Early Prime Day deal! This top-selling Dutch oven rivals Le Creuset — but it's only $30

It’s easy to understand the cult of the Dutch oven. This cast-iron workhorse was everyone’s kitchen obsession way before the Instant Pot was even invented, and having one in your kitchen arsenal is as important — nay, necessary — as ever. So we're psyched to tell you that, as an early Prime Day treat, Prime members can score this highly rated, heavy-duty Amazon Basics 6-quart Dutch oven for as little as $30 right now. At that rock-bottom price, you can get one for your own cooking and pick up at least one to gift. (Oh, and if you're not already a Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here!)

Nearly 35,000 Amazon shoppers gave this kitchen essential a perfect five-star rating.

The Dutch oven is the original one-pot multitasker for making soups and stews, simmering sauces, braising meat, cooking pasta, baking bread — actually, it’s hard to think of something a Dutch oven can’t do. And when you’re not using this candy-colored gem, it just sits there making your kitchen look prettier. What’s not to love?

Not everyone has hundreds of bucks to burn on a brand-name pot. And even if they did, why would they? According to thousands of shoppers, this unbelievably affordable Amazon Basics model is a game changer.

“This is my first cast iron Dutch oven and [I’m] amazed how wonderful braised meats turn out. I should have bought one years ago,” wrote one carnivorous customer who’s finally discovered the wonders of cast-iron cooking.

But don’t just listen to the newbies. Seasoned pros are hooked on this pot, too. “I have purchased a total of four of these, since 2002,” said this repeat customer, who is recruiting practically everyone they know onto the Dutch oven bandwagon. “Why? Because my dinner guests/family are so impressed with them that I find myself ‘gifting them out.’ The price is on point, the quality is stellar and I've made some great recipes!”

“This Dutch oven is the REAL DEAL!” echoed a giddy gourmand. “It is very well made and I know this will last the rest of my years! I made a chicken tamale pie recipe the first night I got it and it was OUTSTANDING!”

Even the professionals are weighing in. “I'm a good cook and I own a successful restaurant,” said one food slinger who has made the Dutch oven “my new all purpose pan at home.” And they're not mincing words when it comes to high-end competitors: “Other brands should be embarrassed with their pricing. There is NO reason to spend on Staub/Le Creuset.”

Believe it or not, it gets better. The thing about a Dutch oven is that, yes, it lets you churn out restaurant-quality meals potentially every night of the week if you’re creative — but even after you’re done cooking an entire dinner in one pot, cleanup is a breeze, too. It’s all about the nonstick vitreous enamel finish.

Take it from this all-too-relatable reviewer, who declares, “I hate doing dishes and try to do a lot of single-pot cooking, and this is the answer to my prayers! It’s so easy to wipe clean and it’s solid but not too heavy to handle.”

Buy it for the versatility. Buy it for the ease of use and clean-ability. Buy it for the unbeatable price and gift-ability. Or simply buy it for its stunning good looks, like this Amazon shopper, who proudly displays it on their stove “even when not in use, as it seems to warm up my kitchen and make it look like I actually cook often!”

This gorgeous blue will look great in your kitchen for just a couple dollars more!
