What is a Dutch Oven?

A Dutch oven (also known colloquially as a DO or pot) is a solid, thick-walled pot made of cast iron. The oven can be used in many ways. It can be used for baking, roasting and braising - basically all the preparation methods that a roaster for the cooker and oven can do. The crucial difference: it has direct contact with the heat source, for example, coal.

Furthermore, a Dutch oven has a tight-fitting lid with an outwardly raised rim, so the lid can also be covered with coal or briquettes. This makes it possible to create a circumferential heat effect from the outside. The heat is stored extremely well in this system. The rim also prevents coal and ash from falling into the food. The top and bottom heat that is possible in this way distribute the heat evenly in the cast iron Dutch oven if desired.
