Rated 4 out of 5 by Deacon from Good value I have this about a year. I only boil water in Iran’s don’t use it for soups or sauces. It is great for cooking pasta, potatoes and lobster. The pasta insert keeps the food from resting on the hot bottom and sticking. The steamer can go on after the insert is removed to cook vegetables over the same hot water that cooked the pasta. This is a nice efficiency. I too found that the water boils slower in this pot. I have an Al-clad 4qt sauce pop an and a Chantal 4qt soup pot, both about the same shape and thickness. The enameled steel soup pot boils water quicker. I believe the slower boil is just the nature of stainless steel and not a function of the manufacturing. I would have preferred vertical rather that tapered sides on this pot, as vertical would have given a greater capacity. The style factor comes with a slight cost.Date published: 2018-03-22Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobbyj from Happy and disappointed I already have a 8 quart pot and I thought the strainer would be compatible with mine but it is unique to the supplied pot. It still is a great buy and have already used it.Date published: 2016-03-23Rated 3 out of 5 by chefmegan from TAKES TOO LONG TO HEAT UP! I really wanted a pot with an insert to avoid having to drain pasta in a separate colander. However, I regret getting the Calphalon Pasta Pot and wish I would've gone with the W.S. version or All-Clad. This pot takes WAY too long to bring water to a boil - I think this is due to the bottom being tapered in. I would recommend looking at other pots before purchasing.Date published: 2015-09-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheilat1 from Great all around pasta pot. Just got this on the weekend and I love it. Don't know if it was my imagination or not but the pasta seemed to cook a lot faster. It is also excellent for steaming large amounts of vegetables, and with all that it looks great.Date published: 2014-12-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurie2014 from Awesome Multi Pot! I've used this for everything from steaming tamales to cooking pots of soup.Date published: 2014-11-24Rated 5 out of 5 by jomeg from My favorite pot for cooking I ordered this pot so that I could have something to blanche my corn from the garden before I froze it. This is absolutely wonderful for this. I use the pasta insert for the corn and the steamer basket to blanche my green beans. I am so glad that I invested in such a nice kettle. It is nice to have good quality cookware.Date published: 2014-08-16Rated 5 out of 5 by KimsTaste from Love this multi-use pot! I was so surprised reading the reviews for this, alot of people said it took long for the water to boil, I found the opposite I was so impressed with how quick it boiled. This was a Christmas gift, I've used the steamer insert several times and found that to be very quick as well. I have a gas stove I wonder if the people who found it took long do not? Anyway I love it!!Date published: 2014-01-12Rated 3 out of 5 by gmkinhawaii from three uses in one I purchased the multi-pot to replace a pasta pot; having it as a steamer was a plus. As stated in other reviews, the sides of the multi-pot seemed rather thin and after first use, there was discoloration on the inside bottom of the pot. On closer inspection, the discoloration seemed to be residue from the manufacturing process. After scrubbing the bottom with a Scotch-Brite pad, the discoloration was gone. I think this is something Calphalon should look into. Don't really want to think about whatever it was that I scrubbed off getting into my food. Due to the thinness of the pot sides, I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't any copper sandwiched between the stainless steel as commented on in one of the other reviews. I do like the sturdy feel of the see-through cover.Date published: 2014-01-02
