I use a plain old cast Iron Dutch Oven for my cauldron when I have the need for one. I found that it works just as well as any "cauldron" you might buy. Generally cheaper and comes with a lid and available in multiple sizes depending on your needs. Can sometimes be found at thrift stores for decent prices to. I've never seen a cauldron with a lid before. I have a copper pot that I occasionally use as well. 

Like Ellie said. beware of cheap not cast iron ones.

That's what I was worried about! Thanks so much!

Hi Sara, I would say it depends on the quality/type of a cauldron. They are not all made equal :) . Most of those I doubt are even cast iron-- but any metal should be okay for burning incense or holding liquids -- however many of these non-cast iron ones are coated in a layer of black paint to look more like cast iron.. and I probably wouldn't burn or boil in them because that stuff will also burn into your mix and peel away, and we wouldn't want that.

This might be a dumb question but can you use those cauldrons you see at new age shops on the range?
