  • Good to great buy!!
    Verified Purchase

    Already cooked 2 soups and one time stuffed cabbage in it, and it came out great..The see-through cover helps a lot to check on the food while on the stove and it was easy to clean afterwards!

    This was a gift to our daughter and her family. She has already used the pot to make ham and bean soup and said it turned out fine and they are happy with the stockpot to make large meals and freeze left overs.

  • Nice quality for the price
    Verified Purchase

    Appears to be good quality stock pot. I haven't used it yet. I do like that it had the thicker encapsulated base as I have a flat top stove. I've ordered other stock pots for much more money and didn't like the quality so I sent them back, this one seems to be a keeper!

    If you find one of these at a garage sale don't waste a dollar on it unless you're going use it to hold knives and spoons. It is pretty when it's new though.

    The pot is great. I wish the information listed on the site gave capacity as well as dimensions, which I found useless in trying to determine what size pot I needed. I was looking for a 5 gallon capacity and got 3.

  • Not Stainless Steel--poor quality!
    Verified Purchase

    I selected this specifically because it can be used on an induction cooktop--so I was excited to give it a try. The first time I used the pot, I boiled salted water only--no food was added. When I emptied out the water I noticed small brown marks on the bottom of the pot (from the salt?), which I thought was strange. So I put some Bartender's Friend in the pot w/the hopes of scrubbing out the marks. I let it sit for about 5-10 min. When I went to scrub the pot I noticed that the entire bottom was now dark grey & discolored. The Bartender's Friend had removed the shiny surface metal! I've been using BF on all my SS for years, even letting it sit in pots for days hoping to removed burned on food. I've never, EVER had this result before. I thought the pot quality was defective, so I called Overstock and they sent a replacement. I was a bit leery to try again but I did and basically replicated what I did the first time around--with the same results--the BF once again removed the surface metal, although not as bad as the first time. That's it! I give up. If a SS cleaner like BF eats thru the metal on this pot, then it's not SS! And if it's not SS what is it? I question the quality AND the safety of the metal used in the this pan. It's produced in China which doesn't have a good track record for safe items. I should have known better but I have always had good experiences with Overstock and the reviews were universally good so I thought this would be another great product. Wrong! I will continue my search for a good induction friendly stock pot.
