BK Carbon Steel Stock Pot, 9QT
This one takes the crown.
Well, here’s a pot that’s fit for royalty. It comes from a maker who was dubbed Royal Predicate by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands in 1951 (yes, it’s true). And that’s not all: It’s enameled carbon steel, which makes it ultra-sturdy, yet surprisingly lightweight. The extra-high sides let you simmer soups and sauces with less mess (looking at you, marinara). Oh, and get this: It’ll shine on any stove, induction included, and even hop in the oven, no problem. It’s dishwasher-friendly, to boot—just in case you need to wash it up quick for your next big batch.
