Customer Reviews:

  • CUISINART 5.5 QT SOUP POT
    It's the perfect sized soup pot. Heats up really fast, base plate spreads the heat fairly evenly. The base plate is aluminum, which heats quicker than I am generally used to. I especially like the shape, more like a bowl than a traditional stock pot, so that the smaller base covers the burner completely. Stockpots usually extend beyond the burner and are thin, resulting in burning at the center and lack of heat on the outside edges. Great soup pot, and good for things other that just soup. Highly recommended....more info
  • good and bad

    very thin pot, especially at the rim, mine actually cracked in the dishwasher. can still be used but it was only 2 weeks old. thats the bad....more info
  • Really a great pot for EVERYDAY use.
    I really love this pot(pan),I use it every day.the quality is very good,I even use this pot to replace a Wok for cooking Chinese foods,I bought this pot when it was on sale,so it worths every penty....more info
  • A Good Buy, but Stainless Feels a Little Thin
    I like this pot very much. Because it's wider at the top and narrower at the bottom, it's easy to put food in, and the glass lid allows me to look into the pot without removing it. The glass lid is heavy and fits perfectly. The design is very versatile, you can use this pot for almost anything. The Amazon price is also attractive. The only reason why I did not assign 5 stars is that the material (stainless) used for this pot feels a bit thinner and lighter than my previously purchased Cuisinart pots. Is Cuisinart starting to make their pots a little thinner than before to save manufacturing costs, by any chance? If so, it's disappointing, as I've been a big Cuisinart fan.

  • Love it!!
    I love this pot! It's big and wonderful. I've put it in the dishwasher and it does just fine, no water spots like I thought it might have. I also love the glass lid, I wish the rest of the pots in this collection had glass lids. Great multi-purpose pot!...more info
  • Great Deal!
    Its obviously thinner than my multiclad pro siries pans/pots, but for $20, I think its a great deal! I've made some soups and beef stews already with this pot and still shiny as new. Heating ability is more than enough for the above mentioned cooking styles.

    Thank you Amazon for providing us great deals and fast shipping!...more info
  • cuisinart chef's stainless multi-purpose pot
    The Multi-purpose pot with glass cover is a great "in-between" cooking vessel. Bigger than a sauce pan but a little smaller than a stock pot. I find I use it quite a bit. The stainless finish stays in good condition and the pot is easy to clean....more info
  • lightweight
    I was looking for a pot with this volume. Inexpensive and dishwasher safe. When I unpacked it, I was surprised with its lack of weight and thought twice about sending it back.
    After a number of uses, I am very happy with it. It conducts the heat well enough and the handles and lid do not get too hot to handle. I keep the heat low enough to prevent burning.
    I can see how this could be an issue for someone less experienced in the kitchen. You just don't need higher heat unless, of course it's just boiling water for pasta, etc.

  • A great pot for a great price!
    I must say that I really do love this pot. It's true that it's not as thick as some other cookware, but I do not necessarily view that as a bad thing. I have had this pot for a couple of weeks now, and I have found it very useful for blanching vegetables, boiling potatoes (a whole 5 lb. bag with plenty of room to spare), boiling pasta and all sorts of other things where I want the water to come to a boil quickly, but I don't need a heavy pot for a long braise. This pot fills exactly those needs. I have quite a bit of Calphalon anodized aluminum, and it can take my 5 qt. Calphalon pot a half hour to come to the boil! But this pot isn't as heavy, so it doesn't take as long. I would recommend this pot for any kitchen as a suitable alternative to your heavier cookware....more info
