@chienfou I heartily agree with you, and came here to say as much. It’s not what I grew up calling a “Dutch oven” nor is it like anything on the Wikipedia page (just in case it’s more colloquial than I thought).
/giphy princess bride I do not think it means what you think it means
@xobzoo Agreed At a whopping 1.2 lbs (total) this doesn’t even qualify as a stock pot.It’s heavy duty aluminum foil with a lid.I can see it used as a steamer though.On a side note…great gif One of the funniest scenes of a very funny movie.Now I have to watch it again.So in the spirit of the movie… a dutch oven?..“Inconceivable!”
Yep, a glass lid, which pretty much means it’s not oven-friendly either, another strong argument against calling this stock pot a “Dutch oven”. For that matter, the specs mention nothing about using it in an oven; it’s very much stovetop-oriented, while a real Dutch oven sees a lot of utility for doing things like slow-bake pot roast.
It’s an impractically small stock pot with incomprehensible accessories. Nothing else.
