HELP! Is it toooo big? 9-quart Le Creuset

lifespan | Jan 9, 2009 02:50 PM

Yipee! I received a 9-quart Le Creuset for my birthday! The one I asked for. Only one problem: Am I deranged to have asked for such a large pot!? There are just two of us! I want my Le Creuset to be a well-used piece. So, here's my question: Is it okay to use the 9-quart pot for a soup or stew or chicken that could just as easily have been cooked in a smaller pot, say a 6- or 7- quart pot. Pros and cons, please... Many thanks. -Molly
