The Petromax Dutch Oven is ideally suited to cooking and baking in the open air or in the oven at home. Cast-iron pots have existed since the 18th century. Even at that time the unique properties of cast iron were well known and appreciated. With the Dutch oven, Petromax takes up this tradition and also adds new features and characteristics.
Cast Iron by Petromax
Thanks to the amazing characteristics of cast iron and the special structure of the surface, heat is efficiently stored and distributed. The pre-treated surface (seasoned finish) makes a first seasoning unnecessary, and the sturdy Dutch oven can be used right away. The oven can be used on an open fire or with charcoal and briquettes. The raised edge of the lid makes it possible to place embers or charcoal on the top of the Dutch oven. The Dutch oven is therefore heated from all sides and becomes suitable for baking bread.
Details & Characteristics
The Dutch oven is provided with ingenious details that make it easy for you to handle and that offer you an amazing cooking experience. The Dutch oven can be safely lifted thanks to a sturdy handle, and a thermometer hole makes it possible for you to check the temperature without having to lift the lid. When you need it, lifting the hot lid is particularly easy thanks to the Petromax Lid Lifter (sold seperately).
Another special feature is that the upturned lid can also be used as a pan. Beside all these ingenious details, the Dutch oven has a traditional Petromax design: The lid is decorated with the elegant dragon logo, which has always stood for excellent quality and top-of-the-range products. Soups, meat dishes, as well as stews, casseroles and even cakes, can be prepared in the Dutch oven.
