8 qt. round Dutch oven help
My beloved Dutch oven just bit the dust. The 5 ply bottom delaminated. The thing that was great about it was the bottom diameter was only 8 1/2 in., and my largest cooktop burner is only 8 inches, so it was a perfect fit. The pot flared out from the base, so even though it had a small footprint, it had good volume.
Now I'm shopping for round Dutch ovens, but the dimensions are unclear. Many claim to be 12 inches wide, but I think that might include the handles.
Does anybody have an 8 qt. Dutch oven, and if so, what is the bottom diameter? I'd prefer a heavy pot, either cast iron or heavy stainless.
Thanks in advance!
