What kind of pot for hot pot at home
We always buy the divided hot pots that they sell at T&T or the other various asian grocers here in the GVR. However, the issue is that these pots just suck. I've had issues such as flaking "metal" (chinesium), oxidization, warped bottoms that no longer function properly on induction cooktops, leaking pots, you name it. I'm pretty sick and tired of replacing these things over the years, but they are the only one's I can find.
Now I know I can always just use an actual quality kitchen pot, but where's the fun in that? Is it so much to ask for a good quality pot?! I would much rather make a more expensive purchase that will last rather than buying 20-30$ pots and replacing them every year (if that long even).
