GSI's hard-anodized cast aluminum has a durable cooking surface that offers non-stick like performance for authentic Dutch Oven cooking. The GSI Hard Anodized Dutch Oven 14in never needs seasoning and the 14in model is the deepest for larger meals. They're easy to clean, lightweight and very packable. You've never cooked on anything like it! When it comes to reliable baking, browning and roasting, a thick hard anodized surface excels at even heat control. Food cooks up quickly and evenly as the flow of your heat source radiates throughout the top, bottom, and sides. Lid lip holds coals and charcoal for even cooking temperature on the GSI Hard Anodized Dutch Oven 14in. Fixed legs increase stability and raise the bottom of the Dutch off the coals for ventilation.
