Perhaps some customers got a bad shipment, but I'm so thrilled with my pot set. The pot is much thicker than I expected, after reading other reviews. The pieces are all easy to clean and don't appear to show the wear-and-tear as described in some reviews. Overall, if you want a great deal for a great pot set, then this is your product! Why spend twice as much at the local superstore for half the product?!?
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The pot set looks just like it does online.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Although I read some negative reviews, I'm happy to say that the quality of the pot set is great. For the price, you can't expect perfection, but this does exactly what it's made to do.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was right on cue with all of the details. I'm even happier than I thought I would be with the pot set.
We got this pot and I think we use it everyday and love it. Our family of 4 with 2 teenagers, we cook rice,pasta, soup or vegetables with it and the 2 strainers/steamers are great, we are learning to steam as we cook to save time (and cleanup as we found out) so we use it. This is that one pot we do really use its not to big and not to small.

The pot itself is a good size, just big enough to boil up a moderate amount of pasta or braise a bunch of greens. Don't expect to saute or sear anything in it though. The bottom is extremely thin and will warp and permanently discolor before the pan is hot enough to get a good sear. The lid also has a small vent which can let out precious water if you're making something like soup.
Overall, if you're looking for a pot to boil water in, this works. If you want a lasting piece of equipment that you can saute and cook in, keep looking. This one is far too cheap for that.
The steamer was one of the Christmas gifts for my daughter in her new apartment . This will last a long time and I believe easy to clean . Will not stain when used properly . I had it shipped directly to her , it arrived early on the estimated days allowed and I did inspect the steamer myself .

Made poorly in China. Looked nice out of the box. The handles are not solid so water gets in them when washing and then continues to drain down the side. The vent in the top is not big enough even on simmer the lid rattles and spits. The knob on the lid is metal so it gets hot. Owned 3 months and already showing some rust spots, went in the garbage.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor
This steamer has an all-round nice look about it. The two different size baskets are a plus. I gave one to my husband for Father's Day - and he loves it. He can't wait to use it in his cooking. I can't wait to taste what he cooks in it! Made us both happy. Will require a bit more time to see how it holds up under use.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks a little smaller than I expected for 8 quarts - but no big deal.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears very well-made, sturdy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
After 38 years decided time to get a new stockpot steamer. This was a very good choice, used it the night after it arrived earlier that morning! I love to steam vegs, shellfish, anything that can be steamed; and our favorite: "CornBeef & Cabbage. Can cook everything in one pot, so simple and easy, Love having the two baskets, put potatoes, carrots,onions, cabbage in one after cornbeef has cooked awhile, meal ready, quick cleanup, everything fits into the steamer pot and stores easily. This is perfect size, 8 qt, does excellent job....Only complaint: Wish manufacturers would stop putting adhesive tags and labels on their products, pull it off and it leaves sticky outline. If this happens, I've just found that WD40 will get the sticky and outline off the product, didn't affect the Stainless Steel - so, all's well and I'm quite happy.

We have been looking for a pasta steamer for some time, but they are so expensive we never got one. Till now - this is an excellent product for a great value - almost half price! I definitely recommend to all.

Items like cookware usually say Made in America on the box - if this is the case. But you could also check the manufacturer's website as this is a selling point with some buyers.sepennington on Jun 17, 2013
