New Lodge Dutch Oven

I just got back a little while ago from Lodge Cast Iron store in South Pittsburg Tennessee. I bought a new 10 Dutch oven from where they are made. It is the deep ten inch. They had a fourteen inch oven. I'm thinking maybe I should of bought the fourteen. What do you think? The fourteen looked really big, but I did not think that I don't have to feel it all the way up with food. I bought my oven to feed the three of us, my wife, son, and myself. The paper work says it will feed four to seven people, but we really like to eat. What is the best one for us?

I agree with phitmein. The oven you bought should be big enough to feed the three of you. I have the shallow 10 inch (among others) and use it mostly for breads, brownies or cakes. I have used it for stew on occasion and it works good for that, but the deeper one would be better.

My 12" can feed six to eight easily. My 14 feeds our Scout troop.

Your pan is similar to this one maybe and that thing is 5 quarts .

You three may be big eaters but I can't even begin to picture yall eating over a gallon of chilli, soup, etc. at one sitting .

Lol. I can't see us eating a gallon at one sitting either. Yes mine is the five gallon oven. So I'm assuming it would be hard to cook small amounts in the fourteen gallon oven. Or would cooking small amounts in the fourteen be alright?

Yes quarts is correct. What was I thinking? Would a fourteen inch oven work properly if I cook small amounts of food, or do you have to fill them up when you cook in them?

You can cook smaller amounts in them but they can over cook quickly. I would stick with the 10 for your family size. My family uses the 14 to feed 10-16 people and it normally has some left over.
