Default Dutch Ovens - Other Than #8s!

I have a dozen or so DO and nine of them are size 8s. 8s seem to be all I see. I lucked up and found one BSR Century #12 with no lid, a Griswold LBL #6 with no lid, and a Iron Mountain #9 complete. I just won an auction for a late 60's to early 70's #5 Lodge DO with lid. Is it just me or are the non-8s harder to find?

Just like #8 skillets are easy to find, the #8 DO was probably the most produced for its size.

Sorry for the poor pics i will get better ones once i can get to looking at it. I did notice the inside of the lid has some printing but could not read it in this light will get it cleaned a little and do better pics. I assume this one is nickle and will be my first one of this material to try and clean any recommendations ? My plan was to toss it into my lye tank?

Long soaks in a lye tank, weekly SS scrubs until they are clean. 30 minute vinegar / water bath and season. Mostly lots of patience. I don't use brushes or picks.

As long as it's cast iron and not aluminium, lye will work fine. I've done 2 or 3 pieces in lye that are nickel plated.

Lloyd,

That is a great looking piece!

Mind if I ask a few questions?

What are "SS scrubs"?

Why do you avoid "brushes"?

Thank you.
