Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
$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.
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.
