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.

  • Stainless steel pot
  • Steamer and pasta inserts included
  • Tempered glass lid

  • 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.

    This is truly a multi-purpose set. It has so many uses and nests nicely for storage. It is a great soup/stock pot and steamer as well as a pasta cooker and potato boiler, and it steams pork buns or broccoli. I use it often.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great value!

    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.

    This is a must for any well equipped kitchen.!

    I recommend this product.

  • Great Pot

    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.

    I recommend this product.

    I thought for the price I would get some light weight pans, but not the case. Calphalon has lived up to it's reputation with these. They are large enough to make pasta for an army and easy to clean!

  • Calphalon Multi-Pot

    The Calphalon stainless steel multi-purpose stockpot is a very good quality item which I will use over and over again for many years. It is heavy duty, a good large size, and has a large steamer insert, which was an unexpected bonus (it's much bigger than the steamer insert on the pot it's replacing). I am very happy with both the quality and the price of this cookware.

    I recommend this product.

  • Beautifully crafted stockpot

    Use it for a stockpot, pasta pot, or use the extra basket to perfectly steam vegetables... It is excellent. The lid leaks steam if you use the vegetable steamer with stockpot. The lid fits perfectly with the pasta strainer which is deeper.

    I recommend this product.

  • looks v/s function

    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.

  • good value for the price

    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.

    I recommend this product.

    I already had a few pieces of Calphalon and I like it very much. The new pan with the two types of inserts worked great for me. I make a lot of pasta and vegetables so have been using both inserts.

  • Great Deal & Great Product

    We have just remodeled our kitchen and bought the SS Stockpot before it was finished. I was excieted about getting to use it. We bought a new stove top and it will only use certain cookwear. We did not know this at the time we bought the stockpot. When the kitchen was completed I was nervous...but...it worked. It has been fun using it. We've made pasta (it has the pasta strainer inside)and it works great, with the new stove top it heats up quickly and very evenly. We've made stock, soups, stews and vegetables (it has a steam basket). The pots heats up great, cooks food evenly and cleans up great. Along with all of that it had a great sale on it. We have bought a lot of items through foodnetwork store and have loved all the items. Thanks Linda Miller

    I recommend this product.
