Customer questions about this product
- 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.
Thanks to its tall sides and wide, thick base that generates a good slow simmer, this Vollrath 3503 11 qt. stock pot is ideal for preparing soups, cooking pasta and large vegetables, and steaming or boiling lobster! This stock pot's tall, narrow profile is designed to help preserve liquids longer and force them to bubble up through the ingredients in the pot, maximizing flavor transfusion. Plus, its durable 21 gauge stainless steel construction won't pit or discolor, is impervious to acidic foods, and helps limit flavor transfer!
This stock pot features a 1/4" thick aluminum clad bottom for quick, even heat distribution. A thin bottom wafer of stainless steel makes this stock pot induction ready! In addition, two reinforced handles come attached to the sides for easy transportation throughout your kitchen.
This pot ships complete with a flat cover that helps retain moisture while cooking while also capturing heat, resulting in more efficient cooking. This induction stock pot's large radius corners help minimize waste and enable easy cleaning.

Love this thing. Heavy, thick bottom and the perfect size for small rounds of stock. The first one came with a huge Crack in the base (the first time I have ever gotten a damaged product from webstaurant) but one phone call and an emailed picture later it was promptly replaced. I really think I should have been charged more for this.

This is great for any big pot blanching. The size allows you to cook vegetables and pasta evenly when it reaches a full roiling boil.

i've purchased two of these for general use around my kitchen. They are very nice and webstaurant store offers them at a great price. They still look brand new after several months of regular use.

The pot is very sturdy and just like how it appears in the photo. It's heavy enough to be durable. The cover fits the pot perfectly, and the design is very simple and modern.

I have found this line is a great way to get stainless steel at half the price and a good quality. This pot is great for boiling pasta in and you won't leave a salt ring.
