When I look at a recipe, it says medium saucepan, small saucepan, large saucepan, large dutch oven, or no specified size at all, etc. maybe its just me, but it is not intuitive what this means. is there a guide(general) to choosing the adequate size for a dish? when i look at the amount of water and other ingredients where do i start? at least I know that if a pot is too big or too small it may affect the outcome of the dish..
your kind responses will also help me buy the appropriate size in cookware for the amounts that i cook.
