    Default Potjie size?

    We want to buy a pooitjie for camp cooking - two adults.
    Any recommendations on the best size to go for?
    No. 1 looks right. Bigger or smaller?

    Ons het 'n no 2 - net as ek en Sarel kamp - maar, kan vir 2 ekstra mense nog bysit. Ek is nie mal oor 'n pot wat te klein is nie.

    Maar het ook 'n no 4 vir ons gesin - dit kan tot 12 mense kos gee.

    Dus, vir ons (my en Sarel) is die no 2 lekker - maar, jy sal weet wat pas vir jul gesin -

    Ons het n plat bodem pot vir kamp wat min plek vat. Maar soos Elize se, jy sal moet kyk wat vir jou werk.

    No.2 is too small.

    You can still cook for 2 people in a number 3, but you can cook for 8 people in it too.

    It has a better heat spread, and when you need to get a kilo of fresh black mussel for 4 into it, it takes it as well.

    If you buy a no. 2 you'll regret it in a year, or a month, but a no.3 is just right...

    I still manage to cook to much in a no2 even after I counted so many segments of ox tail per me and son, so even in a smaller pot you can still have left over.

    I think a size 3 is better. Rather a little bigger than to small. If you have guests, you can at least use it.

    For two people, a 2 is just fine!

    Thanks everyone for your views.
    I have a No. 2 & we'll give that a go for the two of us.
    Potjie seems to be not just the meal, but thereafter (padkos).

    I guess I'm the wrong guy to ask then. I'm a firm believer in "bigger is better"

    I have a 2 and a 3. Find that I use the 3 more often. It is just more comfortable... That is for food for anywhere between two to eight.

    Bigger is always better . I will use the no 6 Falkirk even if only for 2 people
    Your pot will never be to big .
