Did You Know?

You can determine how many servings your potjie can accommodate by multiplying the outside rings by the size of your pot.

For example, the Best Duty No.3 pot has four rings on the outside and can therefore hold 12 servings.

Difference between Oil cured vs Enamel Pots:

Oil-cured pots are typically made of cast iron and are cured with oil to create a natural rustic appearance that has a non-stick surface and is unglazed, giving them a porous texture.

Enamel pots are made of cast iron and coated with enamel. Enamel is a type of glass, fused to the cast iron at high temperatures. Enamel pots have a smooth and non-porous surface, which makes them easy to clean and prevents food from sticking. They are suitable for a wide range of cooking methods, including searing, sautéing, and simmering.
