Fagor Cookware Soup Pot Review!

As you know, I love cooking, baking, and messing around with new recipes in the kitchen. Soup is one thing I haven't made from scratch very often; it just seemed easier to buy the cans, and have it ready to eat in 5 minutes. When I received a new Soup Pot from Fagor Cookware, though, I knew that a can of soup was not going to work for this-I needed to find a really good recipe for my first time using it! 

The Fagor Soup Pot is part of the Michelle B line, and includes a few recipes for the Soup Pot, from Michelle's recipe card collection. The pot is available in 3 colors, and I chose red since it matches our kitchen perfectly. This is a Cast Iron Lite pot, which means you get the same performance and benefit as cooking with cast iron, at only half the weight! The soup pot is 5 quart, and comes with a glass lid. What I really like about the pot is the oven-to-table ability! That's right; you can use this pot to cook on the stove top or in the oven, but it looks nice enough to sit on the table for serving! 

After much searching, I found a recipe for Broccoli Cheddar Soup that sounded delicious, so that was the first soup I made in this wonderful pot. It turned out great, and after my first experience with making soup at home, I am on the lookout for other recipes to try!

  1. wow this looks like a great soup pot. I make a lot of soups, and would really love to have a cast iron type of pot, but without the weight of full cast iron. And I love that you got red, what a cheerful color, especially if you use it to serve out of!

  2. I have never heard of this type of cast iron kettle. Would be nice to have one that wasn't so heavy.
