The stockpot is a pan you'll use day in and day out. Whether you're boiling pasta, making a batch of chili or cooking grains, this pan is just the right size. When it's not on the stovetop, its two short side handles help it take up less space in your cabinet. The stockpot is made of hard-anodized aluminum, a material preferred for its even heat distribution, giving you even heating throughout the pan, even up the sides. The nonstick cooking surface means you don't need to worry about food sticking or about scrubbing dirty pans - cleanup is a breeze.
