Sauce Pots (often also called Soup Pots) are what we picture when we are thinking of a "pot." They are larger cookware, designed for use on the stove top, with vertical sides the same height as their diameter. Sauce Pots are used for simmering or boiling larger quantities of ingredients. They generally have two short sturdy handles so that they can be lifted with two hands.


Sauce Pots and Saucepans are distinguished by volume (usually 1–8 L) and though they may look like Dutch Ovens they do not have the same heating ability.
