Seasoned, Ready to Use, American Made Lodge Cast Iron Cookware
CAMP DUTCH OVENS & GRILLS
Lodge is the recommended cookware of Dutch oven cooking enthusiasts worldwide. Lodge Manufacturing has perfected the sand casting process of making quality cast Dutch ovens that were imported from Europe 300 years ago and sold to American colonists by English, Dutch, and German traders. George Washington fed his army from Dutch ovens. Paul Revere
is credited for developing the flanged lid. Lewis and Clark carried Dutch ovens as they explored and mapped the West, and Dutch ovens were used by "forty-niners" for baking sourdough bread during the California goldrush.
Dutch ovens by Lodge have a smooth interior, especially important at the lid seal area, and are unifromly casted with tight quality controls. Casted tangs hold the heavy duty wire bails, making turning, and hanging, a breeze. A Lodge Dutch oven has a hinged bail made of heavy gauge wire which is securely attached to molded
tangs on the side of the oven and a loop handle that is attached to the lid allowing it to be easily hooked. The lids of camp style ovens are flanged, keeping the coals from
sliding off of the lid and can be lifted while fully loaded with ash and coals.
Lodge oven legs are an integral part of the oven, built to survive the wear and tear on your camping equipment.
Camp Dutch ovens vary in size from 3 quarts to the largest, a 12 quart, 16 inch diameter oven. The flat lids from camp Dutch ovens are not interchangeable with kitchen Dutch ovens or other cast iron cookware, but can be used, by turning them upside down, as a griddle for frying eggs or bacon over charcoal or campfire embers.
Almost any Dutch oven or crockpot recipe can be adapted to Dutch oven cooking. Water retention is higher in a closed Dutch oven, and working with charcoal is a bit more difficult than setting and controlling your stove heat,
but after a few experiments, and our guide to heat control, you'll be baking, roasting, frying, and stewing outdoors, all the while retaining the wonderful flavors of outdoor cooking in cast iron.
