  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from W.S. Stainless-Steel multipot/pasta insert I've wanted one of these for a long time and am absolutely thrilled with the versatility, and design of this pot! I'm so impressed with the quality of the Williams Sonoma products and will be back for more! LOVE! Thank you!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved this pot but disappointed now I LOVED this pot. We use it every now then when cooking for a larger group. Usually it is just my son and I so the pot doesn't get used that frequently. Lately I noticed that there was water on the stove top while using the pot. Tonight the water came flowing out from the seal at the bottom of the pot. It made a mess of the stove top and the starchy water burnt to the stove top. Very disappointed in the quality of this pot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Best Pasta pot ever. This pot boils water so fast it will make your head spin. It has this unusual bottom that does an amazing job of directing heat to the pot quickly. It is beautiful and extremely well made. The pasta insert works like a charm. It's not heavy given the size of the pot. You can cook anything from small quantities to large quantities of pasta.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Enough This set is fabulous. Big enough to boil two pounds of pasta at one time and heavy enough to cook soups and stews in the large pot. Have used it often. Well worth the price

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality but too big for me I decided to purchase this because I am a small woman and always have a hard time draining pasta and thought this should help. The pot turned out to be way too big for both myself and our small kitchen, but I decided to keep it because insert does help. I need to ask my husband to drain the pot with hot water later, though 'cause I can't possibly lift it, and it takes a huge amount of water to fill the pot and it takes a long time to fill as well. I wish this pot was available in a smaller size for people who don't need to cook so much amount of food at a time but still wish to take advantage of the insert for draining.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I wish I could have afforded really nice cookware when I started cooking; I would have saved a lot of money in the long run! This is an excellent set, from the thickness of the bottom to the riveted and well-balanced handles. I have used it several times already for steaming shrimp and vegetables and am very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Choice Used this 2X in the first week alone. Glad it went on sale!!! Free shipping, too. I was going to buy it anyway, having looked at it in the store many times. Heavy weight, but not too heavy for lifting. Love the insert for easy draining-versatile. Got the 8-qt. and it is more than big enough for full packages of pasta. Cleans up easily. Heats fast, even, I use this on my ceramic cooktop-no problems.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awfull pot I bought this in the store about 6 months ago and it is a total disappointment. It has bizarre stains on the bottom that won't come out and has discolored. I own AllClad and Le Creuset pans and have never experienced this type of weird staining. All I ever cook in it is pasta. I recommend you spend a little more and get the all clad. It just wasn't available the day I bought mine, so I settled. I wish I had waited instead of wasting my money on this junky pot!

  • Can I use this pot to make tamales?

    Asked by: Martiniyo69
    Hi Martiniyo69, To steam tamales in a stockpot with an insert, most recipes state to add about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of water into the pot, then place the pasta insert in the pot. The water should come just below the insert.

    Is it possible to purchase the pasta insert by itself? I already have the pot.

    Asked by: Christa
    Hi Christa, Sorry, we do not offer the insert individually for purchase.
