Wouldn't it look great filled with holiday ornaments to make your kitchen festive? Or put rolled onesies, hats, blankies and diapers into it with a note that says, "Here's for the bun in your Dutch Oven".... Oh god, I'm killing myself with puns. Sad but true. Caribbean Blue (other colors and pot styles available) Just add a Dutch Oven Recipe book and a packet or two of gourmet Soup mix, tie pretty ribbons to the lid with a cool mixing spoon and you have a fantastic wedding/engagement/grandma/Christmas/New Home/ hostess gift! from Amazon: Product Description This 6 Qt enamel Dutch oven is great for cooking, marinating, refrigeration and freezing. The color porcelain enamel on cast iron can be used on gas, electric, ceramic and induction cooktops, as well as in the oven. Not recommended for use on outdoor grills or over open outdoor flames. Not for use in microwaves. Lodge Color Porcelain Enamel on Cast Iron cookware is cast from molten iron in individual sand molds. The porcelain surface eliminates the need to season cast iron. The cast iron vessel has superior heat distribution and retention, evenly heating bottom sidewalls and even the lid. Tightly fitting lid seals in moisture. The excellent heat retention reduces the amount of energy needed for cooking. Two layers of very hard, glossy porcelain enamel are chip resistant and easy to clean. Lid knob is oven safe to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The black rim on the pot is matte porcelain, not exposed cast iron. Hygienic porcelain enamel is non-reactive with food. Although dishwasher safe, hand washing with warm soapy water is recommended to preserve the cookware's original appearance. 10 3/4" diameter, 4 1/2" deep. Caribbean Blue
I am on a cast iron cooking kick and I love this beautiful dutch oven made by Lodge Cast Iron. This enameled cast iron dutch oven is easy to clean and sturdy, heats evenly and is pretty enough to serve in. It's much less expensive than the higher name brands and every bit as beautiful and useful!
I've been using this exclusively for baking bread, and to be honest, I'm baking bread every day with it now. It's wonderful and it looks great and it cleans easily. The handle cracked the first time I used it, but I knowingly put it in an oven that was too hot. The instructions explicitly say what the rated temperatures are. I love the classic look too--I wish I didn't have to store it in the oven.
