Stock Pot Magic
By Professor Spellbinder

Let’s face it; the era of Top Hats is over. My candidate for a successor to the Top Hat is the common kitchen Stock Pot, in all its utility and polished glory. It also replaces that suspicious magician’s prop that has been around too long for its own good; the Dove Pan.

Advantages of the Stock Pot over the Top Hat:

It can hold liquid loads.
It is naturally fireproof.
It has a lid, which can aid in concealing loads.
It can have a steaming basket as shown above, for additional effects.
You can make it yourself by converting an ordinary aluminum Stock Pot, for much less than the cost of a Top Hat.

Advantages of the Stock Pot over the Dove Pan:

The top is thin and can be shown (empty) on both sides.
It is much deeper than any commercial Dove Pan, thus can hold bigger loads including a live rabbit.
It can hold liquid loads.
It can have a steaming basket as shown above, for additional effects.
You can make it yourself by converting an ordinary aluminum Stock Pot, for much less than the cost of a commercial Dove Pan.

While the Stock Pot is an obvious prop for kitchen style magic (making cakes, producing potions or soups, conjuring up four and twenty blackbirds or one or two doves) it can also be used as a “Witches’ Cauldron,” a companion for a Lota Bowl or Liquid Beach Bucket routine, a companion for a Rice Bowl routine, a companion for any other liquid routine using glasses, jars, or bottles.
