This 32 quart .030" thickness 200 grade stainless pot features a ½" nickel plated brass ball valve. The ball valve features weldless attachment via a lock nut and silicone washer, and a 1/2" NPT outlet to accept hose barbs (recommended, see links below). Includes pictured stainless steel matching lid. 13½" tall, 14½" diameter. Not recommended for glass top electric stoves (traditional burner electric stoves work, as do all gas stoves).
The valve also features 3/8" NPT female threads on the interior to accept the optional Brewer's Edge KettleScreen stainless filter screen. The KettleScreen functions as a screen for mashing, and removing whole hops from the boil (it tends to get clogged with large amounts of pellet hops).
We have tested this on an induction cooktop, and found that an inexpensive 1800 Watt Duxtop brand induction cooktop got 6 gallons boiling in about 90 minutes. So this will work with an induction cooktop, but we would recommend more than 1800 watts for best performance.
