If it's worth your dollar is up to you, but if you ask us, with these heavy duty kettles, one should never need to think about buying a brew kettle again. Below are a few more reasons we recommend these kettles for brewing.
The tri-ply aluminum core base of this kettle aids in heat distribution, ensuring an even boil.
Another advantage is that you won't have to pour your wort into the home brew fermenter. Since these kettles feature a spigot at the bottom of the kettle, you can just attach some high-temperature tubing and let gravity do the work.
If you go with a modified kettle, you can add a brewing thermometer that will make it easy to monitor the temperature of the wort.
