed a group of up to 6 people with guests being able to dip assorted food into a pot of melted cheese, chocolate or hot oil!
What pot can you use for cooking rice?
A stock pot is great for cooking rice, especially for a larger number of people. They have sides so that you can easily add water and are lightweight for straining when done. Stainless steel stockpots are excellent as they promote even heat distribution while non-stick pots ensure the rice won’t stick to the bottom. If you’re in a hurry, a pressure cooker will cook fluffy rice in half the time that’s more texturised and healthier for you.
