Why is a dutch oven called a dutch oven?

2 Answers

The Dutch initially started producing their cast cooking vessels in the 17th century, creating a range of pots, pans and casserole dishes. ... Darby eventually in 1707 patented a casting procedure and named it the “Dutch oven”, thus explaining where the Dutch name originated for this cooking pot.

Because the covered pot to cook in actually came from the Netherlands, where the method of making them in cast iron was refined.
