Pot of copper.

We won’t blame you if you leave this stock pot out full-time—it’s a treat to look at, not to mention a real workhorse. It’s got an all-copper exterior, so it heats up and cools down faster than fast. Plus, there’s a stainless-steel lining inside that can prep foods of all kinds, then clean up in a snap. (You won’t ever have to re-tin it either, like with tin-lined copper cookware.) Oh, and those handles on the sides and lid? They’re cast iron, which means they’ll stay cool for longer.

This pot’s part of a whole lineup of go-to copper cookware. It’ll work on any stovetop, except for induction. (Looking for an induction-friendly copper pot? You’ll want to meet this wonder.)
