Q. What is the difference between Tramontina 8-Qt 129.97 and the Tramontina 8-qt. 18/10 TriPly-Clad Steel Stock Pot 80116/516 that only cost 79.00?
- To the best of my knowledge, they are the same. Sometime last year many of the individual pots were "out of stock" and then came back with much higher price tags. I saw this with the 1qt, 1.5qt, 2qt, 4qt, and 8qt stock pots. Most of the old listings aren't there anymore but the old listing for the 8qt stock pot with pasta insert is still there as of today. I finished out my collection by purchasing a set which hadn't had the price jump yet. Just got the $129 - 8qt stock pot with pasta insert today. The useable interior dimensions of the insert are 5 inches high with an 8.5 inch diameter. That calculates out to approximately 4.9 quart capacity. Kind of small in my opinion. The insert sits exactly 1 inch above the bottom of the pot.by ChippyTremont2/20/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Costco has the Tri-Ply Clad 8 qt Multi-Cooker for 49.95. It is fully clad, meaning three layers all the way up on the sides to the top of the pot. Also comes with both Steamer and Pasta Inserts. Steamer insert has the cheap wire handles that unfold over the top instead of the SS side handles. The date stamp at the bottom of the box has a 11/27/2013 date, meaning this product was recently manufactured. The box states that the Stainless Steel is 18/10 on both inside and outside layers. Also made in Brazil. Packaging states it work with Gas, Electric, Ceramic Glass heat sources. Doesn't say if it works with induction. Also Oven-Safe to 500 degrees F. Also Dishwasher safe, but I would hand wash to extend life. Also life time warranty. Also NSF International Compliant. I will replace the steamer insert with the one from BBB. It has the side handles for 39.99 ($32 after 20% off-SKU # 41107126). The Tramontina product from Costco is a better value for me, since I only use it once or twice a month. Looks like a different of 2 lbs between the new and old model. Since the weight posted includes shipping weight, not sure if new model is heavier outside the box. I weighed my model from Costco. (Pot, top and pasta insert = 7.5 lbs + 1.5 lbs for box = total shipping weight of 9lbs without the steamer insert. FYI. Steamer Insert is 1lb 3oz)by tree682/2/2014Was this answer helpful?

- I think it is because the $129.97 item has a paster cooker/strainer insert in addition to the 8 qt. Stock Pot.by Andy2061/3/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- Both cookware pieces are excellent choices, and will provide excellent performace in the kitchen. However, one item is an older model than the other, with slightly different handles. The handles on the newer model (80116/565) is a bit flatter than the the handles on 80116/516.by Customer Support Team10/3/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I am guessing that the more expensive is a newer model that is induction capable.by cpa812/7/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (2)Was this answer helpful?
Q. Trying again to get a useful answer: What is the difference between this item and the older version 80115/516 that was $50 less?
- I think the two versions are identical - the only difference being the new and improved price. Several of the other Tramontina tri-ply pots also jumped significantly in price about the same time (ie. the 1qt, 1.5qt, 2qt, and 4qt). I rounded out my collection with one of the sets which had not yet jumped in price at the time I bought it. I just bought the $129 version of the 8qt pasta insert pot today and it's great like all the other Tramontina pots I own. However, I'm exchanging it for the 8qt stockpot without the pasta insert. The pasta insert just isn't big enough for me, especially for the extra $40 ($89.97 without vs. $129.97 with#. The insert capacity is approx. 4.9 quarts #calculated by me from it's dimensions) and that's if the pot is filled up to the top. The usable inside dimensions of the insert are 5 inches high with an 8.5 inch diameter. The bottom of the insert sits 1 inch above the bottom of the pot. The new version is induction compatible.by ChippyTremont6/27/2014Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- This new model (80116/565) and the older model from 2010 (80116/516) are very similar in looks and functionality. Both items feature an 8 Quart Stock Pot, Pasta Insert, Stainless Steel lid, and are induction-ready. However, there are slight variations in the handles and styling for the new multicooker. Please note: The price of the older item was definitely a great value, and reflects the cost of manufacturing the product more than 4 years ago. Since then, the cost of the raw materials and the cost to manufacture the products have gone up, and may be reflected in the pricing of the new item. Although the new product pricing is higher, the price listed still offers much value for its exceptional quality.by Customer Support Team12/27/2014Was this answer helpful?

- Yes, these handles can get hot.by CommunityAnswer1/3/2015Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- The cast stainless steel handles for the Tramontina 8-Qt Tri-Ply Clad Multi-Cooker (Item# 80116/565) are thick (which helps to dissipate heat), and will generally stay cool when cooking under normal circumstances - following use and care instructions. However, they may get hot if they are placed underneath a direct heat source (like an oven or broiler) and if they are used when cooking with a high flame. Always be sure to use oven mitts when handling hot cookware.by Customer Support Team1/3/2015Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
