 All-Clad Stainless-Steel Stockpot
All-Clad Stainless-Steel Stockpot
All-Clad Stainless-Steel Stockpot : The terrific stockpot to make major portions of savory soup or stew, cook mounds of pasta, or boil enough potatoes to make potato salad for a crowd.

Perfect Pot

I have owned the 8 quart stockpot for many years now (if I could afford it, I would buy them all) and it meets all my expectations. It heats up quickly, holds a simmer and it cleans up beautifully. This will outlast you and can be handed down to generations to come.

Still Beautiful After all these Years

Beautiful and functional, what more can you ask from a pot. It goes from the stove top, to oven, and, since its to so lovely, to the table. I have used the 5 1/2 quart for many years and it still looks great. It conducts heat so well that it is a joy to use. My only regret is not getting the 7 quart!

What can I say "Its All Clad"
PostedJanuary 21, 2009

Seriously, its a prefect little pot. Whisking and pouring are much easier than with a standard straight walled saucepan because of the curved lip and the slanted sides help to concentrate the flavors as sauces are reduced. This pot is not limited to just sauces and gravies, used it for pudding, heating soups, etc. The workmenship is what you would expect from All Clad. It has a nice heft to it. If you don't have a saucepan and are considering one, check this pan out first, you won't regret it.

I used this attachment on my favorite cookie recipe (Biscotti Regina--sesame cookies), which was a pain to do because you had to incorporate a half cup of soften butter into 4 cups flour and 1 cup sugar, well, it was time consuming using a hand-held mixer, by the time I was done, my hand was tired. I bought this attachment specially for this recipe. This attachment is beyond words. It works beautifully and in half the time. Making these cookies is not a chore any more. I will definitely use it for other recipes. It does what everyone here raves about. However, my main concern is how long will it last because it is made out of plastic after all. You have to use common sense and don't use it on heavy dough.

This is the only way to make popcorn. You control the oil and everything else you want to put into your popcorn. I usually use 1 tablespoon of olive oil to 2/3 cup of unpopped corn but lately I have been using unrefined coconut oil and I just love the taste! Its better than movie theater popcorn. After you popped your corn you can add whatever makes your mouth happy, such as cayenne pepper, cajun spices, garlic and/or onion powder, grated cheese etc. If your popcorn is fresh usually there's no kernels left. Its the only way to eat popcorn.

I have been using this vanilla for years. Once you tried it, you can't go back to using anything else! I have given this vanilla as gifts in the past, my mother loves to bake cookies and she was so impressed with the taste and was amazed that it made such a difference in her baking. Awesome product you won't regret using.

Love to Stir Fry

fromBy-the-Sea Oregon
As you know you can't use a regular wok with electric stove top, I have been using a 12-inch nonstick pan on my smooth glass top stove. I needed 2 hands, one for stirring the other holding the pan from spinning around, which was a pain. Now, I just plug this baby in and have a ball. This appliance is so well made and a pleasure to use. So far, I have only used it for stir frying, however you can use it for other recipes according to its booklet and sample recipes, like soups and curries. Its big and if you don't have room to store it, you may have to lease space somewhere ;-) This is the next best thing to cooking with gas. It gets very hot, you need to preheat it empty, then have your ingredients ready and in a matter of a few minutes you have dinner ready. Easy to clean. You can put it in the dishwasher, not the base it comes apart, but the bowl is so large, it would take up most of the space in the dishwasher, but why bother its so easy to clean up by hand. It is heavy and very sturdy, so you can stir fry using one hand and the other you can pour your ingredients into it. Even the plug design is impressive, they design it with a hole in it making it convenient to pull the plug from the outlet, and they included a handy level that you squeeze to release it from the base without having a tug-of-war with the thing. Well made product. Fun and easy to use. It came with a plastic paddle but I recommend using a wooden one so it won't scratch the nonstick surface. If you love stir fry, you will love this wok. Also, I recommend Chinese Rice and Noodles by Su-Huei Huang and Mu-Tsun Lee, great book, your family will say its better than take-out!

I bought two, one for myself and one for my daughter. My daughter has a lemon tree in her backyard (lucky her..the price of lemons are so ridiculously high lately) and she mentioned she needed a good squeezer. Well, she absolutely loves it! So simple, quick, and easy to clean. I used it all the time, my reamer will be going to the thrift store... as the other reviewers said you can use limes with the lemon one. I have also seen an orange squeezer by the same company in a kitchen store, but I did not buy it, so Chefs should be able to add that to their catalog...

No more wet shelves from knocking over a glass with water/herbs in it. Its a very substantial, heavy-duty plastic container and rubber stopper, I was impressed. I was even more impressed by how long my herbs stayed so fresh (plus no more cussing for knocking over a glass with water/herbs.....)
