    I voted for 5.5 – it’s easily large enough to cook for 4, and once you start going bigger the pots get VERY heavy.  I actually use my smaller 2.5 quart one the most (cooking for 2).

    I have a 5.5 Le Creuset French Oven on my registry.  I have been told that it is the pot that lasts forever and you will use so much!

    We received the 5.5 Le Creuset Oven as a gift.  We have yet to use it but damn, it’s pretty!  All red and bright and so Julia Child!

    I voted oval- it lets you do a bird if you want! I just got my first one this weekend at the outlet store, I am waiting for the weekend to use it. I used to sell them though and everyone was always really happy with them. I think the oval is the most versatile because you can fit longer things in without having a huge pot! I especially like my mom’s recoipe for a whole roasted chicken in one!

    I have a 5.5 quart round and I use it all the time, for everything. Well, not for everything…but that and my LC 10″ pan are the 2 stovetop items that get the most use in my house, I think, especially in the colder months when I make tons of soups and curries.  Only very, very rarely do I wish I had something larger, and then I use a stock pot.  I’ve never wanted something larger that had to be cast iron. LOVE my Le Creusets!
