The Dutchess: $155

The darling of direct-to-consumer kitchenware, Great Jones has succeeded in producing a Dutch oven that's just as cute as it is functional. The enameled cast-iron cookware can move from the stove to the oven, prepped to sear and braise just about anything. And in a light pink (aptly called macaron), the Dutchess is sure to stand out in any kitchen.
