my first experience with enameled cast iron

Pictured above is an enameled cast iron pot.

I had written this article comparing enameled cast iron to regular cast iron.

Today was my first time using an enameled pot; I finally found one cheap enough to justify trying out.

I used it to slow cook beef brisket in the oven.

One thing I will say: It was fairly convenient to be able to put the pot directly into the fridge for overnight storage.

Usually I transfer the food to a bowl; You shouldn't store food overnight in regular cast iron.

Then the next day, I didn't have to transfer food from the bowl back into the pot, for reheating in the oven; It went directly from the refrigerator to the oven.

So, that did skip a few steps, since I didn't have to wash the pot or the bowl either.

I still stand by my regular cast iron, but I can see how enameled can be more convenient.


  1. Enameled also goes beautifully to the dinner table, even for a fancy party.

  2. oh, the brisket! Slow cooked in the oven. It was delicious. I'm still eating off it... :)
