I was very impressed with its overall appearance. My 1st use was making a big batch of chili. After portioning our chili we immediately washed the pot. It cleaned up great, although, when it was totally dry the bottom of the pot had stains after one use. We also have Revere stainless cookware set we bought in 1973, still used daily, and there is not one stain in the bottom of those pots. That was a good purchase.
i have only used once for a large pot of chili, pot came perfectly clean even though it's difficult to cook this without some sticking at the bottom which there was. You need to heed the advice to simmer over lowest possible heat, the heavy bottom distributes heat very well.
