Cooking over a fire just gives your food this delicious, smoky quality that you just can’t replicate on the stove. When you’re cooking over a campfire, though, you need something sturdy, something that can withstand a lot of heat. That something has to be made from cast iron. Whether you’re cooking at home or camp, using a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven could help you make some of the most delicious meals you’ve ever tasted.

Lodge has been a leader in the cast iron industry and has been making their heirloom-quality cookware since 1896. This Dutch oven is 10 inches deep and can hold 5 quarts when cooking. Since it’s Lodge, you can rely on this product time and time again and use it in a variety of ways. Make a delicious soup in the bowl or flip the lid upside-down and use it as a griddle to make pancakes. The Dutch oven has legs that allow it to stand on hot coals, and it comes with the Dutch Oven Cooking 101 Cookbook.
With over 25 years of experience, Lodge is the go-to company for cast-iron cookware. The company still operates out of its original foundry in south Pittsburg, Tennessee and creates high-quality kitchenware that you’ll be able to use for decades and pass down for generations. Besides Dutch ovens and skillets, there are a variety of other options that will help produce amazing, delicious, home-cooked meals for you and your family.
The Lodge Dutch oven comes well-reviewed, making it a great option for when you’re camping with your family. Cast iron can get heavy, though, so if you’re heading out on a backcountry camping trip, it might be best to leave this pot behind.
Customers love the quality of the cookware and say that they’ve made some of their best campfire meals using Lodge cast iron products.
