I am very impressed with the construction of this pot relative to the cost. Many pots of this size have a heat-distribution disk on the bottom, and then very thin sides. That construction can lead to scorching along the sides, expecially if they overhang the disk by even a small amount. By comparison, this pot has an aluminum core through the whole bottom and up the sides. The walls are much thicker, and although I have not run the pot through any real hard paces yet, I can tell that scorching will be little or no problem. The handles are no-nonsense rivetted to the sides of the pot, and are comfortable to hold. The lid is substantial and the handle comfortable, but it does not seal absolutely dead-tight, like some much-higher end pots I have. That said, the price/quality ratio of this pot are absolutely unmatched. I am extremelty satisfied. If you need a large but not humongous pot for large batches of soup or preserves, you will be thrilled with this pot. You'd have to spend $250+ for a pot of similar quality at the high-quality outlet in the mall, but why?
