I've decided I absolutely hate the soup pot I made soup in yesterday. It taints the soup with a metal taste. I only notice it the next day as I keep the soup in the pan, but of course it must be leeching metal into the meal and then - boggan awful soup. It's really unfair. Had enough. I'll now save up to buy the 8 quart Le Creuset pot instead. Annoyingly, it's available from the USA amazon, but not here in the UK. Le Ceueset is a French company. I'm closer to France than America and yet I have to go farther to get the damned pan. Insane. There is an outlet nearby, I may go try my bartering skills there. Cash payments often turn up a discount.
Now, excuse me while I flush the remainder of what was a really nice soup down the pan.
