For casserole dishes, what's the difference in the outcome between slow cooking on stove and oven cooking? Let's say we use either dutch oven or clay pots in both cases.

The oven heat surrounds the dish and I find it cooks more evenly.

This is my thinking also. If you are braising (rather than baking) then stovetop is fine.

Yes...

You don't typically stir a casserole, so there is no way for it to cook evenly on stovetop.

The only clay pot I know to be used on stovetop is a tagine....it must be seasoned like a cast iron frying pan
and then used on low heat.

Ceramic clay pot. Clay pot should also work, no?

No. I have no experience with a tagine, but any other clay pot should be used in the oven, unless you have explicit manufacturer’s instructions to the contrary. You can use clay in the microwave, as well as in a regular oven. But you probably should not use it under the broiler, unless the piece states on bottom it is broiler safe.

You also have to make sure it is actually for cooking! Some are just for decoration and/or serving. Same with molcajetes.
