the legs on the fryer look a little flimsy.

The legs do look a bit flimsy, but they are of an angle iron design. Probably just thin gauge steel. The turkey fryer I have only has 3 supporting legs and it is fairly thin gauge steel. They are not 90 degree angle; only have a slight bend in the middle. Having said that, I have done 12.5 gallon boils on it and it held just fine. If you are not sure, you can send the seller a question as to what gauge the stand is.

That is what i was thinking about the legs also. It looks like it will go for a good price though.

If that bid price hangs in there, it's a steal. I mean I paid $30 for just that pot at Walmart and felt it was a bargain.

Stainless pot for $30? What size? The best i found last night was a 22qt for ~$50. I bought one but havent opened it yet in case i find something else (possibly this fryer).
