From whisking up an egg-based sabayon to heating up savory gravy, elite chefs depend on this commercial-grade double boiler for a variety of tasks. With the solid insert you can easily create a creamy hollandaise sauce or melt chocolate for fondue. Made of a hefty commercial-grade stainless steel, both the solid insert and stock pot are rust and corrosion resistant and will not chemically react with acidic food, making it perfect for heating up last night's spaghetti sauce. The stock pot has a tri-ply bottom with an aluminum core sandwiched between stainless steel for quick and even heating. Riveted for extra durability, the stainless steel handles allow for safe and secure transportation of the double boiler. This double boiler is available in two different sizes; use the 12 quart double boiler for entertaining large parties and the 8 quart for daily meals.
