Default Kettles as Fermenters

Has anyone used a economy stainless kettle with a hole drilled on top for a airlock as a fermenter. If so how did it work? I was thinking its cheaper than the conical fermenters and you can get bigger kettles to hold more beer.

LonnyMac does this I believe, he is the creator of the Brutus 10.
