Well crafted and beautiful, By Practical Gourmet 'practicalgourmet'

I recently purchased this 12qt stockpot with a pasta insert and cover, and I couldn't be more pleased. The pot is beautifully made, with very confortable handles (another reviewer noted the finger grips -- a nice touch) and the lid fits perfectly.
The Pot to Boil the Chicken.., By MuseGlance 'MuseGlance'

No I don't need the huge several gallon type pot that I use to use when my family was at home, but this is just the right size to fit and boil corn, asparagus, and the chicken for soup or stew.The handles are very comfortable and they really DON'T get hot. It, along with my other very small Cuisinart Chef pot are the only items I can ever recall that got a comment from my husband saying.. Whatever you paid for this it was worth it.And he doesn't cook.. just puts the food away.Cleans up well and I don't have to worry about scratching some coating or other.I like it. It is very functional and nice looking..can't beat that.

It does that job okay, but in all honesty I'm a little disappointed with this one.The 12-quart model is built like a tank. The steel in the sides of this 6-quart model is a bit on the thin side. Not exactly fragile, but not quite industrial strength either. I don't think this pot would last long in a commercial kitchen. At least the lid wouldn't fit tightly for very long.The inside of the pot also stained on the very first use and the usual method of scrubbing and using vinegar have not been able to remove the stain. All that's ever been in the pot is water, salt, and pasta. I don't think any of these should leave permanent stains in stainless steel.On the plus side, the heavy aluminum disc in the bottom does an excellent job of heat distribution. The riveted handles are...
