Le Creuset dilemma: 3.5 or 5qt buffet/braiser?

herring | Nov 4, 2009 12:50 PM

Hi everyone -- I've found so many of your posts helpful in other decisions, but can use some feedback on what size braiser to buy. I have two round french ovens, 4.5 and 7.25, and just bought the 5 quart braiser ... but once I got it home to my tiny Manhattan kitchen it seemed too big. I cook for two regularly, and entertain a few times a month. I don't cook meat, just fish and vegetables. Any thoughts on which size would be better? (I can exchange it this weekend.) Also, neither size will fit squarely on the center of the burner, if that affects your response. Any and all advice is appreciated!
