The word dutch oven where does it come from?

chuckwagon oven in campfireThere are a few suggestions where it comes from, but the 2 most likely ones are:
The early dutch traders and salesmen who were selling these kind of cooking pots gave them the name “Dutch Oven”
Other people stick to the story that the Dutch settlers in Pennsylvania who used these pots are responsible for the name.
The old Dutch oven that we see in the old westerns had a flat bottom and three legs to keep it above the flames of the campfire.
This type of Dutch oven is still made by the Lodge manufacturing company and the call it a “Camp Oven”.
There are also people who call it a chuck-wagon, or cowboy dutch oven.

Here is a video about what to look for when buying a Dutch oven. I do not agree with this lady that the brand she promotes is the best brand, but it is a good brand. Many other brands have the same qualifications she is looking for in a Dutch oven.
