A Dutch oven is a kitchen staple for anyone who loves to cook. They're perfect for pot roast, soup or really any dish you want to roast, braise or slow cook in the oven or on the stove top. While Le Creuset is the gold standard and most quintessential Dutch oven on the market (which we love, btw!), not everyone can justify the higher price tag that comes with it. Luckily, you don't have to sacrifice function or style if Le Creuset doesn't fit your budget. We've rounded up the best Dutch ovens that are less than $200 and perfect for novice and expert cooks alike.

Psst...if you're really in the market for a Le Creuset at a lower cost, we recommend shopping the brand's annual Factory to Table sale that's now online, checking out eBay and yard sales for gently worn ovens or taking a look at the sale section of for lesser-loved colors with extra inventory.

In testing, we dubbed this Dutch oven our best overall due to its durability, affordability and quality cooking — meaning it hits all the important marks for a solid piece of cookware. The six quart capacity makes it big enough to hold a meal for the whole family, and we found it to cook evenly and be easy to clean.


Ceramic cookware is definitely making its mark in the culinary world, and this Dutch oven from Caraway is no exception. We loved this cookware line in testing, and found it to be durable, efficient and worthy of all cooking needs. Plus, if you're looking for an aesthetically pleasing design, it has you covered there, too.

Great Jones

Great Jones' cookware is probably most well known for bright colors and chic designs, but the cookware stands up in the kitchen, too. The oval shape of this Dutch oven makes it great for tackling bigger cooking projects. Plus, it's pretty enough to leave on the top of your stove even when you're not cooking.


While this Dutch oven by Milo is only oven safe up to 450 degrees F, making it slight less heast resistant than other brands, it's still a great option for a solid and affordable Dutch oven. The subtle, natural hues and simple design make it an aesthetically pleasing choice for any kitchen.


If you're looking to get the most value in your Dutch oven, we recommend this Misen model that has the option for a lid that doubles as a stove-top grill. Plus, the seven-quart size makes it perfect for tackling recipes fit for a large family or a weeks worth of meal-prep.

For the beginner chef who is looking for a good place to start when cooking with a Dutch oven, we recommend this 5-quart model by Crockpot. Much like others on this list, it's oven-safe up to 500 degrees F, cooks evenly and was easy to clean.
