What type of pot is best for making soup?
People often ask what pot they should use to make soup, and there are reports that metallic pots may release chemicals and affect your health if you frequent use those to make soup? Traditionally speaking, the best pot for soup is the one made with the finest ingredient which is casserole. But a lot of people nowadays use induction cooktops and casseroles will not work with those. In that case, try to use high quality cast iron pots with an enamel finish. They have great heat insulation and can lock in the flavor to make great tasting soup. Stainless steel is also a decent choice for pots.
Casseroles- suitable for slow cooking to keep soup fresh and tasty, but be sure to buy those made with high quality materials.
Cast iron pots with enamel finish- great heat insulation and ability to lock in flavors. Helps to keep the original flavor of ingredients and cooking time is shorter.
Stainless steel- larger capacity but soup may be more bland in taste.
