What do people use for a lid lifter when cooking in a Dutch oven?
Didn't know there were options...
+2 to what WingShot uses
Lodge A5DLL Deluxe Lid Lifter
a stick, lol.
or a potholder...or if it gets REALLY HOT, a husband with longer arms...cause though i may be awesome and a woman! i am also short.
Just got the one pictured but haven't used it yet. Clearance isle at Walmart a few days ago.
I've got the Lodge and Camp Chef lid lifters. The Lodge gives better control. I've seen Mair lifters and others on ebay.
This is what I use all the time. I love it!

This is the one I have
Jerry in MA
I have the same one Wingshot and Jerry_Ma have. It's stellar. But I have been known to use standard grill tongs, kitchen tongs, a long handled spoon, a knife and even a stick. Heck, in the absence of any of that, I guess one could open it with pretty much anything, just be careful not to get burned or spill the ash on your food. It's all about camping, and eating good; you don't have to have specialty tools to have a good time.
Get yourself a pair of heat resistant gloves also. HF has cheap welding gloves, not worth crap for welding. But good for dutch oven cooking
I have and use several Camp Chef lid lifters.
It's yetavon's fault
In a pinch a large pair of channel locks will work, just make sure you have a glove.
Used the same as Wingshot till last year and got one of these......
I use the same one as Pinn and Yetavon., only mine has the silicone grips on it. Like this.
Funny....mine looks identical to that.....
We actually use the handle of a paint roller. Took the roller off. It works OK, but you have to be VERY careful where you pick the lid up at! And good at balancing it. Works in a pinch until we can get an actual lid lifter.
