Emeril Enameled Cast Iron 6 qt Dutch Oven

I was shopping at Bed, Bath and beyond yesterday for some pots for my son and came across what must be a new product in the Emerilware line. Has anyone seen these? They were very attractive blue color, labeled as cadmium and lead free and had the self basting spikes in the lid. The interior was a sand color. They were much more attractive than the enameled dutch ovens by Calphalon.

I have searched high and low for info on this pot and have found nothing!

Also I am interested in info on Emeril Pro-Clad opinions.

I did purchase this dutch oven with some pro-clad for my son and thought it would be good starter equipment.

But......

The Emeril Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven looked sooooo nice I was thinking of purchasing one to compliment my All-Clad Stainless and Staub Wok.

Any thoughts?

  1. Dear Mike: We saw the same Emeril enameled cast iron dutch oven at our Bed Bath and Beyond. It looks great. We were wondering if you had used yours and if you have had any trouble at all? We have heard that some other brands of enameled cast iron dutch ovens have experienced bubbling or peeling of the enamel. We know nothing about this particular brand and wanted to know your observations, if you didn't mind. Thanks.

    1. I purchased this pan a few weeks ago. Best purchase I ever made. Risotto is excellent, soups and stews cook evenly, pot roast will never be the same! Everything tastes better in this pot. Truly a great investment.

      1. Bumping this up!
        I'm in the market for a 5 qt ish dutch oven and also saw this at BBB.

        How has yours held up?
        Does it have hot spots, especially around the edge?

        1. I was in Bed Bath & Beyond today for something else but looked at the cookware. I noticed that the Emerilware, and Calphalon enameled cast iron were all badly chipped along the rims of the covers. Large 1/2" chips of missing enamel. I then looked at the Le Creuset also displayed there under the same circumstances. No chips I could see. I think that says it all!

            Saw this in BBB here. Ditto- The display models were also all badly chipped, in the same manner.

            I have LC that is years old, no chips.

          2. I purchased the Emeril Cast Iron 6 qt. Trinity Pot about three weeks ago from Bed Bath & Beyond and I'm already disappointed. The enamel has already began chipping off in SIX differnt places on the bottom side of the lid. I will be returning the pot and saving my pennies for a Le Creuset.

              I'm sorry to hear that. I'd be really upset. That said, I have LC, and touch wood, everything is fine so far.

              Thanks for that link too.

              1. re: sosinchi

                Thanks for the link! Those reviews look like All-Clad doesn't give a damn about quality control.
                Moreover, I can't find the enameled cast iron pots from BBB on the Emerilware web site as of today: http://www.emerilware.com/collection....
                Very suspicious and sad.
