Braiser/casserole Color and size

I currently own a 5.5 Dutch oven in Cerise. I’ve been looking around at the braiser or buffet casserole to use as more of an every day. I can’t decide between the two options and then if I need the 3.5qt or 5. We are a 3
Person household at the moment.

Also, I want to try a new color besides cerise. I bought a staub braiser a week ago in white. I used it once and the exterior bottom already stained. I don’t know what to use to get it out. I’m going to return it. I love the idea of a white braiser but wondering if white will stain just the same as the staub did.

    For a family of 3, I would get a 5qt. I’m a family of two that likes to cook with leftovers in mind and 5qt is my preference.

    For getting the stains out, try rubbing a paste of baking soda and water in your pan. That may take out any discoloration.

    Btw, I don’t use my braiser for braising in the oven. That’s not the sort of cooking I do. I use it for sautéing and frying veggies, meats, and meat substitutes. I recently bought a LC paella pan, and I think it is my new favorite for such things. It cleans up like a dream. The only complaint I have is with the cheap stove in the house I just moved into. It doesn’t have extra large burners, so it’s hard to get an even heat on the paella pan since it’s so big. I’ll get a new oven soon because this stove is not worthy of someone who likes to cook.
