Something about standing over the stove and stirring a big pot of something steaming hot, fragrant and undeniably delicious brings you a sense of comfort few other things can evoke. This Calphalon 12-qt. Contemporary Stainless Steel Stockpot gives you the quality, capacity and capability to create comforting dishes simply as well as with style. Starting with the pot's construction, the quality element is quickly evident; two layers of durable stainless steel surround a heavy-gauge, aluminum core to create a triply-ply vessel that is excellent for conducting heat and browning your favorite foods. Featuring brushed stainless steel for beauty on the outside and satin finished on the inside, this stockpot is unreactive and therefore perfect for cooking big batches of acidic foods like tomato relish, jams and citrus sauces. Even the handle configuration shows care and consideration; the long stainless steel handles are double riveted for durability and feature a stay-cool and ergonomic design that keeps you comfortable no matter how long you cook and carry this pot around. Cover your Calphalon Stockpot with its coordinating dome-shaped tempered glass lid and you can keep your foods moist and juicy while still keeping one eye on the cooking process. For added convenience, this pot is safe for use on induction stoves, can stand up to metal utensils and, best of all, is dishwasher safe.

Best Used For:

Use your Calphalon 12-qt. Contemporary Stainless Steel Stockpot to cook up stews, sauces, stocks, broths and consommés, boil seafood or corn on the cob, heat up chili or even can and preserve your favorite homemade creations.

  • Great stock pot.

    I do a lot of canning, and the ideal size for me is a 9 qt batch. I have an 8 qt and 22 qt stock pot - the 8 qt is ust too small and the 22 so large it is hard to work with. Thus the purchase of this pot. I love it! If I ever replace the other two sizes it will be with this brand (if available). I've used it both on stove-top and in the oven. I especially like the glass lid - it is really nice to see what's happening without lifting the lid.

    I recommend this product.

  • Beautiful pot

    Stockpot is nice and heavy, very well made. The only improvement to me would be a non-glass lid.

    I recommend this product.

  • disappointed

    I was very excited about purchasing my first stock pot. I've been using a stainless steel 4 qt pan until now. The description of the product said that it was a full aluminum core, when I received it, only the bottom is the full core. After 3 hours of cooking quartered potatoes on med heat, the water still wasn't boiling and the potatoes weren't done. I have also been scrubbing/soaking the bottom of the pan for 3 days trying to remove the scorched potatoes from the bottom.

  • Stockpot, (12-qt.)

    This is a good stock pot made of good materials. The only problem is that there are exessive labels such as names and logos on the product. Please avoid putting names and logos on visible areas of the product such as lid or on the cover or the sides, handles etc. Your excessive advertising ruined your product even though you might have done that to protect your intellectual property.

    I recommend this product.
