Ruffoni Stainless is great
January 18, 2016
Have had this pot for over 2 years, and would definitely recommend! Very beautiful on the stove, and cooks very well. We made the mistake of placing the lid with silver finial in the dishwasher after a year of being careful, and sure enough there was a tarnished effect that has been somewhat permanent. Any good silversmith could repair for less than $100 I am sure, but if it now looks like Pewter rather than silver plate, so be it. My no. 1 go to pan. The base of the pot has been in dishwasher almost daily for 2 years now, and looks new. Our finial has always turned/spinned and has created a subtle ring on the actual lid where the leaf touches, but again, I am a cook's cook, and feel that this pot has so much character and still looks wonderful. I'm proud that it looks so great after (at least) daily use. Will ask Williams Sonoma about repair to the finial some day.. I'm not worried about the cost, as this is a pot i will have the rest of my life.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Design, Quality, Size, Weight, Color, Shape

love this pot
October 29, 2015
Very nice pot, It was expensive but I think you really get what you pay for. easy to clean and easy on the eyes. I really like the look of the hammered sides and the figural lid knob. Caution by mistake before reading the directions I washed the knob on the lid in the dishwasher. the knob tarnished but did come clean with a little polish . the knob screws off easy to make the lid dishwasher safe. perfect size for a boiled diner, big pot of soup, or stew. I can hard boil 6 dozen eggs in it. I really wanted one of their copper pots but was put off with the tin lining and expense of paying to reline an already very expensive pot every 5 years. I have had this pot about a year and I use it often and it still looks new. I store it on my stove so I can see it and enjoy it's design when I'm not cooking.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Durable, Versatile, Design, Size, Weight, Color
Cons: price
