Default How big is this pot. Just purchased!

I found a pot that the guy said was stainless steel, he said it was 4- 5 gallons, he wasn't sure. I paid him 40.00 and took it home. I put 5 gallons of water in it and there is still 3 inches of space from the water to the rim.

The pot dimensions are 13.25 circ. x 11.0 high all Inner dimensions. Ballington 18/10 is all it says on bottom. does anyone have this same one? how does it work if so. I'm sure I can plan for .5 to 1 gallon for evaporation for a 60 minute boil. so this is cutting it close, but I'm pretty happy. It came with a glass top and has been used 3 times. I am assuming its a 24 quart, but I dont know how they measure. do they go to the rim?

You meant diameter, not circumference, right?

Usually pots are measured to the rim, not a given distance from the top. If you want to figure out how big the pot is try this: pi (x) radius squared (x) height. 6.62 squared is 43.85 square inches (x) 3.1416 = 137.88 (x) 11 = 1516.75 divided by 231= 6.56 gallons to the top edge
231 cubic inches in 1 gallon.
your pot is 26 quarts, I believe.

Default Thank you

when I wrote this i had been awake for 24 hours, now it has been about 35 since my head has seen a pillow, I meant diamater. and your equasion looks good. I do believe your numbers are acurate. I filled it with one more gallon and there was 1.25 inches left from the water to the top of the rim, so 26 quarts fits with room for another 3 or so, but there needs to be room for boil over. If pots are measured to the rim like you say. its a 29 quart. maybey 30 quart.

Even if you were bad at math......couldnt you just do the other obvious thing and measure out water into the pot to figure it out? I lose more and more hope for humanity every day. lol
