I used it for the first time to cook 2 chickens and make stock. Both chickens fit easily in the pot, yet allowed enough space for adequate water. It was very easy to bring the pot to a boil and then reduce to a very slow simmer, just a bubble or two breaking the surface. I used the simmer burner on my gas stove, and for the first time was able to maintain a simmer with the lid tightly on. With my old stockpot (large enough for only one chicken) even with the simmer burner at the lowest setting I could not maintain a simmer with the lid tightly on the pot.
The pasta insert made it a breeze to remove the chickens when they were cooked, and reduce the stock while I picked the meat off the bones and returned the bones to the pot in the insert to cook longer, more fully flavoring the broth. Removing the insert removed the bones and other parts, making straining the stock a simple one-step process. This same process with the pasta insert will make blanching vegetables from the garden MUCH easier and faster, and I'm looking forward to freezing the veggies from next summer's garden.
The pot is weighty and solid, yet With a full pot of water I can still lift and carry it, which I could never manage with an All-Clad 12qt stockpot.
I like this pot so much I just today ordered the Chef's Classic 7 piece set with bonus 2 1/2 qt sautee pan. I can hardly wait to have a lobster feed and sacrifice some of Maine's finest lobsters in this pot, served with sides cooked up in pots from my new set. I highly reccomend this stockpot and this cookware line.
The handles are very comfortable and they really DON'T get hot. It, along with my other very small Cuisinart Chef pot are the only items I can ever recall that got a comment from my husband saying.. Whatever you paid for this it was worth it.
And he doesn't cook.. just puts the food away.
Cleans up well and I don't have to worry about scratching some coating or other.
I like it. It is very functional and nice looking..can't beat that.
The pot and I grew up together, and I'd like to think I've survived a little better than the pot! It's dinged and dented, but worse, the bottom of the enamel has started to wear. It was time to get a new pot.
I've been a big fan of all Cuisinart products, and I absolutely adore their cookware. Nothing is better for the price (esp. if you shop, as I did, on Amazon.) I measured this pot, and the dimensions were close to the revered family sauce pot, so I took the plunge.
Well, this baby is great. We make huge amounts of meatballs, etc. (all plunked in the sauce pot),and this vessel takes all the meatballs, all the bragiole, and the rest without overflow. The heat is even and thorough - no hot spots, so no burned gravy in the bottom of the pot. Cleans like a dream, and looks great in my newly remodeled kitchen.
I'd highly recommend it, esp. at this price - you'd only get a better deal if Cuisiniart paid you to take it!
Meanwhile, in our home, the sainted porcelain pot has been retired and put away lovingly in honor of the family matriarchs. But at least with this Cuisinart gem, my recipes are Old World, but my cookware is 21st century!
If you happen to get a defective one like one of the other reviewers, you should be able to return it to any reputable store that sells this item, even if you don't have a receipt. The pamphlet that came with it specifically mentioned that you could do this in California and I can't help but think the big chains that carry Cuisinart would do the same thing no matter where you are.
I'm sad about the product being as bad as the negative reviews said. I have two other Cuisinart pots of similar grade and they have held up beautifully for years. I guess they just aren't making them like they used to.
