Boil, bake, or brew in this superbly versatile cauldron-style pot. Made from solid foundry-cast iron, the pot is adorned with concentric raised ribs around its curved belly. Keep the contents from losing heat and moisture with the well-fitted lid; tote the cauldron or hang it over an open fire with the sturdy arched handle that runs from opposite points of the turned rim.

This size option for our flat potjie is 4.5 inches tall and a squat 7.5 inches wide. It has a two-quart, half-gallon fluid capacity and weighs a manageable 7 pounds. Look after this pot well and it will serve you for a lifetime!

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. 

Made from pure cast iron with no pot-metal additive, cauldrons and iron cookware from Annie’s Collections™ are molded, finished, polished, and oil-seasoned by hand. Each item is food-safe and can be used for cooking, burning incense or candles, holding coarse-ground spices or herbs, or an endless array of other uses. Seasoning instructions will be included with your purchase. Enjoy the selection of standing and hanging pots, ranging from a favor-sized mini cauldron to a 19-plus gallon cooking kettle, and related iron implements to fit your every need.

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.
