Dutch Ovens

Whether the Dutch Oven actually originated in the Netherlands is little known. In any case, it owes its name to an Englishman who was inspired around 1700 by the Dutch technique of casting cast iron. Abraham Darby started the production of Dutch Ovens and soon the pan became very popular among pioneers and colonists because of its versatility. In very many countries, the Dutch Oven has always remained popular. Fortunately, thanks in part to its versatility, the Dutch Oven is becoming increasingly popular in the Netherlands as well.
