Product Description

Lodge Logic Dutch Oven with Spiral Loop Handle

Lodge Logic Dutch Oven with Loop Handle
Even, Gentle Heating

The Lodge Traditional Dutch Oven with Wire Bail handle has been popular for over a century, and is perfect for camp and hearth cooking.

The Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven is a multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes. It comes with a tight-fitting lid that helps lock in nutrition and flavor. This pre-seasoned Dutch Oven works like a charm right out of the box. Made of cast iron, this Dutch Oven evenly distributes heat from the bottom through the sidewalls. Also, it retains heat better so your delicious meal remains warm for a long time. 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. It features loop handles for convenient handling and the oven is easy to clean and maintain.

A simple Cast-Iron Dutch Oven, like the one 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.

Many of the pieces of cast iron cookware made in the Lodge Foundry over a century ago remain in use today.

Detailed Highlights:

Multi-Functional Cookware

The right tool for searing, sauteing, simmering, braising, baking, roasting, and frying.

Made of Cast-Iron

Cast-Iron is a form of cookware developed over a millennia ago remains as popular today as when it was used to prepare meals hundreds of years ago. Cast Iron is one of only two metals compatible with induction stovetops. Unparalleled in heat retention and even heating.

Can Be Used With A Variety of Heat Sources

At home in the oven, on the stove, on the grill or over the campfire. Skillet may be used on various heat sources including gas, electric, induction and ceramic-glass top stoves and ovens. When using on glass stove tops, be careful not to slide the cookware around as it's possible to scratch the surface. Seasoned cast iron can also be used on the grill or outdoor fire and coals for camp cooking. Begin heating cookware on low and slowly bring heat up to medium or medium/high. Always remove cookware from the stovetop after cooking.

Pre-Seasoned

Seasoned for a natural, easy-release finish that improves with use.

Seasoning is a necessary step in using cast iron cookware. Oil is baked into the pores of the iron at the foundry to prevent rusting and to eventually provide a natural, non-stick cooking surface. Unlike synthetically coated cookware, it is possible to restore the cooking surface of cast iron.

Lodge uses a proprietary soy-based vegetable oil to season our cookware. The oil contains no animal fat or peanut oil. The seasoning is functional application and slight inconsistencies may appear in the seasoning finish. The inconsistencies will not affect cooking performance.

Easy to Care for

Hand wash, dry, rub with cooking oil. It is very important to replenish the seasoning of your cast iron cookware by applying a thin layer of oil after each cleaning. Seasoning is an on-going process. The more you use cast iron, the seasoning is improved.

Using Your Lodge Cast Iron

Rinse with hot water (do not use soap), and dry thoroughly.

Before cooking, apply vegetable oil to the cooking surface of your pan and pre-heat the pan slowly (always start on low heat, increasing the temperature slowly).

Once the utensil is properly pre-heated, you are ready to cook.

TIP: Avoid cooking very cold food in the pan, as this can promote sticking.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Handles will become very hot in the oven, and on the stovetop. Always use an oven mitt to prevent burns when removing pans from oven or stovetop.

Care and Cleaning of your Lodge Cast Iron

After cooking, clean utensil with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. (Avoid putting a hot utensil into cold water. Thermal shock can occur causing the metal to warp or crack).

If you are having trouble removing stuck-on food, boil some water in your pan for a few minutes to loosen residue, making it easier to remove.

Towel dry immediately and apply a light coating of oil to the utensil while it is still warm.

TIP: Do not let your cast iron air dry, as this can promote rust.

Store in a cool, dry place. If you have a cover, or lid, for your utensil, place a folded paper towel in between lid and utensil allowing air to circulate. This prevents moisture from collecting inside the utensil, which can cause rust.

TIP: The oven is a great place to store your cast iron; just remember to remove it before turning on the oven.

NEVER wash in dishwasher.

If for some reason your utensil develops a metallic smell or taste, or perhaps rust spots (maybe a well-meaning relative washed your utensil in the dishwasher or with soap thinking they were being helpful), never fear. Simply scour off the rust using a very fine grade of sandpaper or steel wool and refer to our section on re-seasoning.

Re-Seasoning your Lodge Cast Iron

While maintaining the seasoning should keep your Cast Iron in good condition, at some point you may need to repeat the seasoning process. If food sticks to the surface, or you notice a dull, gray color, repeat the seasoning process:

Wash the cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (It is okay to use soap this time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware).

Rinse and dry completely. Apply a thin, even coating of MELTED solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out).

Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping.

Set oven temperature to 350 � 400 degrees F.

Place cookware upside down on the top rack of the oven.

Bake the cookware for at least one hour. After the hour, turn the oven off and let the cookware cool in the oven.

Store the cookware uncovered, in a dry place when cooled.

Why should I choose Lodge cookware over other brands?

For over 112 years, Lodge has provided quality cast iron cookware and accessories, with a broad and innovative assortment. Our continued commitment to quality enables Lodge to offer a superior product line.

How is the diameter measurement of Lodge Cookware determined?

We measure from outside rim to outside rim across the top of the cookware, not the bottom.

What type utensils are recommended to be used with Lodge products?

We recommend using wood or silicone utensils to avoid scratching.

Why should soap or detergent not be used to clean cast iron cookware?

Soap and detergent are used to break down and remove oils. Since the seasoning of your cast iron consists of oil, cleaning with soap will strip or remove the seasoning from cookware.

Are there any types of food that are not recommended to be cooked in cast iron cookware?

Foods which are very acidic (i.e. beans, tomatoes, citrus juices, etc.) should not be cooked in a cast iron utensil until the cookware is highly seasoned. The high acidity of these foods will strip the seasoning and result in discoloration and metallic tasting food. Wait until cast iron is better seasoned to cook these types of foods.

Lodge is a Green Foundry:

Lodge is a zero hazardous waste stream foundry. Lodge designed a vegetable oil recycler for the seasoning process to reduce waste and unusable oil is recycled and used as biodiesel generator. Lodge uses recycled and biodegradable packing materials. Reuse of foundry sand used in the casting process is recycled and unusable sand, working to purify the water of the local streams and planting trees to improve air quality and beautification.

Lodge History:

Lodge is the oldest family-owned cookware foundry in America. Since 1896, the Lodge family has been casting premium iron cookware at their Tennessee foundry. Starting with raw materials and finishing with their seasoning process, they continue to improve on the highest quality standards that go into every piece we make. As the sole American manufacturer of cast iron cookware, they are proud to carry on the legacy started by founder Joseph Lodge. Lodge doesn't just make cast iron; they make heirlooms that bring people together for generations.

Great Pot. Works great in many different applications. Can use it to cook in the oven, smoker, stove top, fireplace or over open flame.
Built to last. I give a light coat of Veg Oil after every use. Do not cover pot while not in use. Keep pot and cover vented. Moisture will stay inside a covered pot and start to rust the metal.

I was pleased with the size of this Dutch oven. It is a very versatile tool indeed - perfect for frying, roasting, and stovetop cooking in large quantities. I cannot imagine my chili in any other receptacle. At 22 lbs with free shipping, the Amazon buy is a steal. As soon as I unwrapped it I cooked up a mess of collard greens. For as big as it is, the weight is manageable. My only qualm is that I wish it were slightly narrower and deeper rather than wider and shallower. The width makes for a lot of necessary oil when deep frying. On the plus side, the wide surface area makes for easy and even simmering and stirring.

It came pre-seasoned, but I keep it well-oiled with a thin coat of vegetable oil or bacon grease after every use. Every once in a while it is good to rub it down with bacon fat and put it in the oven at 250 for two hours just to keep the seasoning layer strong.

This is a real heavy-duty dutch oven! Used it to cook 2 roasts with many, many vegtables and it cooked them to perfection. This is a 9 quart dutch oven, not an 8 quart. I really got my moneies worth on this!

Okay, I really love the size of this dutch oven and it does a fantastic job, as all Lodge products manage to accomplish! I own many (12-15 Lodge products). I bought it to replace a 20 year old Le Creuset 9 qt. that had worn out! Yes, these $350 Le Creuset pans do wear out! What happens, according to a few dealers I've spoken with is if you use them a lot (imagine a person actually using these expensive pretty Le Creuset pots), which I did, then the porcelain starts to pit and then it starts to stain and only gets worse over time. I tried a variety of methods including bleach (recommended) to remove some of the stains. The bleach worked the best but when you looked at the surface closely you can see the deterioration of the porcelain in the bottom. I decided I was not going to continue to use it often except maybe bake large loaves of bread, or maybe never again, and replace it with a reliable Lodge cast iron pan of the same size and save myself almost $270 dollars!

This Lodge 9 qt. Dutch Oven is SUPER HEAVY so moving it around requires strength and when hot some really good pot holders. I'm not a big fan of the wire bail handle because it is actually more of an annoyance than a help. When this pot is filled then it becomes even HEAVIER, very HOT and trying to lift it out of a hot oven can be difficult especially when using the wire bail. The two side handles (?) that the wire bail attaches to are almost insignificant but workable so unless you need a 9 quart dutch oven go for the 7 quart with the side handles - much more easy to muscle around.

Many are the fabulous one pot meals I have cooked in this dutch oven. Built to last many lifetimes. Lodge sure does em up right. The only qualms I have would be the handle design and the width. I agree with another poster that it would be nice to have one narrower and deeper rather than wider and more shallow. And it would be nice if Lodge offered a 9 qt. model without the top wire handle, but with the wide side iron handles like they offer on their pro-logic series 4 qt. and 7qt. models. But if you want to get down to some serious good grub, these are the utensils to have.

Nice and heavy since it's made out of cast iron. I fell in love with mine as soon as I opened it up! I know this will be around long after I'm not, its so solid. I'm looking into getting more of their cast iron cookware now because this one is so great and cooks so evenly. Definitely 5 stars if your not looking for something frilly and fancy but instead you want to get down to business and really cook! I just love mine!

I love this! I bought it to make chicken stock. I had the 6qt. enameled dutch oven but, I could only make stock with one chicken at a time. Sometimes, I'd end up making stock for two days just to get the chicken & stock that I wanted. Now, two days work is reduced to one. It is just perfect. Last night, I roasted two chickens in it and they turned out great. Even the kids thought that the chicken tasted better than when I was making the roasters in either Pyrex or my big roasting pan. It is heavy but, it is well worth it for the amount of time it saves and the great taste of our food. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

I love this dutch oven. It's great for my larger recipes like a double recipe of Ropa Vieja or a large roast. It cooks the meat to perfection. It makes for a cool presentation at the table as well. The handle made it quite easy to carry (full of lots of delicious food)to the dining room table. I also have the Lodge color enameled cast iron 6 quart dutch oven. I'm sure I'll be enjoying them both for many years to come!
