All-Clad Stainless Steel 8 Qt. Pouring Stockpot w/Lid - 4508P
Originally designed to meet the demands of professional chefs, All-Clad continues to be the undisputed choice in four-star kitchens throughout the world. The cookware has exquisite lines, impeccable balance, meticulous hand-finishing, and superior heat-conductivity. The cookware features a unique metal bonding construction in which a thick core of three separate layers of aluminum is sandwiched between an easy-to-clean, highly polished stainless steel cooking surface and a magnetic stainless steel exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware, eliminating hot spots when cooking. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The magnetic stainless steel exterior gives the cookware a gleaming finish and allows it to be used on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as on induction cooktops. The stock pot is great for preparing stocks and soups, boiling water for pasta, and cooking large batches of chili or chowder. The stock pot has two stay-cool loop handles attached with non-corrosive, stainless steel rivets, plus a large lift up-handle and lid that secures in place to allow for quick and easy pouring and draining liquids; the lid is fashioned from polished stainless steel that fits even with the pan's edges to seal in the flavour of foods. The size is stamped on the bottom of the stock pot for quick identification.
