Our research tells us that the Dutch oven was originally created by the Pennsylvania Dutch in the 1700s. The Dutch oven is a large pot with a tight-fighting lid. The pot is usually made of raw cast iron.  The cast iron pot develops a non-stick surface if seasoned (coating the pot with cooking oil and baking it in a 350°F oven for an hour).
