When cooking, stewing, or boiling large quanties of food on the stove, it's hard to beat the way a stockpot works. This 22 quart stainless steel stock pot with lid from MIU FRANCE is a workhorse in the kitchen. It is made from heavyweight 18/10 stainless steel with a tri-ply bottom for even heat distribution. The bottom is impact bonded layers of stainless steel on the outside with aluminum sandwiched in between. Strong cast stainless handles are riveted to each side of the pan and also on the lid. The lid is also made from the same 18/10 stainless as the pan. The outside of the pan is polished to a mirror finish. It can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
