Rated 3 out of 5 by MzWilson from It’s just okay I probably have not had the best experience & bang for my buck, because I do not have a gas stove.Date published: 2018-12-28Rated 5 out of 5 by H3Uber from boils 8 minutes faster than my old 8qt pot I tested this out on my 17k BTU burner, my old 8qt pot took 25 minutes to get from 66ºF to boiling, this takes 17 minutes for the same test. that adds up fast! the heat sink on the bottom makes it respond faster to turning up the heat as well.Date published: 2017-10-30Rated 5 out of 5 by HousewaresAddicted from a year later- still great! i bought this pot about a year ago and use it pretty frequently. it boils water much faster than a flat bottom stockpot. its not for cooking thick stews or soups, but for boiling pasta, potatoes, corn on the cob, a bunch of eggs for easter, its does the job quickly and with easy cleanup!Date published: 2017-04-21Rated 2 out of 5 by CathG from 2 stars for price of poor quality but great.. Starting scaling after one use. I absolutely LOVE the speed though. I've combed the internet and can't find anything else out there. This was my first "William Sonoma Cookware" purchase so it may be my last. I may return and repurchase over and over until All Clad makes one. Try something fun though. Make popcorn in it. The sound of the popping is 10x faster. You'll get a kick out of it. Oh and the size is perfect. The insert works extremely well.Date published: 2017-01-27Rated 5 out of 5 by fitmindandbody from Great pasta pot! I've been wanting a pasta/insert pot for a while and am glad I waited until this one came out. The water boils much more quickly than my regular pot. I love the insert. I also love the quality. It is weighty which probably accounts for the decreased time to come to a boil. This pot is large enough to fit a whole package of pasta varying in size including large types such as spaghetti and lasagne noodles. I also use it for steaming potatoes.Date published: 2016-10-18Rated 5 out of 5 by stilllearning from really works! Bought this because is takes forever for my water to coming to a boil and it is never a rolling boil. This pot is wonderful - it really does work - rolling boil in significantly less time - saves time and energy (gas range).Date published: 2016-08-11Rated 4 out of 5 by MariaLucia from Almost wonderful When I received this pot I was very pleased I loved the weight of it and the way the bottom is made ensures that nothing should burn. I used it to cook macaroni and loved not having to carry a big heavy pot of water over to the sink. It worked perfectly. However, when I went to clean the pot the inside bottom had several areas where it changed color and looked pitted. I was so disappointed. I called and the sent UPS the next day to pick up the pot and another one arrived two days later. I haven't used the new one as yet but hopefully it will be okay. Other than this problem it is a great pot. Can't wait to make a big pot of soup in it.Date published: 2015-10-28Rated 5 out of 5 by karenann8 from Fantastic Multi Pot!!!! This large pot is exceptional! It really does boil quickly. It cooks the food perfectly AND if you have to strainer pot in the regular pot, it does not boil over the sides at all. It cooks pasta, potatoes, anything perfectly.The pot has cut-in grooves on the bottom, which, if you have a gas range, works fantastically at bringing your contents to a boil very quickly. It is made of heavy stainless-steel, as is the insert and a very nice cover. I highly recommend this pot (but only if you have a gas range).Date published: 2015-08-10
How well does this work on a glass stove top?Hi Sarah, This is not induction compatible as the base is not stainless steel (it's made of aluminum so it will not be magnetic).Date published: 2019-07-15
