all-clad 6-qt 'saute pot'

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this or a strong opinion on its usefulness one way or the other. I like the idea of one pot doing the work of two as long as it can perform those tasks admirably. It has the diameter of a large saute pan (10-12") and is approximately the height of a 3-4 qt sauce pot. I was looking into saute pans when I came across this so my main concern would regard any drawbacks of having a saute pan that isn't as shallow as traditionally designed. Not having a large sauce pot, the ability to use it for dishes like curries would be a plus. Interestingly All-Clad has it priced below its comparably-sized saute pan.
thank you.

    This sauteuse in only 4 quarts, but I do use it as a saute pan and it's marvelous for braises and stews. And, unlike a pot, it's handsome enough to go directly from the oven to the table. I adore mine, and it can often be found for a good deal less than the price quoted here:

      I bought one of these pots at Marshalls at a really great price. I use it all the time now. I've made beans in it, stock, stew, soups, chicken dishes...

      I like it because it's just big enough and it has the long handle and the gripper on the other end making it easier to dump contents into a strainer and whatnot.

        I got rid of the largest saucier that All-Clad makes and got this 6qt deep saute instead and I love it. Williams-Sonoma had it at a great price which included the splatter screen. It's great for risotto and tons of other things.
