Lodge dutch ovens with spiral bail handles

This is a Lodge indoor dutch oven with a spiral bail handle.

The 9 quart dutch oven ONLY comes with this handle.

But the 5 and 7 quart dutch oven can come with this handle, or with 2 side loop handles.

The difference amounts to personal preference; The loop handles make it easier to handle the pot in and out of the oven.

The bail handle is for hanging your pot over a fire, of course. The spiral in the middle is for comfort when lifting.

The pots with the loop handles are cheaper than the ones with the bail handles, so if you don't plan to cook over a fire...

Isn't it ironic, that I would call a pot with a spiral bail handle, an "indoor pot"?

I refer to pots without legs as "indoor pots" because they can be used in your indoor kitchen, in the oven or on the stove.

As opposed to "outdoor pots" with legs to be used over coals.

But I recognize that if you're using this pot over a fire, then it becomes an outdoor pot!
