Perfect for the refined cook who loves style as much as function, the Lodge Color Enamel 3 Qt. Dutch Oven in Caribbean is the perfect size for cooking family meals or side dishes and has a graduated blue enamel finish that will look beautiful on your dining table. This classic round enamel cast iron oven has handy touches like the large, easy to grab knob on the lid -- it's oven safe to 500 degrees -- and the two handles on the base that make this a cook's best friend. By combining the superior cooking performance of enamel cast iron construction with the unparalleled beauty of the nuanced blue finish, this durable oven is on its way to becoming a family heirloom. Cast iron has excellent heat retention and diffusion properties, meaning cast iron vessels maintain heat and cook food thoroughly and evenly, no matter the cooking surface. It even works with induction heating elements. An enamel coating eliminates the need to season the metal and allows for more thorough cleaning, and makes the gorgeous graduated blue finish possible. Dishwasher safe.

Enamel cast iron cookware is not microwave or dishwasher safe. To keep your enamel cookware in perfect shape for years to come, hand wash with warm soapy water and dry immediately; do not air dry. Use only plastic or nylon scouring pads to avoid damaging the enamel; likewise, use only wooden or silicon utensils while cooking. The non-toxic enamel coating eliminates the need to season the metal and allows for more thorough cleaning. You can store any uneaten food right in the pot in the refrigerator or freezer without worrying about the food reacting with the enamel.
