Burners are too small for Dutch Oven!

Hi SE community! I recently picked up a (red!) Lodge Enameled Dutch Oven and I love it, except that I was trying to fry some chicken the other night and I couldn't get the thing to heat oil past 325. I think the burners on the stove are too small; they were up all the way. They're also all the same size, which just seems crazy to me... Does anyone else have this problem? Anyone have any ideas to remedy?
