First of all, take in mind this is a 16-quart cooker: huge. My husband keeps on making fun of how I am going to cook for all the neighborhood, but it has to be that big if you want to prepare food for a lot of people or to freeze it and have healthy "fast-food". Second, it is not said on the description but it is on the box: NOT for ceramic or induction stoves. Then, even though the aluminium does not look very good, the safety features seem outstanding. Three or four different ways to prevent an accident working at the same time. And the accident will not happen if you follow the main rule for this kind of cookware: do not open if there is steam coming out. So this cooker is nosy-husband-safe! It has a manual explaining everything. It also includes three overpressure release valves with different weights to choose depending on how full is the cooker. So, 1 star down for the cheap looking aluminium and another because it cannot be used on ceramic or induction and that is not even said in the description.
This cookware compares to much more expensive pieces that I own...I was surprised at the quality and the ease of cleaning...cooks evenly...highly recommend
I recently replaced my stovetop with an induction cooktop. I have one large stew pot that I Love BUT it is not compatible with induction. I finally found this product and it works well and it is large enough to use with my stew pot. I was able to use my favorite stew pot, but I do believe it is more efficient to use induction cookware than the converter.
I just bought a new GE induction cooktop and a couple of my pots and pans didn't work with the induction surface. Rather than throw them away or buy all new cookware, I just bought a small and large one of these converters. They worked great with all my pots and pans. This was a great idea and saved a lot of money of getting new cookware.
