The handles are welded on. I guess this is good and bad. No worries about leaking rivets, but are the welds strong enough to lift 100+ pounds of hot wort?
It comes with a ball valve and all the hardware needed to mount it on the kettle. The mounting hardware also includes teflon tape and o-rings (silicon I think) which should help avoid leaks. As others have pointed out, the lubricant on the ball valve does not smell like it is food safe so I'll have to try cleaning it off. A small wrench is also included for tightening and removing the nuts that hold the ball valve in place. There is also a heat shield to protect the ball valve from direct flame.
My one concern is the single ply bottom. As I understand it that could mean uneven heat distribution and scorching. I'll update this review after I've completed a batch of beer.
OK, I brewed a 5 gallon batch last weekend and did not have any problems with scorching, even after an 80 minute boil.
One thing I had not considered is that my thermometer is not long enough to reach the wort when clipped onto the pot lip, so temperature readings require hand holding the thermometer. Other than that things went flawlessly. Next I need to try a 10 gallon batch.
I bought this kettle specifically for the ring indentation along the bottom that gives it the ability to hold a false bottom securely without any gaps around the edge. Amazon sells the kettle package with false bottom and bulkhead thermometer, but I found the false bottom sold separately from a different online retailer and a cheap threaded thermometer that, when combined with the kettle, made my DIY package cheaper than the Amazon package price by 20 bucks. I also got an Amazon warehouse deal that lowered the price another 15 bucks. I could not find any blemish/flaw whatsoever.
The included stainless ball valve is nice, but it does not have a silicon handle sleeve and gets extremely hot. Be careful when opening the valve during the boil.
Bottom line: if you're looking to step up to 10-12 gallon batches but don't want to break the bank on a large kettle, this is the way to go.
Internal graduation marks in gallons are nice and the heat shield they provide is a good feature. Valve woks ok but puts a little flex on the side wall when you crank it. This pot was a $100 less than some of the higher quality pots I was looking at but I guess you get what you pay for.
I realized I couldn't get a good gauge on mash temperature without dipping a thermometer in it, so I drilled a hole and put in a thermometer.
Then I realized my bags were burning on the bottom, so I got the false bottom.
I could have saved myself the trouble and gotten this same pot with the false bottom and thermometer.
As a pot it's pretty decent. It's sturdy, washes easily, the spigot doesn't leak. It's a handy stainless fermenter in a pinch, I drilled an airlock hole in the lid and wrapped in cling wrap to get it air tight.
Edit: I added quick disconnects from MoreBeer.com, cut off the "safety" from the spigot, and also added the bayou classic thermometer. I can't see why this wouldn't be the best value mash tun/boil kettle for the money. You will not find a better product. Most of us home brew folks don't mind tinkering and tweaking things, so it's not too big of a deal to fix the little things.

Scarcely two months and it has already pitted and has a leak. How does stainless steel rust?
