I really like the clear glass lid with steam vent too.
Buck R. Cash
Great because it eliminates boil over when making large batches of soup.
Vicki
This is a nice heavy stainless steel stock pot with a good bottom on it.

I really shopped for this - all over, for a LONG time. It arrived quickly, in perfect condition, precisely as described, and I love it. I've used it a couple of times already - I make a lot of soup, and in large quantities to share with my elderly parents. This is about as big a pot as anyone could ever need, it fits perfectly on the stove, the walls are plenty thick enough & the lid fits perfectly. I feel like I really came out the winner with this choice!

This piece of cookware has everything I want in a stockpot: Heavy layered bottom, great size, glass lid, very reasonable price. The bottom is heavy enough to use for browning meats. A great addition to my cookware collection.

I LOVE this pot. I don't know how I managed before I got this. I chuckle to think I used to make chicken stock in my 5 quart soup pot. What a pain. I had to constantly add water and make sure it didn't bubble over. 16 quarts is the perfect size! I thought I wanted a 20 qt. pot, but that would be too big to manage. This one still fits well in my sink to wash and just fits on my pantry shelf and in my fridge with the lid inverted. I can make 3 gallons of stock with ease. It has made canning apple sauce and peaches so much easier. I can now boil corn on the cob for more than 5 people. We don't have to use a paint bucket to brine our Thanksgiving turkey anymore. I've had this pot for a year now and it looks as good as new. I love that the tubular handles stay pretty cool. Even when stock has been cooking for 8 hours you don't need pot holders on the handles (you do for the lid though). I like the little steam hole in the glass lid because it helps keep the glass clear so the contents are visible without removing the lid. The only slight flaw is that my pot has a tiny nick in the inside that catches my dish rag when I wash it. I can't see it with my eyes, just feel it. I guess the buffer just missed a spot. Doesn't have any affect on the cooking performance. You can't beat the price for this pot either! It may not be as heavy duty as other pots out there, but it hasn't let anything burn for my yet. Me and my wimpy arms are happy that this big pot doesn't weigh a ton!

Overall, I think this is a good pot for the price. The base was not quite as thick and heavy as I expected, but I think it still is a good quality overall. Very happy with it, and it shipped VERY quickly.

I am completely baffled about how this even happened, but I am sure that it has everything to do with the poor quality manufacturing. We were very happy with our purchase for the first month or so until one day a mysterious pinhole showed up in the side of the pot! There were no dents or any other sign of wear whatsoever! Nor could I or my wife recall treating the pot in any sort of way that could have cause such a hole. We just filled it up with water one day to start a soup and it started leaking out the side. Upon closer examination we found the pinhole about a third of the way up. We've had plenty of other stainless steel pots for years and we've banged em around and never seen anything like this...... I am still completely confused about how this happened, but I suppose you get what you pay for. I guess at this price you really can't expect anything to last..... After all, shipping it in for warranty service would cost as much as replacing it! (I'd be willing to bet the company counts on people Not sending them back for service due to this fact). We already bought another much more expensive pot and when you compare the two side by side, you can just tell that this one is very cheaply made. Another thing that concerned us is that this pot is not NSF approved, and since it is MADE IN CHINA, who knows what kinds of materials went into the manufacturing process...... for all we know this pot could have been leaching all kinds of toxic materials into our foods. There are plenty of good pots available on amazon and we would recommend spending the extra bucks to get something that will last you 25 years rather than a month! Look for NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) approved stuff.

Received this as a Christmas present. Used it ONE TIME and stainless steel coming off on the bottom and sides of the pot and rusting on the interior. Would not recommend this pot. Save your money for a sturdier one.

The pot is a great size, easy to handle, and solidly built, but I have two main issues that keep me from giving it a good rating:
1) After the very first use, the inside bottom of the pot had already acquired a mottled, discolored appearance, as if the metal was being damaged.
2) Also upon the first use, I noticed a very strong metallic smell from the pot, which I'm not sure, but possibly also invaded my soups (can't be sure if it's just in my head or not). Some friends advised that this was normal for new pots (I've only bought one other brand new stainless steel pot, which didn't exhibit either of these behaviors), but after using it repeatedly the smell is still there, and I find it very unappealing. All in all, doesn't seem like very high quality workmanship to me. If it wasn't such a pain to ship this gigantic thing back, I'd probably return it immediately.
