Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Deep Camp Dutch Oven – 12 Inch / 8 Quart Review


The Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Deep Camp Dutch Oven – 12 Inch / 8 Quart is one of my favorite “camp” dutch ovens on the market.

Camp dutch ovens are versatile and functional too.

Also, they are very reasonably priced. (See our comparison chart below). 

Dutch ovens can be used either indoors or outdoors. ***If using indoors it is not recommended on glass-top stoves as it may scratch the glass top surface.*** 


The 8 qt. deep camp dutch oven is actually a portable camp stove. The lid is flanged which allows it to hold hot coals without them sliding off.

An added bonus, the lid can easily be flipped for use as a griddle. The lid can easily and safely be removed with a Lodge Deluxe Lid Lifter.


The Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Deep Camp Dutch Oven – 12 Inch / 8 Quart is made of cast iron. It comes with a heavy-duty bale handle for easy movability.

The sturdy triangular positioned legs allow the oven to sit perfectly over your campfire or stove-top grate.

This dutch oven could literally last you a lifetime. It comes pre-seasoned and ready to use and it has virtually a non-stick surface. It’s built tough and it’s built to last for decades of great cooking.

Easy To Clean:

One of the greatest features of cast iron cookware is, it’s easy to clean.  All you have to do is, hand wash, dry, and coat the cooking surface with your favorite cooking oil. *** Mine is bacon grease.***

Easily Maintained:

A good seasoning makes all the difference in the world in cast iron cookware. Lodge pre-seasons all of their cookware with vegetable oil.

When properly maintained after each use, and the more you use your cast iron, the better the seasoning actually becomes.
