Better than pictured
January 25, 2015
I've used this product only once--to boil a few ounces of pasta--so I can't tell yet how it works for amounts needing to be cooked in more water. What I want to address is the online picture, which makes it look as though the base pot (which holds the water) is the old tri-ply stock pot that had no pouring rim. Instead, I'm delighted to report that the pot is the same as the D5 7 qt. stock pot (with pouring rim), a pot that I already have but use so often I needed another.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Versatile, Design
Cons: Difficult to Store

All-Clad d5 Stainless-Steel Pasta Pentola
February 2, 2014
I Loved My First One So Much I Went Out And Bought Another!
I admit a bit pricey. I found mine on sale in the Spring.
This is an extremely versatile pot. I use mine for for boiling pasta, preparing soups and homemade stocks and boiling potatoes for delicious potato salad.
Easy clean up. I do not recommend using an automatic dishwasher. The chemicals will pit your beautiful pot.
Enjoy your creations!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design, Weight, sexy

one of several xmas purchases to replace old cookware. this was great size, heated quickly on my gas range; managed pasta and veggie prep for large holiday gathering.
i'll buy more pieces to match.
