Stockpot - 8qt
The stockpot is a kitchen essential, a shape that is often synonymous with "cookware" itself: perfect for boiling and simmering meat, vegetables, and grains into delicious minestrone, soups, and stocks.
Crafted in clad stainless steel, an innovative material that combines the optimal heat conductivity of an aluminum core with the great ease of use of mirror-polished stainless steel. The first hand-hammered stainless steel cookware, for a beauty that lasts, this Opus Prima Stockpot also features a delicately decorated stainless steel handle, unique serial number, and is crowned with a hand-cast bronze finial in the shape of a pepper, cucumber, and string bean that is plated in silver by our partner silversmiths in Milan.
Made in Italy.

Ideas For Use
Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Stockpot
Stockpots are approximately as tall as they are wide: a clever proportion that maximizes their capacity, meaning you can cook plenty of food at once.
Fill with water and any veggies found wondering at the back of the fridge for a light and tasty homemade vegetable stock, or add meat and bones for delicious homemade stock which can be used in any number of dishes (our favorite: risotto!). Alternatively, make a flavor base with soffritto, then layer on your favorite seasonal vegetables and simmer gently for endless soup options, nourishing and satisfying. The stockpot can also be used to gently simmer grains or prepare oatmeal for breakfast, or take a page out of all nonnas' book and mix vegetables, legumes and short pasta for a nourishing minestrone that the whole family will enjoy.
Bring directly to the table to keep your soup warm until serving and elevate any simple supper to special occasion. Store your stockpot right on the stovetop or on a display shelf when not in use to enjoy its warm shine every time you walk into your kitchen.
