I don't have a premise. I was just wondering if it did make a difference.

My sincere apologies. I apparently had you confused with Addie, who'd made a point about the bottom of a pot exactly fitting the size of the burner.

As to that low Dutch oven, had I merely come across it, with no discussion, I'd have likely just called it a casserole.
