Stock Pot Size For Beginner.

snax | Sep 16, 200807:08 AM     11

Which is s good size stock pot to get started with? I was looking at a 8.5qt, but most people are talking about 12qt and 18qt is a good all rounder size. Is it best to get a big stock pot and only make small amounts of stock, or would something like an 8 qt stock pot be sufficient to get started?

Also I understand that I could pick up a pot with no frills for for $50 give or take. But I am happy to spend more on a pot that is fully clad etc if it has long term benefits.

Any advice?
