And by the way, the little spike things on the underside of the cover... they help to collect condensation and return it into the pot evenly.

The name "Dutch Oven" comes from the old Pennsylvania "Dutch" immigrants which has been misprounounced from the original word, "Deutsch" which means "German." And Dutch Ovens aren't made in the Netherlands. They are a type of American made cast iron pot with a special lid, and often with legs, originally made for use on a bed of coals of a camp fire, but many modern Dutch Ovens are now ceramic glazed cast iron for use on a modern stove or oven.

I bought one of the enameled cast iron dutch ovens yesterday - I've been wanting one for quite a while but since I already had so many sizes of pots and pans, kept putting it off. Yesterday I saw a sale on a nice one (not the terribly expensive one) but I bought it. I haven't decided what to make in it yet - and will be looking for some recipes other than chili, etc.

Yesterday I made a pot (chuck) roast in mine. Also, once in a while, chicken and dumplings.

I don't use it every week, but nothing else can take it's place when needed!

No I got it at a store that they should give me a discount next time I go there.

So far I've purchased over $500 worth of gear there!


And I know the store lay out by now :)
Leave the sauce in! That's what makes it unique! Hope you enjoy your new pot.
