Vollrath cookware [split from Quebec board]

Would anyone indulge me in the virtues of this pot over others?

  1. Sturdy, well-made induction-capable brand common to commercial kitchens. I bought mine primarily because it was the least expensive induction-capable alternative for large stockpots > 16L.

      Thank you!

      Now which line would you recommend?

      1. re: Simon Patrice

        I bought Tribute because I needed a pot that would work on all induction surfaces that I had access to, and it's the one that did work on a Viking portable unit. The line depends on your needs and budget though sometimes shape and capacity will make certain decisions for you.

          Does SS make a big difference vs aluminum for a stock pot? I've been using a SS Paderno (the Canadian one) stock pot of around 8 quarts but want to upgrade to 16 quarts. Is SS worth the price difference?

            Not really; commercial kitchens will have plenty of aluminum. If however you have a habit of making large quantities of acidic liquids, you may want to reconsider though.

      2. Vollrath just bought out the Wearvever pots if your going aluminum they are better pots but seems like Vollrath is turning them into a lesser quality product.If going stainless Vollrath pots are good pots.If you want a real nice one the Centurion line from vollrath are real nice but $$$$
