Received this beauty and took it camping over the weekend. We had about 11 of us and cooked over the fire for breakfast and dinner both days - bacon, sausages, corn, fried rice, even a chicken casserole. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious.
Only downside was the seasoning process. Was not as straightforward - we did the process 3 times before cooking some bacon and it was still sticking (slightly though). The other issue was after using it the first time cooking bacon, I noticed it had started to rust by dinner. Normal? I didn't get a chance to oil it up after washing so that could be why.
I have the 12"bedourie oven. Awesome bit of gear. Lid works great as a frypan and oven cooked our pork roast to perfection. The quality and weight is fantastic. Will be buying the deep camp oven next too.
I've cooked with the traditional cast camp ovens but I like the light weight and the toughness of the oven. I've since bought a Southern Metal Spinners camp oven and rate both ovens very highly.
10" Livingstone works a treat. Agree with comment about lifter being off-centre but I use gloves mainly for lifting the lid.
Excellent bit of kit which looks as if it will last a lifetime or three!
Awesome camp oven universial cooked pizza in the simpson desert
My only complaint about the bedourie is that the lid handle is not centered evenly, so when you take the lid off to check the food, you need to be careful that ash doesn't fall in,,which is a bit of a concern,, have made a batch of scones using charcoal beads, damper, leg of lamb and pork in it. luv it
Seasoned and used for the first time. Every bit as good as the old cast iron ovens, just got to work on the heat as you don't need as much
Awesome a lot stronger then I thought
Tried the bedourie last camping trip, it was as good as a cast iron camp oven but sooooo much lighter. It also took up less space in the camper so was a welcome change. I used barbque heat beads as the fuel source, no more waiting for a bed of hot coals, and when the wind really blew, we were still able to use the bedourie. We have given away the camp oven we have used for the last 20 years
A Bedourie is light but great for cooking.
Can even be used over a low heat on gas stove for cooking camp oven like bread and casseroles when fires are not allowed.
Can also be used with heat beads .
Hi guys! Wondering if the lid can be used as a fry pan? And if the handles can be flipped 180 (degrees) to lift the lid 'upside down' so to speak? Otherwise, what would you recommend to hold the lid if using as a fry pan? Thank!
Absolutely, you can use the Bedourie lid as a frypan. It's one of its great hidden features - just be sure to season it like you would with the pot. The triangles on the side can be flipped so that you can get your handle hooked in.
Can the 10" fit inside the 12" one?
You can nest the 10" Bedourie inside the 12" Bedourie.
My daughter has just bought a 12" Bedourie and would like to know how to cure it before use
The process is relatively simple and very much the same for both Steel (Bedourie) and Cast Iron.
A teammate of mine, Dave, has written a really helpful blog on how to go about doing it which you can find here.
What size suitable trivet should be used with these oven? Thanks In advance
Depending on which size Bedourie Oven you are considering, you will need a trivet to fit either a 26cm diameter or 31cm diameter oven. The biggest trivet we have is the large Hilbilly Trivet, which is suitable for the large Bedourie oven, whilst the medium suits the smaller model. The 9Qt Campfire Camp Oven Trivet would be a tight fit for the small Bedourie, but I don't have one here at the moment to check for you sorry.
Thanks for the prompt reply, it will be the 10' oven. How much of a gap will there be with the smaller suggested trivet ?
I've just compared the dimensions, and as the 10" Bedourie oven is 26 ⌀ and the 9 Qrt Campfire Camp Oven Trivet is 25 ⌀ - so there will be a 1cm gap.
Does this actually weigh 6kg?
Well spotted! It looks like we've got some incorrect information on our site there. The smaller option weighs around the 2.8kg mark and the larger option is about 3.8kg. Sorry about that, I'll get the info on the website fixed asap!
