Some good friends bought a house and I want to give them a housewarming gift for their kitchen. They love to cook and appreciate good quality goods, but I don't know what they have so I don't want it to be too specialized.
I was thinking of this Le Creuset:
I'm not sure if it will be that useful. I love my 5.5qt one, but it seems like the 3.5qt oval is used for different things. Any suggestions for a nice cookware gift or feedback on the utility of the french oven would be much appreciated!
