Is there a particular kind/size of pot recommended for making fudge?

Very fluffy indica. – mfg Aug 12 '11 at 1:30
Any kind of shake should do. 1/4 to 1/2 oz – Abe Aug 12 '11 at 5:23

You should use a large, heavy pan with a thick metal base, definitely not non-stick.

Why not non-stick? – basilard99 Aug 12 '11 at 14:41
@basilard99: Because at the temperature you need for fudge, the non-stick coating tends to break down, in my experience. – Vicky Aug 12 '11 at 14:49
