These deep pots nest inside one another and include three different sizes for all your kitchen cooking needs. Made of stainless steel, the stockpots include an 8-, 12- and 16-quart. Use the smaller one for sauces and soups and the larger one when cooking for a crowd - a big batch of seafood chowder or a spicy, Southwestern chili. A lid is included with each pot.
