I purchased tis for my husband whoes new hobby is home brewing beer. This Kettle is excellent quality- thick stainless steel. the only issue was that the thermometer and spigot had to be inserted. I would recommend, after installing the thermometer and spigot test for leaks with water in the pot. We started to brew only to have to empty the pot and reseal the spigot.

I have been upgrading my equipment since getting into home brewing. While I've done all grain, I am focusing on extract brewing. This pot allows me to keep everything in one place and eliminates all lifting or moving of the wort. Plus, the thermometer allows me to keep an eye on things easily. After dropping in the wort chiller and cooling, I can add the required water and use the spigot to drain to a fermenter. Simple as can be.
The pot is much heavier than my prior one and has a solid, 5mm thick aluminum plate which helps distribute heat evenly. Very well made!
DONT USE THE BALL VALVE included in this product. It has some sort of grease in it that will ruin your beer. No matter what I do i cannot get the valve to stop reeking of grease.
The rest of the product seems to work fine, but you need to get yourselves a food grade valve on your own.
I had originally bought another brew kettle from a different vendor, but they didn't see fit to actually protect the kettle for shipping so it arrived damaged. Ordered this one instead. Firstly, it was double-boxed and arrived safe and sound. It was also much more strongly made than the other (non Overstock) item.
Brewed my first all-grain batch 2 weeks ago. Worked great - my only complaint is that the thermometer did not seem to change when I added 200 degree water to increase the mash temp even though a second thermometer did. It worked fine during a test boil and the boiling of the wort. so we'll see.
I just wish the box was big enough that I could store the pot in it, but once you install the spigot, it won't fit.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Um, silver like stainless steel should be
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems like nice sturdy construction

Why is this product not intended to be used with induction heating? It is made from stainless steel -- induction should work if a magnet attaches firmly to the base.answerplease on Apr 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello answerplease, According to the manufacturer, the combination of metals in the brew kettle's bottom is not conducive for use on an induction cooktop. You might want to consider purchasing an induction disc, which would sit between the cooktop and the pan so that you can use it.
