Choosing the Right Braiser Size
Anyone have any thoughts on how to choose an appropriate braiser size? I'm thinking of getting either a 3.2 L or 4.7 L le creuset enameled cast iron braiser, but I'm torn between the two sizes.
I have a household of 2 (but like having 1-2 guests over occasionally). My stove is unfortunately electric, and I'm worried that 4.7L will be too big for it to sear ingredients evenly. (Certainly the pan would go well beyond the largest burner.)
Other than quantity, what kind of added versatility would the 4.7 L braiser have over the 3.2 L? (For example, would the 3.2 L be too small to roast a small chicken and some vegetables in?)
Any other thoughts/experiences?
