Why would you need more than a 6 qt. stock pot?

mmdad | Sep 27, 200905:07 AM     24

I know it may sound like a dumb question but, why would I need more than a 6 qt?

I actually don't plan on making stock as I just don't have the interest. I get stock cheap at whole foods anyway so its not really something I plan on doing.

What I do like to do is make soups, stews, chili, pasta, etc.

I am a family of 4, 2 adults 2 small kids.

Where would the need come into play? If you don't make stock do you really need bigger? I can't imagine make more than 6 qts of anything else?

Thanks for the help in advance.
