Curious. Have you ever encountered a recipe that requires an 8 quart Dutch Oven?
I have a new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo's "Ready or Not" and was a bit blown away that a recipe required it. I see it as a "nice to have" item, not something to expect home cooks to own.

And I have been thinking about it I want an 8 quart, and I think I would rather have two 5.5 quarts. They store better.
