They have been reproduced directly from the original 150 year old romany gypsy cooking pot made by Judge and are finished with every original detail including the brass name plates. The entire pot, including the lid, is made from solid cast iron and the handles are made by our blacksmith from wrought iron.
The pot is professionally finished but kept in the original "Rustic" style to maintain it's authenticity. They are Pre-seasoned and can be used to cook in, but as with all cast iron cook ware they do require a level of general maintenance to continue the seasoning process. DIRECTIONS OF USE: To continue to get the best out of your cooking pot, after use wash with warm water, do not use washing up liquid as it will remove the oil layer. Dry very well and then rub the entire surface with vegetable cooking oil. When the pot is new it is also preferable to then heat the pot in an oven or over an open fire for about 30 mins, to get the cooking oil to "season" the surface of the pot.
As the pot heats up the pores in the iron's surface open up and adsorb the cooking oil. When it cools the oil becomes trapped building up a layer of seasoning and protecting the pot from rusting.Over time and with good care the seasoning will build up to be a superb natural non-stick protective layer for your pot.
