Stockpots are true do-it-all’s when it comes to any liquid-related cooking. They have tall sides which reduce evaporation so thinner stocks and soups maintain their light consistency. Put on the accompanying tempered glass lid to retain even more moisture. These properties also make them great for, boiling pastas, blanching veggies, and prepping foods for canning. With a wide, flat bottom, you can even Saute your soup ingredients right in the pot without having to use an additional pan.
