Great P:ot!
by -
Bought the smaller version of this pot on-line after looking at the 6-qt. in a Wal-Mart store. The day it was received I cooked a 3 lb. roast with potatoes, carrots and onions in the same pot, then made gravy from what was left. Pot perfomed wonderfully. Even heating, nice searing ability for the meat, and kept the roast and vegetables at just the right simmer for the time required. Two days later, used the pot to make a gumbo--great results. Within the same week, used the pot three more times. It has become my favorite. Wife used it to make chicken and dumplings the next week, made bean soup in it two days later. It's a great pot. Now considering getting the 6-qt. Pot cooks well, cleans easily and is attractive. Thanks Lodge (and Wal-Mart for a great pot at a reasonable price. We also have some Le Creuset cast iron that is much, much more expensive, but does not perform any better.

Beautiful Pot
by -
 Verified purchaser
I own a Le Creuset, a Sur La Table braiser (styled after Staub), and regular Lodge Logic non-enamled cast iron pans. As far as heat retention and using less gas, I've found all to be equal. So in this respect, there is not much difference that I can tell. I wanted the Le Creuset 3.5 wide round, but at $150 compared to this 3 qt. Lodge at $39, I decided I'd try the Lodge with the hopes of saving money and having this size pot sooner rather than later. I am really glad I ordered this. It's a great size for reheating food on the stove, as well as cooking a smaller sized meal. For a family of 5, or if you like to make more food for left overs, you should also get at least a 6.5 and up dutch oven. I was impressed too with the quality control of the Lodge. I'm extremely picky about my kitchen items and this pot had no finish imperfections, which is beneficial for longevity. However, I will not kid myself in believing this pot will keep its enamel the way my Le Creuset will. I am not rough with enameled pots, but LC enamel is far superior--But at a superior cost! I don't want to wait for years or feel ultra guilty for wanting various sized enameled cast iron. So far, I'm very pleased with my Lodge; it's well made, attractive, and performs as it should.

Nice Dutch oven
by -
My first dutch oven and real happy with this aside from the plastic knob. Replace it for a couple bucks at your local hardware store it's cheap and your good to go. Got this to bake KN bread and it works great. I was worried the 3qt was too small but it's the perfect size for KN bread and i hope it encourage me to cook more at home and eat healthy.

great cast iron oven
by -
This is my first time cooking in a cast iron dutch oven. I loved it! The 3 1/2 qt size held enough for a family of 4. Heat was even for fast cooking. I will be lookin for dutch oven recipes as I plan on using my dutch oven often. Great red color and it cleans up fast. I made chicken tetrazzini in half the time. I would recommend the Lodge Dutch Oven from Walmart, great price too! The Site to Store shipping was free and I had my oven is just a few days. The only thing I worry about is the plastic handle but I can't see it changing the way the oven cooks. I love it!!!

Cooks beautifully and looks it
by -
I didn't have a dutch oven and usually they're too large to use very often, as there's just the 2 of us. I wanted to try a chili relleno deep dish casserole in this and it cooked just right - came out bubbling and set perfectly and just what I hoped for. Anyway, this size is perfect if you want to use it more often than a larger dutch oven, yet we still had tons of leftovers so big enough for most dishes you want to cook for more people. Plus, it's beautiful!

Best quality AND best price.
by -
I have looked for a enameled cast iron pot for about a year. On line, catalogs, etc. The prices for them have been anywhere from $90.00 to $230.00. I just couldn't justify that amount. So put it off. Then saw the Lodge one on line, with Walmart. Lodge has a good reputation and has held up that reputation. I love it!

A must have, Quality cast iron cookware
by -
 Verified purchaser
Only had the 3qt for a few weeks, but we've had the 6qt for about 5 years, it is used average 2 to 3 time's a week to cook vegetables, soups, stews, chili, roasts, it will sear meat like nobody's business, then is so easy to scrape the brown bits to make a beef roast stand up and be proud to be called Dinner. It caramelizes onions so perfectly you'll want to slap, well you know. After all the years of use and abuse we put it thru the enamel is just starting to spiderweb in the bottom. We have just received the new 7.8qt. The quality is A#1 as is with all the Lodge products we have, and we have and use a lot of them.

Great Kitchen Addition
by -
This Dutch Oven is made by "LODGE" -- a company that my mother always considered to be one of the finest makers of cookware. The price on this particular Dutch Oven was the best I could find anywhere -- plus... I liked the ease of ordering and having the product shipped FREE to my local Wal-Mart store. Looking at the style & workmanship, I am delighted with this item -- the only reason I gave it 4 stars on durability is that I just received it about two weeks ago; but my expectation is that it will prove to be very durable as the years go by.

I used it immediately. I cooked up a tastey chicken dish for me and the hubby. started stove top n finished in the oven. cooks great! can't say enough. just very happy with it. wanted one for a long time. this was a great purchase at a reasonable price. I don't bother to put it away. stays on stove top. I use it all the time. can't wait til I get the 6qt. I just ordered!

Beautiful asset to my kitchen.
by -
 Verified purchaser
The Lodge 3-quart Dutch oven is without a doubt one of the best purchases I have made. First, it was priced well below many other brands, so it was a real bargain. Second, it is of a good size for everything from frying chicken to making stir fry or even baking bread, and is not too heavy to handle, even though it is made of cast iron. Third, it is a quality built piece of cookware that will be around for many years. And fourth, it is truly beautiful, and as I said in the summary, a beautiful asset to my kitchen.
