The Petromax cast iron pots are perfect for outdoor cooking. The pots can be used directly on the fire or hung from a fire rack, so you can more easily control the temperature. The cast iron pots are very heat-conducting and retain heat well, making them perfect for both meat, vegetables and baking. When cooking in a cast iron pan, the meat is cooked very mildly, which retains vitamins and nutrients. The lid on the pots can be turned and used as a frying pan.
