The original Petromax Dutch Oven is ideally suited to outdoor cooking and baking over an open fire. It works just as well in the oven at home. Cast iron pots have been in existence since the 18th century and have long been sought for their cooking properties. With the Dutch oven, Petromax continues this tradition and also provides a multitude of enhancements.
Petromax Cast Iron Quality Thanks to the amazing characteristics of cast iron and the special structure of the surface, warmth 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. In the open air, it is used on an open fire or with charcoal and briquettes. The raised edge of the lid makes it possible to place embers or charcoal also on the Dutch oven. The Dutch oven is thus heated from all sides (and is also suitable for baking bread).
Traditional Qualities, Contemporary Design 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, three legs give stability to the Dutch oven, and a thermometer hole makes it possible for you to check the temperature without having to lift the lid. The upturned lid can also be used as a pan.
Beyond these ingenious details, the Dutch oven has a traditional Petromax design. The lid is decorated with the dragon logo, which stands 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.
The Petromax Dutch Oven is available in several sizes. This model (ft4.5) has a 3.5L capacity. It will cook meals for 2-5 people.
