Questions & Answers for Tramontina Tramontina 6-Quart Lock and Drain Pasta Pot

Question

Browning meat

I originally wanted a dutch oven but those weigh too much empty let alone with soup or stew inside. So I bought this with the hoping that I could brown beef in it for meat based soups and all-in-one spaghetti without having to brown the meat in separate pan first. Will this pot hold up to that? Thanks for any help!

You probably could, if it's a very small batch of meat and you don't crowd the pot - pieces should not touch. You'd also have to get it pretty hot and make sure the meat is dry before starting.

Unfortunately, this pan was not meant to be used on induction cooktops, and will only work on gas, electric and ceramic cooktops.

You would need something with a magnetic base in order to make the induction process work.

There is one item which may be close in function to the 6 Quart Lock and Drain, but is made with a different configuration. It is Tramontina's 4 Pc. 8 Quart Multi-cooker set (Item number 80126/527). It includes an 8 Quart stock pot, pasta insert, steamer and tempered glass lid.

It is made with a magnetic tri-ply base, and is induction ready. It is also compatible with gas, electric and ceramic cooktops, and is dishwasher-safe.

The open area in the draining lid does not have glass, as it conveniently allows you to stir and access your food, while cooking. The set includes a separate glass lid, which covers the draining attachment, if the food needs to be covered.

This 6 Quart Lock and Drain Pasta Pot (#001422441) is oven-safe at temperatures up to 350°F (176°C). Even though the handles and lid are oven-safe, they will get hot in the oven and on the stovetop, particularly gas stoves where an open flame is used. Therefore, please use protective mitts when handling hot cookware. DO NOT USE UNDER AN OVEN BROILER UNIT.

Also be sure to avoid exposing your glass lid to thermal shock. Here is some helpful information regarding thermal shock and tempered glass lids:

UNDERSTANDING TEMPERED GLASS LIDS

Industrial glass is tempered by a controlled thermal treatment process to increase its strength when compared with normal glass.

Tempering creates balanced internal stresses which cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards.

The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury. Under normal usage, and by following the instructions below, tempered glass lids are safer for use within household kitchens.

However, extra caution must be used when handling glass lids.

When cleaning a glass lid, do not use abrasive cleansers, steel wool or coarse scouring pads, as they may scratch the surface of the glass lid, which may cause breakage over time.

THERMAL SHOCK

Avoid sudden temperature changes such as placing a hot lid on a cold surface or immersing a hot lid in cold water.

Always let the lid cool before washing, as sudden temperature changes can break the glass.

Do not place a cold lid from the refrigerator directly in a heated oven or on a hot pan. Allow the lid to reach room temperature prior to use.

Immediately discontinue the use of a lid that has been damaged during transportation, accidentally dropped or shows signs of damage or scratching.

Continuing to use a damaged tempered glass lid may cause shattering without warning, leading to possible injuries to users or bystanders.

CAUTION:

Oven-safe up to 350°F (176°C).
Avoid sudden or severe temperature changes.
Do not immerse hot lid in cold water.
Thermal shock can cause a tempered glass lid to shatter.
Immediately discontinue use of damaged lid.

Question

Walmart---who enters the data on your products?

(1) Country of Origin is "USA or imported"? Which one, and if imported, what country?

(2) It should not have a W X L which are different, since it is circular. What are the actual dimensions, and the depth of the pot only (not adding steamer and lid)?

(1) Country of Origin is "USA or imported"? Which one, and if imported, what country?

ANSWER: The information is usually entered by someone working for the manufacturer. Ideally, this should state: Made in USA with Imported Accessories - as it is stated on the packaging. The Pasta Pot itself is Made in the USA, but the lid and lock and drain accessory are made in China. Although other parts are made in China, you will find the quality and performance to be exceptional. Tramontina requires its plant in China to follow the same strict regulations, processes and quality guidelines that their plants in the USA and Brazil use to manufacture cookware.

(2) It should not have a W X L which are different, since it is circular. What are the actual dimensions, and the depth of the pot only (not adding steamer and lid)?

ANSWER: The pot holds a capacity of 6 quarts, and the "L x W x H" is part of a standardized form that is filled out to provide information on the website. Even though the pan is circular, the would normally be the diameter. Because this has a "lock and drain" attachment, the width includes the grip area of the attachment. The length is measured from the end of one handle to the other, and the height represents the overall height of the pot with the lid in place.

- OVERALL Measurement: Product in Inches (L x W x H): 13.94 x 9.5 x 8.94
- BREAKDOWN of the measurements:
- Lock and Drain Attachment - total width including grip area = 9.5"
- Height of the Pot without the lid = 6.25"
- Diameter of the Pot = 8.875

We hope this information is helpful.

1) The data is normally entered by someone working for the manufacturer. Ideally, the country of origin should state: Made in USA, with Imported Accessories. The label on the packaging reflects this. In this particular case, the Pasta Pot itself, is Made in the USA, but the Lid and Lock and Drain unit are made in China. Although these pieces are made in China, you will find the quality and performance to be exceptional. Tramontina requires its plant in China to follow the same strict regulations, processes and quality guidelines that their plants in the USA and Brazil use to manufacture cookware.

2) Product in Inches (L x W x H): 13.94 x 9.5 x 8.94
The variables, L x W x H are part of a form that is sent out to everyone entering information for the site. Even though the pan is circular, we've used the diameter for the width of the pasta pot. The length (13.94") would probably be from the end of one handle to the other, the width (9.5") would be the diameter of the pot, and the height (8.94") would be the total height with the lid on the pot.

We hope that you will find this information helpful.

I don't have my pamphlet anymore but even if the pot could handle the oven heat I wouldn't advise it because when baking pasta you would probably be better off using something shallow and wide. I would not if it were me.
