Three legs support the cauldron, which measures 13 inches high and wide. It holds 14 quarts, a quite generous capacity, and weighs a solid 45 pounds. The round lid is equipped with a handle and fits neatly into the wide mouth, while a curved carrying handle is attached for hanging or moving the whole potjie

A potjie (pronounced “poikey”) is 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. Their design exemplifies the unsung mechanical genius of ancient crafters: the deep, round bottom ensures a good rolling boil that cooks well and prevents food from sticking, while the three legs provide maximal stability, and the wide-mouthed shape allows versatility in outdoor cooking. Each potjie pot is equipped with a sturdy handle for lifting and a well-fitted lid. Cook in your potjie over an open fire or a gas burner, or pile hot coals on the deep, commodious lid to make an efficient Dutch oven.
