Any good cook knows stocks are foundational in creating everything from the simplest dishes to the most complex meals. Critically important in the tried and true tradition of French cooking, stocks can be used in any number of things from stews, porridge, boiled foods, steamed food and, of course, stews. This is why no kitchen is truly complete without a good stock pot.
Stock pots are traditionally cylindrical in shape, as the tall and narrow profile keeps more liquid inside the vessel over longer periods of time. The slow evaporation of liquid allows for those dense and brothy-like textures to develop Despite their size, they’re also surprisingly light making them easy to move around once you’re done making your stock.
