An Island Spice Red Porcelain Enamel on Cast Iron 6 Qt. Dutch Oven! I’ve ALWAYS wanted one of these amazing pots, but couldn’t really justify the cost of the most popular brands.
Eventually, through quite a bit of research, I found this affordable version with great reviews and then to my surprise, I received it as a gift for Mother’s Day. What a way to make the day special.
What is porcelain enamel on cast iron? “It is actually glass that becomes bonded to the cast iron at a high temperature. While being baked at temperatures between 1200 degrees F to 1400 degrees F, the glass melts and fuses to the cast iron forming a bond.”
The heavy cast iron pot cooks on the stovetop or in the oven (oven-safe to 500-degree F) and is designed to superbly retain heat.
It can be used for cooking soups and stews, braising meats, poaching chickens, or baking bread to name a few. A Dutch Oven is superior for anything you want to slow cook.
Some people say these beautiful Dutch Ovens can become family heirlooms that are passed on from generation to generation. With this gorgeous red color and its unbelievable sturdiness, it could be cherished and used forever. Fortunately, my son loves to cook and hopefully, he’ll like to have it when I’m finished enjoying it one day.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MY FELLOW MOMS OUT THERE!
