Pros of cast iron Dutch oven

Lodge utilises porcelain enamel on cast iron, which is actually glass that becomes bonded to the cast iron at high temperatures. A particulate of glass, called frit, is applied to the cast iron vessel and then baked at temperatures between 640 to 760 degree Celsius. The glass frit melts and fuses to the cast iron, forming a bond. This gives it added pros such as:

  1. Durability: Cast iron is known for its longevity, and the enamel coating adds an extra layer of protection against rust and corrosion.

  2. Non-reactive Surface: The enamel coating prevents acidic foods from reacting with the cast iron, making it suitable for cooking a wide range of dishes, including those with tomatoes or wine-based sauces.

  3. Easy to Clean: Enamelled cast iron is generally easier to clean than traditional cast iron because the enamel creates a smooth, non-stick surface. It usually only requires gentle hand washing with mild detergent.

  4. Versatility: Enamelled cast iron can be used on various heat sources, including gas, electric, induction cooktops and ovens.

  5. Attractive Appearance: The enamel coating comes in various colours, making enamelled cast iron cookware aesthetically-pleasing and suitable for serving dishes directly at the table.

Cons of cast iron Dutch oven

Because of the combined weight of metal and glass, it's inevitable that cast iron pots and pans are heavy.

Apart from that:

  1. Prone to Chipping: While enamel is durable, it can chip if dropped or hit against a hard surface. Chipped enamel can expose the cast iron beneath, leading to rusting if not promptly addressed.

  2. Weight: Like traditional cast iron, enamelled cast iron cookware is heavy, making it challenging to handle, especially for individuals with limited strength or mobility.

  3. Heat Retention: While cast iron is excellent at retaining heat, enamel doesn't conduct heat as efficiently as bare cast iron. If the cookware is not preheated adequately, this can lead to uneven cooking.

  4. Cost: Enamelled cast iron cookware tends to be more expensive than traditional cast iron due to the additional manufacturing process of applying the enamel coating.
