Get in touch with your inner mountain man/women cooking with the GSI Outdoors Hard Anodized Dutch Oven. This dutch oven is ideal for stewing, steaming, frying or baking on car camping trips, and is one third the weight of traditional cast iron ovens. GSIs hard anodization process hardens the cooking surface to about twice as hard as stainless steel, which makes cleaning the GSI Dutch oven a breeze. The anodized coating also delivers non-stick performance, doesnt need to be seasoned like cast iron, and seals the aluminum away from your food. To cook, just set this outdoor dutch oven over bed of hot coals and close the lid. If youre baking, throw a few coals over the tight fitting, rimmed top for even heating. When youre done cooking, remove the oven with the sturdy bail-wire handle and dig in.
