Which Le Creuset/Staub pieces for registry?

lcole24 | Oct 14, 2010 10:17 AM

I am registering for my wedding and want to get the right Dutch Ovens for my collection. I have a 5.5 qt Emile Henry in red that I've been using for more than 5 years and I love it. I make briskets, soups, stews and even a pork shoulder once. The bottom tends to burn a bit on the stove so I may give it to my SIL when the new pieces come in.

I am debating between Le Creuset and Staub, but I'll spare you that debate as there have been plenty of threads already. Ultimately since the reviews of both seem great and we like both, I think we're going to get a couple of each (thinking 3 total) and would like to know what sizes you would recommend? We are thinking:

- StaubI 5 3/4 QT Coq au Vin oval in blue
- a round to replace my 5.5 (same size? larger/smaller?)
- a very large DO for multiple briskets (round or oval? what size?)
- should we get one that's smaller??
