Just bought one of these at a yard sale and want to cook haddock in it.

Is anyone (Linderhof, Lurah?) familiar with using these? Any suggestions? I will need to cook enough to feed 6 people, maybe with leftovers for chowder. Probably about 2 lbs.

This is a beautiful piece of equipment. Mint condition. Could I put tiny potatoes around the haddock or no?

LOS -- I do have one . . . stainless steel but have never used it. I would assume that you wouldn't want to put potatoes around it for fish cooks rather quickly and potatoes don't unless you cook them first and just finish or reheat with the fish.

It is a beautiful piece of equipment.

I thought you put water and aromatics in the bottom (onions, herbs) get it to a nice boil, turn down to simmer and put fish on the plate and cook until done.

I've just never bought a big enough fish!

Thanks Martha, it is one of those things I have always wanted and at $5 couldn't pass it up.

I don't think I could go too wrong as fish is very easy
