4.4 / 5.0103 ReviewsBest beginner pot you can buy!This pot is the best starter pot for extract brewing you can buy. Eventually you will want a bigger and more expensive pot but I wouldn't buy another to start with. Not the highest quality out there but for the price it is the best!April 22, 2013College Budget?Best brew pot for a college kids budget. It is a great value and is a great brew pot for those just getting started. Easy to clean._x000D__x000D_However, if you are looking for a high quality pot, look elsewhere. There is a reason this is called an economy pot.April 23, 2013Great for beginnersI've had this pot for a couple years now, as I got it with all of my other equipment when I first started brewing. I usually do 3.5 gal boils for my extracts, as that's about as much as I like to press my luck with boilovers. It has treated me very well. However, as I've stepped up my brewing game and got into doing partial-mash, I wish I had a larger pot. This is great for extract brewers not wanting to take up a lot of room for equipment, but be warned: you'll get addicted and find yourself wanting to upgrade! My advice would be to get the 7.5 gal from the start. Larger boils equal better beer.May 15, 2013Gets the Job doneGreat kettle for people starting to get into brewing. You get what you pay for. It is a sub par quality kettle but it gets the job done and i have no problems with mine. For the average extract brewer this is a great purchaseNovember 4, 2012Good first kettleThis was my first kettle, and I used it primarily for extract brewing on my stove. It did just fine for that, and continues to serve me well for small all grain BIAB batches that I use to test recipes._x000D__x000D_I have a glass cooktop, and haven't experienced any problems with this at all.November 14, 2012Good starting pointThis is a good kettle to start with. You'll need a bigger one if you want to move toward all grain but if you're doing anything else, it's just fine. When I think of economy I always think of cheap but the quality of this item does not seem it. It would be nice if it had a glass lid but for the price it doesn't matter. What is also really nice is that I have never seen a pot for this price. In the stores I've only been able to find them for 50+.May 31, 2013Worth it if you on a budgetThis pot is worth the money if you really looking for a cheaper pot and cant get a very big one. I reccomend just looking on the internet for at least a 10+ gallon pot if you have the space for it and are able to brew outdoors. It will make your life soo mich easier.June 18, 2013Gets the Job DoneThis pot gives plenty of room for brewing and cleans up easily afterwards. Can't ask for more than that. It is light-weight, but with 2-3 gallons of liquid, you don't want to add much weight when having to move it.September 9, 2013Good for beginnersThis is a good brewing pot for a beginner, it gets the job done, and is inexpensive compared to other brew pots. As others have said, it tends to warp a little, especially the lid while sanitizing. Overall worth it for a beginning brewer that is on a budget.December 4, 2012Great PurchaseGot it to replace a small brew pot and was a little worried about the quality due to the low cost. Worked great though. Some burning on the bottom of the pan, but electric burners make that difficult to avoid. One very nice thing about it was that the metal handles did not get hot even though the pot was hot.December 6, 2012

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersIs it completely stainless steel? No aluminium at all?Do these pots nest when stacked one on top of the other for storage?BEST ANSWER: Not really sure. I have different pots from different manufacturers and bought only but one of these. However, I am sure they probably due to some extent. It would be stupid not to design them to do that for storage and transportation purposes
