Which Le Creuset Dutch oven?

stonefruit | Dec 27, 200604:10 AM     35

I received an oval 5-quart Le Creuset oven for Christmas. This is my only piece of Le Creuset, and I want to make sure I have the right one. I'm concerned that a round shape might be more useful.

Anyone want to comment on both the best shape and also most useful size? (Should I switch it for a similarly sized round pot, or for something bigger?) There are two of us in our household, and while we like to entertain, we don't regularly cook for an army.

Thanks in advance for feedback. Here's a link to a page with a bunch of different options:
