Feed them soothing soups and stews made in this Calphalon 6.5-qt. Contemporary Stainless Steel Soup Pot. This pot is the perfect companion for the cook who likes to fix one-pot meals to feed a hungry family. It features durable triple-ply construction with two layers of stainless steel surrounding an inner core of aluminum, for even dissipation of heat across the entire pot that allows your food to cook all the way through across the entire pan. The inner aluminum core allows for faster heat up and conductivity for the best results possible with your recipes. The stainless interior is nonreactive with your foods, so you are left with only the pure flavors of the ingredients in your dish. A clear tempered glass lid allows you to check the progress of your soup, stew or other dish without lifting the lid and losing heat and moisture, and as a bonus, the lid fits tightly to put you in control of evaporation for optimal results. The double-riveted handles on this pot give it stability when transferring it from Point A to Point B, and the handles are crafted from cool-touch materials for added safety.


  • Large-capacity soup pot is perfect for chili, stock, soups and stews as well as other dishes that require moist cooking
  • Triple-ply construction with an aluminum core that allows for even heating and superb heating conductivity for long-lasting performance and superb results
  • Tempered glass lid allows you to monitor the progress of your food and allows for superior evaporation control

  • I love Calphalon. I particularly love the glass lids - no more mystery about what's going on in the pot (contrary to popular opinion, watched pots *do* boil).
    This one replaces a Calphalon non-stick pot which, thanks to those in the household who just must use metal utensils, was pretty well scraped up.

    This is a beauty. Generously sized and perfect for cooking enough pasta for a 4 - 6 person gang, or to make enough soup, stew or chili to feed 6 to 8, it heats evenly, cleans up like a dream and if you do manage to stain it, grab the Barkeepers Helper. Voila! Shiny and stain-free as new.

  • 6.5 qt stainless soup pot

    I love this pan!! It's just enough bigger that a regular dutch oven so big amounts of soup don't boil over. Looks great ,cleans up well.I searched the internet looking for this pan for a long time.

    I recommend this product.

  • When this first came, I was a little disappointed as I thought the pan felt light and maybe wouldn't hold up. So far, I have used it for soup and canning (salsa and stewed tomatoes) and it works well. When I ordered it I thought the base was 12 inches, but it actually requires a 9 inch burner (I have a glass cooktop). The lid sits well and doesn't rattle. It washes up just like other stainless steel cookwear.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great pot...

    Not just for soup, though. It's a good pot for boiling potatoes, cooking corn. Also great for braising. Perfect size for a lot of things. It's well made and very easy to clean. Very attractive, too.

    I recommend this product.

  • Everything about this cookware is true. Versatily - stove top to oven to broiler; browns, braises, broils, boils and roasts and bakes perfectly. Heat distribution is excellent. Clear cover allows easy monitoring. Good seal ensures flavor and nutrients remain in food. Weight and design make it well-balanced, eay to lift when full. Handles stay pretty cool on stove top, but always use potholders as long-term cooking does eventually make handles hot. Cover handle also gets hot after prolonged time on stove. Cleans easily and beautifully. You can make almost everything in one pot. I have this two weeks and have made roasts, soups, stews, sauces, and all my recipes have come out better than ever before than with any other pots/pans,trays. Excellent value, superb quality. I no longer wish for a $400 dutch oven!

    I recommend this product.
