Preparing delicious stews and soups has never been easier than with this stock pot by All-Clad. Near perfect in design, the pot is constructed of three layers of metal; two stainless steel outer layers with an aluminum core. The stainless steel exterior combined with the aluminum core allows the pot to be used on all types of stovetops, including induction, and heats it evenly to eliminate hot spots. The included stainless steel lid holds in heat and steam, and has an easy to grasp handle, along with looped side handles for a design that's easy to move around the kitchen.
Producing some of the finest cookware in the nation, All-Clad has been featured in many high class and gourmet restaurants for its superior performance and aesthetically designed pieces crafted from American artists using the finest metals. A firm believer in quality over convenience, All-Clad's metals are formulated and bonded with cooking performance in mind, and are combined with stunning designs to provide you with the best cooking experience possible.
The bestseller among All-Clad's renowned cookware collections, the Stainless line provides serious and professional cooks with all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between layers of stainless steel lies a thick core of pure aluminum that spreads heat evenly across the bottoms of pots and pans and all the way up the sides. The interior is highly polished 18/10 stainless steel, so it's stick-resistant as well as stain- and corrosion-resistant. The exterior is gleaming, magnetic stainless steel that works on induction as well as conventional stovetops and, with care, will remain beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.
This 12-quart stockpot makes clear why All-Clad's Stainless is so popular. It's perfect for simmering soups; it accommodates enough ragu Bolognese to feed the neighborhood; and it can poach a couple of chickens. Because the aluminum core extends up the sides, foods cook uniformly, even though the pot is 7-1/2 inches deep (11 inches in diameter). And because the interior is nonreactive, tomatoes and other acidic foods won't taste metallic. Its lid and stay-cool loop handles are riveted for strength and won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. A rolled edge facilitates dripless pouring. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack
