Giveaway: Anolon Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel 4-Quart Casserole

Anolon Nouvelle Cuisine 4-Quart Casserole

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect small batch jam pot. Something sturdy (but not enormous), non-reactive and with a low, wide profile for quick evaporation. It needs to function on an induction cooktop, conduct heat evenly and be nice to look at. I have a couple vintage enameled cast iron pots that checks most of my boxes, but they are so heavy that I’m always reluctant to wrestle one off the shelf for a quick preserve.

However, a new pot came into my life a couple months ago and we’ve been making sweet, sweet jam (as well as sauces, chutneys and braises) together ever since. My small batch pot quest may indeed be over. The object of my cookware affection? The Anolon Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel 4-Quart Casserole.

The stainless steel interior means that it will never leach a metallic flavor into my preserves and if I happen to burn something (it happens to the best of us), I can scrub away without worrying that I’m doing damage to the surface (a concern with the enameled pots). It’s got a thick copper disc at the bottom, which makes for good heat conduction and a pretty patina to boot.

I’m also a big fan of the shape of this pot (you don’t realize how hard it is to find affordable, good quality pots that are low and wide until you start shopping). The shallow depth means you get lots of surface area, which in turns promotes evaporation. Cooking the water out of the fruit effectively is a vital part of making jams, fruit butters, chutneys and jellies. Having a pot that aids that effort instead of fighting it makes for a better product every time.

    Marisa, so glad to have discovered your blog via thekitchn.com … love it! Thanks for offering this beautiful Anolon giveaway. The Anolon Nouvelle Copper Stainless 4-Quart Casserole would fill a void in my cookware. It’s excellent quality, copper base and wide/low shape would welcome my fried apples, casseroles & first attempt at making the black raspberry preserves that I love so much.
