Cast Aluminum Dutch Oven
Been looking for a 6 qt oval Dutch Oven. Readily available, but a bit pricey.
Just happened to find a used flea-market "vintage" roasting pot (w/cover) made of heavy cast-aluminum. Probably dates from 1940's. Measures 9"x12" at rim; about 4,5" high. Cover adds another inch to height. Cost me only a couple of bucks. Worth a try.
Will use this for Dutch Oven bread-baking? Would have preferred (Lodge) cast iron but perhaps this will be fine in a convection oven which evenly distributes the heat.
