    Thanks everyone for your help. We have the Lodge combo 5qt on the way!


      PBCDad did you end up with the Lodge Combo-Cooker (3.2 quart with skillet as the lid), or the Lodge Double-Dutch oven, which is a 5 quart pot with a skillet as the lid?

      Just curious. I've got the standard Lodge 5 quart with lid, my daughter has that double dutch oven and likes it, plus her lid doubles as a 10" skillet. I've thought of the combo cooker for bread, and those times I need a smaller dutch oven than my 5 quart.

      Either way, if you keep that cast iron seasoned, it will be great for baking and anything else you want to throw at it, without anything flaking off in your food. Well - I guess seasoning can come off, but its edible, unlike porcelain!

        PBCDad great choice! I use my 5 quart Lodge frequently - for chili this weekend. It's pretty much non-stick for anything I've made in it. Hope you guys like it for your bread baking! I only have a 12" Lodge skillet, so sometimes with I had gotten the double dutch oven instead, to have a 10" skillet.

      I got one of the 5 quart dutch ovens by Lodge. Ordered it a while back and it finally arrived yesterday. Unfortunately it had some manufacturing issues (A deep dent in the bottom and some serious grind marks all along one side). I contacted Lodge directly and showed them pictures, they confirmed that is absolutely not what it is supposed to look like.
      I've now gone on to Amazon to get a replacement sent out (and of course the customer support chat crashed so not sure where it all ended up, I'm just going to wait to see if I get an email or if I have to contact them again!)

      I love my 10" Lodge skillet, but I am tempted to get a 12" one as well.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
