The Dutch oven can be used to prepare delicious strews for about 7 people. That is ideal if you like cooking for friends, have a big family, or want to cook for several times at the same time. This way, you won't have that much work next time. The Dutch oven is made of the durable material cast iron, which ensures even heat build-up and distribution. Clean the pan manually.
