Simmer that crowd-size batch of three-alarm chili or boil up enough spaghetti to feed the whole block in this 12-quart Cuisinart Chef's Classic stockpot. Made of professional quality 18/10 stainless steel that won't react with acidic foods, the pot features solid cast stainless-steel handles, a tight-fitting lid, drip-free rim, and a mirror finish that retains its brightness through dishwasher, freezer, broiler, and oven use up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. For even, conductive heating, an aluminum disk is encapsulated between two layers of stainless steel in the base. The stockpot measures 9 inches high and 11 inches in diameter; 14-1/2 inches including handles.

What makes this four-piece set special is its versatility. Included is a deep pasta insert, so you can lift out and drain your cooked pasta all in one fell swoop, without needing a colander; and a steamer basket that sits in the top portion of the pot and allows you to steam broccoli, shrimp, pot stickers, and all kinds of healthy, fat-free foods. The pasta insert and pot have the same riveted stainless-steel handles, while the basket features a swinging handle that tucks out of the way when the lid is on top. Every piece is dishwasher-safe. Cuisinart covers the pot set with a limited lifetime warranty. --Ann Bieri

This was the 2nd choice of America's Test Kitchen. The first choice was about $350. I am very pleased with this steamer. I have used it to cook mustard greens, boil corn on the cob, and cook down apples for apple butter. It is well-made with a heavy bottom. It stays shiny like new, cleans up easily, and is so useful for larger cooking needs. Since buying this I have also purchased a complete set of pots by Cuisinart. Very good quality cookware.

We decided on the pot after wanting either All Clad or Le Cruset for a long time. But the cost for those brands is so high we decided to look at other brands. We looked at Calphalon, Analon, Cuisinart and JC Penny's house brand. After weighing all the prices and quality the decision to buy this pot seemed like a good one. Now we have used this pot 15-20 times we think it is an even better value. It is a great product. Heating is even and fast, things stay warm for a long time and cleanup is a snap. Of course if you want something you can throw in the dishwasher buy something else other than stainless. To keep these in tip shop shape they need to be hand washed, but it is definitely worth it.

This cookware is amazing. This is a truly well crafted stainless steel set. The pasta insert works great but the thing I love more is the steamer insert. The steamer insert paired with the solid lit make the best steamed vegetables. I am really impressed. The clean up is a snap too. Make sure to clean with non-abrasive surfaces, such as the soft side of the sponge, not the rough side(usually green SOS material). Cloth also works well. In addition I noticed a reviewer say that it scratches easily. The only way I can see this scratching easily is if the pot was cleaned with abrasive material (rough scrubbing), metal utensils (always use soft plastics and wood!!!) or harsh cleaners. These are basic rules for any stainless steel set.

This pot works great for stews and soup stocks. The pasta insert is nice, but cooking pasta is pretty fool proof.

I bought this set for about $80 and it is money very well spent. I am very happy with my purchase. I fully recommend this set to anyone that wants to steam vegetables, tamales, meats etc. We eat a lot of pasta in our house so being able to cook the pasta while the vegetables steam up top is a huge perk. Also, I had the option of going with a pot set or a plastic electric steamer, but be aware that almost all plastic steamers have BPA. I have a toddler I could not go that route. I have had experiences in the past with electric steamers (plastic) leaving food taking weird, almost plasticy. With this pot (and any stainless steel set) you will not have to worry about strange plastics and strange tastes. Buy this set, you will love it.

I've included cooking times for people that are not familiar with steaming. Stick to these times and you won't fail. You will notice that there is a variant in time (example 6-10 min).

I got this pot because I was tired of using 5 different dishes to make stock. With this pan, it couldn't be easier. Throw the insert in, put in all your goods and boil. When finished, you pull the insert out and run the stock through a fine mesh strainer and that's it. Yes, it's big; it holds 12 quarts so I kind of expected that. My range has a vent/hood above it that is lower than most of my friends, and this manages ok. I'd rather have the pan be deep than wide, as the depth makes it handy for lobsters as well.

If I had an extra 400 bucks kicking around I might have gone with All Clad because I'm a snob but as it is, this does the job just fine and I wouldn't trade up now that I have it. It boils in a totally acceptable amount of time for the volume and is a cinch to clean up- I've had no discoloration like one reviewer complained of. My equally snobby cooking buddy borrows mine constantly and is currently waiting for her own to arrive.

This pan has seriously lowered the barrier for making stock for me. No more "I don't feel like dealing with a million pans, dishes, strainers, etc" Love, love, love it and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

I hesitated to purchase this pasta pot because I thought it was too big, but decided to give it a try based on its great reviews and amazing price. It's not as big as I expected a 12 quart pot to be, even with the insert and lid. I have plenty of clearance between my GE range and Panasonic microwave (see customer product images). I'm used to using a 7.4 qt T-Fal pot to cook pasta in which works fine for 1 pound of spaghetti and more of any smaller pasta. The Cuisinart looks like it can handle quite a bit more, but the pasta drain insert isn't that much larger. With the insert in place, the effective cooking volume is closer to 9 quarts.

The material is thin steel, but that's fine for cooking pasta and making stock. The bottom is aluminum clad in steel. While I'm trying to replace all my old cookware with All-Clad, this is one piece I couldn't see spending $300 or more for the All-Clad. I'd say this is comparable to the $100-150 pasta pots that All-Clad offers, but less expensive because of the brand.
