Use your imagination!
This cute little pot will surprise you with all the cooking jobs it can do! Love the lid and the pouring spouts. The basket is just begging for you to think of ways to use it! Tonight for dinner for two it was used for baby red potatoes, pearl onions and green beans. Lift the basket, dump into a serving bowl and there you have it! The uses, well I'm still counting the ways . . . .

I have lots of cupboard space and I wanted it for a specific use, but I did wait for it to go on sale. Alternatively, if you have a tiny kitchen for one person, this could be very useful because you could use it with or without the basket. I do like the locking lid.

Great idea.
Here's the caveat. It takes FOREVER to bring water to a boil. That being said, if you have time to wait or can start it earlier than usual it works well and makes use of that often unused tiny burner(who thought that was a good idea anyway?) I did boil one dozen eggs for Easter and it was great to have the basket.
Guess I'm on the fence as to whether it's worth it. Thankfully I got mine on sale.

The idea is good but not very practical. I will keep it cause the design is cute and I can use the indide container separate.

Great pot
Works great. Used it for Easter for eggs and asparagus so far. That burner on the back of my induction cooktop was rarely used. Now it is.

Frances G on May 19, 2019
Can this be used on an induction cooktop?
Sharon G on Aug 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be.
I can't quite figure out how large it is. How many ears of corn will it cook at one time, a pound of pasta, a dozen eggs? Will it do all of these things?
Elaine G on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depending on the size of the corn,. 2-4 max. I did a dozen extra large eggs in it no problem, but remember the size of the eggs makes a difference. You also want make sure you have room for water expansion without it bubbling over. I would not fill above 3/4 when boiling eggs. Plus it depends on how you cook your eggs, there are many methods out there. In fact, to hard boil an egg appropriately you should never let the water go to a full boil. My experience showed that eggs cooked faster in this pot.
what part is aluminum? Is it appropriate if one is trying to avoid aluminum pots because of leeching?
mary s on Mar 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Correction, the description says there is aluminum in the base. The aluminum part doesn't touch your food. The interior is all steel. In fact, the aluminum base must be all clad in steel because the pot heats up on my induction stove too.
Is this pot suitable for induction cooktop?
Andrew M on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, works great on induction, that is what I use it on.
How would you use it for Asparagus and how much water would be suitable for it? How long should it take and wouldn't it fall through the holes?
A shopper on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depends upon the diameter, length, and number of asparagus stalks and how well done and what color you want them.
Use a larger amount of water, about 1 1/2 to 2 cups, bring it to a boil before you add the basket containing the asparagus, leave the pot uncovered, lower the heat.. Pull the basket up frequently to test for doneness (using a paring knife which should easily enter, but not easily exit, the lower part of the stalk.) Remove when slightly underdone as it will continue to cook and over cooked asparagus will "lose its head"
Are there any instructions, tips, recipes, hints or ANYTHING that can be helpful in using this pan?
Linda D on Aug 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I make the best ice tea by filling it up with water, putting 4 sweet and low sugars, bringing to a boil for 25 minutes and then sticking a family size tea bag in for 15 minutes. Put in large jug and let it cool. Been doing this for years.
How do you cook pasta and hard boiled eggs in this pan? I love it for steaming corn but can't sort out how to cook pasta and eggs.
Patty R on Sep 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To hardboil eggs I first get the water to a hard boil letting the eggs warm up out of the frig while it comes to a boil. Adds eggs slowly with a slotted spoon and then slowly turn down heat until it is barely boiling ( lid off). Watch it for a little while to make sure it is barely boiling. Cook for 20 minutes at barely boiling temperature. Remove basket and dump out all hot water. Return to basket to the pan and run cold water over eggs until cool. Eggs yolks will be all a creamy yellow with no green.
Thanks for your answers re the eggs and pasta, but my main question is how much water to put into the pot both for the eggs and the pasta?
Patty R on Sep 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For the pasta about 3/4 full of water, eggs just cover the eggs by an inch.
Is this the Kuhn Rikon one? Does it have measure marks on the inside? And does it come with a silicone trivet? Thnx
A shopper on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello. It is Sur La Table Brand. Yes, it has measure marks on the inside. No, it does not come with a silicone trivet.
Is the red handle riveted or welded to the pot?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The handle on the glass lid has two rivets/bolts, the handle on the pot is welded, so the inside of the pot is smooth.
What is the weight of the pot? How heavy is the gauge of the stainless? Is the aluminum covered by stainless?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only question I can answer is the pot, lid and basket weigh 2 lbs 9 oz. I don't have the insert anymore. You
might have to contact Sur La Table for the other two answers.
Will this pot work on an induction stove? Aluminum and stainless steel are not magnetic, which is required for an induction stove.
Claire G on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It works well on induction cook-tops. I have the pot and an induction cook-top and love them both.
The instructions say remove triviet from pot before palcing on stove - what are they talking about? Nothing seems removable besides basket and lid? thanks!
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The trivet they are referring to is the basket.
Can you use this pot without the basket?
maddie on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely, have used the 4th burner pot for many things, I needed to conserve space because my other burners were being used so I warmed some homemade soup in this and instead of ladling out the soup I just poured it out. Just last week I used it to serve ice tea, I just don't know what I did without the 4th burner.
Are you able to can in this pot?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why you couldn't can in it. Would actually be great if you did a small batch of something and didn't want to drag out the giant canning kettle.
Hi Everyone, I have this pot and would like ideas on how to use it. I see above for hard boiled eggs and veggies. Anything else? Can you share a specific method you use for hard boiled eggs? Thanks
A shopper on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pack all the eggs into the pot...cover with water...bring to a rolling boil...turn off heat, put lid on, and let the eggs cook to perfection for 15 min...use cold water to stop the cooking...perfection every time.
I would like to confirm that the base is exposed aluminum versus aluminum encapsulated in stainless steel. The manual for my ceramic cooktop says not to use aluminum cookware, but this looks like a pot that would otherwise be really useful to me. Can someone verify whether the aluminum is encapsulated in steel or exposed in such a way that it would come into contact with the cooking surface?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is aluminum encapsulated in steel. Amazing pot. I love it!
I gather this is 10.5" tall, what is the inside diameter of this pot?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The pot is actually 8" tall (without the lid). The diameter is 7" across the top. The insert is 7" tall and 6" across the top. It's a great little pot. You can easily boil over a dozen eggs at one time, and I find they come out better than when I use a regular sauce pan. I love this pot! Hope this helps.
Can this pot be used for deep frying?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have this pot and I would not recommend this for deep fry. The vertical structure and thinner wall, it doesn’t retain heat like a more shallow or thicker pot might. I’ve found this pot great for steaming, making soup or bone broth but not for pasta or frying.
Is this tall enough to fit ribs?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as they are pretty small ... no more than 1 or 1.5 in wide and 7 or 8 in. long. 7-8 short ribs would be fine. Good idea on using this pot to boil ribs!
Does this pot work with induction stove tops?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It works great on an induction cooktop. It’s the perfect go-to pot—-especially for cooking asparagus, a few ears of corn, and pasta noodles.
Can you cook spaghetti in this? Will
It come out of basket? If not, what kind of pasta can you cook?
Dolly77 on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure you could cook spaghetti or any other thin pasta in the pot alone. You couldn't be able to utilize the basket, because the spaghetti would just fall through it. I use my multi-function pot (and basket) to cook corn on the cob, asparagus, and other veggies. I get the water to a boiling point, and then drop the basket in.
Would this be tall enough to cook crab legs?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This pot is 8 inches tall. If your referring to snowcrab legs....I don't think you would be able to stand them upright whole. But if you bent them in half or broke them . Hope this helped.
Fry with it?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely NO
Does it only come in red?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As far as I know, it only comes in red. I would buy it in any color, because it is such a handy pot to have.
