Help me identify this Le Creuset oven please!

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a Le Creuset oven at a TJ Maxx. It is round and about 12 inches in diameter, like a 9 quart French oven. It is enameled cast iron and came with a lid just like a normal French oven but it's only about 4 inches deep.

When I purchased this piece I was in the market for a French oven and I chose this one for its large diameter and capacity. At the store I thought it seemed rather shallow but it wasn't until I returned home and tried to find it on the Le Creuset website that I realized a 9 quart French oven from Le Creuset is about 7.75 inches deep.

Does anyone know what this shorter version of a French oven might be? I like it but I'm not sure if I'll be keeping it because of how shallow it is.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
