The EC6D43 cast-iron Dutch Oven is beautifully double-coated with a striking, flame-colored red enamel exterior and cream-colored interior to present an appearance as appealing as the unit is functional. Dutch ovens like this one retain heat and concentrate it wonderfully, providing an even-heating effect for contents, and literally functioning like an oven. With a heat source from below, and reflective cover on top to bounce heat back down on the food, all kinds of foods can be efficiently prepared and heated through evenly.
It can be used as a traditional Dutch Oven over charcoal if desired, and can also be placed in a conventional oven or on a stove top, with its own heat retention capabilities making it ideal for use in any of these scenarios. Its flat bottom makes it easy to use as a solid pot on your stove top, and its advanced heat retention will help cook foods faster and more fully. It will not be damaged by your stove burners, so anything which you might normally prepare in a pot can also be done with this Dutch Oven.
Other Dutch Ovens are normally just manufactured as cast-iron units, with no other product enhancement, but the EC6D43 Dutch Oven immediately catches one’s attention with its deep red coloring, which gives it more of a kitchen implement look. The double enamel coating is also something missing from conventional Dutch Ovens, and it resists having food stick to the bottom and sides, so that cleaning becomes much easier. The enamel coating also contributes to its durability.
It is dishwasher-safe, so it can be easily cleaned, although hand-washing with soapy water is the preferred method of cleaning after usage. The Dutch Oven has its own handy lifting knob for convenient removal of the top, when it’s time for viewing or serving contents, and it has handles at the sides for easy lifting. The Dutch Oven is totally safe for use in conventional ovens up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and because it can hold a full 6 quarts of food content, it can be used to prepare almost any entrée, including stews, meats, vegetable bakes, and more.
If there is any drawback at all to this fine Dutch Oven, it might be that it looks so classy and so elegant that you might not want to use it for some of the typical tough cooking chores around the kitchen. All things considered, this is an exceptional product for the money, providing terrific heating and cooking service, and it comes with a lifetime warranty that reflects its long-lasting durability. It has wonderful visual appeal in the kitchen, but its real value lies in its versatility and usefulness in preparing dinner entrees of all types with ease.
