GSI Outdoors innovative hard-anodized construction brings premium performance to a camping classic. Made from durable, highly conductive cast aluminum, it heats up quickly and evenly and won’t rust, so it can go places where cast iron can’t. (Plus, it’s just one-third the weight, making it easier to take on the road and heft over the fire.) Dutch-oven cooking opens up a whole new world of backcountry culinary options, from eggs and biscuits to beef stew and home-baked bread.
Food just tastes better made over an open fire, but cooking it can be messy. This Dutch oven’s non-porous anodized surface means food won’t stick and the pot cleans up beautifully after you’re done. Best of all, there’s no need for time-consuming pre-seasoning. Dutch ovens cook with radiant heat, so they work best with charcoal or coals underneath as well as heaped on the lid. (They cook beautifully in your oven at home, too.) This lid has a lipped edge to hold coals in a ring.
The GSI Outdoors Dutch oven comes in three sizes, ten-, twelve-, and fourteen-inch. The ten-inch has no legs allowing it to nest in the larger ovens, while two larger sizes have three fixed legs to support them over the coals.
