Cook over any fire with the simple, graceful iron technology your ancient ancestors employed when you use this magnificent foundry-cast potjie cauldron. The pure iron body consists of a three-legged round potbelly ribbed with raised lines. A handled lid fits perfectly into the wide mouth.
This potjie measures 12 inches in height and the same in width. The belly will hold or efficiently heat 10 quarts of material.Its weight is 30 pounds heavy and stable, but still relatively easy to move with its firm and durable handle, which can also be used to hang it from a tripod or kettle hook. 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, this will also make the pot stronger and more elastic (yes, cast iron, can become brittle), resulting in a more beautiful pot like cast iron form the old days. Potjie Pots are made in many sizes from small herb pots to large cook kettles. Pots include well-fitted lids and heavy duty carrying handles. The round shape allows the heat to flow evenly around the sides and maintain liquids at the lowest point to keep food from burning.
The lid has a deep lip for holding hot coals providing top heat. 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 or LP gas burners. A potjie (pronounced poikey) is a time-tested form of cooking pot that has been used throughout Europe and Africa since at least the 1600s, and possibly as far back as the Iron Age. Their design exemplifies the unsung mechanical genius of ancient crafters: the deep, round bottom ensures a good rolling boil that cooks well and prevents food from sticking, while the three legs provide maximal stability, and the wide-mouthed shape allows versatility in outdoor cooking.Each potjie pot is equipped with a sturdy handle for lifting and a well-fitted lid. Cook in your potjie over an open fire or a gas burner, or pile hot coals on the deep, commodious lid to make an efficient Dutch oven.
