JAMAICAN CARIBBEAN DUTCH POT CASSEROLE OVEN HEAVY DUTY DUTCHIE
The Jamacan Sun Dutch Pot is loved the world over and has been used in cooking for centuries! Affectionately known as a ‘Dutchie’, its legend was elevated to new heights by the 1982 song ' Pass the Dutchie' by British Jamaican reggae band, Musical Youth.
Hand cast from aluminium in a traditional style, our round-bottom Dutch Pots come in 9 different sizes & equipped with heavy-duty lids. The edges of the pot may initially be a little rough and will smooth out over time.
Whether on the stove, over coals or in the oven, the Dutch Pot can be used to cook almost anything – stews, roasts, lasagna, cakes, brisket, bread, curries… the possibilities are endless!
Most commonly associated with Caribbean cooking, the Dutch Pot is an essential item in kitchens the world over and has many different names including Dutch Oven, Pateela (Asia), Cocottes (France), Tetsunabe (Japan), Sač (Eastern Europe), Potjiekos and Phutu (South Africa), Bedourie (Australia), Braadpan and Sudderpan (Netherlands).
After use, Dutch Pots are typically cleaned with boiling water and a brush (no soap). Once dry, they should then be given a thin coating of cooking oil to prevent rusting. Mustard oil provides a high-temperature resistance, but vegetable oil is also commonly used. Dutch Pots should be stored in a clean, dry location with the lid ajar or off to promote air circulation. If stored with the lid on, a paper towel should be placed inside to absorb any moisture.
