If you’re like us, you love products that offer both utility and visual appeal. While it’s rather simple to find such items for bedrooms and bathrooms, uncovering stylish-yet-useful kitchen gadgets can be something of a beast. But thanks to Great Jones, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore.
For those that haven’t heard of the Insta-famous cookware brand, Great Jones is a direct-to-consumer (meaning, they don’t rely on third-party merchants and just ship straight to you from their warehouse) kitchenware line that launched in 2018. The goal of the brand? To offer cute-yet-affordable alternatives to brands like Staub and Le Creuset; to debut versatile cookware that shoppers would be just excited to whip up a meal with as they would to leave it sitting on their stovetop.
Since 2018, the Great Jones collection has expanded to include cookware, bakeware, accessories, and full sets. Ahead, discover which of the “affordable luxury cookware” items are actually worth the hype (in our opinion, of course).
The best Great Jones products, hands down
A fraction of the price of Le Creuset and Staub Dutch ovens, this ovular beauty is a must-have for any home chef looking for a wallet-friendly option that’s just as gorgeous (if not, in our opinion, even more so). The 6.75-quart Dutch oven (which, BTW, weighs 15 pounds) is made of enameled cast-iron to provide cooks with consistent temperatures and non-stick cooking. As someone who uses hers every week, I can attest to what a standout this beautiful piece of cookware is. (It doesn’t hurt that it’s sold in seven pretty matte colors, either.)
While cooking with The Dutchess is a joy, it does make for quite a few leftovers when cooking for one. With that in mind, the Great Jones Dutch Baby—the brand’s 3.5-quart Dutch oven—is a great option for those cooking for themselves (or for two people). Like The Dutchess, this smaller Dutchie is made with enameled cast iron, though it’s only sold in four colors. (But hello, Taffy! Who doesn’t love a pink Dutch oven?)
When people cook casseroles, it’s often for potlucks or holidays. And, oftentimes, the goal is to make a good impression. While a delicious recipe is the most important aspect of a tasty casserole, the cookware it’s baked in doesn’t hurt—unless, of course, it’s weathered and uninspiring. The 9×13 Great Jones Hot Dish, which is sold in four colors, is anything but that. Designed with retro arched striped trim, this ceramic dish is bound to add a stylish element to any spread. Our senior commerce editor can attest that it was a show-stopper during Thanksgiving, which she hosted. (The green bean casserole was pretty good, too.)
Cast iron is a must-have in any kitchen looking to achieve maximum flavor with little effort. Since most cast iron pans are jet black, Great Jones saw it as an opportunity to debut color-coated exteriors to offer a bit more pizazz while cooking. Additionally, the King Sear comes pre-treated, so you don’t have to worry about that often-dreaded process. Just remember that, as with any cast iron, you shouldn’t use soap when washing this pretty pan.
Whether you love to cook pasta or are hoping to host a shrimp boil, you’ll be glad to have the Great Jones Big Deal Stockpot on hand. The 8-quart fully-clad stainless steel pot is designed to maintain consistent heat for fast boiling and streamlined cook times.
If you love to bake, you’ll love the Great Jones Holy Sheet Sheet Pan, which is sold in three vibrant hues. The half-sized sheet pan features a nonstick ceramic coating that makes baking perfectly crisp-never-burned cookies a cinch. Of course, you can also use it to bake oven-roasted potatoes, slices of garlic bread, and more.
Just like The Hot Dish, the Great Jones Sweetie Pie pie dish takes something delicious and makes it that much better. This ceramic pie dish is designed with the same arched striped border that adds instant flair to any table setting. From a logistical standpoint, it’s oven-, microwave-, freezer-, and dishwasher-safe, so it’s a convenient piece of bakeware, too.
