Lodge Dutch Ovens

Yesterday I decided to try out my new Lodge Dutch oven, indoors, in my conventional gas range.
Well, I was really impressed with my no-knead loaf. Not only did it look and taste great, but the Lodge was very easy to use. I was able to drop the dough onto the cover and then cover it with the base, rather than the other was around. To me, it's much easier to bake this way rather than plopping the dough over the high sides of the base. I hope the photos tell the story.

Another great thing about Lodge is that it's an American company that actually manufactures the cast iron that it sells. Yes, right here in the United States. Lodge is a very old company that knows how to survive, but it really needs our support.
