Enameled Cast Iron 4 Quart Dutch Oven - Red
Enameled Cast Iron
Enameled cookware is created by bonding a smooth porcelain glaze to solid cast iron. This results in all the benefits of cast iron, like superior heat retention and even heat distribution, without the downsides! Enameled cast iron doesn’t require seasoning, and it’s resistant to acidic and alkaline foods. Bright exterior colors and a clean off-white interior add vibrant life to your kitchen!
Nonstick Casserole Pan
Enameled cast iron has a glossy, nonstick surface perfect for stir-frying, sautéing, braising, stewing, baking and more! Using a lower heat setting will prevent food from sticking. Metal utensils can scratch the porcelain finish, so use wooden, silicone or nylon utensils.
Large, ergonomic handles make it easy to move or lift your pan. Always use oven mitts or pot holders when handling the pan; the handles will be HOT!
Use the lid to marinate and store food as well as for braising, baking, simmering and cooking! The self-basting lid features condensation ridges to keep your food moist.
Enameled cast iron can be used on nearly all cooking surfaces and stovetops. It can even be used in the oven, up to 500 degrees F! Do not use on the grill or in the microwave. Cast iron should be heated and cooled gradually, so allow your pan to pre-heat for a few minutes before adding your food. Do not heat empty Dutch oven when covered.
Easy Use & Care
Enameled cast iron is dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing to maintain the glossy finish. Wash by hand with warm water and mild detergent, using a nylon pad or scraper if necessary.
Avoid placing hot cast iron into cold water. Metal scouring pads or utensils will scratch or chip the porcelain finish. Don’t use citrus-based detergents. Lift the pan when moving it. Use oven mitts or handle grips while the pan is hot to protect hands.
