I know there are lots of options out there, but I would like to hear from some of you who have a decent stock/soup pot that distributes the heat evenly on the stovetop. One of the kids will be buying this, so it would be nice if it were somewhere in $50 price range. Not sure if that's too low, but the kids aren't made of money. If it's a lot more, I'll just buy it for myself after Christmas and ask for more sox & underwear.
Gosh, I am really hard to buy for...
Mine is Invitations Professional... It's a great stockpot. Stainless with a heavy disk bottom that really spreads the heat and simmers beautifully on my glasstop range. I don't know exactly what it cost, but I doubt it was more that $30-$40... It was a Christmas gift from my mother 2 or 3 years ago, and no way that she would spend more than that.
