Looking for 5-quart Stock Pot

Posted by marie26 (My Page) on

I burned my teflon 5 qt. stock pot and need to replace it. I use it for spaghetti sauce, soup, etc. I have larger stock pots for cooking larger batches so this is the size I need to replace.

I liked the teflon finish but am wondering if there is another finish besides aluminum that I can replace it with. I want a pot that will last a long time and easy to clean.

What do you recommend?

I'd recommend this one, of course! (link at bottom of post)

Of all the stainless steel pots around, the Silvinox finish on this one will make it really easy to clean. (They recommend putting it in the dishwasher!! :D ) And it will certainly last a long, long time.

One could argue that the copper disk bottom isn't necessary for a stock pot. The Demeyere Apollo version of this pot, with an aluminum disk bottom, is more like $166.

Better pictures

There are better pictures of it on this page. (The color, though, is the same as everything else on that page. I don't know why their stockpot picture has a green cast to it.)

Those look really nice but are too expensive for my budget right now. Is there anything cheaper?

The "usual suspect" brands would include Paderno (the Italian one, although the Canadian company of the same name is also supposed to be good), Sitram (Profesiere & Catering lines), and Gourmet Standard.

I did some looking around around in those lines, and didn't find any stock pots in the 5 quart neighborhood. (Although I might well have missed something.) The ones I found were bigger. I did however find several saucepots in roughly that capacity. (A saucepot being short, and a stock pot being taller and narrower.)

Thank you for the links. I realized that it's not a stock pot that I'm looking for. It's a Dutch Oven.

RE: Looking for 5-quart Stock Pot

oh ... if it's a dutch oven, I have a Calphalon Contemporary Stainless and love it better than my old cast iron which I can no longer use on my smooth top stove.
it's six quart (or 5 1/2 qt, I forget which).
