Stock pots have a tall, narrow shape to them with straight sides and a round base. The tall and narrow shape allows liquids to bubble up through the food, extracting maximum flavor. Heat is spread evenly through the stockpot's walls and base. When purchasing a stockpot, it is important to choose a pot that is large enough to fit your demand. At Jean's Restaurant Supply, we have stock pots from 6 quarts to 140 quarts. Jean's has all of your kitchen supply needs.
