There are 2 items with slightly different prices but the exact same photo. I ordered both because I couldn't find or get any explanation of the difference. So here's the difference:
Overstock # 12032167-000-000 "Cooks Pro Stainless Steel 8-quart Pasta Cooker-Stainless Pasta Cooker and Overstock # 12032203-000-000 "Stainless Steel 4-piece Multi-purpose Pasta Cooker-Stainless Pasta Cooker are exactly the same EXCEPT that the bottom of the bottom pot (the one that rests on the burner) of # 12032203-000-000 "Stainless, etc." is not as heavy duty as # 12032167-000-000 Cook's Pro, etc." It IS still firm and solid, medium weight, NOT lightweight and thin like some other pot's I've seen whose bottoms I could actually pop like a cheap cookie tin. The bottom pot by itself weighs 2 1/4 lbs for the heavier one (#528) and 1 1/2 lbs for the lighter one (#512) The manufacturer's model/SKU is #528 on the heavier-weight pot and is #512. on the medium-weight pot. I am keeping the heavier one #528 because I expect to use it a lot. Hope this helps someone else make a choice.
I was very excited when I ordered this pasta cooker and looked forward to retiring my colander. However, after the first time I used it, I noticed that I had gray spots on the dish towel when I went to dry the pasta insert. When I took a closer look, I noticed that there were spots and pitting on the strainer. I used it a second time and again I had gray spots on my dish towel and more pitting and spots appeared on the basket. I sent it back right away - and it cost me $9 for returned shipping - which didn't seem right since the product was defective.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The exterior pot was great. However, the finish on the interior pasta & strainer pots pitted immediately.

Compared to other stores, this pot was an excellent value for its size and quality at Overstock.com. Having never used a pasta cooker before it surprised me that the strainer did not hold as much as I anticipated it would.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? YES, the color was as represented in the photo

Nice, sturdy pot. Was able to toss an old stock pot, a huge plastic colander, and two broken pasta pots by buying this so it truly is a space saver. Looks to be decent quality. I thought it would be the same size/shape as my old stock pot (which is what the picture looks like) but it's actually a little shorter and wider. Seems to have a thicker bottom than my old stock pot, too. I'm hopeful that I won't be burning sauce next tomato season. Great purchase.
