The insert, part of the Contemporary Nonstick line, fits comfortably in the 8.5 Qt Strauss Tango Stockpot. It features a hard-anodized stainless-steel exterior and nonstick interior to combine durability and performance in a single package. It's also an attractive accompaniment, giving your cooking space a flair normally reserved for professional kitchens. The insert includes a lifetime warranty.
