Our Cast Iron 3-legged bake pots are oil-cured and ready for use. They are heavy-duty, very robust, and can be used in an open fire, over warm coals, on a stovetop and in the oven. The flat, round cast iron potjie, sometimes called a Dutch Oven, is not only ideal for potjie-kos and stews, but also perfect for bread, puddings, and other bakes. This is the most versatile pot of the Potjie family. Oil-cured pots are NOT dishwasher safe and will rust if not cleaned, dried, and stored properly. See our “How To Care” page for more detail.
