If you could request one item from Staub to begin a collection, what would it be? For my fiancee.. I'm considering the 4qt over the 5.75qt (mainly because of the color - aubergine). Is this a mistake?The 5.75qt is in blue, and my fiancee's favorite color is purple.
I think the larger one would be much more versatile. 4 qt isn't that big for many things good to cook in a heavy pan.
Both colors are lovely. Purple is also my favorite color but I am glad I have the larger size.
It is just two of us but I like the larger one for stews, braising, soups, etc.
Hi there I actually own both, the small one in blue and large in aubergine. Go with your get feeling, the blue is a beautiful colour but purple is also my fave.
Colour aside the larger pot would probably see more use, at least in my house.
My 5.75 gets alot of use...I love braising and I like the extra room for browning and stirring.
My meals are usually for 2 people and I make enough for the next day for reheating.
I would definitely go for the larger pot. My 4 qt. just doesn't get the use. The blue, which I have, is beautiful and because I like color in a kitchen I've purchased other colors for my other pots.
Big mistake, IMO. The 5.5 is the most versatile and ideal size for most uses. I get the thing about color, but ultimately, this is a cooking tool, and you will find yourself with overflow or limited uses for the smaller one.
