As of this date, I do not believe the 12-qt stock pot shown on the Amazon site is the same as the 12-qt on the Calphalon site. In fact, I do not think that the Amazon image is the 12-qt pot. It looks like the 8-qt. All of my other cookware in the Contemporary line are "completely" clad. That is, they have an entirely smooth exterior surface and the sides are thick. The 12-qt as shown on the Calphalon site--and the one I received, is clad ONLY on the bottom--like other less expensive pots. The sides are relatively thin--like less expensive pots. At first I thought I received the wrong pot. Only after looking at the Calphalon site did I notice the difference. Having said this, I am not sure it is a huge issue because the bottom is where you need the heat for a large stock pot. Aside from the issues I mentioned, the pot is an beautiful as the others in the Contemporary line and the lid has a wonderfully snug fit. Under decent heat, the pot brings and hold water at a roiling boil which is perfect for cooking pasta.

This is advertised as a tri-ply pot -- but what I just received was an ordinary steel pot with an aluminum disk brazed to the bottom. In fact, the pot I was sent looks nothing like the one pictured: the shape is different, the lip is different, the pot is different.

$99 is not a bad price for a tri-ply stock pot, but one can buy a disk-bottom pot of similar quality just about anywhere for half this price. I'd have to say this was a complete rip-off.

I thought I was getting my wife nice pot for a present she wanted. First time use food burned and stuck to the bottom. The bottom inside and out stained as well as the inside walls. I can't get the stains and some of the food burn marks off. My $20 pot from Wal-mart does better than this. Not Happy at all! Contacted Calphalon and they are sorry but they don't make this pot anymore. They did not offer and exchange or an upgrade. Nor did they do anything about the narrative describing the pot. Be carefull and check to see if the item you are buying is still a good item with the manufacturer before you buy! I guess I'm stuck with a 99.00 flower pot.

This is my first purchase of a Calphalon encapsulated bottom pan. I own other Calphalon pans that are 3 ply stainless steel. I recently cooked pea soup in this stockpot on low heat for two hours and when I stirred the bottom the pea soup was scorched. If you are looking for a heavy duty stockpot this is not one I would recommend. Pay the extra money and get All-Clad.

I got this pot thinking it was a full tri-ply pot -- i.e., the entire base-and-walls were made out of thick, conductive aluminum with a stainless steel sheath. The other "Calphalon Contemporary" pots I have have this design and work well. However this pot looks quite different: first, there is a big metal disk glued on to the bottom (indicating an aluminum base) and second, the rim of the pot does not expose the inner core of aluminum the way the other calphalons I have do. (The box touts the "aluminum bottom", so it looks like the Amazon description is out-of-sync with the product.)

(Again, this is all speculation: I haven't drilled through the pot to take a "core sample" but it certainly looks like a steel pot with an aluminum bottom to the untrained eye.)

I recently changed all my pans from nonstick teflon to stainless Calphalon because of the health risks associated with some nonstick pans. They have served me well in the month I've owned them and I hope to acquire a few more in the near future.

I went with Calphalon because all clad was just way to expensive. If money was not the issue I would get all clad except for one thing. I Went with Calphalon, not only because it was cheaper and the highest quality for its price but rather the design and the fact that the lid is made of glass. I am a big fan of glass tops because I want to see what I am cooking. Even if it is fogged up I can see a little bit of it versus not seeing anything at all. I understand that having a all metal/steel container will retain more heat but this is something so minor it does not affect real world experiences.

Beware on this line of Contemporary Stainless this is the only one(12 qt stock pot) that is not tri-ply. It has an aluminum disk on the bottom. I called the company to verify this. The pot is nice but it is NOT tri-ply which I find disappointing as I have other contemporary stainless pieces and love them. The reviews were old so I was hoping that it was different, but that wasn't the case. So here is the recent info.
