The Legendary Cast Iron Dutch Oven!

Cast iron cookware has been in use for hundreds of years and played a major role in the kitchens of almost every country and civilization since the Roman Empire.

The History of Cast Iron Dutch Ovens!

A Dutch oven is a cooking pot usually made of cast iron with thick walls and a close-fitting covering. Inherited from our Dutch ancestors, Dutch ovens have been around since the 1600s. Either the Dutch came up with the process of molding these cooking vessels or they sold them to other countries at that time; thus, the name Dutch ovens. In time, they have evolved to become shallower, with a flange placed on the lid to hold the coal out of the food, and legs also placed underneath to elevate them atop coal and fire.Dutch oven

The cast iron Dutch oven has two types. The first type is the best cookware needed for an adventure outdoors- a chuckwagon or cowboy or camping Dutch oven with three legs, a wire handle and a concave lid with a rim for coal. The second type has no legs, unlike the first. This modern Dutch oven is perfect for use on the stovetop or in the oven.

Like other cast iron cookware, the cast iron Dutch oven is to be used seasoned as well in order to maximize the benefits of cast iron. Also like the cast iron pan, this oven has excellent heat retention and distribution, which makes it better for making long and slow-to-cook meals such as roasts, stews and casseroles. Cooking these meals becomes a breeze with cast iron Dutch ovens because with the added flavor and supplement from the iron from the oven, these meals become more delicious and even healthier.

If you ever find yourself with the opportunity to cook over a campfire, Dutch ovens will be the perfect tool for you. You can make biscuits, bread, pizza, cake, or even pie from this culinary wonder. You can even conserve heat and cooking time by stacking as much as five to six Dutch ovens on top of each other.

Taking care of a cast iron Dutch oven is as easy as taking care of a cast iron skillet. One simply has to wash with warm water and detergent without using a sponge so as not to take out the seasoning. Because of its non-stick properties, cleaning these ovens is a cinch.

If you are ready to spend for your vacation, then around fifty dollars for this must-have is a small price to pay for a great trip marked by great food and experience around the campfire. The cooking becomes an adventure in itself with the slow and steady way that the cast iron Dutch oven does its job. And, you will not only be spending for outdoor use, but for home use as well. It’ll be like taking the campfire experience to your kitchen and dinner table. Surely, the taste of an adventure’s worth of food with family and friends is a tradition worth reliving over and over.
