Staub Wide Cocotte vs Normal Cocotte

Tofucube | Apr 8, 2013 05:28 PM

I've been thinking about getting a Staub Cocotte for awhile and I was recently noticing that the Wide Cocotte is typically cheaper than a normal cocotte of roughly equal capacity.

for example the Staub 6 quart wide dutch oven is 200 dollars

while the Staub 5.5 quart is 259 dollars

Does anyone know if there is a good reason why I shouldn't save 60 bucks and get the wide cocotte over the normal? I didn't notice any clear difference in quality between the two when I compared them at the store. the only difference in cooking quality I could think of is that liquids in the wide cocotte might evaporate more quickly. Anyone have any experience or thoughts?
