Lodge 6 Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
If you are thinking of concocting a savory stew or a yummy braised meat for your family, there is no better way to do it than with a Dutch oven. There are plenty of brands to choose from, but you have to give Lodge a try. Their 6-Quart Dutch Oven boasts of robust craftsmanship that will handle the kind of cooking that’s good to feed an entire family. It marries form and function in a classic cast iron design.
Traditional Dutch ovens are heavy and thick-walled cast iron pots. If the cast iron is bare and not seasoned, food can get stuck at the bottom and sides of the pan. This often necessitates constant stirring, which can be quite tedious. For some folks, this can be a minor hiccup they can live with. But for others, it can be a real deal-breaker.
Lodge addresses such concerns by eliminating the need to season the Dutch oven. This heavy pot now features a porcelain cooking surface made of frit particulate glass. Lodge applies the particulate material onto each Dutch oven before baking them at 1200-1400 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat melts the glass frit and fuses it into the outer surface of the cast iron. It is like putting a nonstick coating on the cooking surface of the Dutch oven.
The porcelain cooking surface further improves the Dutch oven’s heat tolerance. This allows for faster cooking as you get to use the highest possible temperature settings to cook your food. The same surface technology also gives the Lodge exceptional impermeability to water. Stews, soups, and other meals with liquids will be amazing in the Lodge Enamel Cast Iron Dutch Oven.
This Dutch oven can withstand temperatures of up to 500ºF. You can roast, bake, braise, or broil any feast that you have in mind. And since its base is still cast iron, one can rely on it for frying, simmering, and sautéing on an ordinary stovetop.
The Lodge Dutch Oven looks lovely, too. It is available in a variety of colors like Island Spice Red, Caribbean Blue, Poppy Orange, and Emerald Green, among others. This gives the Lodge exceptional versatility. You can cook your complete meal in it and serve it straight on the dining table.
The Lodge Dutch Oven is a versatile cookware that elevates the functionality of conventional cast iron Dutch ovens. It is an elegant piece that’s worthy of your kitchen.
