I live alone, and I don't have a large freezer for storing leftovers.

Do I go with a 6 quart or 8 quart pot? Right now I just have a 1.5 quart saucepan and a 10 inch skillet.

get those square zip lock plastic containers to store or freeze stuff and maximize your use of space
>>
6 qt is pretty big. Go with 6 qt

Let me be a bit more specific. I have a micro fridge, so the freezer can barely hold anything. Generally things need to be refrigerated and eaten in a few days.

I'm thinking a Cuisinart Multiclad Pro. Do you think it worthwhile to get something like that over a Chef's Classic? $44 vs $62

It has a lifetime warrenty, so might as well go with the less expensive model.

I have a chef's classic 6qt and it works great.

Should that be a issue? I was more concerned about tri-ply vs. encapsulated base.
>>
>>7052617
I don't understand why you need a 6qt pan for storing leftovers. Throw out your hot pocket and pot pies then get you some glade freezer bags to put your left overs in.
>>
>>7053211
Jesus, go buy a used fridge somewhere for couple hundred bucks.
>>
>>7053242
I cook with the 6 quart pot. I wonder if that is large enough assuming I cannot store leftovers. I am not storing them in the fucking pot.

>>7053247
University.

>>7053249
Yeah i wouldn't get any bigger than 6qt if all you got is a cuc k fridge

The tri-ply pot can be used on an induction range.
>>
>>7053271
That alone might be worth the extra $20 to upgrade.

Would larger pots benefit from the tri-ply because the base might be larger than the heating element? That way the center of the pan isn't much hotter than the outer edges? Or am I just talking out my ass?
>>
>>7053277
I don't think so, because the base is designed to evenly distribute heat.

If the pot/saucepan was over flame and it the flame was going up the sides, then I think try-ply would make a huge difference.
>>
>>7053290
That seems to make sense. Looks like I'll be going with a 6 quart Chef's Classic unless somebody else wants to add something?
>>
>>7053297
Bought an 18qt yesterday for making stock.
