Jeez, that sounds great. They don't tell you the guage of stainless but it does have an aluminium clad bottom. It sounds like a winner to me.

If it is legit SS, then it seems like a good deal. However, having a 10g pot is worthless if you ever plan on doing 10 gallon batches. You'll need about 15g realistically, and so then you've got to think about a keggle instead. Might as well do it right the first time. And the price in the long run would be close.

Just my 2 pennies.

i know...its almost too good to be true (which usually means it is). the bottom is 4mm and the ones from morebeer etc are 5 mm. Its sounds like a solid deal...what do they mean by 'maximum magnetic conductivity for induction cooking' ?
and what is 'ant-corrosive' properties?

There is a link to this one at the bottom of the page:


http://www.instawares.com/detail.asp...7A18402B600120


Four dollars more, but it has the specs listed:

Our Master Cook stainless steel cookware is made of premium 18/8
stainless steel with "Sandwich" bottoms consisting of a 5mm thick
aluminum core wrapped by two layers of stainless steel.

This new design gives the stock pot super strength
and even heat distribution.

They may also be used with induction cookers,
presenting the highest quality of its kind.

sst-40 40 quart stock pot with cover.

117/8" high x 15 3/4" dia.

You guys pushing those keggles are worse then crack dealers!
your all probably right, but they are out of my budget for now, i just need something that will get me through untill i graduate school,(1 year) and then ill have enough money to get a system that will make Brewpastors look like a pickel-bucket and a balloon...

thanks that one is even better because my burner is 15 inches, and the other pot is 16...they only thing i noticed though was that the shipping weight is less for that one? thats why i figured it was lighter which logically means its crappier no? Though specs are the same as the polarware ones (i think) which is really good...i have a sandwiched ss pot now that is awesome as far as heat distribution is concerned...(its only 5.5. g's though)

Good catch on the difference in shipping weight. The one I linked to, is for some reason listed in the aluminum section (where the other one is not). The description clearly states stainless steel, though.


Home » Kitchen Supplies » Cookware » Stock Pots » Aluminum » 40 Quart » SST-40


Maybe they just goofed up on the weight because of that? They are also made by two different manufacturers.

Hmm.... who knows? lol
