The Dutch oven is the workhorse of the home kitchen, but it took a pandemic for many Americans to actually realize this. And it’s not just the rise in sourdough baking (pun intended), new amateur chefs across the country are discovering the unlimited uses for the cast-iron pots.

Of course, Dutch ovens are notoriously expensive. Even though both Le Creuset and Staub are throwing rare sales, their cocottes may still be out of your price range. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, the startup Milo offers direct-to-consumer Dutch ovens for under $100, and right now they’re an extra 20 percent off with code SAVE20.

You might be wondering, how does it compare to the classic heirloom-quality French brands? Since Milo came on the scene a few years ago, their option has racked up positive reviews from all manner of experts. Here’s what they had to say: 

  • “Our favorite new brand” for 2020 CNET
  • “I was pleasantly surprised by how closely it resembled the look and feel of my white Le Creuset Dutch oven without trying to be a döppelganger.” The Strategist
  • “Consistency is the word I come back to when describing this tool — everything I tasted just seemed right.” Business Insider
  • “It felt sturdy; cooked evenly; cleaned up easily; and didn’t stain, scratch, or chip (although I was careful to use wood utensils). It performed as well as my Le Creuset and Staub, with minor differences in browning and evaporation that, in the end, didn’t affect the deliciousness of my meals.”Kitchn
