This lid lifter is so great, I won't ever do dutch oven cooking without it again.

The eye hook on the handle end is a nice to touch to make it easily hung.

They could give away dutch ovens if everyone would promise to buy all the accessories. At first I made do with a hooked piece of wire but after dropping ashes in the pot and almost burning myself a few times I got the lid lifter. It's actually quite useful.

You can leave it on the lid and it stays in place. The handle is long enough that the heat doesn't seem to travel up and make it too hot to hold. The "wings" adjacent to the hook brace on the lid so when you pick the lid up it doesn't wobble or tilt (which is when the ashes would drop on your food!).

The hook also works well to grab the scalding hot bail of the Dutch Oven to carry or reposition the whole oven. For even cooking the standard practice is to rotate the oven one way and the lid the other way every once in a while- that way any hot spots from the coals will spread around. This tool lets you safely do both. Also you don't really have to lift the lid to rotate it- which would let heat out.

I made the big mistake of getting a Dutch Oven and not ordering this at the same time. Pliers don't work, gloves don't work, a fireplace poker doesn't work. The lid lifter makes removing the lid to check on your food a simple, stable and ash-free process. Don't make the same mistake I did. When you buy your Dutch Oven, buy the lid lifter.

These one-piece lid lifters are prone to dumping ash in the food. They're better than nothing, but don't grip the lid tighly.

They don't grip the lid firmly like the good lifters (with the three legs and the hook operated by gripping the handle). The good lid lifters retail for about the same price as this lifter. There's no reason to buy this design. They will will put a huge smile on your face the first time you discover you don't have to do any kind of balancing act.

I've been looking on Amazon, but for some odd reason it looks like they don't carry the good lid lifters, which are available at any outdoors store that carries dutch ovens. Please Amazon, offer the three-leg+hook lifters, sometimes called "deluxe" lifters!

This lid lifter can be used to safely pick up the lid of your dutch oven when hot. It has a counter balance tip that holds the lid securely so it does not slip. Also the tip can be used to pick up your dutch oven by the bail handle to move it, or to move other items.

As far as this sort of lid lifter goes this is the best one I've found. The lateral arms angle slightly back, which gives it a little better stability than a straight arm, and the cross bar under the handle is great for getting a better grip when lifting a heavy oven on the hook. It beats a claw hammer or channel lock pliers by a long shot. And if you have a large diameter pot, it stores nicely inside so you won't accidentally leave it behind.

But for pretty much the same price you can get the original, top-notch Mair Dutch Oven Lid Lifter--the neatest thing since the last neat thing since sliced bread--which many suppliers carry, or the knock-off version produced by Camp Chef which works about as well (I like the handle on the Mair better, but your preference may be different). Both give three point stance security that lets you not only lift the lid but grip it and firmly control it at any angle. Unless you are just chronically clumsy, you'll never have the lid slip, unbalance or get ash in your food again. Once you've tried the Mair (or Camp Chef), you won't want to bother with this sort of hook & bar lifter, except maybe to show friends by comparison how much better the Mair is.

This was the right price and is a solid product, for sure. I did, however, expect it to have been made in the USA since it's a Lodge product. Am I just missing something? Are the cast iron products and accessories (Dutch oven and cooking stand) I just bought made in China as well? I thought the foundry was in the US. I will have to look and probably adjust my buying accordingly, since these products got their real start in America, and America got its start with explorers being fed from these products. Still workhorses and so versatile, this stuff is awesome. It' is a shame that the production of things like this has to go out of country to allow the company stockholders to feel better about their investments. Even if they are just getting accessories from China, it makes a huge impact on our economy.

Oh well, it's like shopping at WalMart. The price was right and I didn't explore the facts, but I will from now on. Product rating has nothing to do with the product: it is a five, just that the origin being China bugs me. The paint is probably massively toxic... {{{sigh}}}

Edit: After closer inspection of the Lodge website, I noticed that they offer enameled cast iron cookware that IS indeed from China. Thing is, they don't try to hide it or let you think it's one thing until you get it and see the sticker. That is their prerogative, and as a consumer you have the right to buy it for the price. Just sayin', we need to think about what we are doing sending so much of our money out of America for products that could be made and bought here, by people who desperately need the work. The lid lifter and the lid stand I bought have NO such notation of origin on their website, and I know the lid lifter is from China, and I'm sure the stand is too. A little clarity would be nice.
