You can do a million things with a dutch oven , soups, stews ,bread ,pie , etc. The best brand is Lodge ,made in America . All others are made in China I think ,and not as good.

Ya can't beat Lodge. They say pre-seasoned but the first thing I do is season it again myself just to make sure.

Check it out:

The China stuff I see on the market now is not finished inside. If you look it is rough. The good stuff is smooth on the inside. It is easier to clean and eggs and the like flip easier.

you'll be glad you bought one. I love mine, use it all the time. I made a fire pit in the back yard so that when I don't have a chance to be in the woods, I can still enjoy the fire and dutch oven cooking....but that's just me...any day in the woods is a good day!

Get one with a flat lid not a dome lid. with a flat lid you can put coals on top for better heating as well as stack them 2 high if space is limited.

Line it with foil for easy clean up.

can make cakes just the same as the receipt on the box.

Most anything you can make just as you would in a roaster or oven at home.
