I thought yours wasn't tri-ply. I'm so confused!

I wasn't clear.

There are basically two categorues of SS cookware.

First there's the All-Clad type in which the entire pot, from top to bottom, is made of a three layer material with a layer of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless. This is commonly referred to as tri-ply construction.

Second, there is cookware that is made with a single ply of SS throughout with the addition of a thick disk permanently bonded to the bottom. The disk is SS on the outside with a thick layer of aluminum inside.

The second looks like what you and I have with the Tramontana stock pots.

I'm sure you'll enjoy your pot as I do mine. It does everything that's important for a utensil of this type.

Yeah, before this one my biggest pot was 3.5 qts! Except for the crockpot, and the turkey fryer pot.
