I use to have a circulon one, unfortunatelly it got too old and started to leave traces of black stuff (teflon I guessed) on my food.. eww!
That is why I got this shinny one with no teflon, but still does a very good job. I cooked a stew and did not stick or burn at the button. Another very good think about this pot is that it heats up in no time.
You just put it on the stove and is ready to start cooking or boiling. I think is a very good pot and I am pleased with it. ;)
This is a terrific stockpot at an exceptional price. Generally heavy and well made. The handles are substantial and won't burn like some others. Easy to clean. I find that it browns evenly. The only change I would make has to do with the manufacturer. I would like to see more bottom surface and less depth. Typically most recipes start with sautéing so more bottom surface area is preferable. Can't go wrong with this purchase. Cuisinart quality is still alive and well.
I have been searching high and low for pots in size 6, 8 and 12 qts. I cook for 6 people so need big pots. This review is for Cusinart Chef Classic's 8 qts. The top lid is stainless steel and NOT glass. Stainless steel lid is better than glass so I am keeping this top even though there are some short comings. The shape and size of the pot is perfect. However, I find the stainless steel to be a bit thin compare to Tools of the Trade that I bought from a local department store over 10 years ago. Also, there is spots on the stainless steel after you use the pot. I have a feeling it is not 18/10 since the stainless steel discolored. The pot is super shiny so scratches are visible very easily. I'm on a budget so I'm keeping this pot. It is more than what I want to spend but it is the cheapest I can find for pot with stainlesss steel lid.
