Making soup is the best kind of kitchen alchemy: You start with a few humble ingredients and wind up with a gem. That’s why we love improvising with Susie Middleton's formula for puréed vegetable soups (issue #97, pp. 62-69). Her recipe calls for a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, we like this enamel one from Lodge. It's available online for $166.15 at

Another pot we like is the All-Clad 4-quart stainless saucepan, available at the for $184.95.

I have the All-Clad and find it perfect for most occasions, and the cover takes very little storage space. Posted: 2:39 pm on October 3rd
