This is the multi tasker every cook loves. The large 8-quart stock pot features a thick, triple-ply encapsulated base for fast, even heating. The pasta basket insert has large loop handles and drains pasta quickly and simply. It also works great for straining homemade stocks. Use the smaller steamer basket with bail-style handle for steaming heads of cauliflower and broccoli, as well as potatoes, carrots, asparagus and more. The clear glass tempered lid allows you to keep a close eye on the cooking progress. Made from dishwasher safe stainless steel for lasting beauty and durability.
