The original Petromax Dutch Oven is ideally suited to cooking and baking in the open air or in the kitchen at home. Cast-iron pots exist since the 18th century. Even at that time the unique properties of cast iron were appreciated. With the Dutch Oven, Petromax takes up this tradition and provides the Dutch Oven with a large number of refined details.
Thanks to the amazing characteristics of cast iron and the special structure of the surface, warmth is efficiently stored and distributed. The pre-treated surface (seasoned finish) makes a first seasoning unnecessary, and the sturdy Dutch Oven is ready to use, after rinsing it. In the open air, it is used on an open fire or with charcoal and briquettes. The raised edge of the lid makes it possible to place embers or charcoal also on the Dutch Oven. The Dutch Oven is thus heated from all sides and is for example suitable for baking bread.
