I bought this 5 quart tri-ply clad Dutch oven/sauce pot/stock pot as an addition to my already added-to "Ideal" set (which see). Although I would have preferred an 8-qt, pot, this 5-qt. pot is more handy, in some instances, than the 12-qt. pot which came with the "Ideal" set. I expect to use this pot for browning meat and poultry, for smaller quantities of sauces and also for boiling smaller quantities of pasta, among many other uses. I rated the "Meets Expectations" 4 out of 5 stars only because I would have preferred an 8-qt. pot. I rated the others 5 out of 5 stars. I have found the Tramontina 18/10 tri-ply clad products to be uniformly excellent, and would suggest that others snap-up these very nice items before these become permanently out-of-stock, as some already have. From my perspective, these items (including this item) are equal to the ATK-preferred All-Clad products, but are much, much more cost-effective. These 80116-series pots are NSF-rated, too, so they can be employed in restaurants and other, similar premises.
