Saucepot: Two Handled Pot with Straight Sides and a Lid

A saucepot is a pot with two handles and deep, straight sides. Not as large as a stock pot, it is one of the most used pan in the kitchen.

It can be used for boiling pasta, blanching vegetables, making soups and stews, creating sauces and stocks, and reheating large portions of liquids. Saucepots are also known by other names: (Dutch) ovens, casseroles, brazier (with higher sides), marmites (or low marmites), or a short stockpot.

If purchasing a saucepot for the first time, choose one that is heavy as you’ll want it to survive many, many uses. A good fitting lid helps cook foods slowly and keep in moisture.
