    I have a Lodge 5 qt and it seems to fit fine. I haven't actually cooked with it on the small yet, but I have given it a test fit. It is about 9 inches diameter at the bottom so I don't think air flow will be a problem.


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I'm with Jason.
    I have a 5 and a 4.5 and both work great in my small.
    Thank you,

    I have a DO similar to those described above. Will be cooking baked beans in it this weekend for the first time. Fit checks on the small seem to be fine.

    I use a 4.5qt enameled kitchenaid the most. I would go with enameled over regular cast iron. If you are going to get a regular cast iron dutch oven I use a #8 in my small.

    If I had it to do over again I think I would get this one.

    The lid doubles as a skillet and it seems like that would be handy...and there is no long handle to cut off.

    I have two of those and I find that I use the lid by itself as much as I use the entire thing. Very versatile :) I paid more money for mine too, that is a geat deal :ohmy:

    I agree. We have this one and it works great, stew in the bottom and corn bread in the top. I also have a tremontina enamelled from wally-world in the 41/2 to 5 qt size also a good fit.
