Large Pots & Steamers

Having all of the right cookware in your kitchen is not only paramount to making a good meal, but also to you relaxing and enjoying the art of cooking. Having just several pots and frying pans can make cooking a little tougher. Having more equipment and cookware also elongates the life of your pieces. It is a good idea to have several large pots and steamers. Great for big meals, they also work well for small, family meals when steaming seafood or vegetables.


A multiport with steamer basket is a Williams-Sonoma exclusive, and its versatile design allows you to cook a manner of different things. Steam vegetables using the included steamer insert, boil up a huge lobster dinner or create your own spaghetti sauce for big dinners on family evenings. Stainless-steel construction renders this multiport extremely durable, and it can be used on any surface, even induction. For an added bonus, using nonstick cookware such as our professional nonstick steamer sets, gives you a multiport with a myriad of uses. Use the steamer insert for steamed dinners, or simply use the bottom as a nonstick pot to cook a large countertop meal.
