Large Pot

Everyday Food, Volume 31 April 2006

Use It For
- blanching large quantities of vegetables
- cooking pasta and making soups and stocks

Soup, Pasta, or Stock
This 8- to 10-quart pot is for cooking large quantities. It has plenty of room for big batches of soup, and it holds enough water to boil up to 2 pounds of pasta. It's also good for making stocks.

Heavy or Light?
A thin-gauged pot is fine if you're just using it for pasta, but if you plan on making soups and stocks, you're better off with a heavy pot. The handles should be durable in order to stand up to years of heavy lifting.
