Thin... and the rivits leak on the handles. Don’t fill it past handles and your good. Also don’t hold/lift by the handles because those things feel like they will pop off when holding 4+gallons of weight.
It could not have been better, drilled a bunch of 1/16 holes in the bottom, it fits in the brew pot and the handles stop it from falling in, so is a good mash tune.
Great pot for the price. It does everything I need from a pot
Works great, have used it for two batches so far. I have to move it around on the glass stove top to keep my boil going, perhaps poor surface contact. Will probably work better on a gas stove.
I would like to say “you get what you pay for” as a way of justifying this but given that I went to Home Goods and found a similar priced 5 gal stock pot with a small side dent that was 5 ply induction ready bottom with a glass top and heat proof padded handles I just can’t. This thing is so cheaply made that you will get burn marks on the bottom. It is induction “capable” but I’d hardly say ready. It’s such a poor conductor of heat that you pretty much have to have the lid on to keep the temp up. Do yourself a favor. If you are like me and we’re looking for a boil pot that you could do 5 gal extracts in while taking your time to research, plan and save for your all-grain equipment then hit up a place like home goods or other clearing house or outlet store you might spend 10 to 20 dollars more for a pot that is light years better than this one. I’d bet there is maybe 5 dollars in cost on this thing. Seriously.
