Let's now discuss some user experience and try to find out the drawbacks of this stockpot. Keep reading to know the facts.
Cooking any sauce or soups has been really comfortable for the user by the help of this stockpot. Whether it's chicken broth or vegetable, you will find this pot efficient every time. 2 chickens can easily be poured into it to get the broth. Also, it has a better heat circulation because of the use of aluminum, so it cooks quicker.
We found that the manufacturer could have done something better with the handles. Strong Bakelite handles would do better when you need to carry the pot while it's hot. The handles are close to the main frame of the pot so there is a chance to burn your fingers. Also, the handle is not that big to hold it comfortably even with the best potholders. That’s where they messed up the design. Also, we found a customer who complained about the material of the pot. The user got rashes which is a prescribed medical condition for him. So if it’s true, then it needs to be improved. Other than these problems it has mostly given a satisfactory performance and people have liked it for cooking the liquid dishes.
2. Ease of use
The shining mirror finish of the outer portion of the pot gives the feel of using new cooking pot after several uses. The mirror finish is also helpful to keep the pot clean. The pot is dishwasher safe, so no matter what kind of cooking you do with it washing is always quick and simple.
