Lobster boils are nothing if not simple. The longest part of the process is usually waiting for your friends to arrive or water to boil. So long as you don’t overcook the lobster, you’ve pretty much got an outstanding evening of food, drink, and messy napkins. Of course, a Lobster Boil is nothing if not a great reason to check your pot stock (kitchen variety, not California). This two-handled carbon steel Crate & Barrel Lobster Pot ($70) provides 19 quarts of capacity and a seperate base equipped with drain spigot for removing piping hot fluids. It’s also made in the U.S.A. Now, pick up some pilsners, and visit the fishmonger.
