A Pot of Soup is a food item that may be crafted by combining Canned Soup, a Can Opener, and a Cooking Pot in the crafting window. Making one is required for the tutorial. Upon consumption, the pot used will be returned to the inventory. There are 3 classes of soup that can be crafted; Boring Soup , Simple Soup and Tasty Soup.
Contrary to what the tutorial says, cooking the soup is not required in order to eat it. However, cooking the soup changes the nurishment value from -40 to -80. A full pot of soup weighs two units less than an empty pot.
