One of the best all-in-one pots is the Emile Henry Flame Top 5 1/2 qt. Ceramic Dutch Oven. This dutch oven from Emile Henry is perfect for cooking soups and stews because it’s designed to absorb and hold heat, spreading it to your food slowly and evenly. You can also use it on almost any cooking surface including electric and gas stoves! We made a delicious potato soup and this Emile dutch oven was essential.
This pan has a huge advantage over other ceramic cookware because you can use it on an open flame. As a result, it’s better at searing or browning ingredients before you add liquid. The browning capabilities of this Flame Top pan from Emile Henry came in handy and we were able to use it to render bacon and deglaze onions for the soup base.
Even storage is a snap. When you’re finished cooking, you can simply leave the food and pot to cool and then place it straight into the refrigerator.
Additionally, you can go straight from the fridge to the oven or stove top when reheating any leftovers and it’s safe to put into the microwave.
