This Dutch oven comes pre-seasoned which is great for anyone that wants to take it out right after you buy it and get to cooking. I have a large 16 inch made by Lodge but decided to go with Camp Chef for my smaller one to compare. I have to say I believe these Camp Chef Dutch Ovens are built a little better and also come with a handy lid tool. Having the lid double as a skillet is also brilliant.
This is a great dutch oven, I got the 10 inch size and it's perfect for my husband and me. Great quality, not too heavy, it comes with a lid lifter, which is greatly convenient. Made some awesome breakfast casserole, only took about 15 minutes and it cooked evenly and it was delicious!
Seems to work great for me. Love the dual use of the lid. Came pre-seasoned so I could cook right out of the box. Love the yosemite art on the lid too. Seems like a great quality product. Big enough to feed me and my family of 4.
