The size is great and multi-function and quality are good. It will be perfect to use as a stockpot, to use as a double boiler,to steam food, or for pasta.
This stock pot was just what I wanted. The only thing I don't like are the thin handles on the vegetable basket. The handles tend to get in the way.
After going through nearly few dozen stockpot options, hundreds of customer reviews, I finalized on this one, based on price, value for money, brand, others feedback... I already have few Pots & Pans from Calphalon so this was a beautiful addition to my set. An added bonus was the glass lid as I only have Stainless Steel ones for all my other Calphalon pots, so now I can use this with those (same diameter), certainly helps to see through the glass when cooking, without letting the heat or steam escape.
As far as this pot goes, very well built, sturdy and boils the water really fast. I even like the strainer insert (again very well built) & steamer that came with it. All stacks nicely without taking much space.
Great quality and made to last. Very pleased with the Calphalon pasta pot!
just the right size for a weekday meal.
Nice, heavy duty multi use pot with a great seethru lid! This will have many uses especially the smaller insert basket. Perfect for steaming veggies or seafood.
Perfect. pan for pasta, steamimg veggies and seafood, and just for making pasta sauce. Love the smaller steamer basket insert
I purchased this item for the sole purpose of steaming shrimp. I had a pot I adapted for that purpose but I really wanted a steam pot. This combo is perfect because the lid fits over the pot and the steam basket sits down in the pot. Just what I needed.
Great product...better than I expected and within my budget. Found other similar products that were far more expensive. Definetly recommend this and the manufacturer.
Finally, A pasta pot that will last a lifetime. I love this pot. Great solid build.
First I made soup / what a great stock pot.
Then I cooked Pasta, no need for a colander, loved it.
Next I steamed Brussell sprouts nice even steam, large enuff I did not have to stack them up. Good for two.
You only need this one Stockpot combination to perform multiple tasks in the Kitchen! From boiling pasta, fresh greens from the garden or market, fresh corn on the cob to steaming/poaching poultry and delicate seafood or just steaming hot dogs and/or buns!
I really like this pot, the strainer insert is so handy, and construction is substantial! I haven't used the steamer insert yet, but I'm sure it will perform great as well.
I really am happy with this stock pot. I have been wanting one for quite some time now. its great.
I was impressed with the quality of the pot. This is the first time I've ever splurged and bought something that wasn't cheap for cooking.
I only used it for spaghetti so far, and had some issues with the spaghetti falling through the holes.. but think it will be great for future cooking.
I love it. I have needed something like this for a while, but was hesitant to spend the kind of money that most of them cost. Found this one on sale and thought that the price was finally right. Love it!
Tried other stockpots. This is the one - not just a stockpot but also the pasta cooker and steamer were the selling points for me. Love the heavy bottom and see-through lid also.
Love this pan. Versatile: Soup pot, Pasta Pot,
Stock Pot and Steamer. Nice flat bottom for my ceramic cook top. Heats fast. Love Love Love it.
Good product, replaced a 50 year old version that we bought at a garage sale 15 years ago. This one is a great replacement. Really happy with the steamer and pasta parts.
The stockpot itself is heavy, which is good. It was necessary to tilt the cover when boiling pasta or it would have been all over the stovetop. However, that was not a problem. I noticed after washing the pot there were spots on the bottom that resembled pitting - it wasn't pitted, but that is how it looked. Not sure why - only boiled pasta in salted water; unless it was due to the salt and I would think that should not happen.
Nice heavy weight stockpot for a great price.
