Dutch Ovens & Braisers

Sometimes there’s nothing better than spending a leisurely weekend afternoon slow-cooking a hearty one-pot dish on the stove. From robust soups and stews to simmered risotto or your secret sauce recipe, plenty of meals benefit from the even heating and superior conductive properties that Williams-Sonoma induction Dutch ovens and braisers provide. Take a look at what makes these expertly crafted cooking tools so useful for your stovetop cooking arsenal.


Many of our induction braising pans feature five-ply construction, which means they’re fortified with layered metals that provide thorough heat conductivity. The 18/10 stainless-steel interiors ensure cleanup is swift and you can brown and sear meats evenly. Double-bonded aluminum interior layers serve to not only conduct heat, but also to sustain it – you don’t experience any hot or cold spots with this construction. This steady heating is also due in part to the solid stainless-steel core layers that diffuse heat uniformly through the bottoms of the induction Dutch ovens and braisers. These bases and their magnetic exterior coatings also prevent warping, ensuring that these slow-roasting cookware pieces hold a proud place on your induction stove for years to come.


Our Dutch ovens and braisers aren’t just about function – good looks are important considerations too. No matter what type of dish you can dream up, there’s a pan style to match. For a truly shimmering stovetop, consider our Thermo-Clad™ cookware with a gleaming aluminum finish. Looking to inject some color into your cooktop? Go for enameled cast iron in a rainbow of hues – it’s even resistant to chipping and cracking and comes pre-seasoned to keep food from sticking. To ensure your kitchen stays the warmest, most welcoming room in the house, nothing beats the glow of copper.


Aside from color, you have another consideration to make. Selecting induction Dutch ovens and braisers in a range of capacities helps ensure you can handle any recipe, whether you’re cooking for two people or 20. For individual casseroles or servings of soup, half-quart cocottes have ideal proportions. If you need to lock in moisture for a large roast or a family-sized batch of your famous chili, Dutch ovens ranging from 1-quart all the way up to 9-quart volumes offer a variety of choices to fit the bill. If you’re just beginning to build your collection, 2-quart and 4-quart braisers with high sides let you get a start on perfecting those new roast and soup recipes you’ve been eyeing.
