Lodge Logic 5 Qt double Dutch oven and casserole with skillet cover. Sturdy integral, ovenproof loop handles for convenience. Tightly controlled metal chemistry and exacting mold tolerances deliver consistent product for even heating and superior cooking performance. The High Dome lid offers greater capacity and also works double duty as a skillet. Electro statically coated with a proprietary vegetable oil, and cured at high temperatures to allow the oil to deeply penetrate the surface of the cast iron. 10.25 inches in diameter. Dutch oven depth 4 inches and lid depth 1-1/2 inches
The item is sealed with a pre-seasoning oil which leads to a drop that can appear like rust which will burn off with 1-2 cookings.

My first cook was a honey white loaf. I just generously wiped some olive oil inside the Dutch oven and baked it. After it was done the loaf fell right out of the pan.when I turned it over, no parchment paper needed. This is hands down one of the best purchases I've made on Amazon!
I mostly use it to make bread either no knead or dough from my kitchen aid. Makes a good crusty bread. The top pan traps in the moisture. Also use it for deep frying food or stews. I love that the top has no handle so I can use it as a pan, which I use all the time for frying up small sides/servings. The only thing is, be very careful if you do use it as a cover and slowly lift up and away from you with gloved hands because of all the steam that comes out. It is a bit more inconvenient using as it doesn't have a handle (though there is a version which has the handle if you prefer), but I prefer the multi use purpose of using the top as a pan either way.
The first time I cooked in it, the oven got covered by rust inside, and food became grey and got black flakes in it.
As was mentioned in instructions, I thought that the oven needs additional seasoning with vegetable oil. I cleaned the oven with water and cloth again, no detergent. Then let it dry and covered with olive oil inside and out.
The next cooking gave the same result: rusty insides and dirty food that I had to throw away.
My husband researched in the internet and found other people with similar problems. Some say that Lodge would do a better job if they didn't season their oven at all as this seasoning seems to be of not very high quality. In my case it was uneven, flaked away and didn't prevent from rust.
After gathering some suggestions in the internet, my husband spent a whole evening trying to put a thicker seasoning over the oven: he put multiple layers of olive oil and kept the oven on the stove at middle temperature to let the seasoning stick.
The next cooking again gave the same black-rusty results.
In addition to that, leaving the warm oven lead on the table during cooking left a black circle on the surface that I can't wash away. And drying washed oven on the table left another rusty circle on the table that I also can't wash away.
After all these highly disappointing experiences, I decided to throw away this oven before it destroyed my countertops completely.
