New Staub--am I about to buy the wrong size?

blue room | Oct 22, 2006 12:39 AM

Here's my plan: instead of one 4 qt. oven, I buy two 2 qt. ovens.
I save $25. Since I cook for just two, I can make 2 completely different dinners, avoiding SAME leftovers for days. (One for freezing.) You should not leave a lot of room in these pots, so even when using just one at a time, dinner is being cooked right. Of course, I can fill both pots with the same thing too, if I want a lot of the same dish. I checked, 2 thighs, 2 drumsticks, and 2 breasts fit (snugly!) into a 2 quart pot. That should cook down into fall-apart goodness, yes? The small size is easier to handle for washing. They're awfully cute, AND you get to pick 2 colors, not just one! Any reason you can think of not to do this? These are the Staub Cocotte round ovens.
An online place called Metro Kitchen sells these, NO shipping charges. 2 qt. is 70.00, 4 qt. is 165.00
