This was a great buy on a great pot.
Lewis L. Nelson
It is a heavy pot; the heat is well distributed so nothing burns at the bottom.

I love the glass lid, which allows me to see inside without lifting it.

This is a great stockpot. I had "borrowed" my mother-in-law's 6qt Wolfgang Puck Tri-Ply for several years and finally decided to return it. After using her tri-ply for so long, I knew I didn't want to go back to any other material. I was nervous about not finding one in my price range (AllClad for example is way too much for my modest income). When I saw this on Amazon for such a great price, I was concerened that the 8qt would be too big for my little kitchen. Since I couldn't find anything comparable, I went ahead and ordered it. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised that it isn't much bigger than the 6qt Wolfgang.

The glass lid is fun because I can watch my stuff cook without lifting the lid. The handles stick out enough so that I don't burn my knuckels. They are also strategically placed to balance the weight, empty or full. I didn't notice that on the Wolfgang model.

In anycase, I have fried bits of meat on the bottom and then added liquid for soups and sauces. I have added cold stuff to hot and not had a problem with loosing heat.

This is a sturdy pot. The stainless steel is thick and it easy is to clean. It heats quickly when your hungry and can simmer sauce for hours without complaining.

If you are looking for a stockpot (especially for spaghetti sauce), go with the Calphalon - you can saute tomatoes on the bottom without any concerns.

The first thing you notice about this pan is the weight. This is due to the thick bottom and solid sides. This construction allows for very even heat distribution and excellent results in cooking. With no "hot spots", there were no burns and clean up was easy. This is not the cheapest 8 qt. stock pot sold by Amazon, but it is one of the better ones and is a very good value. For boiling water, the cheap pots are fine, but for soups and sauces, invest in a good pot like this one.

Have you stopped making tomato sauce from scratch because it sticks to the bottom of the pan and burns if there isn't frequent stirring? Are you tired of the sauce from the jar? Don't fret anymore! This wonderful Calphalon Stockpot does it all. The sauce thickens from the bottom up without sticking. No more burned taste. No more wasting precious time making all those frequent trips to the stove to stir. I am so glad that I invested in this quality 8-Quart Calphalon Stockpot and so is my husband.

Just got this pot to replace my Farberware one. So far, it's almost perfect. The handles are low enough on the pot to give good balance while carrying it when full. I love the glass lid, which allows me to see inside without lifting it. It seems to fit snugly enough and the top handle doesn't get too hot. I've just filled it half-way with water, and am waiting for it to boil. It's been 20min, and I have steam/large water droplets on the inside of the lid, but it's not quite a roiling boil (watched pot and all).The rim is curved outward (rolled), to allow for easy pouring--no drips down the side.

The handles stay cooler than the pot, but I still use pot holders. They're large enough to really have something to hold, and I like the deep angle of them--I can get a good grip with the Orka gloves.

My only complaint is the 4 rivets on each side (total of eight on the interior), holding the handles to the pot. I just found dishwasher soap caught in the edges. I also felt my sponge bits getting snagged just a bit. If the rivets were more rounded or more sloped I wouldn't have any complaints.

It's a great price on sale. I got boiling water at ~30min (I started with cold tap). I have All-Clad, and this is a nice complement to the set, and at a MUCH lower cost. I'd probably buy this again.

I bought the Calphalon Tri-Ply 8 quart stockpot to match other Calphalon Tri-Ply pots and pans I own. The stockpot is more compact than you might imagine - the diameter is the same as 10" Calphalon saute pans and the lids interchange.

As others have said, the cooking performance is first rate, with the pot being thick and heavy enough to heat evenly, but light enough to lift easily.

The thing I like best is that after using the pot a few times, I found this is a great do-it-all pot. Big enough to boil up a lot of pasta and (no suprise) good soup/stock and still compact enough to use it as a dutch oven for pot roasts. Although taller than a typical dutch oven, the tall sides are actually an aid it controlling spatter when browning a roast.

The handles are placed at just the right height to allow easy pouring, which is aided by the nice curved rim.

Although big enough for most any task, it's still small enough to fit in the dishwasher. Since it's stainless steel, it will survive dishwasher cleaning, something you can't do with anodized aluminum pots.

It may sound like a stretch, but if I could only have ONE cooking pan, the Calphalon Tri-Ply 8 quart stockpot would be my choice.

For years I've been using a 6 quart Scanpan for my chilis and sauces. This 8 quart Tri Ply is now my main pot. I don't know if it's because of the stainless vs. nonstick interior or not. I only know this pot was made for cooking, as well as being a very nice looking pot piece of kitchen ware.

Heavy, well built and just the right size. The price is an incredible value for what you get. An All Clad in this size would run about $300.

Can't say enough good things about this pot. If you enjoy cooking and need a pot this size, quit looking at the others and buy this one. You won't regret it.
