This Multi-Cooker is the ultimate kitchen multi-tasker. The 8‑quart stock pot is made of durable 18/8 stainless steel with a thick encapsulated base with aluminum core for quick, even heat distribution. The magnetic stainless steel base makes it safe to use on induction cooktops. The pasta insert drains pasta quickly and simply and also works great for straining homemade stocks. The steamer basket with bail-style handle is ideal for steaming vegetables and the clear glass tempered lid lets you monitor the cooking progress. Dishwasher safe.
