I'm a big dutch oven fan. I have 3 of them. 2 of them are dedicated (mostly) to outdoor use and live in my RV/camping gear. The other one is le creuset enameled dutch oven we use in our kitchen.
The outdoor ones are those black cast iron deals with the lid with the rim on it and feet on the botton. This is important when cooking with coals, which is SUPER fun and results in some of the best food ever. There's a great mobile app called "Dutch Oven Calculator" which will help you setup the correct temperature and cooking method using coals. I also use our dutch oven for deep frying outside. No mess/stink inside.
The indoor one we keep in good shape, staying clean and whatnot. This gets used pretty often because we cook quite at bit at home. We use it for nearly everything because we don't have a pot that size in any other form, so we probably use it for things that we don't really need a dutch oven for. Living in a tiny apartment in the city provides limited storage for kitchen stuff so, everything becomes a multi-tasker.
If you're not sure you want to blow $200+ on a enameled dutch oven, you can find legit Le Creusete at TJ MAX (and places like that for half the price) or less. That's how we started. Now we buy the full priced stuff (non blem) because we know we're going to use it.
@Linguitar Eye candy indeed. If I had the space, I'd have enameled cast iron all over the place. I LOVE the Le Creusete stuff and is certainly my go to, but Lodge has some really nice stuff, as well as other brands.
