    Okay, I’ll admit that I’m a bit biased towards Farberware in the first place, but with this pot they’ve done just about everything right. The aluminum slug sealed into the base makes for very even heating, which is important since it’s wider than most burners. And it holds up to high heat well – I’ve been browning meat and making roux in mine for a few years now. The lid is snug enough without being a pain and the loop handles are nice – the smaller Classic series stock pots have the molded plastic ones instead. The only thing I’d change in the design of the pot is to use a brushed finish – I tend to prefer that over chrome because any chrome pot that I use very often ends up with a patina of scratches anyway, and I prefer that they all run in the same direction. But who’s complaining? This pot performs where it counts – it heats quickly and evenly and has taken quite a beating over the years without so much as a ding.

    This pot is PERFECT for making homemade pasta for a moderate to large sized crowd.

    The heavy base and large capacity means when you plunge in a plate of still-moist homemade spagetti, the water keeps boiling, or returns to a full boil within a minute or so. Ours has stayed beautiful in our active kitchen for over a year despite constant use and frequent washing.

    This is my favorite large kettle.

    I can think of NOTHING wrong with this pot.

    Update: 4/2005 (a year later) – This is STILL the perfect pot for cooking large batches of pasta and two-chicken soups.

    Update 5/2008 (4 years later) – Still looks as good as new, and works just as well. We’ve given them as gifts, and they are always appreciated!

    We bought both the 12 and 16 quart pots. We couldn’t be happier. We have a large family and these sizes are great for pasta, sauce, corn, chili, BBQ…you name it. They are very sturdy, and the bottom is perfectly flat…something we need because we have a ceramic cooktop. They heat evenly and food doesn’t stick. We were looking at pots that cost considerably more, but I’m glad we make the choice we did.

    great pot for the kitchen. you can cook a lot with out running out of room. the very heavy bottom spreads the heat so you can sear the meat and then make the chili in the same pot. use it for pasta and don’t worry about boil overs. love it

    This is a huge pot. It may look small in the picture, but it’s 4 gallons, so it’ll fit a lot of food. It’d be great for lobsters, I suppose, but if you are not inclined as to boil live animals, this pot is great for stews, soups, and chili. It’s really big, but it has an extra thick bottom that distributes heat evenly, so no spot gets heated more than another making for good stews. Left on very low heat, it can pretend to be a slow cooker. Also, it’s made of stainless steel and no food sticks to its sides or bottom. I have been using it constantly since I got it and I highly recommend it. I got it on sale I’m really happy with it.
