Don't buy. I primarily purchased this as a pasta straining pot and in that regard...it is virtually useless. The strainer does not go down in the pot far enough to make it useful. It is more like a large steamer. If you fill the pot to the top to use the straining portion w/pasta...it boils over.

So happy I saw this online with Target. It gave me an opportunity to try them online which had been a while. Love the 2-day shipping, and Target had the lowest price on this 8 quart chili pot, AND it included the steamer which is amazing!!! I needed this to complete my 12 piece set of Calphalon Select Hard Anodized which I LOVE!! Cooks food evenly, dishwasher and oven safe up to 400 degrees, and offers a 10 year warranty. This brand is more costly, but compared to the other brands I've used over several decades, it's so worth it for those who genuinely cook a lot, which I do for my family. Thanks for the great pricing, and 2-day shipping for such a quality product that no other competitor could touch, and includes the steamer!! WOW! I will definitely be checking out Target more often for my online shopping as I do a lot of delivery to home, and I appreciate the quality products and unbeatable pricing without having to say, will you match this pricing ... so excited!!! I will check out your other Calphalon products for comparison as I'm sure there's other pieces I still may not have. You can never go wrong with Calphalon. Note: when cooking, it cooks evenly, and gets hotter much quicker compared to T-Fal from my experience due to the evenly cooking temperature, and holds the heat due to the hard anodized coating. With this, I rarely cook over medium heat, and when searing or boiling, I only need to go to 3/4 high on an electric stove, and once it starts boiling find myself lowering the heat to just past medium. FYI!!!
My friend and I had been researching this item for quite sometime, as she wanted an 8 quart pot. She has Calphalon and was looking for the 8 quart pot to match her set. I have to say that Target had the very best price on this item and it even included the extra parts, i.e. the steamer, etc., which made this very much a multipot. The experience we had with the on-line purchase to store pick up was a breeze. I have never had such an easy time ordering and picking up an item. The multipot is great, the experience was terrific. Thanks.
