Best Braiser: Martha By Martha Stewart Enameled Cast Iron Collection Enameled Cast Iron 3.5 Quart Braiser With Lid
Depending on your point of view, a braiser is basically a shorter Dutch oven or a taller enameled cast-iron skillet with a lid. Either way, this one is ultra-useful for Thanksgiving cooking and for serving, since it’s so pretty. We chose the Cobblestone color for the braiser because it’s quintessential Martha—and an instant collectible.
Use it for vegetable sides you make on the stovetop, like Brown-Sugar-and-Bacon-Glazed Brussels Sprouts, which braise in chicken stock. Cook the bacon for this side in the braiser first, rather than using another pan.
