The Best Dutch Ovens: Lodge Logic Five-Quart Dutch Oven

I want to go beyond normal camp food for my next trip. I'm talking cobbler, cornbread, even pizza. What should I do?

Lodge has been making Dutch ovens in its Tennessee foundries for the last 100 years. The newest version is the five-quart, which strikes a nice balance between weight and capacity: It weighs as much as two gallons of water, but feeds up to eight people. Nice features include a lid that can be flipped over and used as a griddle. Ours has stayed seasoned and gained a nice patina without any extra work.
