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.

Customer Reviews

Perfect for making industrial sized quantities of stock, soup, or stew. I bought it for brewing, which it works well for also. I will likely use it to cook tons of lobsters or crabs also. A great deal for such a giant pot!


Great economically priced heavy duty pot. Ours arrived with a small ding in the rim. Customer service was great and gave a partial credit to avoid sending this bulk item back through the mail.

This cooking pot with lid is an excellent product. Big enough to cook any kind of food. He cooks food perfectly. A bit heavy, but very resitant.

from LSBK on

We make 3 large batches of chili every week. This pot is sufficient to make about 100 portions of our chili. It is high quality. Highly recommend.

from Baxter Brewpub LLC on

It is awesome material and including welding steel that make the pot looks pretty and strong. We like to use it for our soups. It is work very good.

Wow!!! I am SO Impressed. I cannot stress the enough the value of this forty quart heavy duty stainless steel stock pot with cover. I can double my chili recipe and the stock pot is large enough I don’t have to worry about boil over concerns. Very easy to clean. Very well constructed and highly recommend.


Excellent pot! Nice heavy weight. I've used it twice to cook full pots of chili. It distributes heat very evenly and develops an excellent fond that releases with ease when appropriately deglazed. Handles are particularly sturdy. I did have a problem when using with a lower quality backyard burner which stained the bottom of the bottom with black soot. The inside looks great, but unfortunately the bottom seems to be holding on to the soot.


A great valued stock pot. Not the biggest but large enough for smaller sized restaurants. Great shape which seems to be slightly wider allows for both making of large quantity stocks but could possibly used for large braising.


This is much better than the cheap version we had. It is much thicker, for holding in the heat. The handles are sturdier as well. We will use it for all of our spaghetti dinners!

I'm a hard person to please and do not tend towards 5 stars simply because I expect a lot from stuff that costs a lot. Anyone paying $100 or so for a pot has the right to be really picky... that being said: Slightly more expensive than some, much better quality than most. We had a smaller, fancy dancy pot that melted down on our old electric range. Considering the 3 batches of 20 quarts of pickles this summer, and the upcoming 20 bushels of apples (estimate from our small orchard), I ordered this pot as something that will work on our new induction range. Unlike most of the other pots we researched, the handles are attached with rivets that go through the pot sidewalls, and we don't have to worry about the handles becoming loose or, like the "cheapy that cost almost the same", fall off. Yep. Big pots weigh a lot even when partially full, which is most of the time. Don't discount how the handles are attached. Don't bother making our mistakes with the cheapy ones. Get pots with handles that have mechanical fastening all the way through the sidewalls. I repeated this to make sure you don't make the same mistake we did. Do I have to repeat myself again? Make different mistakes. Weight Warning: it isn't a light pot when empty. It has too much material in the pot construction to be light. Don't kid yourself about using it. Watch your back! Lift with your legs! Don't fill it all the way up! This thing holds 10 gallons (US) of stuff!!!! Not sure why I'm writing about this: Go to a store nearby, if possible, and try to pick up a full 5 gallon can of paint. That is more or less what you are about to pick up when the pot is half full.... Again, learn from our mistakes... (ouch, sigh, etc.).... Heating is as even as other expensive brand pots that cost much more for smaller sizes... I'm not exaggerating. One of the nicest pots we own, regardless of price, and one of the most admired in our kitchen. In fact, I am ordering another for a friend from a small village in Africa. She wants to take it back for the holidays, filled with presents.... Read Less Read More

Started out our soup restaurant with a cheaper version and we regret it! This heavy duty pot distributes heat more evenly for a lot less clean up.


Fits on my induction, great for doing large batches of sauces and or stocks. Would rec to anyone looking for a large low profile stock pot.

from Talula's on

Needed a 40 qt stainless steel stock pot in a hurry and there it was. Received it fast and at a very reasonable price as well.
