Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel 8-qt. Multi-Pot with Lid
Bruce from San Antonio
Nice sized pasta pot with strainer. Everything fits well, and I have used it with good results.
Bob from Michigan
A gift for my wife. She loves it. It is very sturdy, well made, and attractive. It is also just the right size for much of the types of cooking that we do -- soups, steaming large amounts of vegetables, stews, pasta.
Douglas from Illinois
Very well built. You can tell by just looking at the cooker that the quality is excellent. A little disappointed that it can not be put in the dishwasher.

Can't beat it for the price. Best you can get before going to copper and paying the BIG bucks. Great quality and made in the USA. Copper laminated with stainless is the only thing keeping this product from getting a perfect score.

I first couldn't get over the cost the price was just right and the quality of the product was what you would expect from Calphalon. When finished it was a dream to clean. All you have to do is to find space, but I promise you will use it often so a spot close to the stove would be perfect.[@]
Not all that great for the price.

You can not strain angel hair pasta through the strainer. it falls out of the holes. The holes are way to big!

Pot is big enough to easily prepare pasta. Pot is heavy enough to resist denting, but not too heavy to handle easily. This pot is worth the money!
