Sauce Pot: 18cm/2.1qt vs 20cm/2.9qt

7nkWAR9lAPnmzKRlhYAD | Apr 17, 202009:17 AM     15

I'm considering purchasing a Falk copper sauce pot in the classic range but am having trouble deciding between the following two sizes:

1) 18cm/2.1qt (18.9 cm (7.4 in) W, 8.7 cm (3.4 in) H)
2) 20cm/2.9qt (20.9 cm (8.2 in) W, 10.2 cm (4 in) H)

USE CASE: I hope to use this as a general purpose pot for boiling, blanching, making one-pot dishes, all for 1-2 people.

Originally I thought I was settled on the 20cm size, but I wonder if it is too big for dishes that only call for 500-600ml of water.

I'd appreciate any comments on your usage of pots of equivalent size, especially if you own pots of both sizes.
