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!

Don't buy this dysfunctional pot
This stockpot should be called no-purpose stockpot. it simply doesn't work. To use this pot to cook noodles is a disaster. In order to submerge the noodles, you need tons of water. The knob on top of the lid also became very hot.
The wire handles on the steamer insert' serve as an obstacle when I put things in and out.
I can't believe this is a calphalon product. I feel like being cheated for the price I paid for.
This stockpot works great for many different things. The multiple pieces really makes it flexible for a lot of tasks. We've used this to make pasta, steam veggies and many other things. It has a nice, solid construction and a big heavy base that helps retain the heat very well. We bought this when it was on sale and couldn't be happier, great product!
Nice and big. I like the steamer insert and drainer. Nice pot with many purposes. the drainer doesnt sit deep into the post, so more water is needed to use that feature. it didn't take long to boil water.
If you have never used a Calphalon product...you have missed out on the best of the best! I have been using these products for 15 or so years now and I wouldn't trade any of them as everything always is great when I use these products. So what are you waiting for?
We are still learning how to use it to full capacity. I suppose I should have tried to buy a book on how to utilize it properly to its fullest extent. Otherwise, it seems to be a great tool, well made.
The product I ordered cost twice as much as the original product I purchased at an outlet mall. I bought the product to be a replacement for supposedly the same product which was ruined when water cooked too low and I added more water. When I added water to the former stock pot, the sandwiched bottom separated from the main pot. I had hoped to simply replace the ruined unit, although it broke my heart to lose the original value I got by having to buy a second product to replace a ruined one. I was so proud of my original purchase. However, the new product which I purchased from you was not exactly the same so that the lid and internal parts cannot be used interchangeably. The reason is that the lids on the two different units fit on the stock pots differently: One fits inside and the other fits over the top. I had hoped that I could still use the lid and internal sections of the old product in the new product, but I don't think they're going to work. I may have to toss the whole former product because the spaghetti strainer and steamer part won't fit any pot I have. I hate the waste when companies have to make sure you cannot make the most of older products but have to buy every part new or it won't fit. Also, I didn't like the look of the duller finish on the product I ordered from you. I preferred the shinier finish of the original product which I purchased at the discount mall for half the price you charged. Another thing I would have preferred would have been a wider pot. If the pot had a wider diameter, it would have more utility for me.
Wonderful product. We also use it regularly as a soup pot. Heavy bottom distributes heat well enough that it won't burn during a long simmer. Pasta strainer and veggie steamer are a perfect size for a reasonable sized family or group. Pot and inserts clean up well even though they aren't non-stick coated.
I read the reviews and went with this pot. The top did not fit well, as someone commented, but I only noticed it when it was very full of boiling water. In fact, at the time I was using it as a canning pot, another use I have not yet seen mentioned. It fits half pint and pint jars, if you only need to do a few. I have since used it in the oven, and it performed beautifully there as well. I expect it to be spectacular for steaming and spaghetti! Best thing is it still fits in my stove drawer, and with some careful rearranging I did not have to find a new home for anything. Much nicer than my old 6Qt pot.
Always liked the Calphalon brand and still do, but the lid for this particular stockpot doesn't fit quite correctly and everytime I boil pasta or vegetables I have to cock the lid slightly so that I don't end up with water splattering all over my stove top.
I purchased this pot based on reviews already on the site. This is the best pot I have owned. Multi purpose, it is great for stew, sauces as well as pastas and rice. Even stuck on food releases quickly with a little soaking.
I bought this as a gift for our son who was in the market for a nice stock pot with a steamer. He lives in NYC with limited kitchen storage space,and wanted a dual purpose item. I was pleased with the weight of the pot and the construction. He will not be receiving it till Christmas,but it looks as though it will do the job. If I did not already have a good stock pot I would consider one of these for myself.
