The Calphalon Classic Stainless Steel 8-qt. Multi-Pot is built to last. Pots are made from brushed stainless steel with an impact-bonded aluminum base for fast, even heating, and are dishwasher safe. The 8-qt. Multi-Pot is a four-piece set, and includes a large 8-qt. stock pot plus a pasta insert, steamer insert and glass cover. Use the pasta insert inside the stock pot when cooking pasta or potatoes −just lift to drain water instead of using a separate colander. The steamer insert is perfect for cooking vegetables, dim sum or shrimp. You can also use the stockpot by itself to cook potatoes, stews or corn on the cob.
