No other piece of cookware is as essential to slow and easy cooking as the stockpot. The wide design of the stockpot maximizes the reduction of liquids, for more concentrated stocks and heartier, more flavorful soups and stews. Whether you're preparing a stock for Provencal vegetable soup, browning beef bones for beef stock, or simmering chili all day long until the flavors are blended to perfection, the stockpot guarantees delicious results. Cuisinart® Chef's Classic™ Stainless Cookware features 18/10 stainless steel and pure aluminum encapsulated in the base for fast and even heating. We guarantee it with a lifetime warranty.
