Well, you asked for opinions on the DO so I thought I'd ask which type it was before I said anything.
I have a Tramontina 12-quart SS stockpot with a disk on the bottom and a glass lid. I use it for small batches of stock and large batches of sauce. It does a good job. No complaints.
If yours is similar in construction, I would expect good results from it.
