Cook over two gallons of contents in the time-honored manner with this flat-bottomed cauldron. A revision of the potjie shape used for magick and cookery since ancient days, this industrially attractive old-world iron pot has concentric surface rings.
A well-fitting lid rests within the raised lip, and an arched handle makes it easier to move the stable piece.
This cauldron is 7 inches high and 12 inches wide, 9 quarts can be cooked inside it; empty, it weighs a substantial 30 pounds, evidencing its solid iron construction. Hung from a tripod over your fire or placed on your stovetop, the potjie pot will serve generations with occasional seasoning.
This sturdy flat bottomed kettle will turn your kitchen into an old-fashioned cooking sanctuary-just like your grandmother had. Unlike your Grandmother's kettles these are newly manufactured and coated with a baked on vegetable oil to preserve the cast iron. Seasoning these cooking pots in the ‘Old Fashioned Way’ with a good shortening or vegetable oil will blacken them naturally over time and with used. This will also make the pot stronger and more elastic (yes, cast iron can become brittle), resulting in a more beautiful pot like cast iron from the old days.
All sizes work great with a tripod or on our Backyard Fire pit - fire pit not included
Our flat-bottomed potjies (pronounced “poikeys”) are a re-imagining of a time-tested form of cooking pot that has been used throughout Europe and Africa since at least the 1600s, and possibly as far back as the Iron Age. They adapt the cast-iron construction and rounded shape that cause potjies to cook food so evenly and well, compromised with a flat bottom so that this exceptional sample of ancient crafters' genius can be used on modern stovetops. Each potjie pot is equipped with a sturdy handle for lifting and a well-fitted lid. Cook in your flat-bottomed potjie by hanging it over a fire or placing it on a stove burner, or pile hot coals against the deep lip of the lid to make an efficient Dutch oven.
