Hi Everyone! I've recently discovered a LOVE for making soups! The soup pot I've been using is a 5QT cheapie I bought when I got my first apartment, and I'm ready for an upgrade. Anyone have any recommendations for an AMAZING soup pot that I'll adore???

If I am making a soup that involves sautaing onions/veggies or browning sausage or something first, I usually use a dutch oven type pot (wider than it is tall). If I am making a "dump and simmer" type soup, I use a stock pot. All my pots are Calphalon. Don't know if it helps or not, but I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents FWIW!
Oh, and one more thing: if its a soup (or lindrusso's marinara) that needs to simmer for a while, I like pots with glass lids so you can peek in without opening the lid to make sure its a low simmer and not a rolling boil.

I love my LeCrueset for soups. They are expensive, and can be used to braise and seer meats, and can also go right into your oven. I use this pot for so many things and it cleans up really well. You will never NEED to buy another, however I own serveral in different sizes and colors.

I also love to use my Le Creuest pot for soups. I resisted buying one until this past year, and now I wonder why I waited so long. Mine is 7 3/4qt. It is a heavy pot, but I love cooking in it. I also have an 8qt. All Clad stainless steel stockpot that I use frequently for soups.

Thanks for the input. I've been looking really hard at the leCruset pots, and think I should go for it. They are beautiful, my only concern was that the inside enamel would somehow wear off, but I guess that's not true. I've seen them fairly often at Winners(Canadian version of TJMaxx), so I'll have to keep my eyes open for the 7QT one.
