A stock pot is an essential part of all well-equipped kitchens. Our 16-Qt. pot is made from durable 18/8 stainless steel with a thick encapsulated base with aluminum core for quick, even heat distribution. The magnetic stainless steel base makes this pot safe to use on induction cooktops. The large loop handles are riveted for strength and safety and the tempered glass lid is oven-proof to 450 F and includes a small steam vent. Dishwasher safe.
