Tramontina Dutch Oven Review

Tramontina dutch oven

The following is our review of the Tramontina Dutch Oven cooking vessel range.

Tramontina is a brand of Dutch Ovens which is often a lower-cost choice and we understand is made in China.

“Dutch ovens” suggests a large household appliance, but in reality, these are simply well-made cooking pots with tight-fitting lids. They are perfect for slow cooking roasts and casseroles and have a large following in the cooks and chefs that find them indispensable.

Other terms used are cocotte, braisers, and casserole dishes. They normally have side handles for easy lifting and steadying then while stirring. The lids on dutch ovens retain steam and their thickness ensures an even heat when cooking or braising food.

Originally these were only available from long-established designers and brands. These included Le Creuset®, Mario Batali®, and All–Clad®, but in recent years manufacturers have begun making them in the Far East and these are finding their way into the US at prices which can be very attractive.

Tramontina Dutch Oven Review Video

We have recorded our own review of the Tramontina Dutch Oven in the video below. It is real buyer feedback from this seller's Amazon.Com website.

The large, heavy pot which is the stamp of a good dutch oven, has the advantage that it is suitable for both stove-top or oven use. Many people remember the extra-heavy cast iron, enameled pots that their parents bought, and used when they were only available from manufacturers such as Le Creuset and Staub.

These are very hard-wearing pots, and very much come into their own on a range type cooker, for slowly-simmering soups and braised meats, as well as other favorite casseroles and meals which need the meat tenderizing over a long period.

For best results, we always recommend that Dutch Ovens should be cleaned immediately after they are used to avoid a build-up. Many people put some hot water into it and let it soak while they eat their meal.


About Tramontina

To conclude our Tramontina dutch oven review here is information on the company and its products.

Tramontina is a leading manufacturer of houseware products that are not only beautiful and functional but represent the highest quality, craftsmanship, and value.

The company makes cookware, especially for induction cooking. Induction cooking has been widely used all over the world and is now making its way into the hearts of American kitchens. They are specialists in developing the future of cooking technology, which is why so much of their cookware was made induction-ready from the start.

Tramontina makes cookware in a variety of materials. Here's a quick run-through of the pros and cons of some of them:

Aluminum’s OK for light use duties, and its low weight makes it a favorite for camping cooking equipment but go for tougher, nonstick alternatives for really long-term wear. Nevertheless, aluminum has good conductivity and it will heat your food evenly and is super versatile.

If you want something that’s lightweight and ultra-sleek, go for stainless steel. Another advantage of stainless steel is that it conducts heat very well to ensure even cooking. It's very durable and heats evenly, making it ideal for searing, simmering, and oven use. Plus, stainless steel can be naturally nonstick once given the right treatment.

But for ultimate long life and great conductivity, most people prefer cast-iron which is also ductile so that it isn't brittle in the way your mother's cast-iron utensils may have been. It won't break in use, and the glass enamel coated surface is far more abrasion resistant than alternatives.

But not every cookware is worth the name, which is why you have to watch out the items you settle for. Tramontina is among the highest contenders in the production of kitchenware.

They have wide range of quality cookware pieces that cover every cook's needs and make the process hassle-free. Not to mention their excellent assortment of meal prepping tools that will help show off your culinary skills. via cookingpotsnpans.com
