Product Description

This 3 Qt enamel Dutch oven is great for cooking, marinating, refrigeration and freezing. The color porcelain enamel on cast iron can be used on gas, electric, ceramic and induction cooktops, as well as in the oven. Not recommended for use on outdoor grills or over open outdoor flames. Not for use in microwaves. Lodge Color Porcelain Enamel on Cast Iron cookware is cast from molten iron in individual sand molds. The porcelain surface eliminates the need to season cast iron. The cast iron vessel has superior heat distribution and retention, evenly heating bottom sidewalls and even the lid. Tightly fitting lid seals in moisture. The excellent heat retention reduces the amount of energy needed for cooking. Two layers of very hard, glossy porcelain enamel are chip resistant and easy to clean. Lid knob is oven safe to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The black rim on the pot is matte porcelain, not exposed cast iron. Hygienic porcelain enamel is non-reactive with food. Although dishwasher safe, hand washing with warm soapy water is recommended to preserve the cookware's original appearance. 9 3/4" diameter, 3" deep. Cafe'

Have had a Le Creuset enamel cast iron pot for a few years. Very nice, but I never added more pieces because of the exorbitant expense. Then I discovered Lodge of Tennessee. 120-year old company. Got the 6-quart and 3-quart Lodge "Color" series of enamel cast iron Dutch Ovens -- what a fantastic treat! I adore these Dutch Ovens. Other than color and subtle styling differences I cannot tell the Lodge pieces from the Le Creuset. They are lovely, highly functional and surprisingly easy to clean -- even after cooking and storing chili in the 6-quart for days and potato salad in the 3-quart. Five stars is not enough to convey the tremendous value of these Lodge Dutch Ovens, and that's at full price. I've now been giving them away for birthday presents.

Exactly the size and shape I wanted. The dutch oven is very sturdy and well enameled. I got the cafe color and the color is nice and vibrant. I especially like the white enameled interior of the pot and lid - that makes it easier to see what you are cooking. It was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition and exactly on time.

This is my first enameled cast iron piece and I love it! The color is beautiful. The pot is nice and heavy and just the right size for a family of 3. Made stew last night, perfect! Clean up was a breeze and as usual Amazon has the lowest price around. Great buy for the money!!!

Bought this for my fiancee, who has been mentioning she wanted a dutch oven. This arrived quickly, packed well, exactly as advertised. It is fully enameled, including the black rim (the instructions say this is not exposed iron). I chose the cafe color, because it was the best match for my cherry kitchen cabinets. Turns out, the color matches pretty well. The oven is very heavy, appears to retain heat for a long time, and was easy to clean. My only knock is that the knob on the lid is attached by a simple screw, and the instructions warn this may need to be tightened over time. Small thing, but worth mentioning. We're very happy with the purchase, and do not feel it necessary to buy a Le Creuset.

This is not my first dutch oven but it is my first enameled one and I have to say I am in love with the little guy. I am a single guy so the 6qt is just way too big. So I opted for the 3qt and it is just the perfect size and shape for my needs. I use a small convection oven (DeLonghi .9 Cu. Ft. Convection Oven) in an apartment and it fits in it easily with room to spare.

My only complaint is the same as most others, the lid knob. I am at a loss as to why Lodge would put a plastic knob on a cast iron dutch oven. That said I have not had any problems with it but it does concern me. If it becomes a problem I will simply replace it with a metal knob from the hardware store.

I just love this dutch oven. It is heavy and just the perfect size for the two of us. Cooks beautifully and can serve in it as it holds the heat for a long time. I plan on getting a larger one soon for bigger jobs.

I've used this product a couple times, and it is exactly what I expected. Look/Listen...this isn't Le Crueset... the color, craftsmanship, build, etc, is not as high quality. However, it also doesn't cost as much (about 1/4) as Le Crueset either.

Pros
- It cooks like an enameled cast iron pot should.
- Price

Cons
- Enamel stained after 1st use (tomato sauce). I'm talking about the white cooking surface
- The bottom is not 100% flat. I have a glass top range and either the enamel is really slippery or the bottom is not 100% flat. It is flat enough, and I would have no problems on a gas or coil heating element.
- The color is meh. Granted, I just bought the cheapest color available, and it is cheapest for a reason. It is meh. It's not just the "cafe" color, per se, the enamel just isn't as brilliant as my Le Cruesets or even my brown Mario Batali.

All that being said, for $35, this is a great product. And, if after a couple years it falls apart or it gets dropped or something, it was only $35. As long as I take good care when cleaning and storing, I don't anticipate having any problems.

I found this Dutch oven to be well made and attractive. Food does not stick and it cleans beautifully. My only disappointment is that the Cafe color is actually more brown than Cafe. Other than that I would recommend buying it. Also, I felt that the price was reasonable.
