When you're preparing a big meal for family and friends, the Calphalon 8-qt. Simply Calphalon Stainless Steel Multipurpose Stockpot gives you the versatility you need and dependability you can rely on. This handy pot is large enough to prepare gumbo, soup, stew or chili for a crowd, and it comes with a tempered glass lid that holds heat in and speeds up the cooking process. If you want a healthy meal that's ready in minutes, the steamer insert lets you prepare steamed fish and vegetables quickly and conveniently. If your meal plan includes pasta, the pasta insert makes preparing fettuccini, macaroni, spaghetti and ravioli simple. Boiling seafood is also simple when you have this pot because the wide mouth allows easy access to your food as it cooks. An impact bonded aluminum plate in this stainless steel pot helps distribute heat so everything in the pot cooks evenly, and the inner surface of the pot holds up to metal utensils without damage. The cast steel handles, which are placed evenly on either side of the pot, are riveted in place to ensure steady support when you need to move a full pot from the stove to the table. The entire pot is oven safe to any temperature, while the lid can handle temperatures up to 450 degrees F, and the pieces are all dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. All of the pieces stack inside the pot for storage, so you don't need a lot of room in your cabinet to store the entire set.

  • The pot itself is fine, but I bought it specifically for pasta cooking. Unfortunately, if you fill the pot so that there's enough water in the insert, it boils over. The insert never has enough water for the pasta.

  • This pot sees use constantly in my kitchen. For soup, pasta, steaming vegetables....The only problem is when I have two things I want to use it for at once! Very sturdy, but use a pot holder to take the lid off; it'll be HOT! Just to note, you need quite a bit of water to cook pasta with this, as the insert does not come very close to the bottom of the pot. Overall, though, excellent pot!

    I recommend this product.

  • A heavy pot for almost all cooking needs. I've made over twenty quarts of applesauce in it this fall and have had no scorching. The thick bottom heats evenly. I'm very happy with this product.

    Cuisinart is one of the best kitchen products and I gave it to my daughter-in-law after Christmas, just because. The other strainer she was using for a few years had broken handles. I know this will NOT happen to the Cuisinart strainer pot.

    I recommend this product.

  • Poor fitting lid and steamer handles

    I was looking to replace a vegetable steamer and this looked perfect, although I had reservations about the handles on the steamer. Sure enough those wire inserts are horrible and just get in the way. outside handles are the way to go. the lid on this pot allows water to spit out all over the stove while steaming. Just a poor fitting. the best thing about this pot is it looks good, but functionality is poor. I have a lot of Calphalon products and this is the first one that disappoints.
