Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 8.5-qt. Dutch Oven + Giveaway

When we first got married, I only used my smaller pots. As our family has grown, so have my pots and pans. Not only do I cook for my growing family on a regular basis, but my parents and/or siblings are often thrown in the mix. My favorite type of pot is a Dutch Oven since it can go from stove to oven. Calphalon sent me their Contemporary Nonstick 8.5-qt. Dutch Oven.
  • Get set to cook for a crowd with this extra- large, extra-beautiful Dutch Oven. Ideal for braising meats, simmering soups, or whipping up a big batch of meatballs and sauce, it features a curvy contemporary shape that looks fabulous on the buffet. 
  • Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick combines durability and performance with fast clean-up and easy low-fat cooking. 
  • Featuring a hard-anodized exterior and nonstick interior. 
  • Versatile vessel shapes that accommodates several different cooking techniques.
Features-
  • Cover: Tempered Glass
  • Handle: Cast stainless-steel
  • Dishwasher Safe: No
  • Broiler Safe: No
  • Oven Safe 450° F
  • Freezer Safe: No
  • Cleaning: Handwash
  • Utensils: Nylon, Coated or Wooden
  • Recommended Stove Tops: Gas, Electric Coil, Electric Flattop, Halogen, Glass Ceramic
I can't express enough how much I love this Dutch Oven!  Not only is it fully functional, but it also matches my modern decor perfectly.  I have used it several times, but in these pictures I was making a chicken casserole(I will share the recipe soon).  First, I boiled the pasta in the pot.

After the pasta was ready, I threw in the rest of the ingredients and put it all in the oven - no extra dishes were needed!

This size is perfect.  It isn't too big or awkward to put away or fit it my fridge, but it is big enough to cook any recipe that I've tried.  There are often 9-12 people that I'm cooking for and this pot helps me fit all of the ingredients in one pot and allows me to take my recipes from the stove, to oven, and in the fridge for leftovers.  I already have so much to do without dirtying up more pots, pans, and dishes.

Calphalon has a fantastic selection of cookware, bakeware, electrics, cutlery & tools, and more that would not only help with your holiday cooking, but would make fantastic gifts.  Visit Calphalon to learn more and to view all of their items.

I've always wanted a panini press and Calphalon has a grill with a removable plate, that serves as a grill, griddle, panini press, etc. I love all kinds of kitchen gadgets, so an apple corer, cheese slicer, any of those items are definitely on my list. Email is purpletiger425@gmail.com
