can you cook in a dutch oven on a stove?

I've got an anodized aluminum dutch oven and want to know if we can use this as a normal pot/pan over a stove.

the type we have is the GSI anodized one, 10" and 12". I'd like to know if some sort of heat plate is necessary to prevent damage to the dutch oven or to distribute the heat better.

I know the preferred method is to use charcoal ---

Any info is good info ...

Yes. It's like a deep skillet with a lid. You just won't get heat coming from the top.

Bon appetit!

That is the norm in one friend's kitchen box. He doesn't even pack a skillet/fry pan. Heat it up!

We use them on the stovetop all the time. They work great that way. The 10 inch is easy to use because it doesn't have feet. The 12 inch, you just have to be careful with positioning because of the feet. Anodized aluminum rocks....easy to clean.

It looks like the steel elevator stand that they sell for the 10 could work good I'd you want to get it further from the flame. Tortilla warmer comes to mind

I just ordered the 10. My wife says why the hell do we need both? I say "because it was cheap, lightweight, nests in our 12, and because it can replace another piece of gear that tends to burn shit because of hot spots. Why the hell does she need so many shoes?

Got a good price $56 for new with free shipping at makias.com Everyone else sells at the $69 retail. Someone was selling an unused one in Idaho on Craigslist but of course I was a few days late

I've had no problems with hot spots directly on a Partner stove.
Tell your wife.....this is why you need both sizes. Pizza & brownies, Mountain man eggs & cinnamon rolls

The upside down lids work great as griddles. We carry iron though.

I have a GSI anodized 10 DO that is carried inside my GSI 12 as well. Used as a small DO some times but mostly used as an additional boiler on the cook stove. As posted above, we also use the GSI 12 as a boiler on the partner steel cook stove. Works great!

You can also bake with Dutch Oven on a burner. Use a deflector for the burner and a tent that looks like a Yurt hut. The heat flows around and over just like a convection oven in your home. Have baked everything from Lasagna and Italian herb/garlic pull-a=parts to blackberry buckle . I carry the aluminum on the river but the flavor is best from a good cast iron oven.
