Lakeland Hard Anodised Bell Shaped 24cm Stockpot 5 "GREAT!" Roger 26 February 2019 I bought this to replace a cheap stock pot for soup making. It has two snags(?). Firstly it heats up far more quickly than the pot it replaces thus saving money (but making me have to relearn all my timings!) and secondly it makes all my other saucepans look cheap. I really must get some of the other saucepans in this range. Oh and so far as making soup is concerned, which is its purpose, it does an excellent job!
