This baby is a mini dutch oven that needs to be seasoned before use. I used Crisco, I rubbed it all over and baked it at 300 degrees for about an hour. That said it's my go to dutch oven when I don't need to use the 5 quart. If you're cooking for one or two it's great. I comes with a built in handle.

I personally would recommend spending just a bit more and getting a name brand like lodge. Mine smells chemically even though I've washed it several times and it has a big bump of the coating in the center of the bottom of the pan which makes scraping a bit difficult. It's not a bad product but there are better ones out there.

I was brought up cooking on cast iron and I love it. I am lucky enough to have 2 cast iron skillets my moth got from her aunt when she passed away and I got them from my mom when she passed away so you know they are well seasoned. This 2 qt. dutch oven is a wonderful addition to my cast iron collection. It is just the right size to make baked beans, soups, stews or chilli in. I love the old fashion lid with the recessed lip, it will work great over the open fire so you can put coals on top to help keep the heat even. If your on the fence give this dutch oven a chance I think you will love it too. It's just the right size for a family of 3 or 4, or just 1 like me.
