6 Alternative Uses For An Old Stock Pot

Giant stock pots are great for more than just Sunday soup! Here are 6 ideas to make the most out of this kitchen classic once their simmering days have drawn to an end.

Bread Bin: Our family has been doing this for as long as I can remember; they are anti-storing-bread-in-the-microwave kind of folk.

Preserving: Big stock pots are great for boiling jars of jam, pickled veggies and the like.

Cat Food/Litter Storage: A more attractive option than the Rubbermaid alternative!

Garbage Can: Won’t absorb odors, good capacity, comes with a lid!

Planter Pot: Great for hiding the ugly plastic pots that Tropicals typically come in.

Impromptu Bucket: For soaking tired feet with Epsom salts, mopping the floor, whatever is typically on your bucket list.
