I've seen Lodge Logic cast iron at Krogers. Still kicking myself for not getting it when it was 40% off on sale. Keeping my eyes open for that to happen again!

Default Cast iron cooking

Just a question on Cast Iron Cooking. I would like to be able to make yeast bread without the oven. Could I do that in a Dutch Oven?

I believe that there is a thread dedicated to DutchOven cooking and there are recipes for all kinds of ways to cook up the meals, breads and cakes (pies) ... now I am hungry again!

I think it's a full size muffin, 12.

I have a 6 one almost just like it. Use it for corn bread muffins. I don't see why you couldn't use the one you've got, you'll just have 11 instead of 12.

Wanted to ask what is the rectangle pot at the top right of rabidcoyote666's picture? Is it a type of roaster or just a non-round DO?

Also, this coming Feb. we are heading to Mich. and plan to stop by the Lodge Foundry....is there anything I should look for there that would be harder to find anywhere else. As we live near Augusta we have many stores that carry cast iron like Academy, Kroger, Ace, of course 8 Walmarts, and so on!

This was an awesome read with many helpful posts!

I always wanted to get a 2'x3' (just a guesstimate) flat iron grill that I could use to cook for many people. I can never seem to find them

It looks like a loaf pan to me, but I could be wrong.

FYI, glass despite it appearing so, is quite far from inert. And perhaps to assist those who may insist otherwise I suggest a simple experiment.

Take two small glass jars or whatever you can find, i do not propose you smash bottles to get glass pieces. Just two glass containers of your liking. Now a 5ml tube of superglue, put the glue on a surface and attach the second glass item.

Now i am glossing over the best ways of using glues and process such as roughing the surface. But go do whatever your thing is in sticking glass together. Now once the glue has cured you will have what you think is a pretty firmly attached pair of bottles.

Clean up and put this aside and come check on it every day for about a week. You will sooner rather than later find that the glue will degrade and release its bond with one or both surfaces. Even low stress handling will cause this break.


Actually small edit: just FYI you should not really consider altering our opinions away from glasses seemingly inert status. It is by far the most stable and NON Toxic materials to store food and water in. The extremely low level processes that i mentioned are not to my knowledge going to cause any real sort of impact that you might need to take into consideration. Cheers. sorry to nit pick

Glasses leach alkalies which neutralise's the glues structure until it fails. Using epoxy when it comes to needing an adhesive for glass surfaces is the best solution. Epoxy type materials are not so susceptible or are entirely unaffected by this process. Not all epoxy's are created or best for any or all situations so do your research when selecting epoxy as a solution.

Anyways... way big post. hope it helps. But be assured glass is not inert even at room temperature.
