Ok, so I use my 6qt enameled cast iron dutch oven all the time. But it's actually not that huge for cooking for a big group.
Do you use a bigger one? Or are they just too heavy at 7-8-9 qts?
What do you cook in if you're braising for a crowd?
I do have bigger stainless steel pots, but they're pretty much stovetop only. But does an 8 qt stainless steel pot make more sense?
