Potage's Cauldron Shop was the first shop one encountered when entering North Side, Diagon Alley from the Leaky Cauldron. It sold all types of cauldrons, displaying them in a stack outside the shop, under a sign which read: "Cauldrons - All Sizes - Copper, Brass, Pewter, Silver - Self-Stirring - Collapsible."[1] It is owned by Madam Potage.

A branch of the shop is also located in Hogsmeade, and one is located in Knockturn Alley.



In 1991 Harry Potter and Rubeus Hagrid came to Potage's to buy a Pewter Cauldron for Harry, since every first-class students had to be equipped with one.[1]

During the Christmas holidays, Potage's was temporarily closed, due "to some faulty cauldrons causing a stir". [2]

Behind the scenes


Potage pronounced (pot-AZH), from the Latin-French root pot meaning drink, is a "soup", particularly a rich and creamy one. It has a more English cognate pottage (POT-idge), which usually refers to a vegetable soup, with or without meat.
