Amazon never ceases to amaze us with its myriad of homeware offerings, especially since they鈥檙e often priced well below what we鈥檇 pay in brick-and-mortar stores. Case in point: the *shockingly* affordable version of the cult classic Le Creuset Dutch oven we recently stumbled upon.

If you鈥檙e a kitchenware buff, you鈥檙e probably familiar with Le Creuset, AKA the French brand behind some of the world鈥檚 most iconic Dutch ovens 鈥 with a price tag that reflects its icon status (many cost around $300).

The aforementioned Amazon find, however, costs a mere $45. The Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven, as it鈥檚 called, is part of the Amazon Basics kitchenware collection, and it鈥檚 practically identical to its pricier counterpart: Think cast iron finish, circular design, looped side handles, and a durable wear that evenly distributes heat. What鈥檚 more, the Amazon Dutch Oven boasts an overwhelming majority of five star reviews on Amazon. (There are a few four-star reviews, but nothing below!)

And the written reviews are equally as positive. 鈥淚 ruined my Le Creuset Dutch oven and could not afford to replace it,鈥 one reviewer stated. 鈥淭his is every bit as good for much less money. I wish they made other pieces to create a set.鈥 So do we, so do we.

What do you think of Amazon鈥檚 version of the Le Creuset Dutch oven? Let us know @BritandCo!
