Size of Le Creuset French Oven to get?
I've been thinking about purchasing a Le Creuset French Oven and wonder which size to get.
I like to cook Soups and Stews for 4 people.
Is a 5 1/2, 7 1/4 or 9 quart the way to go? The poor
gal at Williams-Sonoma didn't have a clue; probably seasonal help. The best she could do was, "they come in yellow and are heavy."
I'm thinking of picking one on my next visit to the USA.
Do it, once you've figured out sizing. Hell's more likely to freeze over before GTA retailers realign pricing to reflect exchange reality. You'll get the size and colour you want plus reasonable assurance of "first" quality. Home Sense and Winners are limited in selection and don't always seem to sell anything but "seconds." Go shopping for size and colour at W-S or wherever and buy from the States.
Thanks everyone. Looks like the 5.5 quart is a good size.
I'm from the USA but currently live in Toronto.
Any suggestions where to find a good price on a LC in Canada? I'm finding it is about 30% cheaper to buy it in the USA.
I would definitely recommend the 7.25 at a minimum. I think you'll appreciate the larger capacity. It's also a great size for a whole chicken.
