Thin And Light... But It Works.
on May 19, 2013
On a whim, I decided to do a crawfish boil and needed a large enough pot to handle ten to twelve pounds of mudbugs, potatoes, corn and sausage. This pot was the perfect size.
Having cooked for the better part of my life, I know that when buying pots and pans, you get what you pay for and this pot is definitely no exception and I will review and rate it for what it is. The good news is, I expected it to be thin and cheap going in, so I wasn't too disappointed. When the pot arrived, there were a couple dents in it, but nothing a little hammer couldn't knock back out. The lid had a couple bends along the edge as well, but was easy to bend back into shape. The pot and steam insert were both covered in aluminum dust so be sure to give them a good washing before first use.
Once I got the pot cleaned, straight to the burner it went. The light weight pot is perfect for seafood and mudbug boils and it worked great. Given the thin gauge of the aluminum, I would not use this pot for anything other than boils or maybe a fry pot. Definitely not built for stews and chili, unless you plan on standing and stirring the entire cook.
