Matfer or Vollrath stock pots?

6fthook | Jan 14, 2012 05:33 PM


We are looking to get some stock pots for our first house, mainly 8-10qt, and are looking for opinions. We have been looking at the following lines:

Vollrath Optio

Matfer Excellence

Matfer Performance

All seem to be pretty much stainless steel with an aluminum base sandwiched between stainless steel. Only difference I see are the handles. Also, the Optio line is the cheapest, is there any benefits to go with either of the Matfer lines? If so, any difference between the Excellence/Performance lines?
