They’re beloved because of their tremendous versatility: a Dutch oven can be used for sauteeing, frying, roasting, baking, simmering, or boiling. Some Dutch ovens are even used over open flame.

The Gaia hypothesis posits that this interactivity of the organic and non-organic is unconsciously but purposefully orchestrated. The overarching objective of that orchestration is to maintain optimal conditions for life on the planet.
