Fall is here, which means cold weather and gifting season are right around the corner. Depending on what part of the country you live in, you'll likely spend the next six months or so wrapped in blankets and cooking up cold-weather comfort food just to combat frigid temps. And depending on the kinds of people you're friends with, you probably know a Disney fanatic or two. So if you or someone you know spends your days fantasizing about Disney World and the warm weather that comes along with it, Le Creuset and Disney have teamed up to bring you the perfect gift: the Mickey Dutch Oven.
Part of Le Creuset's Disney collection, the brand-new Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Round Dutch Oven is definitely super-cute. But it's also shock-resistant, stain-resistant, and stick-proof. Translation? You can use the pot again and again without worrying about cracks, chips, and tarnish.
The feature that cooking fanatics will really flip over? The Dutch oven's interior enamel doesn't require seasoning. That means quicker, easier soups and stews all through the cold winter months, weather your pot is in the oven or on top of the stove.
Though the 90th anniversary Dutch oven isn't the first to come out of Le Creuset's Disney collection, it is the first to feature Mickey's famous ears right on the lid itself. The company also sells a 4.5 qt Dutch oven with the iconic mouse ears on the stainless steel handle ($350).
The new fall- and winter-months essential joins other Le Creuset Disney cookware, like the Beauty and the Beast Soup Pot ($280 on Le Creuset) and the Snow White Apple Cocotte set ($200 on Le Creuset).
