l thought l'd try out the cast iron cooking pot yesterday, put in a whole chicken and some potatoes, placed it over a smallish fire and about an hour and a half later we had lovely roast chicken and almost roast potatoes.

l'm glad l bought this now and am looking forward to a nice cold winter around the fire.
