This family-size 12 Quart Pasta/Steamer Set makes cooking and draining pasta easy. With handy measurement markings and an induction-ready base, dinner has never been easier. Includes a Flavor-Lock lid for healthier, steam cooking.
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

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.
WHAT IS IN THE BOX: One mirror finish 18/8 stainless steel 12 quart (3 gallon) stock pot with pasta insert, steamer insert and stainless steel lid.
WHAT I LIKE: Every single piece of this set fits into my dishwasher! I hate hand washing pots because I just don’t think they end up as clean as they do in the dishwasher.
This pot is the perfect size for chili! Chili not only tastes better the second day, but it freezes well for “fast food” on days when I don’t have time to cook or I don’t feel like cooking. If I am going to go through the trouble of making homemade chili, then I want to make enough for it to be worth my time. Plus, I always end up with more beans after soaking them over night than I think there will be. It is so much easier to cook chili in this 3 gallon pot than it ever was in a 5 gallon stock pot and I just could never seem to make the under 2 gallons of chili necessary to use my smaller stock pots.
The pasta insert is great for boiling whole chickens and other things I want to pull out of the cooking liquid. It is also great when I make large quantities of homemade pasta. I like to entertain and this is the perfect size pot for cooking a big meal.
I do a lot of all day cooking with this pot and it has never developed a hot spot or given me any trouble. The heat truly is distributed throughout the bottom of the pan resulting in even cooking.
This pot is not so deep as to make stirring contents difficult. It is not too heavy to move around even when full.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE: I prefer clear lids to the metal one on this pan. The clear lid is available on a similar sized pot at an increased cost, but it wasn’t worth the increase in price to me.
PICTURES: I am including a picture of my 2 gallon and 5 gallon stock pots side by side. I also have a picture of these 2 pots with the Cuisinart 12 quart pot in between them.
I purchased the Cuisinart 77-412 Chef’s Classic Stainless 4 Piece 12-Quart Pasta/Steamer Set at full price.
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). Shorter cooking times produce crispier vegetables and slower and longer cooking times product softer vegetables. Make sure not to over cook though. Remember, the point of a steamer is to cook the vegetables without losing precious nutrients.
