Our Cast Iron bake pots are covered with a protective black enamel coating 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 is also perfect for bread, puddings, and other bakes. This is the most versatile pot of the Potjie family. Our enamel pots are dishwasher safe making them easy to clean. See our “How To Care” page for more detail.
