Put an Enameled Cast-Iron Dutch Oven in Your Survival Kitchen

Several DestinySurvival sponsors sell Dutch ovens, but here’s one I think you’ll be interested in. It’s the Lodge Color Dutch Oven.

It holds six quarts. One of the best features is that it doesn’t require seasoning like other Dutch ovens. It’s coated with two coats of porcelain enamel. And it comes in a pretty red color.

It’s versatile, too. It’s said to be great for cooking, marinating, refrigeration and freezing. It would also be good for baking bread. And it won’t absorb food odors or flavors.

Though this enamel Dutch oven is dishwasher safe, it’s recommended you wash it by hand to preserve the finish. Reviewers say it’s easy to clean. The lid is oven safe to 400 degrees F. The cast-iron helps evenly distribute heat. And that helps reduce the amount of heat necessary for cooking.

However, this enameled cast-iron Dutch oven is not recommended for use on outdoor grills or over open flames. Don’t put it in the microwave either.

Before you conclude this Dutch oven wouldn’t be suitable for your next camping trip, why not try it out as a solar cooker, surrounded by cardboard covered with foil?

As one reviewer points out, though it’s made in China, it has been tested for lead and is safe. You’ll also be glad to know it’s covered by a lifetime warranty against defects.

But one of the nicest features is the price. For about $50 you can get this enameled cast-iron Dutch oven for a fraction of what you would pay otherwise.

With all its great features and reasonable price, add a Lodge Color Dutch Oven to your survival kitchen today.
