Stock pots or boiling pots are large volume pans suitable for boiling, making soups, making stock and much more. They are a great kitchen workhorse and need to be durable and flexible for a range of kitchen prep jobs.
Stock pots tend to be large with high sides for containing hot liquids in a safe and secure way. The stock pot is one of the most commonly used kitchen items across the world, used for making stocks and broths that are the base flavour for many more complex meals coming out of the kitchen.
The design has a wide bottom for absorbing the heat and distributing it evenly over a large volume. The sides are straight with a wide opening that is usually the total diameter of the pot. This helps you to put large amounts of ingredients in the pot without spillage.
The stock pot or boiling pot is one of the building blocks of good cooking. Stocks or broths are made using water and a variety of other ingredients including vegetables, meat, bones and more. Simmered for hours, these break down and impart flavour to the liquid. This is then reduced to concentrate more flavour into the stock or broth. Finally, this liquid is then used as the basis of more refined sources, soups, gravies and more.
