Customer questions about this product
- How can I properly care for this aluminum item?
- Hand washing is always the best option to ensure that your aluminum stays in best working order. However, if you decide to clean these in a dishwasher, we strongly recommend using metal-safe detergents and sanitizers to eliminate any flaking or tarnishing that could occur from some harsher cleaners.
- What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
- A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.
For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.
This economical 8 qt., 3-piece double boiler is made of medium weight 3.0mm thick aluminum. Each set includes a boiler, an inset, and a lid for complete double boiler service. For easy, secure transport, both the boiler and the inset have two handles each.
This double boiler is extremely useful in creating cheesecake, custard, and a variety of other confections. The aluminum construction allows for even heat distribution throughout the cooking process.

This is a nice set for easily melting chocolate in large batches!!! Nice for slowly melting mixtures with cheese or dairy products to prevent curdling!!

Super thick metal and superior quality! We haven't had any issues with rusting or any aeration at all. I have been very pleased with this purchase and will definitely will be back to buy more!

I love this double boiler. It is so much more functional than a double boiler. I often times am using both pieces in tandem, one for sauce and the other for noodles. However I know that when needed it doubles as a double boiler. If I was to purchase a Wedding gift or a piece for someone who was a starting cook this would be the item. Too Functional!!!! I would be lost without it now that I am use to it!!!

I'm very impressed with the 8 quart Aluminum Double Boiler. It is a very sturdy product, well made and solidly constructed. I have a smaller double boiler, but I got tired of making multiple small batches... now I can easily get it all done in one pot!!
