Cooking Pots encompass a variety of cookware that helps with food preparation and is intentionally used for liquid cooking like stewing, stocking, brewing, or boiling. Cooking Pots typically have high and straight sides with a wide bottom surface that can hold large quantities of food. Cooking Pots are typically round and can have a long thin handle or multiple handles to prevent the user from the heat. Cooking Pots are made from a variety of materials paired with different coating finishes. They are available in different sizes and colors to suit the needs of the user.
A good cooking pot is typically made of heavy-gauge materials that help heat food more evenly and have fast heat flow. Good cooking pots also have handles and a lid that is sturdy, heatproof, and secure. A good cooking pot should also feel comfortable to the user while cooking.
Big cooking pots are called stock pots because they are large deep pots with a flat bottom. Stockpots are typically used for cooking liquid foods that do not need to be close to the heating source. Users can use stockpots to sauté ingredients and then add liquids to make stocks, soups, or stews.
It takes about 8 to 10 minutes to boil about 4 cups or 1 liter of water depending on the type of stove. Typically, 1 cup of water boils in 2 minutes depending on the type of heat source. Water can be boiled faster through the use of an electric kettle or microwave.
