A round pot that is used for cooking is the Dutch oven. It works just like an oven as it keeps heat inside in order to cook food. You will be able to see two types of Dutch ovens which are basically the kitchen and the camp type. When you need the oven for home cooking then you should choose the kitchen type which has a thinner metal with a flat bottom. The camp type, on the other hand, is much thicker and heavier and comes with the leg. It is by using these legs that you will be able to place it under the charcoal when cooking.


Aluminum and iron are the two most common metals that are used in making Dutch ovens. They are lighter and will nit rust that easily. If weight is an issue then you have to choose the much lighter aluminum oven. But you have to know though that aluminum ovens are not good at conducting heat and they will produce uneven cooking.  On the other hand, the iron ovens are much heavier which are great for family cooking and will be able to hold heat well a sit cook providing you with more even results. Because they are heavy duty, they can be used in camps without worrying that they may get damaged from dropping it.


When choosing a Dutch oven here, it is also crucial that you will pick the right size. They basically come in standard deep dish. It is the standard types that heat up food faster in the center compared to the deeper type.


When you are cooking food the fast way, then you should pick the standard one but if you will use it for slower cooking then you can pick the deeper type. To learn more about ovens, visit http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/17/gender-neutral-easy-bake-oven_n_2318521.html.



You may cook with Dutch ovens using charcoal. You can either use a fire pit or a metal oil drip can in order to start cooking. If you can't find an oil drip can then you can also use discarded per trays or garbage can lids. It would be better if you will use a pan so that you will not be having a hard time when cleaning time comes and you will not be leaving any trace of food on the ground. You have to make sure that you will set your pan in a good spot away from people that are passing by, check it out!
