This is the thinnest stainless steel pot I've ever encountered. 100% junk. The handles are very flimsy and are made from thin sheets bent into a round tube, flattened, riveted on, then bent over to form a handle. So flimsy that in fact the handle broke off the first time I used it while carrying 3 gallons of water from the inside sink to my outside bbq burner. Also, as others have noted, the sticker is almost impossible to remove without a harsh solvent to remove the gunk. If I were you I'd buy an encapsulated bottom stainless pot that is made from thicker metal, has solid handles and is actually usable.

I just received this pot. I was surprised by how light weight it is. For the price, it is fine but I wouldn't recommend buying it as it is flimsy. Mine was even dirty on the inside. There is a big sticker on the outside that does not come off. It is really a piece of junk. I think it will suit my needs, hopefully it's good enough to boil water in. Wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't even hold up for that purpose. I have gotten much better pots at TJ Max for similar price, unfortunately they are not quite as large as this one. I need 12+ quart.

I do 5 gallon batched partial extract brew this pot works well for me its thin walled and cheap but you knew it was going to be a cheap pot when you found it for under $20 it wont cure cancer or perform any other miracles people seem to think cheap items should but it works very well as a pot for cooking things. On a side note the kids tell me the lid makes a great captain america shield however I wouldn't expect it to actually stop bullets or fend off a rogue spear.

the other reviewers are mostly right
- it's thin
- has a big sticker on the outside (which I managed to remove with some soaking)
- it was pretty dirty - just from manufacturing i think.

buttt... I bought this thing for homebrewing and is PERFECT for this use.

The pot does not hold 16 qts, it might be 14 if filled to the rim. If the pot is filled to the level of the handles, liquid will seep out of the bolt holes. At this price, my expectations were pretty low, but I would have expected the basic ability to hold the advertised volume.

Note: This stock pot is only 14 quarts, NOT 16; and only 12 of which are actually usable. I sent Amazon an email from which they are `looking into it'. I expect the description to soon change so I'll hold off on a -1 star for now.

First off, what do people expect for a $14.99 stainless steel stock pot with a lid!?!

Yes, it's very thin metal and yes there is a sticker on it that is bonded through nuclear fusion but with some elbow grease, a window scraper/razor it can be removed. Any leftover will come off by soaking in oxiclean-free for a few hours.

I'm using this pot to heat strike water (and water to preheat my MLT/cooler) that I use to brew all-grain beer. The handles are strong enough to lift 2.5 - 3 gallons of water though I wouldn't try it with hot to boiling water (be safe out there!). I also haven't filled it to the full 14 quart capacity as it might leak through the handles (hence 12 qt's usable IMHO). I do a continuous sparge so after taking a gallon out and putting it in my MLT, I add a gallon to the pot to reheat as the sparge does its thing (the remaining hot 2 gallons in the pot quickly heat the third I place in.)

If you want hot water for AG brewing, this is a very good, cheap choice and I'd recommend it. It heats fairly quickly on a medium-high btu flame (I also got a 2 gallon boil easily on an electric kitchen stove.) I would not use this as an MLT or for boiling wort!

If you want to make light stocks or broths (at max 3-gal), this is a good, cheap, possible choice.

I wouldn't recommend this for thick soups, pasta (might not keep a consistent temp), roux's, or anything heavy / creamy. For that, pony up and get yourself a heavy, 3-layer-bottom SS pot.

I bought this soley for homebrewing and it works like a charm. Nothing fancy but a solid piece of kitchen equiptment nonetheless. I'm sure it would do just fine for making soups and stocks as well.

After reading some of the more negative reviews, I was hesitant to purchase this product. I decided to give the 16 quart pot a chance because it was so cheap. I was pleasantly surprised with what showed up on my doorstep. I use this pot strictly for dyeing, not cooking food. It's very practical. I require it to hold about 3-3.5 gallons of water and yarn or wool at a simmer for several hours at a time. Although it may be thinner than what people were expecting, I was expecting a tin can, so it turned out to be far sturdier than I originally imagined. The sticker will not come off, as many people have mentioned, but I'm not paying for it to look pretty. All in all, the best deal around for a pot this size.
