In 1851, Hendrik Berk in Kampen (BK) began to design milk churns, pots, pans and cooking utensils commissioned by businesses and individuals. Forty years later, he was able to apply an enamel protective layer to his sheet metal pans and canisters, laying the foundation for BK, the company that is still providing the Dutch market with pans with great success.
BK’s success is apparent as soon as you open a cupboard in any Dutch kitchen, and the products are passed down through the generations. BK makes prize-winning pan ranges but also cook’s knives, chopping boards, kitchenware and cutlery.
Stock pot is a generic name for one of the most common types of cooking pot used worldwide. A stock pot is traditionally used to make stock or broth, which can be the basis for cooking more complex recipes. It is a wide pot with a flat bottom, straight sides, a wide opening to the full diameter of the pot, two handles on the sides, and a lid with a handle on top.
Stock pots have great versatility, and so they are used for many cooking purposes, and occasionally non-cooking purposes. Large stock pots may be used at home to boil clothing, wool or yarn for colour dying, for example. They do not come in standard sizes. The size of the pot is normally given on the manufacturer's label by volume, for example 12 litres.
The most common materials for manufacturing stock pots are stainless steel, aluminium, copper and enamel (Vitreous enamel) on metal. More expensive types of stock pots have bottoms that are made of layers of different metals, to enhance heat conductivity.
