Today we canned 9 bushels of apples - into 135 quarts of applesauce. I bought two of these pots to cook the apples in. we use outdoor gas Camp Chef stoves to do the cooking. They do not scorch nearly as bad as single-ply pots, and no scorching at all when used as directed (medium heat; and don't forget the water in the apples!)
The steel is 18/10 as advertised, and I like the real tempered glass (not plastic) lid. Some reviewers complained about shipping issues and dents in transit, which are no reflection of the pot itself. Any pot made of this thickness of steel is going to dent if you drop it on its side. For a comparably priced pot this one does a great job.
My two "wish it were better" items: 1) The handles are riveted, not welded. this is not a strength problem but is a cheaper way to attach handles. Food gets stuck at the edge of a rivet. Expect to pay double the price, though, for welded handles as they are more expensive to produce. 2) The 3-ply bottom is not totally encapsulated, which is another very expensive option. It is securely attached and the "edge" or "rim" of the bottom can catch food if you boil over. Just something to be aware of.
I decided against a $200 pot with these two features, so I am not complaining about this pot. I got exactly what I saw in the store and am very pleased.
We canned 135 quarts of applesauce today using two of these. That speaks for itself.
This stock pot is gorgeous! Very well made and exactly what I needed to process huge batches of tomato sauce and juice, and salsa. The triple-ply bottom doesn't have any hot spots. Perfect. I would buy another one if I need it.
Don't normally need a pot this size, but it is great during canning season when cooking with large quantities. Going back this afternoon to buy a second one and have already recommended it to others as well.
LoVe iT! Best stockpot I've ever purchased. Cooks evenly! Big enough for the family holiday cookings. Excellent for gumbos, jambalaya, soups, stews .... Easy to clean even if it doesn't fit in the dishwasher :'} My daughter told me about this cookware. She said, "It's the bomb!" #a little cajun humor#
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.
I do quite a bit of canning and needed a bigger stockpot. I so appreciate the triple core bottom as this helps ensure that foods cook evenly without burning on the bottom. The glass lid enables checking on the progress of whatever I'm cooking without removing the lid and letting all the steam/heat escape. I like that the handles and lid are covered in a nonheat transferring coating eliminating the need to grab potholders. Because it is stainless, it's beautiful to look at and I know I'm not adding unwanted chemicals to my family's diet from the pot I'm cooking in.
Bought a turkey fryer (stove + aluminum pot) 2 years ago. Great for boiling crabs for a big party (10 - 15 people). The aluminum pot got some small holes in the bottom after a while. Bought this stainless steel one for the purpose. Excellent product.
Super easy to use and clean. Bottom burns evenly and heat is distributed to entire surface. Glass lid fits tight and is handy to watch cooking process. Cleanup from sketti sauce was very easy. Buy it and you will not be looking for another ever.
Got this for my mother for chrismas and she loved it. Much bigger than I expected it to be but overal it's worth the money.
My wife loves cooking and is very happy with it, we are also going to buy another of the 22 qt, plus the 16 and 12 qt to go along with it.
This appears to be a solid well made pan. Liked the glass lid.
I ordered it for store pickup to use for canning.
According to the online description it would fit my canning rack. However, the online measurements are slightly off and the canning rack would not fit. Could not find a rack that would fit so I had to return the pan.
I bought this pot because I need a bigger pot than I have, WOW! this is bigger than I had expected but it works great, I can cook larger amounts, it's not too heavy just right, the only problem for me is my sink, it's too small for this pot so I would buy the 12 quart the next time I'm buying a pot.
In a 'perfect' world, I would rather have the walls be at least 2x as thick and I would much prefer a stainless steel lid instead of glass.
BUT, I have had mine for a couple of years and it has worked great. No complaints at all.
I regularly cook up 4.5+ gallons of beans at a time. I put them in Rubbermaid containers and then freeze them.
I don't have an INDUCTION stove yet, but I just tested the bottom of the Tri-Ply disk and it is Magnetic.
The walls are not Magnetic, just the bottom of the Tri-Ply disk. That's all that's needed to be INDUCTION READY.
We loved it so much that we bought two of them. And we are canning every that can be canned. the price was more than right,, Thanks Walmart,,
I cook in very large quantities. Huge soups & stews. I was always overspilling the pot when I would stir the food. This one will certainly hold anything I would want to put in it. If anything, it is a wee bit TOO big. You cannot fill the pot and stir the food on the bottom of the pot unless you buy yourself an extra long spoon. I didn't think of that and am now trying to find a spoon that's over 16 inches long.
Considering the size, I thought the pot might be difficult to handle but it's not. It's very nicely made and feels very solid. The lid fits well. I've only used it a few times so far, so I can't vouch for rusting/staining etc in the long term but it looks like it'll hold up well.
I was happy enough with the pot that I also bought the 16 quart version. Between the two, I should be in business for years to come!
Gorgeous, yes I can call this Beautiful Stock Pot Gorgeous. I will use this to make Italian Tomato sauce and cook my macaroni in. I just love.
Triple bottom and very sturdy sides,great handles and a domed glass lid... pure quality all over and the metal finish is superb. The 22 quart is just the right size... fits under our over the stove microwave exhaust with room for stirring. Perfect in every way.
Great product, Excellent quality.
The Tramontina 18/10 Stainless Steel 22-Quart Covered Stockpot is an excellent product that will last a lifetime. Unlike some other brands of stockpots, it hasn't discolored or warped after repeated use. This is a very high quality stockpot and is worth every penny of your investment. I compared this stockpot to about 20 other brands, and have no regrets for deciding to purchase this pot. You'll find cheaper stockpots, but the value and overall quality of this pot convinced me I had made the best choice. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing a stockpot for canning, making stews or soup, candy for Xmas, or other similar needs.
Holds all that I have to cook in it. Very satisfied with pot. Best price for this pot is at Walmart not Amazon.
