The Classic Cast Iron Dutch Oven by Lehman’s

I started using cast iron skillets ome time ago.  I love them.  You do have to care for them a little differnetly than an ordinary pan or skillet but once you adjust your routine, you get use to it and the truth is, some things just simple tast e better coming out of a cast iron skillet!  Gravy is so much better in a cast iron skillet.

When Lehman’s offered a cast iron Dutch Oven for our Around th House event with the Noise Girls I became so excited!  I have always wanted a dutch oven and haven’t yet broken down to purchase one.  I was even moreexcited because this is actually an outdoors Lodge Logic Dutch Oven!  That’s right, it can be used directly on top of a fire!  The lid is flat so you can place coals on top of the lid for even heat all around!

Features of Lehman’s Cast Iron Dutch Oven

  • To use, set kettle in coals on built-in legs
  • Next, shovel more coals into flanged lid to surround food with heat
  • Lid included
  • Lid may be inverted and used as a griddle
  • Pre-seasoned and ready to use

Benefits of Cast Iron

  • If well seasoned properly, cast iron is nearly as nonstick as any manufactured nonstick surface and far more so than stainless, aluminum or even copper pans.
  • Cast iron is very inexpensive compared with other high-quality pots and pans.
  • They can last for ages.
  • It is an even distributor of heat, and you can move it from stove top to oven without a thought.

Connect with Lehman’s

If you haven’t heard of Lehamn’s you should check out their website.  They actually have a brick and mortar store in Dalton, Ohio and I have seen catalogs around for years.  Lehman’s actually sells many items for homesteaders and anyone that wants good quality items to simplify their lives.  I like to think they offer a step back in time.

Jay Lehman founded the store in 1955 to serve the local Amish and others without electricity. now they have a 32,000 square foot retail space that acts for their headquarters.

Lehman’s ships old-fashioned, non-electric merchandise all over the world through their catalogs and website. They serve a very diverse customer base: missionaries and doctors working in developing countries; homesteaders and environmentalists living in remote areas; people with unreliable electricity living on islands and mountains; second home owners, hunters, fishers and cabin dwellers; the ‘chronically nostalgic,’ and even Hollywood set designers looking for historically accurate period pieces.

I love what Lehman’s has to offer!  You can visit their website and connect with Lehamn’s on Facebook and Twitter!

    This looks like it will last forever! My husband LOVES cast iron and corn bread is awesome when cooked in cast iron!

    I have found that a LOT of things taste better from a preseasoned iron skillet. We LOVE our set of them. They DO take a lot of care, like you said, but it is worth it! I don’t have a pot quite that size and that one would be great to have!

  3. We love cast iron! Everything cooks so much better- I lost my dutch oven in a move years ago, but still use the pans!

  4. I love cast iron cookware for the fact that it evenly cooks whatever your making. I own several skillets, the corn bread baker but have yet to own the cast iron dutch oven. Maybe someday.

  5. I’ve never had anything like this and it sounds amazing! And the fact that it’s so long-lasting, that sure beats the pots and pans from Target that are dead after a year!

  6. i recently stepped into the world of cast iron and love it. a dutch oven is my next cast iron piece on my list

  7. Seeing the dutch oven brought back memories of girl scouts, this would be wonderful to have when we go camping.

  8. it is cast iron so it will last FOREVER, and my husband has been bothering me to get a dutch oven (who knows why?!)

  9. I love cast iron, and the ability to use this right in the campfire is awesome. Just sitting here now thinking of all the great things I can make – maybe a cake!

  10. I’ve never used cast iron but I remember my great grandmother cooking it her cast iron pans and her food was always great. I’d love to try one

  11. I have never used one but I have heard my grandma talk about them! I think it would be really cool to use just to have something different 🙂

  12. i try to cook in cast iron as much as possible. this would be great for my Ethiopian berbere lamb stew.

  13. This Dutch oven would be so oven for many ethnic dishes, Indian and Turkish dishes would be my firsts.

  14. i love the taste of stuff cooked in cast iron but i am always so concerned that i will not be able to lift the pans

  15. We love Lehman’s in this house! And cast iron! This looks like a great addition to a cast iron collection and anything cooked in it would be great! I think my favorite part is how the lid reverts into a griddle! That’s just really cool and would be very useful! Thanks for a great review!

  16. MY GRANDMOTHER AND MY MOM USED TO USE THEM. THEY BROWN THINGS REALLY GOOD TOO! I ONLY HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE HEAVINESS OF THEM. BUT TEFLON AND OTHER PANS HAVE BEEN VERY EXPENSIVE AND DO NOT LAST LONG. PLUS IF YOU GET THAT TEFLON IN YOUR SYSTEM VERY TOXIC. THANKS:)

    I’ve never used a cast iron dutch oven but would love to try it. I have a cast iron wedge pan from the same company and it really makes some beautiful scones.

  18. Tami Valentine

    I’ve never had a cast-iron cookware before. My grandma used to cook with them. They seemed so heavy and awkward, but the food was so good. I’d love to cook in/on a cast iron pot.

    I love Dutch ovens and now that these come pre-seasoned this would make my life so much easier. I have missed using a Dutch oven since leaving my parents house, where we used them for parties, for special occasions and for cooking when we were camping. I use to borrow theirs when I live near by so that I could cook myself special treats. I totally agree there is a lot of different recipes that just taste better when cooked on or in cast iron.

  20. I always seem to come across great recipes for a Dutch oven, but I don’t have one and neither does anybody in my family or any close friends. It would really be fun to get one and learn how to use it, though!

  21. I have a cast iron skillet handed down to me from my Mom. I can still remember the chicken fried steak she would make in it. 🙂 If you find one at a garage sale that has seen better days, you can save a cast iron pan from rust by heating it up on the stove, adding some oil to it and scrub it out with some rock salt and paper towels. Be careful and double up the paper towels so you don’t get burned.

  22. This looks so awesome! I love my one cast iron pan, I would love try a cast iron dutch oven. So many yummy things I could make!

  23. I’ve actually never owned a cast iron but have recently been reading about them. In reading, I’ve learned about “seasoning” and many people have different techniques..hope to get one!

  24. Danielle Papsis

    Whenever I make eggs it’s always in cast iron. Cooking in cast iron provides us with the iron our bodies need. I’m surprised I never really thought of using the cover as a griddle!

  25. Jennifer Mae Hiles

    I have (had) one cast iron pan, I wasn’t aware of the proper care so it is now unusable! But I learned my lesson!

  26. I would love to give this pan a whirl! I’ve never had the opportunity to utilize a cast iron dutch oven (used one or the other, but never both combined!). I have never heard anything but praise for cast iron and would consider myself very lucky to be able to add a pot like this to my cookware!
