Stockpots are usually used to hold huge volumes of liquid, but this kitchen tool can also be used for different purposes. This Bayou Classic Stockpot and Steamer is made from commercial-grade aluminum which provides a lightweight constitution to the entire pot. Further, aluminum stock pots are inexpensive. They also offer better conduction of heat so the liquid will boil or cool down faster.
The stockpot can hold up to 160 quarts or 40 gallons of liquid. Aside from using the pot to boil water or make soups and stews, it can also be used as a steamer as well as a fryer. The pot comes packaged with a perforated aluminum basket that can be used to steam vegetables and meats. It can also be used for deep frying many types of food. When frying meats, make sure to add no more than 2/3s of oil to prevent the oil from spilling out of the pan. The aluminum basket can be easily detached so that you can use it as a stockpot for boiling liquid.
The stockpot is designed for outdoor use and is compatible with a propane burner or an indoor stovetop. The lid is also vented to allow the heat to circulate inside the pot. This encourages even cooking.
Since this Bayou Classic stockpot and steamer is made from aluminum, it can easily oxidize when in contact with caustic cleaners. Choose a cleaner that is compatible with the aluminum stock pot to ensure the longevity of the pot.
