    Comments about GSI Outdoors 12 inch Cast Aluminum Dutch Oven:

    I have had the GSI 10" model for several years now and it has served me very well. Because of this, and the fact that the 10" will nest inside of it I purchased the 12" version. So far so good. It is light and easy to use. The only complaint I have is that the legs are too short. When I tried to stack this oven on top of a cheap cast iron 12" I have, it rocked back and forth resting on the lid handle. At first I just figured this was a result of my cast iron dutch being a cheap no-name pot that is not very well cast. However, I set the lid to GSI 12" on the ground, and then set the pot on top of that to simulate cooking with 2 GSI 12"ers stacked and had the same result. The handle on the lid needs to be a little shorter or the legs need to be a little longer.
    Having said all this, if you are only going to be cooking with this one dutch oven, or you don't stack your dutch ovens when cooking with them, this is a great product and will serve you well. I should also note that the 10" will stack fine on top of the 12" if you get the GIS dutch oven stand item# 40411.

      Comments about GSI Outdoors 12 inch Cast Aluminum Dutch Oven:

      Have been a cast iron dutch oven cooker for a long time. Didn't think I would ever switch, but this one worked as great as my 12" cast oven, at a third of the weight! Was nice not having something so heavy, and was able to clean it and not be concerned with rust! Definitely a convert!!
