Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

    Smudges on the exterior very easily, the smudge marks start to smoke when using the pot for deep frying. The weld points for the handle started to either oxidize or turn into a dark color. Could be weakening the welds over time.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I purchased this for making cheese. I love the heavy bottom! I felt the price was on target as well after shopping around a while.
    I ordered an 8-quart model. It is written such that I believed it would have welded handles, but it arrived with riveted handles. I contacted customer service and they tell me that it is not unusual for them to substitute something other than what is on the website. I thought that was unusual. I was kind of unhappy with the whole situation, but I needed a pot that was a little bigger so I ordered a 12 quart. The website for both of these items listed Vigor as the manufacturer and listed welded handles. I did not want the rivets. For both of these, I received a Winco manufactured item. The box with the 12 quart arrived that read welded handles on the boxes label. I couldn't believe my eyes when I pulled out the pot and there were rivets instead of welds. Someone must have switched out the pot at some point. It is unacceptable to be provided with an inferior product. It is bad enough to be told that this a common practice, but to have a product show up that doesn't match it's own label is ridiculous. I made chili with the eight quart and it worked well. Once it coold to 141 degrees F, I transferred the chili to smaller containers and commenced cleaning the pot. The bottom rinsed out with water, so that was wonderful. The area around the rivets had chili that splashed and dried there and was difficult to remove. I am a veteran with service connected disability, so spending a half hour standing up is not something I can do anymore. It took three ten minutes sessions to wash it. That is why I ordered a 12 quart with welede handles. I am very disappointed with the handles. The pot itself works well. If I owned a restaurant, the rivets may be better. The pot seems close to indestrucable. I really hate both of these pots because of the handles. Read Less Read More
    Thank you for your review, Edsel! We are sorry this Vigor 12 Qt. Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel Aluminum-Clad Stock Pot with Cover has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    I love these, it is so hard to find commercial pots to use with our invert plate, we ordered the 16qt & 12qt . They worked perfectly in our food truck.
    Great Pot. Works well on our induction unit, no issues with warping, sticking, etc. I'd definitely buy another - it's a good size as well.
    Very happy with this pot for a family of 6, big enough to make Sundays sopu for family a few friends. No scorching and well made.
    This is my go-to pot for building up long-simmered bone stocks, and for large batches of *any* kinds of soups or other meals. Retains heat, sturdy, and cleans well, 'tho it's too big for the kitchen sink -- so it gets soaped up and cleaned on towels under the bathtub faucets. Couldn't be happier, recommended.
    I bought this for bulk cooking, its very nice in quality and bottom is heavy .for my catering business it woks very well all the time ??
    Great product. Heavy duty for daily grab and go soup production. Easy clean up and storage. Only issue is it scratches very easy. Still recommend this product
    Great heavy-bottomed pot for making sauces and stocks without scorching. The inclusion of a lid makes this an even better purchase. The aluminum cladding also heats very evenly and quickly.
    My staff really enjoys having this large stock pot in the kitchen. It is truly heavy duty, but not too heavy to move around. The cover fits well and allows steam to escape as needed.
    I bought this for my husband, who was looking for a heavy duty stainless steel pot. My husband did a lot searching online before deciding on this pot. He has used it to fry chicken wings with no problems. He has used it to make soup a couple of times with no problem. We purchased this 12 qt and the 16 qt pot, the lids fit both pots.
    The quality and price of this brand pots are unbeatable in my opinion. The only thing I wish were different is if the pot was a little less wide and was a little more taller; otherwise I would have given this a 5 star rating.
    Good looking item used for banquets and everyday line use. Sauces, soups, you name it! Durable and holds up for high volume.. Will buy again.
    Excellent value. Heavy bottom, even heat distribution, sturdy handles, well-fitting lid. Zero complaints.
    Perfect size for the double batches of soup that I make very year at Christmas time. Very heavy duty. Restaurant Quality. Stainless steel. They clean up nicely with Dawn dish soap.
    I got this pot to fill a void between my 8 quart pot and my 16 quart pots. The Stock pot is a perfect fit. The pot is a great size and fits perfectly over my burners. I am using it on a gas stove and have had not problems with hot spots. The lid is a nice bonus.
    A great value for a work horse sized pot in any restaurant. With kid included this very heavy duty pot has many applications and fits nicely in any dishwasher.

    This steel stock pot is a great buy. It's sturdy and works on our induction cook top. The handles are comfortable and easy to grip.
    I use this pot for reducing sauces and glazes. It fits 12 quarts, and has high sides so it is good for cooking without anything spilling over.
    this is a well made pot. the heavy aluminum bottom makes it difficult to burn food, you need to try hard to do so. liked it well enough to buy the 24 qt version.
    Nice pot with a lid that fits snugly. A little big for home use, has nice solid handles and bottom is nice and sturdy. Great buy for the price.
    Very happy with this kettle. I use it regularly for cream pie fillings and have not scorched anything yet. A nice size for smaller batches.
    This stock pot is of really nice quality. It has a good weight and the handles make it easy to move and pour with. I use it with a Vollrath induction range and it works flawlessly.
    Amazed at the quality of this stockpot for the price. Well made with much heavier base and sides than many of the competitors. Fast shipping makes it even better.
    As nice as the Vollrath brand for less! been using like pans over 15 years and don't see any issue with these that would prevent us from getting the same.
    Great stockpot. Heavy weight stainless pot at a great price. Small enough to fit on standard burner but big enough for sauces, boiling or frying.
    This 12 qt stock pot is another awsome pot you will be happy you bought for any business. Great Price and will last you a very long time.
    This pot works very well with my induction cooktop range. Pan heats evenly across the bottom and has held up very well from repeated washing and scrubbing. I have used it to make everything from jelly to stews.
    just like my Grandma's stock pot. We make stuff cabbage (Pigs in the blanket) and the wider pot allows the pigs to be moved without being broke apart. The heavy construction distributes heat perfectly so to not burn the food. I want another one
    Best deal I've seen. It has solid sides, a thick aluminum base, sturdy riveted handles, and a well fitting lid. Nothing more you could want from a stock-pot. I bought this to use at home and am very satisfied.
