Customer Reviews

8 Qt Induction Ready Stainless Steel Double Boiler w/Cover is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is awesome, it fits nicely on the stove because the handles are small and don't get in the way, just the right weight too. I almost ordered the next size down but am glad I went with the 8 qt, it is perfect for holding soup at serving temperature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I needed a double boiler to make pasteurize milk for yogurt, and cook the custard for eggnog, as well as custard sauce I needed at least a gallon size. This is just perfect, it is the right size, it's stainless steel so clean up is easy. I also can use the bottom stockpot without the double boiler insert which makes this very convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had to search online to find a double boiler large enough to make a 1/2 gallon of home made yogurt. This was the perfect one. This double boiler is very well made and an excellent size for larger recipes. I would recommend this manufacturer and any of their products if they are all this well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not 8 Qts!!! I have a cheese making recipe that calls for 2 gallons of milk. I specifically bought this double boiler for this reason. The boiler bottom pot may hold 8 Qts, but the top part of the double boiler only holds about 7 Qts.  It should have been stated in the description that you would only be able to double boil 7 Quarts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic size I had problems with finding a double broiler large enough. This one is a perfect size. It's a heavy quality metal but not too heavy to lift. It's was a wonderful investment and will last for many years!
