Our versatile pasta pot has a generous 6-quart capacity, plus a perforated insert that drains quickly and cleans up easily. Use the pot with the insert in place for easy preparation of pasta, blanched vegetables, shellfish, boiled potatoes and corn on the cob. Use the pot on its own for preparing larger batches of soups, stocks and stews. Heavy-gauge 18/10 stainless steel construction for durability and ease of cleaning. Thick, impact-bonded aluminum base ensures fast, even heating. Insert lifts out for fast draining, and its smooth, perforated surface is easy to clean. Riveted loop handles on pan and inserts allow for easy transfer on and off the stovetop. Use on any type of cooktop. Tight-fitting stainless-steel lid.
