Considering this, can you use oval Dutch oven on stove?
Just like you said. The oval one can better accommodate a whole chicken or a large piece of meat. If you are into slow cooking a whole chicken as opposed to chopped chicken pieces, then an oval has the advantages. The round one fits on the stove better and produce a more even heating surface.
Also, which Dutch oven should I buy? The Best Dutch Oven

- Also great. Cuisinart CI670-30CR Chef's Classic Enameled Cast Iron 7-Quart Round Covered Casserole. Larger pot, smaller handles.
- Also great. Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron 5½-Quart Round French Oven. Heirloom quality.
In this regard, do I really need a Dutch oven?
The Dutch oven is a magical piece of cookware, and I think every home cook should own one. A bare Dutch oven needs to be well-seasoned regularly just like other cast-iron cookware for optimal use. Many pots on the market now have an enamel coating that allows you to use the pot immediately without seasoning.
Is a Le Creuset Dutch oven worth it?
Le Creuset cookware is pricey, but its cast iron and stoneware pieces can last for years, if not decades — here's why they're worth the investment. Le Creuset is known for its beautiful, well-crafted, and versatile enamel Dutch ovens. Its cookware is expensive, but not without reason.
