Does anyone have much experience with either of these? I'm looking at maybe trying out the GSI aluminum dutch oven. Any insight as to weather the anodized coating holds up or is worth it?

Reflector ovens look interesting too. Both bring more options for cooking which is good for someone who's a bit of a...I guess foodie.

just wondering who's used them and if they're good or more of a pain. I'm sure they both have a learning curve.

Hello,
I have the 10 inch GSI dutch oven, and love it. I've used it a lot over the past 6 or 7 years and it shows no sign of wear. For a group of 4 people it is the prefect size for making lasagna, prime rib, cake, bannock, muffins, or just deep frying fish, making pancakes - anything you can think of.
Just made a reflector oven, will test it out next week. Not sure how it will fit into the food system yet?

Bit of a broken recording here, Banks Frybake as well. Absolutely the best, but you pay for it.

After having a outback oven which worked pretty good , we switched over to a reflector oven. I really like our reflector oven, it packs up using hardly any space and weight in the pack, we just bake in a fry pan we already take . You have to have a decent fire pit which quiet often means cleaning out a fire pit and sometimes opening up one side of the pit to set your reflector oven on. I find we usually clean the fire pit anyway to get rid of unburned garbage the usually resides there. Makes me feel better cooking food over a clean pit.
