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 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.
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.
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.
