This pot is very user friendly as it can do everything from Soup, spagetti sauce to large batches of jelly and jam, or corn on the cob for a small army of diners. We've even used it to boil 2-3 small lobsters without a hitch.
THE FOLLOWING IS SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR CALPHALON'S HARD ANODIZED COOKWARE-- Not the non-stick.
A few other reviewers have mentioned a couple things I'd like to set straight.
1. NEVER EVER put this pot in the dishwasher. It will void the warranty. Calphalon tells you wash it by hand in the sink with hot water. Calphalon tells you in the instructions you can use 3M Pot Scrubbers and Comet Cleanser on the pan. This will remove any and all food residue, in order to keep it from sticking. Clean or Treating it about every 3-4 washings with Dormond Cleanser is recommended by Calphalon to return the pan to it's like new condition. Normally soaking the pot by filling it with dish soap and hot water releases most sticky food.
2. For those reviewers who commented about warped lids and problems, Calphalon does take their warranty seriously. Call the company (get the number off their website,) and tell them your problems and don't take no for an answer. I do agree that since some Calphalon has been made overseas vs the old time stock out of Ohio, the quality has been spotty at times.Read more ›
The anodized aluminum is not only very thin, but it doesn't look or feel *anything* like the Calphalon pans that I have. This appears to have been given a very quick anodizing treatment so that you can easily scratch the surface and expose untreated aluminum. That cannot happen with my pans. I can scrape the heck out of them with steel utensils and nothing happens other than a light mark that I can clean off. As if that weren't bad enough, the first time I put this to use, the rivets on one of the handles leaked. I thought maybe after I get it up to temp the metal would expand enough to stop the leaking. I thought wrong. It continued to leak during the entire cooking process making this pot pretty much worthless.
This product seems inexpensive, but it's actually way too much for this very low quality piece. I will definitely think twice before buying another Calphalon product.

Although this was an old purchase from years ago, I see they still want me to review it. After some use I found that food will burn on the bottom of this pot. Read morePublished 1 day ago by L. Rapoport
I use this pot when I cook for a large crowd. Don't do that too often but wouldn't be able to do so as easily if I didn't have this pot.Published 6 months ago by Jo
I use this pot for boiling crawfish and associated side dishes. The size is near-perfect for five pounds of crawfish plus potatoes and corn. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Marty Jones
