'soup pan' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?

'cattle overturned lid' is the wordplay.
'cattle' becomes 'stock' (I've seen this before).
'overturned' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'lid' becomes 'top' (eg a bottle top).
'top' reversed gives 'pot'.

'for' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for stockpot that I've seen before include "kitchenware" , "Utensil for making soup" , "ovenware item" , "Resource for making soup, etc" , "Slow cooking vessel" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
