A 4 qt pot or saucepan for soups and sauces

curiouspeter | Sep 20, 202112:17 AM     31

I got a 6.7 qt Fissler. It is nice and useful but a bit big for everyday use as I cook only for two people. I want to get something in the 4 qt range to make soups or sauces.

Should I get a 20cm Fissler (4.2 qt) soup pot or a 22cm Demeyere (4 qt) saucepan?

A soup pot needs two hands for everything but it can fit inside the fridge if necessary. The saucepan can be handled with one hand if it is relatively empty. It has a helper handle as well.

My other pots/pans are:

- 6.7 qt stockpot
- 3 qt saute pan
- 2 qt saucier
