New! Dutch Oven Lid Lifter

If you have ever cooked with a Dutch oven, you know how precarious it can be lifting an ember-cover lid with a stick or a fire poker. Hook this 3-point lifter on your lid handle, and the two feet will firmly hold your lid level and keep it from dumping embers into your food. Dutch oven cooking is quickly becoming one of our favorite methods.
