Courteney Cox uses this Dutch oven in her kitchen (and now we want it)

Nope, it's not Le Creuset

Though it's a known fact that Joey doesn't share food, it looks like the star who played Monica in Friends has a lot of food to go around. At least by what we've seen on Instagram.

Courteney Cox recently shared a cooking video with her ingredients bubbling away in a very familiar piece of kitchenware: the Staub cocotte. Having watched this just before lunch, I can assure you that I wanted to make the dish ASAP, but not before getting my hands on this iconic cast iron Dutch oven. Thankfully, unlike Rachel's beef trifle, this recipe was designed by Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman.

If your apartment kitchen is missing a Dutch oven, it's time to get on board. It's good for much more than making lasagna. This useful kitchen gadget is known for being multipurpose, freeing up room in your cooking space. Here are a few matte black vessels — including the one Cox uses — that are worth snapping up.
