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 12 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. The steamer basket (the one with holes) turned black after using only once. This basket must be made from a lower grade of stainless steel. I used it to cook pasta, soup, curry and corn. It is a bit tall for me but it works fine aside from the metal turning black. I'm on a budget so I'm keeping this pot.

It was exactly what I wanted. There are so many things you can cook with this pot. It just has everything. My son-in-law has been able to make so many things with all the inserts. The quality is superb.

This is a great pot and is very high quality. I almost bought some other cheap pot but
I am extremely happy to finally decided to purchase this one. This pot will make your other
cheap pots and pans look cheaper. This one looks great with my Circulon Elite cookware set.

Though the lid doesn't feel as good as it might with a different shape of metal (more angled up) or by using glass, I still think it works great. In fact, if it weren't for that one stipulation, this review would be a perfect five stars. I definitely feel this is a great value.
This pot is everything I thought it would be. I've had Cuisinart pots before, and love them. They are heavy duty, perform well under the heat and are easy to clean. Now I'm looking for a good deal on a 16 qt. to cook larger meals for family gatherings. Any suggestions???
Thanks Overstock and Cuisinart.
So glad I purchased this pasta steamer set, I needed a large pot as my family has grown and this will be so helpful to making my job in my kitchen easier! Thanks Quisinart and Overstock.com for such good products and great prices and fast shipping!

No it cant! I bought this pot and had to return it because overstock failed to have their facts. not all stainless works on inductionirishjbs on Jan 2, 2013
This was the answer from the manufacturer. Aluminium and Copper can not be used on an induction stove. Unless your specific unit doesnt work with stainless steel.
