I LOVE this Dutch oven! It is one of my go to Dutch ovens when I need a Dutch oven. I also have two Le Creuset Dutch ovens, and while they are nice, too, I prefer the Lodge Dutch oven. In my opinion, the Lodge Dutch oven does just as good a job, if not better than my Le Creuset. And, the red color of this Lodge Dutch oven is beautiful. I look forward to using this Dutch oven for many years to come, just like all of my other Lodge cooking skillets, grills, camp Dutch ovens, mini cake/ biscuit pan, cornbread (corn ear) pans, panini press and Abelskiver pans. :) I love Lodge cast iron!

The best! Tried the French and Italian competitors and they work well but the price, the price. And maybe, because of our extreme bias to Lodge, we find that it seems heats faster and more evenly. The pot handles have a better grip. But the lid has a clearly better knob allowing for easy grip even with the thickest oven mit yet is thin enough to get the tines of a carving fork around. These features are key for easily accessing the pot. Only one ever so slight drawback - colors, but not enough to ever change our appreciation for this product.

I purchased this unquestionably, marvelous cooking vessel and I could not be happier. The 7.8 quart enamel on cast iron Dutch oven is the whole shebang; all one would need to create almost anything in the kitchen. This is great for stews, soups, braising, sauces baking casseroles plus bread, cakes and cobblers. Heat is transferred throughout the pot equally, decreasing the amount of energy needed to prepare the food. This strong, well-made pot works just as well as one similar that my mom had given me from half way around the world. It sure makes me proud to cook with this Lodge as it is American made. I selected the cobalt blue color and it coordinates perfectly with my other pots. The size of the Dutch is very roomy as it prepares a meal for our family of five with a generous sized roast, onions, carrots as well as enough for leftovers. The enamel offers easy clean up after cooking although I do spray with a vegetable oil before cooking. It transitions from the stove or oven to the table attractively and continues to radiate the heat evenly throughout; thus keeping prepared food hot longer.
• performs above my expectations
• easy clean up
• wide, nice size handles
• tightly fitting lid to pot/oven
• heavy-duty quality
• American made
• favorite go-to pot
The only downside to the Lodge Dutch oven could be it may not be for the weak but on the flip-side it could make you stronger as it weighs in empty at over seventeen pounds. You may want to error on caution if you are accustomed to the weight of Lodge pots and assist in someone else’s kitchen equipped with skinny pots (contents may fly out from weight difference, it’s happened); muscles will be developed after a seventeen pound workout of muscle conditioning versus a mere four pounder from average pots.
I am certainly mentioning this Lodge Dutch oven to everyone, those who desire the simplest to taste the finest. It is fancy without the fancy price.

It's perfect. Period. It's finish is beautiful, it heats perfectly evenly. This will cook everything oven or stovetop. Soups in cast iron were dicey and hard to clean, not with this. Cassoulet perfect. Fried chicken perfect. Braised short ribs perfect. Vegetable soup perfect. If you only have one cooking vessel this should be it.
