Double boiler pot

Anybody know where I can purchase one? hopefully in the west end since I live in Acton

  1. I'm going with the assumption that you're looking for a double boiler insert... If you're set on the west end, Golda's Kitchen has a retail location in Mississauga. Their web store lists a couple of high-quality double boiler inserts (and of course they'd be happy to sell you a matching pot if you like) - if either of them look interesting to you, you can click on their 'contact us' link to see if they have them instock (they have a toll free number you can call, or email if you prefer).

    Having said that - if you are looking for a quick and inexpensive solution, it looks like Cayne's has a Nordicware universal one which fits over a 1 to 4 quart pan - it has a 5-year warranty and would be under $25 even after shipping and tax - so you wouldn't have to make a trek if you didn't want to. Depending on how often you expect to be using a double boiler, it may not make sense to overspend...

    1. Any kitchen store should have them. Personally, I just sit an appropriately sized stainless mixing bowl into a pot with water in the bottom of it and use that for lots of double-boiler tasks like melting chocolate, etc. It works just as well.
