Our Cast Iron bake pots are oil-cured and ready for use. They are heavy-duty, very robust, and can be used in an open fire, over warm coals, on a stovetop, and in the oven. The flat, round cast-iron potjie, sometimes called a Dutch Oven, is not only ideal for not only potjie-kos and stews, but also perfect for bread, puddings, and other bakes. This is the most versatile pot of the Potjie family. Oil cured pots are NOT dishwasher safe and will rust if not cleaned, dried, and stored properly.
