Stockpot - 8qt
The stockpot is a kitchen essential, a shape that is often synonimous 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 aluminium 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.
The stockpot is usually the largest item of cookware in the kitchen, meaning you can cook lots of food at once. Fill it with water and veggies, meat and bones for delicious homemade stock, then use it in any number of dishes. Or make a flavour base with soffritto, then layer on any vegetables and simmer gently for endless soup options, nourishing and satisfying.
Bring directly to the table to keep your soup warm until serving, then store it right on the stovetop or on a display shelf when not in use.
The essential 5 piece set contains everything you'll need to start crafting delicious everyday meals in Ruffoni Historia tin-lined copper.
Recommended for use on all stovetops, including induction. Use a burner that is similar in diameter to the cookware, never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 230 C (450 F).
To avoid scratching or dulling the polished surface, do not use knives, sharp kitchen tools, corrosive detergents and metal scouring pads.
The silver-plated finial will naturally tarnish over time: use a silver-polishing cloth to restore its shine, or to polish more thoroughly remove from the lid by twisting the special screw. Always hand-wash the lid as dishwasher use would accelerate the silver tarnishing. The cookware is dishwasher-safe.

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.
