Why are Dutch ovens called ‘Dutch’?

why-are-dutch-ovens-called-dutch1No-one is quite sure but there are various theories.

  • In 1704, an Englishman called Abraham Darby, travelled to Holland to see a Dutch casting process. On his return home, Darby refined the method and began casting pots. He shipped them to the new colonies in America and all over the world. The name may have originated from the Dutch casting process.
  • Early Dutch traders and salesmen peddled cast iron pots hence the name.
  • Dutch settlers in the region of Pennsylvania used cast iron pots or kettles.
