Default Scratches in brew kettle

I just received my new brew kettle(the last thing I need to start going all grain) It came with some pretty deep scratches in it though. It is stainless steel, should I send it back or will it be ok? I was going to brew this weekend. I don't mind the scratches if it is just an appearance thing. But could it screw up my beer?

Since you're going to be boiling things in that kettle, it'll be fine. Fire cleanses all.

It'll be fine but since it's brand new I would send it back.

Where are the scratches located? Is it a converted sanke keggle or pot?

It is a pot, they go down the inside of the pot from top to bottom.

Those wont be the only scratches it'll ever get, just use it.

If it was a sanke, I was going to suggest that you could try buffing them out. Pickles is right, it will likely get more scratches but deep ones right off the bat for something you bought as "new" wouldn't make me happy with the supplier. I'd like to be the one putting scratches in my own equipment.

This is my view.

Probably won't matter, but I don't take to paying good money for something with damage or defect.
