Le Creuset 4-1/2-Quart Soup Pot
This is the best pot—the best shape see how the sides slope out? This is good, you can see what you are cooking. Follow the Goldilocks principle—you don't want a pot to bog or to small. This one is just right! Also, it is enameled cast iron. Cast iron distributes heat very evenly and well, enameled means easy cleaning! This pot goes right from stovetop to oven to table. It is costly but, like the Prada of Knives, it lasts your life so you buy it one time. Plus, it looks really sexy.
Sloped sides make for easy stirring and better distribution of heat. Just another great addition to your -- or anyone's -- Le Creuset collection (and one of the few pans I *don't* have).
