How long does a simmer pot last?
How long does a simmer pot last? A simmer pot can last up to 4 days depending on what you are simmering in it. If you are using cut fruit like this autumn version, I would only use it one day. Without fruit you can simple cover the simmer pot when not in use and reheat as needed up to 4 days, adding water as needed.
