Actual height on pot received is 17.75". Taller than stated. Unfortunately this means it does not fit between my stove and microwave as it would have been real close at the stated height.
Tested (by opening microwave door to allow height) and does work on induction stove as Q & A stated.
Feels excellent. Very high quality.
Got this 8 Gallon brew kettle to as my second kettle. I have a 15 G Blichman for 10 gallons batches, but I wanted something lighter and easier for 5 gallon batches. It is really nice, super easy to clean and to brew with. I am loving it. I totally recommend it!
Cheers & Go Brew!

I'm sure the brand is good - when we unpacked it everything was there and as described. It was purchased as a gift, however, and was quite embarrassing. My son (the recipient) put together a batch of mead the day I delivered it to him and, as it was cooking, we noticed the mixture seeping out of two places - not noticeable until then.

I purchased the Bayou Classic 8-gallon Stainless Steel Stockpot with Spigot looking for an economical stockpot for home brewing, after searching the net, I found that Overstock was once again the most reasonably priced.
The Bayou Classic 8-gallon Stainless Steel Stockpot with Spigot seemed to fit my current needs without spending 3 times as much on most home brew websites.
I was very surprised to see the quality of the stockpot, not to mention the convenient side markings in gallon & quart measurements and a lower indentation for supporting trays and false bottoms!
The stockpot doesn't "bow" or "flex" when filled, like many other economy rated stockpots, I highly recommend this stockpot!!!

I want to cook large amounts of tomato sauce at home for pasta, rice, stews and whatever. Can I fill my jars through the spigot instead of using a funnel? Or is only for liquid staff like beer?
I cannot wait too long for your reply. I need to buy at least one stock pot quickly.
