Customer Reviews

8 Qt Induction Ready Stainless Steel Stock Pot w/Cover is rated 4.4167 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fabulous product for the money, and I plan to replace my hodgepodge collection of saucepans with this brand as well (I'm also very happy with the 3-qt. saucepan). Nice looking, cheap, practical, and decent heft (I prefer heavy to light--this is somewhere in the middle, which is perfect for a stock pot). Barkeeper's Friend and dishwasher avoidance keep it in good shape. Lid handle gets toward the high end of warm and pot handles get a bit warm, but I've never found this to be a problem. I'm a nuts-and-bolt, Bittman-style cook, so I tend not to do anything really finicky.

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 5 out of 5 by from This is a very nice heavy duty pot. Considering price and value, I would recommend it. The finish is nice and shiny. The bottom is thick allowing excellent cooking and heat transfer. All-in-all, considering the price-value this is a very good purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and price The steel used in this pot, and the extra heavy bottom were very similar to pots costing $100.more.  I love using this pot, and it cleans very easily.  Foods cook evenly.  I am going to buy some in other sizes.  This is a real find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I purchased this item based on the favorable reviews.  I can say that the reviews are absolutely correct, the pot is very well made and nicely finished.  It has a nice weight to it and feels like a higher quality item than the price would lead you to believe.  I won't hesitate to purchase some other sizes of this pot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i use this as a humidifer... i fill it with 1/2 gallon of filtered water and keep it on my fireplace insert which gets up to 700 degrees at times... it works wonderfully and shows no rusting signs. I would recommend the quaility of the Pot not to worry about excessive heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding Value I purchased this pot primarily for induction cooking. It works quitre well, and the quality was surprisingly very good. I have no experience with it cooking over gas but on my ceramic cook top it performs well.
