This size is getting into the larger cooking cauldron size and is used for everything from cooking whole chickens to meat roasts. Potjie Pots are newly manufactured and coated with a baked on vegetable oil to preserve the cast iron.Seasoning these cooking pots in the old fashioned way with a good shortening or vegetable oil will blacken them naturally over time and with use and also will make the pot stronger and more elastic (yes, cast iron can become brittle), resulting in a more beautiful pot like cast iron from the old days. This size will feed up to 58 people! Used world-wide for cajun stews, jambalayas, paellas, sea foods, fish fries, beans, turkeys, roasts and anything you can cook over an outdoor fire. Excellent for cooking over open fires. Potjie Pots come in many sizes from small herb pots to large sugar kettles and pre-seasoned with edible high quality vegetable oil which immediately starts the seasoning process.
All of these pots have well-fitted lids with a lip for holding coals, a heavy duty bail/carrying handle, and are made from pure gray cast iron. Their round shape distributes the heat evenly around the sides and maintains liquids at a low point to keep from burning, which makes them a great choice for slow cooking meals even cornbread and desserts. Cast iron is also a common choice for searing or frying food. These pots have the ability to maintain their heat over an uneven heating surface, such as a campfire.
Quality Cast iron seems to be expensive but anyone who has used it knows the value. How it will last for generations, is very heavy and almost indestructible.
