This is advertised as a tri-ply pot -- but what I just received was an ordinary steel pot with an aluminum disk brazed to the bottom. In fact, the pot I was sent looks nothing like the one pictured: the shape is different, the lip is different, the pot is different.

$99 is not a bad price for a tri-ply stock pot, but one can buy a disk-bottom pot of similar quality just about anywhere for half this price. I'd have to say this was a complete rip-off.

Representation Issue Dec 25 2010
By Gregory J. Landretti - Published on Amazon.com
As of this date, I do not believe the 12-qt stock pot shown on the Amazon site is the same as the 12-qt on the Calphalon site. In fact, I do not think that the Amazon image is the 12-qt pot. It looks like the 8-qt. All of my other cookware in the Contemporary line are "completely" clad. That is, they have an entirely smooth exterior surface and the sides are thick. The 12-qt as shown on the Calphalon site--and the one I received, is clad ONLY on the bottom--like other less expensive pots. The sides are relatively thin--like less expensive pots. At first I thought I received the wrong pot. Only after looking at the Calphalon site did I notice the difference. Having said this, I am not sure it is a huge issue because the bottom is where you need the heat for a large stock pot. Aside from the issues I mentioned, the pot is an beautiful as the others in the Contemporary line and the lid has a wonderfully snug fit. Under decent heat, the pot brings and hold water at a roiling boil which is perfect for cooking pasta.

burns and stains Jan. 16 2013
By rbl - Published on Amazon.com

I thought I was getting my wife nice pot for a present she wanted. First time use food burned and stuck to the bottom. The bottom inside and out stained as well as the inside walls. I can't get the stains and some of the food burn marks off. My $20 pot from Wal-mart does better than this. Not Happy at all! Contacted Calphalon and they are sorry but they don't make this pot anymore. They did not offer and exchange or an upgrade. Nor did they do anything about the narrative describing the pot. Be carefull and check to see if the item you are buying is still a good item with the manufacturer before you buy! I guess I'm stuck with a 99.00 flower pot.

BEWARE not TRI-PLY Nov. 21 2013
By mamathyme - Published on Amazon.com

Beware on this line of Contemporary Stainless this is the only one(12 qt stock pot) that is not tri-ply. It has an aluminum disk on the bottom. I called the company to verify this. The pot is nice but it is NOT tri-ply which I find disappointing as I have other contemporary stainless pieces and love them. The reviews were old so I was hoping that it was different, but that wasn't the case. So here is the recent info.

Warning! This has Aluminum only on bottom, not sides! Jan. 5 2013
By JohnnyAppleCider - Published on Amazon.com
Warning! The description from Amazon is utterly misleading! This Contemporary line DOES NOT contain aluminum on the side walls, only on the botton. If you want aluminum on the side walls, go for the Tri-ply line. The use of the term "Aluminum Core" or "Full Aluminum Core" is very misleading. Also, use caution with the label "Tri-ply" since that could mean only on the bottom; aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel...(Fine Print: "but only on the bottom.")

Beware of misleading advertising. The box for this product has a label on the bottom that says "Aluminum bottom," but you won't know that until you order and receive the product.

There is also a large difference in the quality of stainless steel metal used between Calphalon's Contemporary and Tri-ply lines; Tri-ply is higher quality metal. I advise getting assurance it's 18/10 stainless steel, at least on the food surface. Calphalon "does not" use 18/10 in all of their products for cooking surface. Key point: 18/10 is not magnetic, so it won't work on induction stoves; you want 18/0 exterior layer for induction stoves, but still should have 18/10 for interior surface.
