Stansport One Quart Cast Iron Dutch Oven Review

well it’s January the 3rd 2015 and it is
65 degrees here in Kentucky they you all
from Kentucky no good well what that
means it matter-of-fact you from the
Midwest states knows what that means
that means the bad stuffs coming right
behind it matter of fact I think by
mid-week next week our highs are
supposed to be in the 20s and lows in
the teens so it’s a mixed blessing when
you live your Kentucky and you got warm
weather but anyway the reason I made
this video is because I want to do a
review on this stands port 1 port cast
iron Dutch oven I want to talk about the
pros and the cons of this little Dutch
oven and give you my overall opinion I’m
also gonna be cooking some white beans
and ham hocks one of my favorites good
wonderful southern dish you know it’s
easy if you haven’t made it before you
should try we want to show you how I’ll
show you how I make them and there’s a
couple different ways they either make
in the crock pot or as in this case in a
Dutch oven on coals of course with all
white beans you need to let them soak
overnight and pick out the ones that
don’t look so good otherwise it could
taint the flavor overall so just keep
that in mind this is the first time I
have used this court Dutch oven so let
me get my coals going and we’ll cook up
a batch of white beans and ham hocks all
right so I got a good bit of coals going
and I’ve got the Dutch oven on those
coals now this particular Dutch oven
doesn’t have legs on it so it can sit
right on the coals I had to cut the meat
in the fat off of the ham hock bone
because the ham hock bone was so big it
wouldn’t fit in the Dutch oven without
and still be able to put the top on it
so if you’re doing it in a crock pot
just throw it all in there I really
think the bone adds something to the
overall flavor and the meat and fat will
fall right off the bone so we’re gonna
go ahead and add the meat and the fat
and I’ve also got a quarter of an onion
cut up here we’re going to add that to
it as well
you already see it’s boiling it looks
good
now I may have to add a little bit of
water this as time goes on I also want
to go ahead and add pepper to it now as
well I don’t want to add salt because
salt will actually increase the cooking
time a little bit pepper my hand over it
I’ll add this all at the last okay
that’s cooking let’s talk about the
stand support one quart cast-iron Dutch
oven I bought it online I paid 20 bucks
and 80 cents and that was with shipping
now the first thing I noticed when I got
it was that the handle had a crack in it
I emailed the people I bought it from
they said we will two day you out a new
lid that’s week a half go ahead and seen
it so I don’t expect it’s not a deal
breaker of me I mean 20 bucks you know
for a small court cast-iron Dutch oven
you know I don’t feel like I got burned
anyway you look at it the quality is so
so I think Lodge makes a a one quart
cast-iron Dutch oven but it’s like twice
as much and I’m sure it’s probably twice
the quality as well there have been some
reports that the lids don’t fit on these
very well mine fit just fine I didn’t
have any issues at all but the next
thing I did notice was the handle that
came with it
it definitely had an engineering flaw if
you picked it up any other way than
straight up the handle would come off
and of course that would mean that you
could possibly dump your vittles in the
fire so that was first thing I did it
was I took the handle off and made my
own handle out a 12-gauge get when I was
wire that I use for my grape trellises
it works fine if you get one of these I
highly recommend that you just disregard
the the wire handle that comes with it
cuz it’s junk just just put it plainly
it’s junk I do love this size of the
Dutch oven
especially if I’m camping it’s perfect
for like a couple of people however if
you’re backpacking it’s probably going
to be a different story
this little puppy comes in at four
pounds and 11 ounces and that is some
significant pack material if I were
going on an overnighter
maybe hiking a mile or two I might think
about bringing this any distance is
greater than that it would stay at home
it really is best suited for campsites
are just short distance camping and
hiking type of things so here’s the pros
as I see them just to kind of run them
down the price I mean 20 bucks it’s hard
to beat you can buy one experiment with
it and you know you don’t feel like
you’ve been beat you know you don’t feel
like you’ve been price walk booked on it
so it’s a good deal it’s cast iron I
mean with proper care it should last a
lifetime and she’d take your kids
camping now and you use one of these
they’ll be fighting for it whenever
you’re dead and going so proper care
it’ll last a lifetime is probably your
kids lifetime as well
it’s a court size Dutch oven seriously I
know that is cool there’s just not a lot
of people making them out there I guess
it’s not worth their time and if your
camp cooking for a family size group you
could purchase several these little
dutch ovens put your veggies in them
then use your big dutch oven for the
main meal that would be awesome and they
could actually take spoons and and just
you know take it right from the Dutch
oven itself that’s awesome now the cons
again it’s four pounds and 11 ounces it
almost knocks it out of the backpacking
category all together the second time
the handle is junk just get rid of it
it’s no good and third
yes it’s cast-iron but in my case to
handle is cracked so there’s a quality
issues there it’s not that your metal to
the use but it is inconvenient so is it
worth it
overall I would say absolutely I think
for crying out loud it’s a $20 cast-iron
Dutch oven I mean that’s just cheap and
you can use it and you don’t have to
feel bad if something goes wrong with it
it’s a good starter model so I do
recommend the stands for it 1 quart
Dutch oven cast-iron 20 bucks you can’t
go wrong
alright looks like we’re done when I had
a little salt to it mix it in and then
I’m gonna be very very glad we got
smellivision because you jumped through
there and what my but to take this
because it smells that good white beans
and ham hocks give it a try
Jesus thank you for this food thank you
thank you thank you

Small Dutch Ovens Buyers’ Guide

What to make in a small dutch oven?

A great recipe to make in a small dutch oven is one-pot pasta. Because of how functional this pot is, you can easily make sauce and pasta in one place, saving you the time and the hassle. This also means there will be fewer pots for you to wash once you are done. Making soup is also great as you can let it slow-simmer for a long time, and you will make enough to last you a few days of leftovers. The slow simmering means you can also make stews in your small dutch oven. Layering vegetables and rice to create a perfect casserole is also possible with your dutch oven without dusting off your old casserole dish.

How many ounces or cups does a small dutch oven hold?

A small dutch oven is usually around 3-4 quarts in size, which is perfect if you are planning on cooking for one to three people. These small dutch ovens are very easy to maneuver and are not too heavy, so it is easy to transfer from stove to oven. This size holds enough food to have a few days of leftovers, but it is also not too big to whip out to cook a small bowl of oatmeal for one. You can make soups, stews, and reheat them easily with this size of the dutch oven. It is also perfect in that if you cook frequently, you won’t have to haul it back into a cabinet and out again when you are done cooking, and you can just leave it sitting around on your stove or countertops.
