Viking 8 quart, 18/8 stainless steel pasta pot with strainer & steamer basket has durable riveted handles & 3 ply magnetic base. It works on induction, ceramic, gas & electric cooktops.
Viking 8 quart pasta pot construction
Viking pasta pot is made of high grade 18/8 stainless steel with aluminum core in its base for even heating. The base has external 18/0 magnetic stainless steel layer for induction compatibility.
It contains 18% of chromium content and 0 % of nickel content. Chromium is hard and corrosion resistant metal. Nickel enhances the hardness and rust resistance of stainless steel, but makes it non magnetic.
Since the base doesn’t contain the nickel, it’s more likely to rust without proper care. Make sure it’s dry to prevent spots and rust on the base.
It’s also smooth which makes it compatible with ceramic cooktops.
The pot has water level markings inside in quarts and liters. The heavy lid fits tight in the pot, strainer and the steamer. It doesn’t have a vent. It creates a good seal. It doesn’t let the steam escape, so food cooks quickly.
Unlike the strainer the steamer basket has only one handle in the middle that sits inside the basket. Since the steam stays inside the handle gets hot. When food is cooked, open the lid to release the steam, then use mittens to lift the basket.
The handles are large for comfortable lifting. They’re riveted for durability.
Viking stainless steel pasta pot works on all heat sources. It’s dishwasher safe. It’s designed in the USA and made in China. It’s well built for a long term use. Comes with limited lifetime warranty.
