Viking 5-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven, Charcoal Gray

 

 

Description

A practical choice for anyone who loves to cook, the Viking 5-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven provides the natural heat retention required for roasting, braising and searing. Perfect for one-pot meals, this enameled Dutch oven can be transported from the stovetop to tabletop with ease—just be sure to place it on a trivet or protective pad, so your table doesn’t burn.

How does a Dutch oven work?

Dutch ovens are designed to distribute and retain heat evenly, allowing the pan to reach and maintain ideal cooking temperatures with lower energy requirements. Conversely, this cast iron Dutch oven holds cold temperatures equally well for food storage and serving or preparing cold recipes.

The Viking Cast Iron Dutch Oven features a non-reactive glossy enamel interior that’s durable enough to handle metal utensils—but will not react with food, maintaining flavor while cooking. Although enamel is not a non-stick surface, the enamel coating does feature stick-resistant properties to aid in cleanup. The exterior of each piece is coated with matte enamel that resists chips and cracks while keeping maintenance to a minimum.

 

What is a self-basting Dutch oven?

This Dutch oven with made with spikes on the interior of the lid to distribute condensation back into the pot during cooking. This results in less evaporation, keeping meat tender while helping to retain vegetable nutrients that may otherwise evaporate.

Are Dutch ovens safe to use?

This 5-quart Dutch oven is safe for use on the stove, the grill, and in the oven.
