This heavy-duty Magnalite Cast Aluminum 5-Quart Dutch Oven has an energy-saving bottom to transfer heat quickly and evenly. Thin side walls allow you to cook at lower heat. Make soups, stews, braises and roasts in this versatile pan. The high-polished, hand-cast body and lid of this cast aluminum Dutch oven eliminate surface hot spots while the heavy lid locks in water and juices to reduce moisture loss. The cool-touch, sure-grip knob and handles are oven-safe up to 350 degrees, and a meat rack is included to elevate foods while cooking.
