Always Pan fans, get excited because there is a new kid in town! The Perfect Pot is here and let me name the reasons I love this beautiful piece of cookware. First, and debatably most important, it’s gorgeous. It comes in four stunning hues to complement your kitchen’s vibe. Trust me when I say you will never want to store it – it like stove decor! Another HUGE selling point for me is that it is super lightweight – it’s 4.5 pounds with the lid on and feels like a fraction of the weight of my other pots. Like the Always Pan, The Perfect Pot was designed to replace the need for a lazy susan full of random cookwear. This one pot can boil, crisp, braise, bake, steam, store, pour and more. It comes with a roasting/steaming rack and a notched spoon that fits inside the pot with the lid completely shut. The lid has a built in strainer that aligns with the easy pour spout. These pots make a for a great kitchen upgrade just in time for soup season. If you have a foodie on your holiday list, it would also make a great gift!

I broke my Perfect Pot in with an easy weeknight chicken soup recipe. Let’s be honest, everything I make is easy and usually requires only a handful of ingredients. This particular recipe went over VERY well with my kids and has a great balance of protein and vegetables. Yes, it’s comfort food (hello butter and half and half), but there is spinach in there too so that must count for something! Because I am gluten-free, I didn’t use flour to thicken the soup. If you wanted to add about 1/4 cup flour, you can do that after sautéing the vegetables before adding the broth.
