At some of the
recent gatherings one of my toys that received a lot of comment was
the Mair Dutch (Camp) Oven Lifter. My early days of camp oven
cooking resulted in accidents with heat beads and ash. The
complimentary lifters that came with my camp ovens didn’t seem all
that stable when I used them.
This lifter from
a female viewpoint pushes down equally on three points when you
squeeze the handles and I can easily manage lifting a lid full of
beads and without burning myself or tipping the beads off or ash
into the food.
Lots gave it a test and agreed with me that it was a
great cooking tool and exceptionally stable. The Mair Dutch oven
lifter comes in three sizes, a 14" for working at a table or on a
cooking stand, a 22" for cooking in a pit or close to the ground,
and the newest addition the 9". The lifters are made of steel for
years of service. I have both the 9” and the 14”.
years ago these lifters were made in a small shop in Midway Utah,
each piece of steel was hand cut and bent then welded, hand dipped
in paint and hung to dry, after which they were packaged and shipped
to dealers and individuals. Today these lifters are manufactured off
shore using state of the art manufacturing equipment, ensuring
precision bends and perfect welds, then powder coated for a more
durable finish and a smoother action”.
