Cooks shopping for a midweight stainless-steel sauce pot at a mid-range price may well have found their match with this multi-functional pot from Cuisinart. The gleaming 6-quart pot is equipped to handle the most frequent cooking tasks such as simmering soups and boiling pasta. Like all of Cuisinart's Chef's Classic cookware, this pot is made of 18/10 stainless steel that has been polished to a brilliant mirror finish and that won't react to acidic foods. An inner core of aluminum ensures that foods heat quickly and evenly. The stainless-steel handles stay cool on the stovetop and the matching 18/10 mirror-polished stainless-steel lid has a dripless rim for easy pouring. All cookware in Cuisinart's Chef's Classic line is oven-safe up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit and is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
