Lodge Enamel Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Food allergy moms, you deserve this beauty.  We spend too much time in the kitchen to not have heavy duty tools.  And pretty doesn't hurt, either!  

This is the Lodge Color Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven 3-Quart.  On Amazon right now, in Caribbean Blue, you can get it for just over $40 with free shipping...it's 43% off!

I did a lot of research a couple years back and got rid of all of my metal pots and pans.  I went to enameled cast iron and raw cast iron.  We absolutely love cooking with these, and I don't know how I lived without them before!  Cast iron goes from stove top to oven and are safe for your famil

I own some Le Creuset, the French enameled cast iron, but for large pot sizes I just could not afford Le Creuset.  So for the dutch ovens, I own Lodge in the 3 quart and the 6 quart.  I honestly use my 3 quart the most for a family of 4.

While Lodge raw cast iron is made in Tennessee, they do source out their enameled cast iron to China. And I made calls to Lodge about that to ask for quality control reassurance. They assured me that their China factories are regularly visited and that the products are regularly tested for lead.  I felt assured.

We use our Lodge Color Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Ovens for artisan bread, soups, reheating leftover meat, baked oatmeal, and much more.

I'm not sure how long this good Amazon price will last.  This is about how much I paid, too, and I was tickled!  :)

And keep your enameled cast iron scratch-free with our e-cloth Cleaning Paste!

I looooooove my Lodge dutch oven. I got it as a Christmas gift and simply adore it. Question for you on allergies and cast iron - I would love to use 'raw' iron more for the family to take advantage of it leaching into food. But what does this mean for allergies? You don't wash with soap, you don't scrub it out, etc. I am afraid to use it for anything Calvin will eat since I've made eggs in them all.

I know what you mean. I just don't cook anything dairy on our raw cast iron. I actually bake shredded cheese patties for myself but I do it on an enamel glazed pan that washes up really slick. I feel better doing it that way. Good question.
