These are Lodge tiny serving kettles. They're meant for, well, serving.
One is a pint, and one is a half pint. The Lodge 5 inch lid fits the pint kettle.
You can't use them on the stove or in the oven due to their feet. Just serving.
Product info states, "This is the way soup, stew, and chili should always be served!"
The pint kettle used to be sold in sets of four, as "cajun gumbo bowls."
They have "hundreds of uses, hot or cold". Salsa, dips, stews, nuts, dessert, condiments or snacks.
I agree that these kettles are useful for their stated purposes, but, the Lodge melting pot serves the same purposes, with the additional benefit of being able to use on the stove or in the oven.
I would say the same for the Sante Cabin cobbler pots, but those are discontinued.
So if you want a small cast iron bowl for serving purposes, the Lodge melting pot, which is just under one pint, is the way to go.
Unless aesthetics matter to you, and you like the little feet.
