We love to use a Dutch Oven for baking. You can roast meats and bake breads and pies. We highly recommend setting one of these trivets down on the bottom of your Dutch Oven and then placing a baking dish, like our P-4135 Redware Pie Pan, on top of the trivet. This elevates the baking dish by a half inch, allowing air to circulate beneath. It turns your Dutch Oven into a convection oven with amazing and delicious results. No more scorching your biscuit bottoms! Hand-forged iron triangle, about 5-1/2” across.
