The Lodge 5-qt. Double Dutch Oven is every cook's dream with a lid that easily converts to a 10.25 inch skillet. The domed cover provides space for roasts and is great for no-knead bread recipes, soups or stews. It conducts heat evenly with no hot spots and maintains heat for efficiency and cooking control. Since 1896, the Lodge family has been casting premium iron cookware at our Tennessee foundry. As the sole American manufacturer of cast iron cookware, we are proud to carry on the legacy started by our great-grandfather Joseph Lodge. We don't just make products; we make heirlooms that bring people together for generations. At home in the backyard, the backwoods, or the ballgame. Brutally tough for decades of cooking.
