The Cookware Company’s GreenPan brand, which debuted its SimmerLite collection at Sur La Table earlier this year, is now rolling out the collection’s new Dutch oven. It is currently also available at Bloomingdale’s and on website Food52.
SimmerLite’s cast aluminum construction is 50% lighter than traditional versions, the company said. The cast aluminum construction also means it responds to heat faster and better, so food cooks quickly and evenly, according to The Cookware Company.
The company also highlighted the new Dutch oven’s lid. Designed to reflect heat, the double-walled design ensures that the dish maintains an even, consistent temperature. The bottom of the lid is also ribbed to create a self-basting effect, said the company.
The GreenPan SimmerLite Dutch Oven was also recently selected as a finalist for the 2019 Housewares Design Awards.
