This product does what its meant to do. Because it's not "hi-tech," you do go through a learning process using it. Like any camp oven, you have to keep the bottom of your food at a reasonable distance from the heat source. Dutch ovens have the legs.. and with the diffuser and a low flame, there should be no problem. Depending on what you cook, the lid on the dutch might serve as a heat protector keeping the ambient hot air from the top of the food. You might want to consider not using a heavy lid at that time. Remember too, that the tent can also serve as a very effective windshield if you want to use the lid with coals on top. Whether you're using top coals or leaving the lid off, you have to keep your eye on the food as the food cooks faster than you'd expect... especially breads and cakes. Obviously, the heat concentrates around your cooking vessel and food, but it can be controlled with patience and practice. Use a thermometer. I purchased this product a couple of years ago. The tent shows some char and wear around the edges, but still works for me. My learning process involved some overcooked breads, biscuits and rolls in the beginning. When using a stove, take your time and keep the fire low. BTW, you don't have to use a DO with this product. Pie pans (far above the flame)and skillets (although a bit awkward) are workable.
That’s right. Cook delicious Dutch oven meals right on your Camp Chef stove. From slow roasted Dutch oven dinners, to a family favorite peach cobbler, make it all on the back patio or campsite. This Dutch Oven Dome traps, diverts and circulates heat creating a convection oven that is very effective when cooking with a Dutch oven. Cooking over a stove with a heat diffuser plate (included) reduces the cost and mess of charcoal. This Dutch Oven Dome can also be used with charcoal or on a gas grill.
Do not let fire restrictions shrink your camp’s menu. A Dutch Oven Dome used with your Camp Chef stove will allow you to enjoy your favorite meals without the use of charcoal. Be sure to check restrictions with the local ranger station before use.
