This All-Clad Stainless Steel Stockpot is a staple in any kitchen. The high straight sides help retain moisture and limit evaporation. The wide base is ideal for sauteing ingredients before adding them to soups and stews. Stainless steel construction is durable, easy to clean, and won't react with food. Loop handles on either side are permanently secured with stainless steel rivets. Dishwasher safe.
