Product description

Size Name:5-Quart

The Lodge Cast Iron 5-Quart Dutch Oven is a multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes and all your favorite foods. The Dutch Oven holds a heap of chili, chicken and rice, or fruit cobbler. This model features a flat-bottom and sits on the stovetop burner or coven, with a domed lid that sends moisture back into the pot. Loop handles aid in carrying with oven mitts. Cast-iron retains heat well so you can sear meat at higher temperatures and will keep your delicious meals warm for a long time. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, theses virtually indestructible cookware should last for generations. Made of cast iron, this Dutch oven evenly distributes heat from the bottom through the sidewalls. Sporting a stylish black color, the cast iron Dutch oven looks good in most kitchens and it doubles up as an excellent source of nutritional iron. This pre-seasoned Dutch oven is ready-to-use right out of the box. While the cookware comes pre-seasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use. The Lodge seasoning procedure is a multiple-step process in which the seasoning oil is applied via an electrostatic spray system that coats the cookware, then it’s baked in commercial ovens at very high temperatures. This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron. This seasoning process achieves a seasoned finish that would take many months of home use to achieve. Sometimes during this process, the seasoning oil can collect and create a bubble or slight drip at the bottom of the pan as it’s hanging through the production process. And that in turn can turn brown as it’s processed through the seasoning ovens. This brown spot is not rust but in fact, carbonized seasoning and will darken with use. The factory seasoning process makes Lodge cast iron products ready to use right out of the box, and the product over time “Just keeps getting better”. After cooking, clean with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. Towel dry immediately and apply a light coating of oil to utensil while it is still warm. Cast Iron, like your grandmother used, still ranks as one of the best cooking utensils ever made. It gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware. The American-based company, Lodge, has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. Measures 12.563”L x 10.375”W x 4.563”H (without lid) and 12.563”L x 10.438”W x 6”H (with lid).

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT normal behaviour for cast iron cookware!
Reviewed in the United States on 6 November 2018
I purchased this Dutch oven with very high hopes for it, as I have two cast iron skillets and one cast iron griddle, and I'm in the process of replacing older cookware, which had been coated with nonstick surfacing materials that have long since come off. The skillets were originally my grandfather's, although he'd used them only briefly before they became too cumbersome for him to maneuver, and were not pre-seasoned. I've been using them exclusively for several years and have been able to build up fantastic seasoning on them, and have had no problems with them at all. The griddle was purchased two years ago, was pre-seasoned, and, like the skillets, has given me no issues at all, although I use it much less than the skillets.

So, given my past experiences, I'd anticipated similar results from this Lodge Dutch oven. So, imagine my surprise (and ultimate disappointment) when I received it, washed it prior to use and according to the instructions, prepared my first meal in it...and had the meal, porridge, come out black. Although the porridge was edible, it was decidedly unappetizing to look at, and gave me pause about what may have been in the Dutch oven that could account for this and how that might affect the body of those who ingested it.

I washed the Dutch oven, again according to the instructions, and noticed that upon drying the pot that there was black residue on the towel used to dry the pot. I thought that was odd, used hot soapy water, washed it again, and noticed the same. I've never had this happen before.

I prepared kitchari (a mung bean and rice dish), which also took on a black tinge during preparation, rather than the traditional golden colour. Again it was edible, but off-putting in colour. I washed the pot a number of times, but continued to get the same black on the drying towel. Finally, I made black beans because it would not matter if they turned black. As you can see from the images uploaded, the pot looks quite clean, has no leftover food residue, but continues to blacken the drying towels used.

This is NOT normal behaviour for cast iron cookware!

I've just completed scouring the pot with kosher salt (as one might do to remove stuck on foods) in an effort to rid the pot of whatever it is that is making all foodstuffs cooked in it black, and the salt became black...and the towels still turn black.

I'm at a loss to explain this, but I do know that I will not be purchasing pre-seasoned cast iron cookware from Lodge moving forward. I will purchase cast iron cookware that is not pre-seasoned from my local hardware store, because I know that while it will take some time to build up the level of seasoning I desire, I will not have black-tinged food in the meantime.

I hope that I will be able to return this, and I would urge caution to anyone who considers purchasing this item. It it not my grandparents' and great-grandparents' cast iron cookware!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly What I Wanted for Small Bread Loaves!!
Reviewed in the United States on 25 January 2016
This little gem is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I read a comment that it's smaller than it looks, but I was counting on that! I was looking for exactly this size to bake smaller loaves of Artisan bread. It produces a perfect little loaf for two people or gifts to neighbors. I've already ordered a second one. Cutest little Dutch oven ever.. LOL The bread recipe that fits this DO perfectly is one with a 3 cu. flour measurement. I added the photo with the dollar bill showing so you can get an idea of it's actual size.

Reviewed in the United States on 30 August 2018
Wonder if this is really lodge. It is very light weight. Friend of mine had this same 7qt pot and it was a lot heavier. Also, notice chipping on lid right out of the box. Cast iron shouldn’t chip.
