This pot is designed for simmering soups and stocks, with high sides to minimize evaporation and help keep ingredients submerged during long simmering. The pot is from All-Clad's original three-layer bonded Stainless Steel cookware line, which pairs classic style with modern practicality. A new capacity engraving on the base makes for quick identification, and an improved ergonomic handle ensures comfort. Tri-ply construction sandwiches a heat-responsive aluminum core between an easy-care stainless-steel interior and exterior. Aluminum core transfers heat quickly and steadily along the bottom and up the sides, so the contents of the pot cook evenly. Stainless-steel cooking surface with starburst finish provides superior stick resistance and won't react with foods. Ideal design for cooking stocks and also well suited for canning, blanching and preparing food in large quantities. Loop handles allow for easy transfer on and off the stovetop. Capacity etched on pan base. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction.
