I was looking at an Enameled cast iron dutch oven at Sams club tonight that I thought we be a good piece to use on the egg. Does anyone have any feedback if this is a good thought.

    I use them all the time - they work great, even when tiny, angry, foul-mouthed, drunken, canadians burn about 4 gallons of nasty indian food in them for twelve hours.

    We have the red enamel coated cast iron dutch oven from Sams and have used the heck out of it on the Egg. We've been very happy with the purchase and have no complaints about the item at all.

    thanks for the help. Think I will buy one for my wife for mothers day and then it is all mine.

    So would it be safe to say that enamel or porcelain coated cast iron cookware delivers all the benefits of cast iron without the pain of seasoning?

    I think the only reason to use an enameled dutch oven is if food is reactive to cast iron dugdbug, at least that is what i have read in some cookbooks. It won't hurt the enamel. I'm a new egger so until I've more experience with how much cleanup is required on the outside I won't put my purple 7.5 qt in the egg. It is new and too pretty. How dirty does stuff get on the outside?

    Well so far besides the food and the wood the only thing I have put in is a cheap nonstick drrip pan. That pan has always come clean with just water and a wipe.

    There are many here that use CI for acidic cooks. The enamelled stuf will pick up some colour but it cleans off with oxy clean.

    For sure one of the best tips I've learned here is how to prep them for easier cleanup. Thanks to Vidalia1 I now put a nice coating of dish soap on the exterior of the dutch oven and cleanup is a snap. Also those sponge type magic erasers will get the tough spots.
