How to choose a stock pot
• To choose the best pot for your kitchen, look at the size first. Capacities may range from 8 litres all the way up to 30 litres or higher for commercial settings.
• The most common types of materials used for pasta or stock pots is stainless steel and anodised aluminum. aluminum conducts heat better than stainless steel, but when not anodised it can react with acidic foods like tomatoes.
• Additional features to look for include non-stick surfaces, sturdy handles, and spigots. A spigot located on the lower half of the pot allows you to drain the liquids, saving you the task of doing this with a ladle.
