The Dutch range - forged from sturdy cast-iron, is an excellent heat conductor and retains heat for a long time. Ideal for baking bread or simmering larger pieces of meat for hours. The extra-thick enamel finish is scratch-resistant, making this dutch oven extremely easy to clean and maintain. The small nubs under the lid distribute the cooking juices uniformly and ensure that the preparation is sprinkled naturally with this moisture. Suitable for all heat sources, including induction. Perfectly suitable for use in the oven and even on the grill with a 25-year Brabantia guarantee.
