Cauldron Substitution?

Post # 1
What could serve as a cauldron? My mother does not know of my practicing witchcraft, so I am not able to buy one.

Thank you and Blessed Be,
Andlat

It depends on what purpose it's serving really. A lot of people who cannot get ahold of or afford cast-iron cauldrons will use a cast-iron pot instead, or a metal pot works just as well. For me, if I am doing something that requires boiling herbs I actually have a glass pot I use since I'm funny about metals leaching into the mix I am making. If you're wanting a cauldron for liquid purposes, it's better to use a brass or steel cauldron anyway as liquid left inside of cast iron too long will cause the cauldron to rust. Rusted cast iron is ruined cast iron, and the creams and gels you can use to restore them I wouldn't trust with my foods even if they claim to be safe.

What exactly do you plan to use the cauldron for? It's a bit easier to help gauge the material to use if I know what you're needing one for.

Just use anything metal that can hold whatever you are putting in like lets say a pot, who cares if in ancient times cauldrons where used, thats just a old timy big pot, back then they used cauldrons for magic but also for other things, but now you can use a pot or anything else that fits whatever you nead to put inside and can be heated

The old idea of using cauldrons to mix magic potions is not true!
Cauldrons were used for cooking, suspended over a fire. Cauldrons were usually too big for mixing potions,etc. My witch teacher used a small metal pot, over a Bunsen burner.
The "witch's cauldron" idea seems to have originated with Shakespeare's "Macbeth".

I don't actually use a cauldron, but if I was needing to use one I would use either a cooking pot, a pan, or a bowl. ;)

I use a brass flower pot that has three small legs in it. It was under five dollars at the thrift store.

I use just a black metal pot and engraved unique symbols of my own making. It has worked great for me and only cost a few bucks.

A pot, preferably one without a non-stick coating inside. If you are using it for burning things in, I suggest an over-sized aluminum can, such as a metal coffee can or the restaurant/family sized canned food cans you can find at your grocer.
