OK, I tried to help on the 5.5 qt. round with the 4.25 soup pot thread. Now I have a similar dilemma. I'm sitting here staring at a gorgeous 5.5 Dijon round oven and an equally gorgeous 4.5 qt. oval Caribbean oven. I'm trying to justify keeping it by telling myself they are different shapes and a one quart size difference. In my heart though I know that anything I can make in the oval would be just as happy in the 5.5 round.
Other than pure LC lust, and we all know how that goes, is there ANY reason I need the 4.5 oval if I have the 5.5 round. Yes, things fit more snugly, but Molly Stevens herself told me it wouldn't make that much difference. Has anyone found that to be not the case and there really IS a difference with a snugger fit?
Can you guys please help me out here. Can't bring myself to put the Caribbean oven back in the box :-(. I already have a 2.5 qt. round, a 3.5 wide round, a 3.5 buffet casserole, the 5.5 round and the 6.75 wide round. I can also make a smaller chicken in the 3.5 wide, and the buffet casserole, besides a larger one in the 5.5 round. A smaller roast can go in them too.
