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.

The Vigor 20 qt stock pot is a great value for the money. It a professional grade pot with a heavy thick bottom that holds heat very well. The lid matches the pots quality and fits securely. This pot and lid is my go to every time I cook for a large crowd.

from The Grizzly Grill on

We needed a larger stock pot and thought this looked like an option. There are so many sizes to choose from it took some time before settling on the 20 quart. Key factor was the size of the base and the largest size of our induction cooktop. It is perfection! Great quality material and workmanship. Sleek and well-designed handles and lid. Wonderful addition to our cookware!


I bought this for cheese making- the heavy base allows for even heating if I use it on top of my stove. Also great when I use it with the soups vide.


Significantly better than an aluminum stock pan. We've owned this for months and it has no visible wear. It cleans easy and things don't stick too bad to it. You get what you pay for but if you are looking for a simple stock pan, use this one at 20 quarts.

from Galaxy Rune on

I love the 20 quart heavy duty stainless steel pot. I make bone broth for soup base and for our Aussie. This pan makes it worth the effort.. Plenty of room for bones and water so there is plenty of stock for the freezer. The pot cooks the bones for over 24 hours, stove-top and in the oven and shines up like new when cleaned. With the flat base, fits my burners very efficiently. Highly recommend this pot.

from Mom, Chief cook and bottle washer! on

For sure it is big and heavy, but at the same time it works very well. And don't forget it is NSF approved, so I definitely recommend it!

My largest pot before purchasing this one was a 5 quart dutch oven. I've been desperate for a large pot because I'm always meal prepping, but I didn't want to buy a cheap flimsy pot, and I also didn't want to spend a ton of money on a high quality pot. This gives me the best of both worlds. The material is extremely thick and heavy duty, but it was extremely affordable. I was also worried it would be too big for my kitchen, but it fits on my stove top perfectly.


This heavy duty bad boy is extremely durable, and resistant to drops. It comes in handy when we need to prep a massive amount of kale, and is useful for ice bathing with the china cap.


I love this pot! I wanted a stock pot with high sides to make large batches of Sunday gravy. The bottom of the pot is thick which allows even distribution of heat. It did not burn or stick to the bottom like pots I’ve used in the past. The quality of this pot is top notch!


I desperately needed something bigger than your standard ‘at hime’ pot size, but I was also concerned about it fitting well on my range. This fits the bill!! It’s also not too unwieldy to be washed in my kitchen sink. Solid construction!


This stock pot is a great item. We use it constantly and our kitchen staff loves it. It is priced perfectly for this type of item.

from Cuozzo Corp. on

Love this pot! Hoping to replace my aluminum cookware with these eventually, great price, good weight, the lid is nice as well. It scrubs up easily, we use it almost every day and it's holding up great, looks like it will last a long time even with heavy use.

from LSCA on

This is the best pot! Sturdy and heavy duty. Works well with my induction burner. Handles don't get hot. Great price for such a solid product.


Good quality stainless steel pot, I needed something that would work on induction and also be durable for longterm use, I don't like using aluminum pots and pans because they are hard to clean and tend to warp over time.

from Rakki Ventures on

This is truly a heavy duty pot. Looks great straight out of the box and stayed that way. Great value for the quality. We've ordered a few more since our first purchase.

from Carine O. on

A heavy duty stock pot is always needed in a kitchen! We are very happy with this model. Heavy duty, looks nice, and lid fits well.


This 20 QT heavy duty stainless steel pot (with cover) makes a great addition to any kitchen. Perfect for cooking bulk pastas, or mixing sauces.


I was looking for a nice, heavy duty stock pot that I can make soup in. I am an amateur home cook who loves to entertain and feed my family and friends so I needed something that was big enough to feed them. We had my family over for some Tortilla Soup and this pot easily fed 20 people with it. Not only is it large but it is very nice and very well made. Who cares if it's made in China. The point is it is made very well and is a bargain for a pot of this size and quality. The bottom is very heavy duty which explains why it distributes heat evenly so well. Don't even bother looking for a pot like this at other competitors because you will pay 3 times as much for one.


wow! this thing is a beast. so solid and heavy. the clad bottom is great and its large enough to handle almost anything i need it to. compared to other stores, this price is a steal.


This is a great all around stock pot. Snug fitting lid and heavy bottom make it a great value. A must have for any professional or busy home kitchen.
