Heavy Bottomed pan options

Noork85 | Jul 15, 2012 02:29 AM

Hello all,

Im making buttercrunch toffee and the recipe calls for a heavy bottomed pan. Im not a major cook so i have no such thing in my little collection of cookware (extremely limited)). Im a little tight on the budget, cant afford to spend a fortune on a pot, as much as im dying to. But i also need to make that toffee today. So, what are my options? I plan on runnng to bed bath and beyond to grab the pot. Will The Simply Calphalon Non-Stick 7-Quart Dutch Oven do? Its price at $50, will be $40 after my coupon.

All i really need is a 2.5 liter pot for the toffee, but im thinking this caphalon pot will also come in handy for my mom. So what do u guys think? Any suggestions for anything cheaper that will get the job of making a buttercrunch toffee done?


ETA: since a heavy bottomed pan is supposed to be made of cast-iron (right?) will Emerilware™ 6-Quart Cast Iron Covered Dutch Oven do? I noticed the calphalon isnt cast-iron but hard anodized Aluminum exterior.
