help me buy a dutch oven

I am looking to buy a dutch oven but don't know which one or how big to go. I would love to make one pot meals (soups, stews, pot roasts) for my small family (3 of us) but don't want to go too small in case I have 6 or 8 people over for dinner. Should I buy 2, one for family meals, one for entertaining? Maybe one for now and think about a second later on since I don't entertain all that much? I have a smooth glass top stove, GE profile electric range. I know Le Creuset is pricey but will spend the money if it's really THAT good. I have a small Le Creuset enamel/cast iron grill pan which I am enjoying, but still learning how to use. I put in a little olive oil last night to grill a chicken breast and no grill marks! The pan is new (only used it a few times) and had wonderful grill marks without the oil but food sticks like crazy. Any way, I digress. Sorry. Just need help for now with size and brand for a dutch oven. Thanks!
