The Le Creuset 5 ¼ qt. Round Deep Dutch Oven is a taller version of the 4 ½ qt. oven. With 20% more capacity, it doesn't take up more stovetop space. Containing splatters when deep-frying and reducing the risk of boil-overs are great benefits of the added height. The tall sides can also retain moisture and flavor by limiting evaporation. Unlike other cast iron, the Le Creuset Dutch Oven needs no seasoning because of its interior enamel coating. Available in the three most popular colors of Le Creuset's gorgeous, brightly colored enamel.
