What to look for when choosing the best large pot?
There are many materials that produce a large pot such as stainless steel, copper, aluminum, ceramic, etc. Although aluminum is still used for some larger pot (it good at spreading heat) but we don’t commend them.
Aluminum will react with some kind of food and alter the taste of food when it overheated. It may harm to your health.
On the other hand, stainless steel has a reasonable price, nonreactive with food, lightweight, durable and easily acceptable for a large pot.
But the weakness of stainless steel is poor conductor, so it usually comes with a thick base of copper or aluminum.
