This was purchased to make large batches of soup and/stew for church functions. This pot is used every week and is always filled to capacity, so we've had extensive use of this pot over several months using its full capacity.
The handles are sturdy, well able to hold the considerable weight of this pot when full.
The pot is thick and sturdy, no worries about needing to 'baby' this in handling.
When cooking (we use "home" stovetops, not commercial), the pot cooks evenly and without burning. The clad bottom works as advertised to spread burner heat evenly. Cleanup, after cooking and serving 5 gallons of stew, is quick and easy. We've had no problems with food sticking.
To sum up, we've been extremely pleased with the usefulness and the construction quality of this pot.
One word of advice: when full (or near full), this pot weighs close to 50 lbs.
