Customer Reviews:

  • Wonderful
    I bought this on a recommendation from my Mother. Our family has been in the restaraunt business for years. I use it to make big pots of soup. It's terrific. It's sturdy and yet not too heavy. The glass lid is great, I never have to lift the lid to check for simmering. The handles are very secure. They do get warm after you've had something cooking for a while. Use potholders if you pick up the pot from the stove. It's easy to clean. It has a very pretty mirror shine to it, so much so that I leave it on my stove all the time. You can't really see that in the picture. So far I can't voice a single complaint about it. For the pricetag, it's a really good deal. I'll have it for many, many years....more info
  • Terrific Stockpot!
    I got this stockpot because it was on sale when I bought the matching 3qt saucepan and my 6qt Calphalon non-stick pot was showing its age. I was worried about it being huge and not being able to store it, but it's not that much bigger in size than the 6qt pot. I've used it for everything from chili to pasta to soup and chicken stock. It's terrific. It heats up fast and holds the heat, so I have to be careful about not burning things to the bottom while simmering for a long time. Sometimes it takes some elbow grease to clean the bottom, but it always comes off in the end. This was a great value for what I paid. I'm really happy with it. ...more info

    Great pan, it was just want I wanted. I love the triply stainless-steel cookware. ...more info
  • First month great, then it stains and burns easily, thick soups do not fare well
    This pan is good for thin stocks but not other purposes. I was wowed at first. I followed manufacturer directions but apparently what ever gloss like coating they put on it wears off and then it starts burning and staining fairly easily. Still good, but not as good as I would have hoped for the price. I do a lot of browning and soups that simmer on low. Simmering beans and thick soups is not a good idea with this pan. Stocks and thin liquids do fine.

  • Worth the Money
    The rivets are definitely big, right there on the inside surface that is used, but it doesn't matter overall. The pot is very sturdy, evenly weighted, handles well, and heats well. The handles feel appropriate to the distribution of weight - their design makes sense and feels right (which is especially important when dealing with a pot this size). The pot is not too tall and skinny; the large surface area on the bottom of the pot helps food heat evenly. Because the pot handles and works so well, I use it for much more than I originally intended....more info

  • Great Pot, Great Buy
    Calphalon is always a good product, a little spendy, but a good buy. We PAID over $100 for their Wok over 25 years ago and still use it all the time and love it; great product. We had never used their stainless steel line of products; however, we were in the market for a new stockpot and the price and quality on this one was just too good to pass up. This was a great buy on a great pot. The Tri-Ply construction is wonderful, as you get great heat distribution and can greatly reduce the temperature settings on your stove. Starting your dish on the stove-top and finishing it in the oven can be accomplished with great ease with this pot; I give it the highest marks! Ours was shipped from Macy's and both shipping and delivery were very satisfactory. ...more info
  • The gold standard for home cookware
    My wife and I are trying to get away from Teflon coated items. And by next year I believe the government of the US will mandate no more Teflon cookware to be sold in the US. Our old teflon coated stock pot had croaked. My wife came back with this pot. (Teflon free :))

    The quality is amazing! I had heard that Calphalon was high quality and it really is! The heft of the pot along with the tightness of the build is second to anything I have ever used to cook with in the kitchen.

    The lid is just a micrometer too small so that it will never vapor-lock onto the pot when it gets hot. I have had other pots where it took an act of God and several icecubes to get a lid off. After a month of cooking with this it has never once vapor-locked.

    You pay a little more for this quality but it returns in dividends in the end, because you will probably never need to replace this. Compare that to subquality cookware where you have to replace it every year or so.

    The handle looks like it would take a crowbar to come off. I had a handle break off once on a cheaper pot, as I was picking up tomato sauce I had been cooking all day. Lets say I never want that to happen again, and it looks like it never will with this one!

    A great product!

    Thanks for reading my review....more info
  • My New Favorite Pot
    I bought two smaller Calphalon saucepans and loved them so much I couldn't wait to get this one. It replaces a non-stick stock pot and I couldn't be happier with it. It heats well and cooks evenly and is so pretty. I will eventually replace all my non-stick with Calphalon Tri-Ply. I know you could spend more money than this on cookware, but for me, the gumbo won't taste any better! ...more info
