Customer Reviews

12 qt Induction Ready Stainless Steel Stock Pot w/Cover is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this pot and lid. In fact, I previously ordered a 20 quart pot of the same make and because that pot was sometimes too big for our bulk cooking projects, this size pot came to live with us too. The lid is sufficiently heavy to build a little pressure inside the pot, which hastens boiling. Its thick walls help hold heat and prevent scorching on the bottom. Great product, and attractive too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This replaces a thin-bottomed pot that would burn food in a heartbeat. The SPS-12 is heaven compared to my old pot. Its thick bottom disk allows me to cook at high heat with virtually no worries. My only regret is not buying this pot sooner. It is very well made with heavy construction and a good fitting lid. I should also say that the FSW people have been outstanding and have provided some of the best service I've had in some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am pleased with the stock pots and the racks. We gave them as gifts, they were well received. They are well made heavy duty stockpots. I would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The heavy bottom will allow you to simmer stock and even cream base sauces without burning and scorching. Very nice pot for the price, I will buy again. The construction is what you would get for a much higher priced item. This 12 quart stock pot has a finish that cleans up very well. I dont think you will be very satisfied if you choose to purchase this stock pot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice heavy weight stainless steel,pot washes well. It heats on gas stove and does not burn or have foods stick. The only problem has been a little staining in pot, not sure what caused it but it has not affected the cooking ability at all. I would recommend this pot for commercial use and hope to have for many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This pot is exactly what we wanted. We have purchased a 10qt, 18qt and 20 qt. We are very much satisfied and would highly recommend any of these pots. Their quality is outstanding and their performance is wonderful. They are also easy to maintain. No problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I have been suffering through the use of a Le Creuset stockpot for a lot of years because I paid so much for it.  But everything stuck to it or burned.  Pasta was a pain to cook because it would always stick, no matter what.  I was going to buy the highly reviewed but more expensive farberware stockpot on another site but the price was right with this one.   I absolutely love this stock pot.  Nothing sticks, nothing!  Nothing has burned, nothing!  I use it on my glass top stove and it is wonderful.  Do read the insert on the care of the pan and it won't let you down.  I highly recommend and couldn't be more pleased.  I still do the happy dance every time I use it because it is that good.  I have been very pleased with all of my purchases prices and quality through Food Service Warehouse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great pot and a great value. It's already saved me a lot in buying ready made stock from the store. Also useful for making soups or stews. Built to last.

What is induction cooking? Can this pan be used on a regular gas stove?
Asked by: Anonymous
Induction ranges use a magnetic field to heat pans to cook the food inside. Only the pan heats up, the rest of the cook top stays cool, so induction cooking does not produce any residual heat that is lost. All energy is transferred directly to the pan and food. The heating elements of an induction range, rather than producing heat, create an electromagnetic field. Heat is not generated until a magnetic metal pan is placed on the burner. The pan and the magnetic field create a current between them that generates heat. Once the pan is removed or the heating element is turned off, heating stops. It should be stressed that only magnetic metals can be used on an induction range. Since stainless steel is not magnetic, any cooking implements made of stainless will need “clad” bottoms or be labeled as “induction ready” to work.
