THE CASE FOR
OUR CAST IRON

USE IT ANYWHERE

From kitchens to campfires, your Smithey is at home wherever there is heat and is designed to work on all sources, from gas and fire to induction and electric. And don’t worry, it won’t scratch your stovetop.

INVEST IN YOUR KITCHEN

Your grandchildren will thank you! We’ve designed and crafted every Smithey to withstand the test of time, become even better with age, and be an heirloom in your family’s kitchen. 

THE PERFECT WEIGHT

It’s true—cast iron can be heavy. Luckily, this is something we take into account when designing new pieces. We craft every Smithey to be as light as it can be while maintaining the perfect weight for optimal heat retention.

EASY TO CLEAN

Cast iron gets a bad rap for being hard to clean. We’re here to bust that myth and let you know that polished cast iron is easy to clean. Unlike rough cast iron, which allows food to get stuck in the crevices, polished cast iron like Smithey has a smooth surface that practically wipes clean. And, despite popular belief, you can use soap.

FAQ’s:
5.5 QT Dutch Oven

We stand behind the quality of our cast iron and carbon steel cookware. If your cookware is defective, we’ll replace it. If your cookware fails you after honest and normal use, we’ll repair or replace it.

Is the Smithey Dutch oven enameled?

The Smithey Dutch oven is non-enameled and naturally seasoned with a pure grape-seed oil. While great for breads, soups, stews and more- boiling pasta or water is not the best use of your Smithey Dutch oven.

Can I cook acidic dishes in my Smithey Dutch oven?

A well-seasoned Smithey does not fear any acidic dishes. Before diving into chili and tomato sauces however, we recommend establishing a more mature seasoning layer through baking or frying.

Can I put coals on top of the lid?

Yes! When using as a campfire Dutch oven we recommend inverting your lid so coals will stay on top.

5.5 Qt Dutch Oven for Christmas? YES PLEASE!!!

One of my top gifts for 2023 Christmas was the 5.5 qt dutch oven. I love it. It is a solid piece and definitely worthwhile to have in your list of cookware. The first thing I made was some vegetable beef soup. The second was home made tomato sauce. Soon I will use it to bake some sourdough. I love my Smithey.
