This cookware set features premium 18/10 stainless steel mirror finish with aluminum encapsulated bottoms for even heat distribution. The cooking surface does not discolor, react with food or alter flavors. The grip handles offer drip free pouring and flavor locking lids. This set features a stock pot, which is a very large, tall cooking pot usually with two handles and a tight-fitting lid. Stock pots are primarily used for preparing soups, sauces or stocks in large quantities.
