Cooking in Africa is done outside, over the fire. Dutch settlers introduced the iron concept to the Africans. Several hundred years and some refinements, the round belly, three-legged "potjie" was perfected. The round design allows for even heating to keep liquids from burning. The tri-pod legs allow for the round shape and keep the pot off the coals. Designed with a deep lid so you can stack coals on top for a true Dutch oven effect. Opposing side handle and thick wire handle are ideal moving or hanging the pot. Perfect for all outdoor cooking, use as your serving dishes, or decorative exotic pot. Cast to a smooth, strong finish, this cast iron has timeless value because of functional design and tasteful refinements. 5 quart weighs 19.4 pounds.
