CHEFS Never-Burn Sauce Pot : With all of today's scientific and technological advances in stainless-steel pots, there had to be a better way to prevent sauces and chowders from overcooking and burning on a stove top. After years of research, the never-burn pot was born, developed by Italian home chef Paul Scioscio, with a passion for cooking and serving perfect sauces. Constructed of a 1.2mm thick outer shell of commercial-grade, mirror-polished 18/8 stainless-steel, and alternating layers of high-quality aluminum and steel on the bottom, this patented 7-layer base eliminates stirring. The real secret to this incredible sauce pot is the hermetically-sealed silicone oil chamber, ensuring burn-free heat distribution. No hot spots, no burning or stirring. Will not scorch thick tomato-based marinara, creamy Alfredo or rich cioppino. With convenient etched interior measurements in quarts/cups, this multi-use CHEFS cookware lets you measure and cook all in one pot. High sides and slightly-domed lid control splatters. Masterfully engineered from concept to design, every convenience for the chef has been integrated into the pot. Tempered glass lid on the never-burn pot includes stainless-steel rim for tight-fitting seal. Vents let steam escape to prevent boilovers. Extra-wide, riveted stainless-steel handle allows a firm grip, even with oven mitts. The squared, heat-resistant solid cast stainless-steel handles on this sauce pot are intuitively engineered for safe grip and easier lifting, even with oven mitts. Handles are double-riveted for strength and durability. The never-burn pot is a first in proficiency in the cookware industry. Suitable for all cooktops, including induction. Dishwasher-safe. CHEFS signature collection of professional-quality cookware, kitchen tools, bakeware, dinnerware and more is meticulously crafted and tested to delight the most discerning cook. CHEFS commitment to innovative, functional design is the key to delivering products of exceptional quality, performance and durability for home and professional kitchens. Product Features Advanced technology in cookware prevents burning or scorching of sauce, soup or chowder Patented, 7-layer bottom with alternating layers of stainless-steel and aluminum has silicone oil chamber to distribute heat evenly Thick outer shell of 1.2mm commercial-grade stainless-steel is mirror-polished to a brilliant sheen Hermetically-sealed silicone oil is the secret to burn-free heat distribution No hot spots, burning or stirring Every sauce and soup cooks evenly: thick tomato-based marinara, creamy white sauce or cioppino Etched interior measurements in quarts/cups to measure and cook all in one pot High sides and slightly-domed lid control splatters Tempered glass lid with stainless-steel rim for tight-fitting seal Vents on lid release steam, preventing boilovers Extra-wide, riveted stainless-steel lid handle allows firm grip Squared, heat-resistant solid-cast, stainless-steel handles on pot allow safe grip for easier lifting Handles are double-riveted for strength and durability Nontoxic and nonflammable silicone oil Safe for all cooktops, including induction Invented by Italian home chef, Paul Scioscio, determined to develop a cooking pot that prevented scorching and burning of sauces CHEFS signature professional-quality cookware, tools, bakeware, serveware and dinnerware are meticulously crafted and tested, ensuring long-lasting durability and performance in the kitchen

Takes a long time to heat!

This pot is good for what it is designed to do: it does keep sauces from burning. It takes a long time to heat up, though, which isn't surprising, given the silicon heat sink in the bottom.
Also, make sure you clean off the label on the bottom before you use it, otherwise you may leave marks on a glass cooktop.

I bought this pan for an induction cooktop, and it works great! The surface is truly non-stick, and so far I've had no degradation using metal utensils on it.

Nice Induction Unit

A nice unit, certainly capable of most chores. Induction disk works well with non-magnetic cookware, but there is a loss in efficiency. Works great with a cast iron skillet, though!
