Default stainless steel pot question

my brewpot was getting kind of old and gross looking so i decided it was time to spend some money on a nice stainless steel pot (for extract brewing, partial boils). I was glancing over the "use and care" instructions and it says "To prevent warping, avoid sudden temperature changes such as immersing hot cookware in cod water." Since I use the ice bath method to cool, was was wondering if there is anything to this warning message? I am tempted to just ignore it and assume my pot will be fine.

You'll be fine. Remember your pot is full of hot liquid, so it's going to cool relatively slowly. If you can cool it fast enough to warp a pot, your process is much better than mine! They mean not to put an empty hot pot into cold water.

+1 Similarly, don't dump water into an empty red hot kettle that was left on a lit burner by mistake. It's better to let it cool slowly if possible.
