4.4 / 5.0107 ReviewsWorks 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.December 24, 2018Purchased
1 month agoWould not even use as a canning potI 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.December 22, 2018Purchased

1 year agoExcellent tool for home brewingI already have a smaller pot, but I find having alternatives allows chilling, leveling, boiling, and sanitizing much faster and easier if I can use multiple containers. Give me this pot, a fermenter, and a secondary fermenter and I can have a constant rotation of beers ready to keg or bottle.February 2, 2017Purchased

over 2 years agoAugust 2, 2016Boiling NightmareI always like filling my brew pot as high as possible and then keeping a close eye on it during the boil. Unfortunately that is not a good idea with this pot. The rivets that hold the handles in place are a couple inches below the rim, and leak like sieve. I spent half my boil carefully trying to clean the wort off my stovetop without setting the rag on fire from the burner. DO NOT BUYApril 21, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesKyle,
Thanks for the review and sorry for the trouble. While I don't recommend filling a kettle all the way up to the rivets for boiling, the rivets certainly shouldn't leak. If the kettle will not work out for you I'd be happy to either replace it or refund you for the kettle. Please let me know which option you prefer.
Cheers!November 2, 2016Midwest Supplies5 Gal. Economy Stainless Steel Brewing PotExcellent kettle added a drain valve and temp. probeMarch 23, 2016Good Pot for the PriceI bought this kettle back in 2011 with my equipment kit after 4 years still use it periodically to heat water. If you are just a beginner in this hobby as I was I would not be afraid to purchase this kettle. It will do the job and it will make beer, you will eventually upgrade this kettle, if you can do it now I would recommend a better kettle.March 6, 2016
