I have a bare metal 8 qt CI Dutch Oven handed down from my great-great grandmother and several raw metal CI spiders (with feet) of various sizes I use for camping. I would love to have an enamel coated one someday but either way your CI DO is great for many dishes. I use the DO for any and all of the following:

- Red Beans & Rice/White Beans/Pintos
- Hoppin' John
- Black Eyed Peas
- Gumbo (or anything that requires a roux)
- Soups, Stews, and Stocks
- Scalloped Potatoes
- Braising (tough cuts of beef/flank steak/country ribs)
- Deep Frying Fish & Chicken
- Roasting Tender Meats (Whole Chicken/Pork Loin/Beef Roast)

Outdoors (camping or on my grills/smokers):
- All of the Above
- Baking Biscuits/Rolls
- Baking Sweet Rolls
- Dump Cake
- Cobbler

Really the sky is the limit. Your CI DO is very versatile and will last several lifetimes if you take care of it.
