Also known as a crucible—and not intended here as a metaphor for a heterogeneous society—a melting pot is a container that is designed to withstand extremely high temperatures and used to melt substances/materials for laboratory and production processes. Melting pots can be made from any material that can withstand the high temperature required to melt whatever is to be put in it. Modern crucibles are generally made from specialized porcelain, alumina, nickel, or zirconium. Lids are usually manufactured from the same material, and are loose fitting to allow process gases to escape.
