Why does one need a dutch oven?
Pardon my ignorance, but I have been married 23 years and never had a dutch oven.
Never really knew I was missing out on anything by not having one until I came to this board looking for info on new pots and pans. My mother never had one (and never had a pressure cooker either) and so that is probably why I never thought I was missing out on anything.
Please - educate me. I really am curious. :)
Also what type of reasonably priced - not over $200 - pots should I get for a gas range. Mine are, yep, 23 years old!
