ECO-FRIENDLY Perfect for slow-cooking, roasting, baking and more, GreenPan SimmerLite Dutch ovens offer half the weight of traditional cast iron and even better performance—everything cast iron can do, SimmerLite can do better! Health-conscious cooks will appreciate this completely toxin-free collection that boasts revolutionary Diamond Thermolon Pro 100% pure ceramic nonstick that’s reinforced with diamonds to make the coating four times more conductive than copper, giving it incredible searing and browning capabilities. This superior nonstick coating makes it easy to cook delicious meals with little oil—and because it’s completely scratch-resistant, it’s safe for use with metal utensils and in the dishwasher.

The SimmerLite collection is perfect for those who love all the benefits of cast iron cooking but are unable to lift heavy pans. SimmerLite is made of hard-anodized aluminum, which offers better heat retention than cast iron and is three times more heat conductive and heat-responsive on all cooking surfaces, including induction, which results in fast, even cooking. The 100% toxin-free ceramic coating on both the interior and exterior acts as a protective armor that keeps this cookware looking great. Large hard-anodized aluminum side handles provide easy lifting and a safe, secure grip even while wearing oven mitts.

Double-walled hard-anodized aluminum lids with stay-cool cast stainless knobs insulate food, while a heat-reflective stainless steel shield on the base of the lids improves heat efficiency. The bottom of the lid is profiled, which provides a self-basting effect that keeps food moist.

Thanks to Magneto technology, SimmerLite is optimized for all heat sources. The secret is in their brand-new Magneto technology—a special coating of copper-reinforced ferromagnetic particles are applied to the bottom of each pan. Whether you prefer to cook on an induction, electric or gas stovetop, you can expect fast, even heat distribution and impeccable results.

Love its weight!
This dutch oven is so light it makes it so easy to move and empty. It is also easy to clean. It makes my life a lot easier.

Excellent pan for me!
I love this dutch oven! It’s just the right size and being light weight is a real plus for older folks like me! Best non-stick surface ever.

extremely lightweight and non stick
Purchased this as our old Le Creuset dutch oven is too heavy to lift. We've used the Simmerlite dutch oven now several times and it is great for cooking on the stovetop. I also made bread in this two weeks ago. While it is safe in the oven up to 600 degrees the lid is not. The lid is a double wall construction with air space. After 30 minutes I took the lid off for the bread to bake the last 15 minutes uncovered. The lid warps when heated in the oven. It did eventually reshape itself after about an hour, but if I keep using it to bake bread Im afraid it will warp permanently.

Terrific & Light Weight
I have had the 5.5 quart dutch oven for a few months and it is performing beautifully. Light weight, easy clean up, non-stick. It is great for soups, braises and stews but doesn't quite have the capacity to do a large batch of bulky items like lamb shanks so if they made a larger one I would purchase that as well.

It's so light!
Have only used it a couple times but everything I've cooked in it worked great - cleans up easily also. I'm still surprised every time I pick it up - so light!

I searched and searched and voila! the GreenPan was it!
This dutch oven is everything it's advertised to be. I have cooked several things in it since purchasing it in December. It performed as described. Love its weight, design, color, size, depth. Cleans up beautifully as advertised. Everyone should have this staple in their kitchen.

GreenPan Dutch Oven
I love it - in fact I am using it tonight. Several of my cooking pans were getting too heavy for me to handle so this solved that problem. So glad I received the email that advertised GreenPan.

50% Lighter and 100% Toxin Free
I was looking for a lightweight alternative to my Le Creuset cast iron dutch oven and was intrigued by GreenPan SimmerLite’s claims of 50% less weight. This dutch oven truly delivered! Lightweight enough to lift without straining my wrist, retained heat wonderfully and cooked my meal in half the time. Can’t wait to put the self-basting lid to the test when I make my famous Beef Bourguignon. The 100% toxin free coating is a plus and clean-up was a breeze. The color looks great on my burner too. I think I’ll try the grillpan next. Highly recommend.

Browns meat evenly
I made a sausage soup with the GreenPan Dutch Oven and was pleased with how evenly it browned the sausage and sauteed the onions, celery, and bell peppers. The lightness of the dutch oven with a full pot of soup and lid was amazing. Unfortunately, the handles heated up fast on the stove while cooking the vegetables, resulting in unexpected burned fingers. I would have expected the handles to be hot if I put it in the oven but I didn't expect them to be so hot so fast on the stove. Knowing that, I would recommend the dutch oven for oven use primarily. 4 out of 5 stars, because of the limitation of the hot handles.

CARLA A on Mar 23, 2019
After reading the reviews on the site as well as researching GreenPan online I opted to go with this one. I've been wanting a dutch oven for a while but just did not want to pay $300 or higher for one. The sale made this one a more reasonable purchase.
Leslie C on Mar 23, 2019
light weight
James H on Mar 23, 2019
The lightweight feature. It is hard to lift cast iron. I hope it works as well as cast iron.
Elizabeth K on Mar 22, 2019
Wanted a dutch oven with the qualities of cast iron but without the weight. Hopefully this will fit the bill!
REBECCA V on Mar 22, 2019
I have been shopping for a dutch oven since mine has scratches in the coating. When I visited a Sur la Table store, the sales associate recommended this one. I was traveling so I haven't had a chance to order it. Seeing it at a sale price was the deciding factor.
Ann M F on Mar 22, 2019
My Dutch Oven is old and need a new one.

I've had surgery on my right hand and I make a lot of soups and stews -- this lightweight pan will make it SO much easier for me to lift. Also, it's difficult to find lightweight pans that work with induction ranges. Can't wait to use it!!
Sheila M on Mar 22, 2019
My daughter has this Dutch Oven and loves it, so I wanted one also!

I have a couple of green pans and like them very much. They are much lighter than Le Creuset or any cast iron brand and do a great job on induction cooktops, particularly for everyday cooking...

It is light weight.
MGinnj on Dec 2, 2018
I have a regular cast iron pot and I find it really heavy. The older you get the harder it is to pick up things. So I have a selection of Green Pans and I love them. Easy to clean and pick up. Adding this one to my collection.
Christy M on Dec 2, 2018
I wanted a light weight dutch oven and this seemed perfect.
Diane N on Nov 27, 2018
Despite owning both Le Creuset and Staub pans, I tend to use my GreenPans more than anything because they're substantial but not so insanely heavy, the ceramic non-stick coating on GreenPans creates delicious browning that you don't have to scrape loose, and they clean up easily! This is a gift for my mom because I'm slightly evangelical about it.
Caroline H on Nov 26, 2018
have a small greenpan cooking pot and it is great to use.

It is a gift for friends that lost their house in a fire

Anna L on Apr 22, 2019
Can this be used on a glass top stove?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have a glasstop range. This pot is beautiful except for the handles because they can get very hot.
Do they make a simmerlite skillet?
linda s on Mar 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I really like mine and it is a lot lighter than many other brands, which is important to me.
Is the inside of the lid exposed aluminum ?
G. Gregory B on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it's a cast aluminum lid with a stainless steel base.
Will the top go in oven and withstand the same temperature as the pot?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: mine does not, the interior of the lid will warp as there is an air space between the interior and exterior of the lid. It does eventually reshape itself but it seems a little odd. Other than that the dutch oven is excellent
