I use an old granite ware blue stock pot that was my grandma's. I have never had a problem with things sticking in it.

Care to part with it? I'll pay the shipping. I like older cookware and bakeware because it was made so well. Just yesterday I picked up 7 bread pans from an old school cafeteria; 12-3/4" x 4" x 2-1/2" deep for FREE!

I'm feeling fairly psychic right now!

I'd love to help you Joe, but we have one 35-year-old Calphalon piece and several Revere Ware pieces that are nearly 50-years-old that are still going strong. All of them have served us so well we've never felt the need to look for new ones. Best wishes on your search.

The calphalon pot is a fine stock pot; it is thick metal, hard anodized to be non reactive, and at a good price. I have one and it has served me well for many years now.

Joe, when you're at Sam's Club checking out the half sheet pans, look for a hard anodized stockpot as well. Their Member's Mark products have been highly regarded.

Check out Macy's. Couple of years ago I picked up an excellent SS 16 qt pot there for $20 bucks. Right now might be a good time to check.

Unless there is a sale going on, what you can get for $50 in 2008/9 is probably going to stick.

I would go with a stock pot from the restaurant supply store. It will last the rest of your life, but I believe I paid $50 for mine around 25 years ago...

(Just made soup in it tonight. Nothing sticks, even after all these years. It's Duraware.

You gonna use all of those? I've been trying to figure out where to get loaf pans of that size. I would gladly buy up to 4 of them from you if you can spare any.

No Way would I part with it. I fought many cousins/cousin's wifes for this pan and I have it in my will that it goes to my niece!
