My wife and I use an 8" for the two of us on camping trips. A 10" makes a good deep cobbler. I go by the size of the food I am gonna cook and use the proper pot for that meal. Hope this helps.

opinions I am sure all you winter surfers will have one.
I have 2 10" Dutch Oven's – like to make soup in one and bread in the other to serve with friends. But I think I would like to get a smaller one do I go 1 quart (QT) or 2 QT to make smaller meals for just two. Is the 1 QT to small? What do you make in your 1 QT? I lean toward the 2 QT and am making up my Christmas list. If I promise to cook (& clean) in it it will appear under the tree!
Another topic do you nest (place one DO inside another) for storage and traveling?
Thanks – no wrong opinions just some may be better. Hope to attend (as a looker) the National Dutch Oven gathering.
