Traditional Potjie Pots at Potjie Pots

A traditional Potjie (pronounced POE-gee) pot is pot belly shaped standing on 3 legs to put it at the proper height over a camp fire.  Long used in Africa, they have caught on world wide as the perfect outdoor cooking pot for all kinds of foods from baked beans to stews and roasted meats. They are perfect for slow roasted BBQ favorites like pulled pork and beef brisket.

Potjie Pots come in many sizes, from a small mini pot to a 19 plus gallon cook kettle. Potjies include well-fitted lids and strong carrying handles and are made from all cast iron. They have three legs and the rounded bottoms to create a rolling boil motion that prevents food from sticking. Potjie Pots are necessities for versatile outdoor cooking though our flat bottomed Potjie Pots can be used on any stove top.

The lids are thick, cast iron and hot coals on top turn your Potjie Pot into a Dutch Oven for baking - a truly versatile cast iron cooking pot!

Our Potjie pots are 100% food safe and pre-seasoned with a fine coating of vegetable oil.  With proper care, they will last a lifetime. Care instructions are included with every cast iron potjie pot.
