A Look at Stainless Steel Stock Pots
A stainless steel stock pot is a type of commercial cookware that is suited for preparing stock or broth or any other soupy dishes like stew and the like. Stock or broth can be prepared using a variety of bases, which may include beef, poultry, and vegetables. Although there are a wide variety of commercial stock pots such as an aluminum stock pot or those made of cast iron, a lot of restaurant owners still prefer using stainless steel stock pots because they are considered the most durable type. They are so durable, in fact, that even used stainless steel stock pots often look like they are still brand new after many years of use. In addition, a stainless steel stock pot is also relatively easy to maintain, which is why it is not uncommon to find a large number of stainless steel stock pots used in busy restaurant kitchens today.
These days, there is a wide selection of stainless steel stock pots that any restaurant owner can choose from. Depending on size and capacity, you can choose from small and large stainless steel stock pots. Choose from a 20 quart stainless steel stock pot, a 24 quart stainless steel stock pot, a 30 quart stainless steel stock pot, or a 60 quart stainless steel stock pot. You can also choose from stainless steel stock pots in six-and-a-half-quart, ten-quart, twelve-quart, sixteen-quart, and twenty-seven-quart capacities.
There is, however, one disadvantage of using stainless steel stock pots, and it is that they do not transfer heat as well as other types of commercial stock pots like, say, those made of aluminum and cast iron.
Cooking with a Stainless Steel Stock Pot
Stainless steel stock pots are great for use when preparing a good base stock for soupy dishes such as stews. This is why these types of cookware are considered very important in a busy restaurant kitchen. Needless to say, a good quality stainless steel stock pot may also determine if your restaurant will be able to produce a regular meal or an unforgettable experience for your diners and customers.
They key to great stock, broth, or soup—aside from the type of stainless steel stock pot used—is taking a sufficient amount of time to cook it. For instance, it takes several hours to simmer and create excellent stock, and you should not hurry when cooking it. Whether you are using top-quality ingredients that you have purchased specifically for creating the stock or maybe using leftovers,reusing ingredients in your kitchen like deboned chicken, leftover beef, liver, or kidney, it is important to allocate as much time as possible when cooking your stock or broth. Your diners or customers will thank you for that while they are enjoying their lunch or dinner.
