Dutch Oven

Breaking in a cheap dutch oven on the stove top, with some hot Italian sausages and green peppers.
Looks yummy!

I haven't heard the term Dutch Oven before - I would call it a casserole pan, but then I'm English lol. That looks delicious.

@casablanca - There are several similar-but-different types Dutch Ovens. This one is made for camping. It's cast iron, it's got 3 feet on the bottom so you can stand it over hot coals, and it's got a concave lid so you can put more coals on top.

My friend bought it for an upcoming camping trip, and dropped it off at my house. Cast iron needs seasoning, so I did that, and gave it a trial run on the stove top. A good brand name dutch oven can easily run you $80, but this was from a big-box store, and only cost $18, so it figured it was worthwhile putting it through it's paces at home before sending it out on a camping trip. Totally worth $18.

@batfish That is crazy cheap! What a bargain. Hope it cooks up many fantastic meals out there in the fresh air over the fire. Sounds a great design.

You carry a cast iron Dutch oven on a camping trip? Yowza! Do you draw straws to see who gets to lug the thing about? 🙃
