This is the best quality dutch oven brand going. Fit, finish and function are excellent. L.L. Bean only deals in high quality merchandise this meets those standards.

by CampyCanadian Excellent Item for outdoor & indoor cooking!
We have owned the 8 quart since May (Mother's Day# and have used it all summer. This is our first experience with outdoor cooking with a Dutch oven. We have made everything from cobblers, to popcorn over the fire, to full meals. We love it. At home we use charcoal, and camping we use the coals from the fire. On occasion I have used it in my electric oven too. I love the consistency of the heat. I have impressed #showed off) friends, & baked bread over a fire too! Every outdoors person needs one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by desertmouse Most straight forward cooking experience!
I'm realtively new to the US and when I saw this "dutch oven" in the catalogue automatically reminded me of the lovely "poikjes" I had enjoyed while visiting South Africa (same Dutch origins over there!). After I ordered it, it took no time to get the box at home and the seasoned oven inside, ready to use! Do not soak it in water, but just a quick rinse, dry and a light coat of cooking oil to preserve and store it. Following weekend we test it out with a beef stew using briquettes while camping by Lake Erie. I think I put too many briquettes to start with since we wanted to "brown" the meat first at high temperature, but after 3 hours of simmering our hot pot was ready to go and tasted fantastic! Cleaning it was very easy and again I made sure to apply a light coat of cooking oil before storing it away. If not you will get some rusty patches. Amazing purchase and I have already ordered a few accessories to make our life easier at the camp.

we have only owned this Dutch oven for 2 days and already we have made 3 different dishes with it.The preseasoned finish is excellent. The consistent heat is very good. I would definitely reccommend this item to anyone who loves cooking outdoors. Even if you don't cook outdoors just throw it in the oven and the results will change your mind about cookin with cast iron. We are extremely happy with this purchase and will buy more sizes of these Lodge dutch ovens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BackpackerBob Another great Lodge product
I have used this new (to me) Lodge Dutch oven for a couple of cobblers and pies. Like all Lodge Dutch ovens, it worked incredibly well baking the cobblers and pies to a golden crust and look forward to my first dinner. I love the factory per-seasoning.
