Basic Broth and Soup Kitchen Tools

Recommended Stock Pots

Update International Stainless Steel Stockpots – I love these for their affordability and simplicity.

Le Creuset Enamel On Steel Stockpots – A little pricier but still great quality and lots of color choices.


Recommended Slow Cookers

Cuisinart MSC-600 3-In-1 Programmabe Slow Cooker – a great choice for setting the temperature for a nice, slow simmer.

Hamilton Beach 8 Quart Slow Cooker – another good choice for the larger-than-normal slow cooker size.


Recommended Pressure Cooker

Instant Pot Programmable Pressure Cooker

Using a pressure cooker to make homemade bone broth has become popular lately because they reduce the simmering time but supposedly still preserves the nutrient value.  Food Renegade wrote a great post about the health benefits of using a pressure cooker.

Recommended Immersion Blender

Cuisinart Immersion Blender – a handheld blender for pureeing soups right in the pot.

Recommended Strainers

Ultra Fine 100% Cotton Cheesecloth
Very Fine Mesh Strainer 6-3/4-Inch

Bouillon Fine Mesh Strainer
– These are commonly used in restaurant and not typically found in home kitchens.  However, if you gravitate to making larger batches of broth, it’s wider mouth and sturdier construction means you can strain quantities at once.   As one Amazon reviewer said, “”If there was a strainer on the space shuttle, this would be it.”

Storage Containers

Kerr wide mouth glass quart jars (case of 12)
Other Types of Glass Storage Containers

Recommended Chest Freezers

GE 5.0 Cubic Ft. Chest Freezer – this is the model I have
Midea 3.5 Cubic Ft Chest Freezer – slightly smaller and cheaper
