Default Anyone use this pot?

http://morebeer.com/view_product/15758/102211

So far, its the cheapest I've found. Anyone have any experience with it. I am pretty reluctant to spend 300$ on a pot, especially since I'm considering buying a counterflow chiller as well. Is the polarware pot really worth the extra 150$?

The sides are kind of thin , but the bottom is good. It is a rolled and welded kettle, so , if that bothers you, then you won't like it. It serves the porpose for a 10 gal. boil kettle in my brewery very well. Sorry, I don't know about the Polar Ware option.

Good luck.........

I have 3 of these (it looks like the same ones that came with my sculpture I bought 7 years ago). They work very well. The bottom is a little thin compared to a keggle, but I have not had any scorching issues during the boil. I have had a scorch on my MLT with is direct fired, but I'll blame operator error before I blame the pot. They are nice kettles and I'm very happy with them.
