Considering this, can you use oval Dutch oven on stove?

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.
