For those who want the versatility of a Dutch oven but don’t need large batches every time they cook, Milo’s 3.5-quart Dutch oven from Kana is just the size. Made from a high-quality enameled cast iron, it is large enough to bake loaves of bread and make dinner for two, but small enough that it won’t take up all your cabinet space—or dishwasher space, for that matter, since the company’s products can go right in for easy cleanup. The size of this pot combined with the gentle, even heat that cast iron provides are perfect for poaching delicate foods that are easy to overcook, such as the shrimp in our Jasmine Rice and Herb Salad or the eggs in our Turkish Poached Eggs with Garlicky Yogurt.
Cookware startup Milo is dedicated to selling high-quality Dutch ovens at an affordable price point. For two years, founder Zach Schau traveled around the world visiting foundries to learn the ins and outs of making Dutch ovens. He sampled a multitude of products and built several models before finally settling on Milo’s beautiful minimalistic design, available in either glossy white or matte black, with handles that are easy to grasp even while wearing oven mitts—an underrated and crucial quality.
