The efficient shape of the Anolon Advanced Bronze Hard Anodized Nonstick 4-1/2-Quart Covered Tapered Stockpot is ideal for foods that cook slowly, like a fragrant, simmering marinara sauce created with fresh-picked Roma tomatoes and sweet Italian basil. The stockpot's heavy-duty hard-anodized construction promotes even and efficient heating, and the sleek and modern bronze nonstick exterior adds a timeless touch of style to any kitchen decor. Restaurant-quality DuPont Autograph® 2 nonstick interior is long lasting and metal utensil safe, and makes cleaning up effortless after preparing a hearty cannellini bean and turkey chili. Color-coordinated Anolon SureGrip® handles are dual riveted for extra strength and designed for a comfortable grasp. The break-resistant glass lid allows for constant monitoring of food while it cooks, locking in heat and moisture, and the stockpot is oven safe to 400°F. This essential stockpot is the perfect complement to all other pieces in the Anolon Advanced collections. With its elegant shape and sleek design, this Anolon Advanced Bronze Hard Anodized Nonstick 4-1/2-Quart Covered Tapered Stockpot is a graceful and efficient addition to the gourmet-quality kitchen. The unique, attractive flared shape and soft metallic tint provide a fresh alternative look to traditional gourmet cookware without sacrificing a speck of first-rate performance.
