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
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.
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.”
Recommended Chest Freezers
The following are ingredients that are used throughout the soup chapters (chapters 15-22) which may not be easy to find in local stores.
Organic Soy Sauces
Coconut Aminos (Soy and gluten-free alternative)
Red Boat Fish Sauce (my favorite)
Thai Kitchen Fish Sauce (another good choice)
Furikake Japanese Seasoning
Mirin/Rice Cooking Wine
