I think we have the 7.5qt round, but I am not sure.  We use it all the time.  It is great for roasting a whole chicken!!  So even for just two people, it is a good size.

the oval fits birds better and the heat distribution is so good that the burner size doesn’t matter. I am a big fan of the oval.

le creuset stainless cookware is good, much better deal than all clad! the best bang for your buck tho is CIA brand cookware. I used to work at a gourmet kitchen store and trust me this stuff is the best!

Also the le creuset stoneware is awesome, i have the mixing bowls and you can heat them in the oven and serve in them and they keep food warm. I have the jumbo bowl and the tiny one and the batter bowl. If you just go for one, go for the batter bowl.

Ooooh thanks for the advice about the oval! I think I’m going to put one of each on there and see what I get, haha!

Also thanks for letting us know about the Le Creuset stainless… I had that on there originally, then got nervous. I have calphalon tri-ply on there now… I just don’t know what to get! Haha

I would go for a round 5.5 and an oval 9.5.  I have a ton of cookware from working in the industry and those are the 2 that we use most often.  Just made a giant pot of chicken and noodles from the Pioneer Woman’s website in the 9.5 tonight as a matter of fact!

I’m really excited to get the braiser – any advice from the hive on which size is best? the 3.5 quart or the 5 quart? There are only two of us, but that will be change in a few years. I appreciate any advice you have to offer!

I like oval dutch ovens the best! They are soooo versatile πŸ™‚

The only think about getting bigger sizes is that the larger the qt size, the heavier the pot! These things weigh 100,000lbs without a bird, potatoes & veggies in it. So, unless you’re the incredible hulk, I’d definitely keep that in mind before registering for a 9.5qt! πŸ™‚ hehe

@laboroflove – YES! lol. we loved that movie too! unfortunately, i’m not the chef in our family, my fiance is, but i’ve wanted a le creuset for the longest time. watching her actually make something using one in julie and julia just made my decision to buy one easier. πŸ™‚

I’ve discovered that our small stainless dutch oven is the best thing I’ve ever used for rice.  We also have a 5.5 quart round, but I could definitely see wanting a larger one in the future.  Mine BARELY fits a double batch of spaghetti sauce.
