Calphalon Contemporary Stainless 12-qt. Stock Pot with Cover is rated 4.5625 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design for electric flat top stoves I have a flat top electric range which states "match cookware contact surface to range rings", Range rings being the different size circles that heat up on the stove ( 5.5", 8" 11") This keeps the heating element in direct contact with your cookware and you're not heating "air". This pot is 8" inches in diameter which is perfect for my 8" ring except for some reason which I can't understand the pot narrows to 6.5 inches right at the bottom before contacting the stove! This means for the biggest pot that I own I have to use the lowest wattage burner on the stove, it works but takes much longer than needed to boil water or perform other tasks. This would not be an issue on a gas stove but for me it seems the designer didn't do enough research on popular electric ranges. The photo shows my medium or 8" burner turned on and all the waste heat. The 5.5" burner is hidden an inch under the pots bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size for spagetti, sauce & chili... Made a great pot of spaghetti sauce the day I received it. The pot's unique base, main reason for purchasing, dispenses even heat, to use on our glass top stove. Easy clean up afterwards.... A beautiful piece of cookware & addition to our 10 piece set of Calphalon cookware.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stockpot! I use this for chicken stock all the time and for cooking tomatoes to put in the freezer. It's the best and it is the first pot I grab when I need a stockpot! The best I've ever used. I have been cooking since I was 12. I'm a great cook and have done many gourmet dinners. I know good food and I know what helps you to make good food. This pot fits the bill.
