Tips for Choosing a Stock Pot

Equip your kitchen with a stock pot, which is a large cooking pot that's good for preparing soups, stews, pasta and many other dishes. Williams Sonoma has an array of multipot options, making it easy to find one that works for your culinary needs. Whether you prefer a Staub stock pot or another brand such as Ruffoni or Calphalon, there's something in the selection to suit you.

Why Consider an All-Clad Stock Pot?

If you're looking for a durable, high-quality stock pot, All-Clad may be the right choice. The All-Clad collection of cookware is exclusive to Williams Sonoma and offers plenty of advantages for the home chef. Here are just some of the features you'll enjoy with an All-Clad stock pot:

  • These pots are crafted from professional-grade stainless steel. The brushed exteriors add a stylish gleam to your kitchen, while five bonded layers heat quickly and evenly for excellent results.
  • They come in several sizes ranging from small to large. The small pots are good for preparing smaller portions of soups and other foods, while the large pots work well for boiling whole chickens and cuts of beef.
  • These pots have wide bottoms and high sides, so they're ideal for browning meats and simmering large quantities of liquids. Some are even marked on the inside with measurement guidelines. The riveted handles are ergonomically designed for a comfortable grip.
  • Steamer inserts let you prepare rice, shrimp, vegetables and other steamed foods, while a double boiler insert is good for preparing delicate dishes like butter sauces and custards.
  • If you want coordinated cookware pieces, consider an All-Clad cookware set. These sets come in various sizes to meet your cooking needs. A saucepan set makes a great accompaniment to your cooking pot.

Cooking Pot Accessories

When shopping for a new pot, you may also want some accessories to go with it. Besides pot inserts, some useful accessories include cooking utensils such as spatulas and large spoons. Potholders or oven mitts are good to have because they protect your hands; you might also want a set of dish towels for washing your cooking pot.

Shop the stock pot selection at Williams Sonoma to find All-Clad stock pots and an array of other high-quality pieces. There's also everything else you need for a well-stocked kitchen and dining room, including dinnerware, barware and kitchen linens.
