Beautifully designed, this Dutch oven is great for slow cooking foods without scorching. The Dutch oven can also be used to sauté, sear, fry, bake, and stir fry foods. The cast iron Dutch oven is pre-seasoned and ready-to-use, without needing to specially prepare it before use by baking oil into the surface. Cast iron cookware cooks evenly and retains heat and may be used on the stovetop, in the oven, or over a campfire. The Dutch oven features an exclusive self basting lid and easy grip handles.
