If you are mulling over which types of pots youíll need to begin a basic cookware collection, donít overlook a large (at least 8 quarts) stockpot. Since youíll probably be using it mainly to boil water for pasta, or perhaps for blanching vegetables, this is one case in which you donít want a heavy-feel. You want to easily lift the pot when itís full. If you plan on making large quantities of soup or stock with it, choose one made from good quality mid-weight anodized aluminum. Buy the cheapest, lightest stockpot you can find if youíre only going to be using it to boil water for pasta.
