Round vs. Oval Stewpots

So for being at my work for 10 years now, I've been given a service award booklet to choose from. Many different items and I settled on a stewpot. Which is really the same as a dutch oven from what I have read. I've never had a dutch oven/stewpot so it'd be neat to use.

The description says round, but the actual stewpot in the catalogue is oval. To me, round makes perfect sense since oven burners are round. But does it really matter if the stewpot is round or oval?
