Hi, Bonnie

Yeah, my DOs are an 8" and a 6", so they should fit. I watched a Youtube series on food storage and cooking from storage (the Mormon style of keeping 3 months to a year of food, not the johnny-come-latelies who think the world is going to end because the wrong party won an election), and the woman advises to keep a Sun Oven for cooking during power outages. She cooks with CI in hers to hold heat when the sun goes behind a cloud. She just pre-heats her DO in the Sun Oven while she is prepping her food. Now I do that when I bake focaccia bread to get a nice crust on the bottom. I did a lot of solar cooking this un-winter before I got back to work on my trailer. I think every weekday in January except one I cooked dinner for my kids in the solar oven, popped it into a Crock Pot to keep warm for them, and then took myself off to work in the evening. Not usually with CI pots, though. That will be the experiment for this summer.

Catherine, in sunny and dry NM

We've always just packed ours in a brown paper bag after rinsing out the insides.

I don't have a pic of them, but Courtney and Roy have the best carriers I've seen. She scrounged up some theater film cases aluminum I think. Hinged lids with latch, bumper feet and a handle on them. Fits a 12" I believe. Doug

While it is not a cover my wife makes these. Since space is a premium, I pack my plates and other smalls inside my 12" DO. This liner protects the oven and helps when I store the DO to let some air inside.



For a cover I use a Lodge.

Good idea for the jeans holders! Next time we are thrift store shopping it will give us something really useful to look for. I made a list of all the sizes we need. :?
