Pot Addict Pt 2

Ok, what I want to know is who the hell needs 6 gallons worth of stock pot?. I know, I know! My mom does. The one who stores cardboard boxes in the oven (do you look in an oven for flammables when you preheat it? I didn't either).

For some reason the Nichols/Riley women only know how to cook for 30 or more. My mom only expresses this gene when she wants to cook soup. In spite of the fact it was just our small family of 4, she'd bang around in the kitchen until she dug out the biggest pot I'd ever seen. It was big enough for me to stick my little brother's head and shoulders into and bang with a spoon a-la Bugs Bunny (which is why I think it stayed hidden most of the time... bastard got too big for me to do it by the time I'd figured out where it was). She'd fill it to the brim with soup and then we'd be giving away the stuff for the next six months.

So, yeah, this pot would probably be a good mom-soup pot, even though it's probably as tall as she is. I'm still looking for my 5-qt casserole!

Update: Nope, don't want this particular stock pot. Once we move into the new house I may get one or two wal-mart stock pots though. AFAIK they don't have to be all that fancy.

My, we are a little cranky this morning. I am a Nichols woman,by the way. Will look for a pot for you after the big move or when I come up to visit in a couple of weeks.

The only differences between this pot and my stock pot from Wal-Mart, aside from the size(mine is a 12qt.),the price(I paid $29.95) is the name Iron Clad on the the handles. You are paying for the name not the pot. I suppose something this size would be for commercial use, can't think of anything else unless you wanted to cook an elephant.

scott when you installed my router did you by any chance change the password? it used to be "admin" and now it just refuses to work.
