Hestan Probond Forged Stainless Steel Stock Pot with Lid, 8QT
We’re big on this pot.
Julia Child always said to start with a larger pot than you think you need—and we think this one’s just the ticket. Its 8-quart size means it’s game for larger batches of soup, stock, pasta...the works. And wait till you hear what it’s made of: It’s cold-forged, triple-bonded stainless steel, with a layer of aluminum inside for extra-quick and even heating. The thicker base and streamlined sides make it lightweight yet oh-so durable. And the rim? It’s flared so it’ll get pouring without a drip in sight. When its work is done, you can count on no-fuss cleanup thanks to the flush rivets inside. Top it all off with the fact that it’s handcrafted in Italy, and you’re looking at your next stovetop star.
