On the day I received my new mainstays eight quart stainless steel stock pot, I was also planning on making my homemade vegetable soup so it all worked out. I usually make it in twelve quart stock pot but there is a lot of wasted room in the pot and it doesn't fit too well in my refrigerator. My new eight quart fits perfect in the bottom shelf the lid stayed on and my soup was still fresh as the day I cooked it. The lid and the pot handles stayed fairly cool, the pot heated up quickly and keep the heat. This stock pot is light, easily stored, and the clean up was quick and easy. It was also small enough that I could have fit it in to my dishwasher. This stainless steel stock pot has a beautiful shine that I would show off at any of my family get togeathers, or ever take on my family road trips when we camp. Like I said its a easy clean, little soap and water, and we're off to our next family destination. This is a great stock pot that I plan on making great meals with and trying out recipes that I have never tried before , I can't wait. Another great mainstays product!

Mainstays 12 Quart Stockpot with Lid, Stainless Steel
This is a huge pot and I love it. I use it to make bone broth and chili. It's sturdy and well made. It conducts heat evenly which is very important to me. I like that I can leave something cooking for over 24 hours and it still cleans easily. This is a great addition to any collection or a great starter stock pot.
Perfect size for my large family!!
Love this pot
I need pots for chili and soups. Every time I'd make something hoping it would last and we could have leftovers, soups are so much tastier the next day or two. But after I'd make it they would eat it all. All my pots were too small. This pot holds the perfect amount. We have been able to enjoy our soups for a few days now. This pot is beautiful stainless steel it just shines so nicely.
Sleek and sexy
This is so upscale looking. Its sleek. Love the way it looks. It looks expensive
Its thin and light weight. I have to say the only thing I didnt like was
that the handles get hot while your cooking. Use oven mitts:)
I want to get the matching pieces and complete the look.
I would definitely recommend to a friend. Love it! It's easy to clean too!
Wanted a lightweight larger pot that is stainless
We make pretty spicy/oily stuff. We have non stick but they are heavy especially when full and the food smell would “stain” the pot on the non-stick. We're pretty happy with this very lightweight stainless pot. We tried it on spicy hot pot soup and the bottom did not discolor from the fire and the clean up was as easy as the non stick. Best part no smell remain after a simple wash, the house is a different story. We got pot in it and surpassed expectations.
The pot for many things!!
I got to try this product for free in return for my honest review. I love cooking and I would say I am really impressed with this. It's a big sized pot that comes with a lid with a top handle. It is very tall and deep and can hold a lot or if you want just a little. It's nice and sturdy and durable. Pretty much anything cooks well in it without sticking to the bottom. We even made chocolate chip rice krispies in it and they turned out perfect. I highly recommend this amazing pot!!
Very nice pot
I have been looking for a pot that I can use to make my deserts and I think I found it.
This pot is light duty, but pretty well put together. The handles are on tight, it holds it's shape when heated up it's an all around good pot.
It came very well protected on the package.
I try it doing a rice pudding that usually sticks all over the pot and it didn't stick on the pot at all.... I love it.
Nice large pot.
We live on a farm, from a large family. So when there is a large family gathering, there will be 15 plus people to cook for. This large pot works absolutely awesome for this. This hold enough to feed everyone and some left over. We also cook on a propane stove, this can cause a lot of cookware to become discolored, but this pot still looks brand new after cooking with it.
Perfect for pasta
At first i thought it was pretty light weight but its held up so far. Ive been mainly using it to make pasta which it does fine but the metal is very thin so you have to stir alot especially with anything that can easily burn. Id really only recommend it for pasta and similar foods like soups (liquids). I have a gas stove and I didn't get any discoloration or warping but i also kept the hear no higher than medium. The handles stayed cool enough to move it around quickly but not cool enough to handle it comfortably for an extended period, i had to use oven mitts. The Pot says hand wash only on the website but also says dishwasher safe which is confusing but I put it in the dishwasher and had not problem. Im giving it a 3 star(average) because its really only good for stuff like pasta but its price is cheap enough that even tho thats all its really good for its not gonna break the bank
