Yes, the DCB is twice as much...but I easily use mine three times more than the rectangle baker.
I haven't made brownies in the DCB...which is about the only thing that I can think that you couldn't do in the DCB since you don't have to use the lid if you don't need it. Well, I guess a sheet cake, too...
I use the DCB weekly when home or traveling. I have not used the rectangle baker in months. There are only two of us, and we have had two couples over for the Mexican Lasagna, with some to spare with the DCB. I have roasted a 9 to 10 lb. roaster chicken
in the DCB, and that would serve at least 8 people with leftovers for a pot of soup. I agree that the size of her family would be the determining factor.
I go back in time to when we had the dome lid for the rectangle baker (2004 and 2005). I may have used it all total ten times. So that tells you something. The DCB is well worth the price, and even better when discounted. It was a winner with our son's family as a Christmas gift. They use it for dinner for 6 to 7 people, several times a week.
