Rohais Belrose. Dutch Oven. December 27th , 2016.
While a good Dutch oven is likely to last a lifetime, a smart shopper will consider the name of the cookware manufacturer along with the quality of its materials. Not everybody shops online, but many people visit online cookware stores to read the reviews and compare prices, which also gives you all the information you need for a new Dutch oven. With credible evidence of an online store`s physical address and telephone contact details, and a good common sense, you can avoid problems with e-commerce.
Dutch ovens come in different styles, metals, sizes, qualities and brands. Before deciding to buy, make a good listing in mind of what to look for when getting a new oven cooker. Buying without planning makes it easy to buy the wrong one, and using a cooker that you don`t enjoy can influence your cooking. It is only essential to understand the features and costs of different Dutch ovens.
So let`s start with the basics. First off, you will need to purchase a true campfire cast iron Dutch oven. A "true" campfire Dutch oven is made of cast iron, big and heavy with sloping sides and three legs to stand on. The lid seals the pot tightly has a rim around it to hold coals and earth. The lid is also an excellent skillet when flipped over to cook your eggs and bacon in the morning. There are "modern" Dutch ovens that are made of Aluminum, though these are definitely NOT desired for camp cooking. They easily overheat and tend to warp, and when you are cooking an all day meal to come back to, the last thing you want is a pot full of coals and dirt.
Larger and smaller ovens will come in handy in more specialized situations. For example, I use my 14" ovens to cook turkeys and larger specialty meats. My 8" Dutch oven I`ll use for sides of rice or sauces. There are two basic materials used to make Dutch ovens: Cast iron, and aluminum. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Even though all of my Dutch ovens are cast iron, I`ve seen chefs that swear by each one.
Dutch ovens have a lid and it`s meant to be there not only to prevent the steam from escaping. The trick is to keep the temperature from top to bottom regulated and the best way to achieve this is to stack dutch ovens of the same size. Modern dutch ovens are usually made of aluminum or ceramics so you had better keep your hands covered at all times when cooking.
