The original Petromax Dutch Oven is ideally suited to cooking and baking in the open air or in the oven at home. Cast-iron pots have existed since the 18th century. With the Dutch Oven, Petromax takes up this tradition and also provides the Dutch Oven with a multitude of refined details.
Thanks to the amazing characteristics of cast iron and the special structure of the surface, warmth is efficiently stored and distributed. The pre-treated surface (seasoned finish) makes a first seasoning unnecessary, and the sturdy Dutch Oven can be used right away. In the open air, it is used on an open fire or with charcoal and briquettes. The raised edge of the lid makes it possible to place embers or charcoal also on the Dutch Oven. The Dutch Oven is thus heated from all sides and is for example suitable for baking bread.
The Dutch oven can be safely lifted thanks to a sturdy handle, three legs give stability to the Dutch Oven, and a thermometer hole makes it possible for you to check the temperature without having to lift the lid. Another special feature is that the upturned lid can also be used as a pan. Beside all these ingenious details, the Dutch Oven has a traditional Petromax design: The lid is decorated with the elegant dragon logo, which has always stood for excellent quality and top-of-the-range products. Soups, meat dishes, as well as stews, casseroles and even cakes, can be prepared outstandingly in the Dutch Oven.
