After visiting 4 different shops and two Hypermarkets, I was becoming extremely frustrated. The pots I saw were either flimsy and expensive, Teflon coated and expensive, or just downright outrageously expensive.
I work in Eastern Europe with victims of child-trafficking. Our homes have faced an incredible rise in numbers this past year and it has become a severe struggle to feed so many with a kitchen as small as you might find in a bedsit! I needed to find sturdy and sizeable kitchenware, within a reasonable budget...especially as I needed several items; hence my Amazon search.
My eleven-litre soup pots arrived today. Amazing by the very fact I only placed the order less than 48 hours ago! When I was handed the box by the delivery service, I was at first confused as the box was rather heavy. I was certain it was something else I ordered through Amazon, perhaps books. When I opened the box I was amazed to fine such a highly polished, solid, pot with a matching glass lid. The handles are spot-welded to the pot, in multiple places, which ensures additional sturdiness. The bottom has a heavy base which helps to evenly distribute heat.
At such a reasonable price, it simply can't be beat! I even tried locating used industrial or hotel kitchenware, yet the prices were unbelievably high. So pound-for-pound, I cannot be more delighted with my purchase. Without a doubt I'll be buying more of this line!
the pot itself was great and great value1 but, it was delivered with a large dent on one side and I could not change it for another as there were no more in stock given the recewnt publicity about the way goods purchased online are handled when being delivered I suggest Amazon has some quality assurance checks to make.The dent may make shorten the time it can be used.
Before buying this stockpot I used an ancient enamel one to make batches of chilli, curry, stews etc. When that one fell apart I decided on this pot which is just what I was looking for. Perfect size for making freezer batches, easy to clean and looks good when not in use!! I would recommend this pot to anyone looking for a similar product.
