All-Clad Copper Core Pasta Pentola

Elite chefs depend on All-Clad's Copper Core cookware for its superb responsiveness to heat, given the thick copper core between layers of aluminum and stainless steel. Perfect for everything from preparing stock to boiling pasta, this set includes a 7-qt. pot, perforated insert and lid. Five-ply construction of securely bonded metals: a thick, heat-responsive copper core sandwiched between two layers of highly conductive aluminum with an easy-clean stainless-steel exterior and interior that won't react with foods. Allows for the quickest heat-up time, maximum temperature control and rapid, even heat distribution. A ring of copper adds a finishing touch to the gleaming exterior. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction. When cooking pasta, simply lift insert out of the pot to drain. 8 1/2" diam.; 7 3/4" high; 7-qt. cap.; 10 lb. with lid and insert. Hand crafted in the USA with materials from the USA.

DEFECTIVE ... Two pots cracked ... See image below
December 17, 2014
The first pot I bought cracked within one and a half months of use. Williams Sonoma replaced it promptly. The second one broke again within 30 days. Returned It for good. I really wanted to keep this pot. I've had all the other copper core pans / pots for years, love them, and never had any issues. A pot in this price point should NEVER crack. By the way, the crack began small and the more you use it, the larger the crack gets.
Cons: Quality, cracked

Truly best pot ever - not just for pasta
December 29, 2013
This replaces a 20 year old pasta pot. Shopping took three tries to get this right. First All Clad's 12 quart tripot. It was too big with too thin sides and the overall quality didn't speak of All Clad. Next I brought home a Demeyer Atlantis 8 quart pot with pasta strainer. The handles didn't accommodate my full size fingers; finish and quality was nice but just not aesthetically pleasing as I wanted. So finally I selected this 7.5 quart copper core pasta pentola. I'm cooking on gas so the copper wasn't a selling point. I chose this over the D5 because it’s curved lip has clean pouring. This pot is extremely well made with a beautiful shiny flawless finish. The sides are very thick so the pot takes a while to heat up (contrary to what the sales gal told me) but once the water’s boiling it retains the heat very well and the extra high sides on the strainer allow me to leave the lid on while the pasta cooks. All in all this is hands down the best pot I've ever owned or used.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design
Cons: Weight
