This Brewer's Edge pot features organ welded construction, .031” thickness 210 grade welded stainless construction, and a ½” female NPT port for a thermometer that comes plugged with a stainless plug. The handles are welded on.
These are a great value for the money. This pot is too large to use on a home stove, an outdoor burner is recommended. Not recommended for use on an induction stove. 19½” tall, 18" wide.

Great Product, Sturdy!
Have had mine going on three years and it has seen many a brew! Still holding up strong and works great. I will buy this again when/if needed.
large and versatile. As said before, if you don't abuse it this thing will serve you well. 15 gallons is okay, but you will want to watch for boilovers.
For those looking to move up to 10 or even 15 gallon batches (15 gal is pushing it), this is the best value out there. It is thinner than most other pots but for the price, you can't expect to have a bullet-proof kettle. I converted mine to an e-kettle, and when drilling the hole for the element with a step drill, the metal tended to roll back on itself (not like the clean cut you should get with a larger gauge metal). However, it still took the weld less fitted element without any leaks. just take good care of it and don't throw it around the garage and it will serve you well.
Best Value I've Found
This brew kettle is way cheaper than other stainless kettles this size. The pot has a small dent where the thermometer port is located, and the lid is a little flimsy, as the description says, but neither matter. This pot is the best value I have found, and if I highly recommend it. It is great for doing outdoor brewing on a propane burner, and when doing 5 gallon batches in this large pot, it is impossible to have boil-overs. Highly recommended!
