I'm looking at stock pots in the 40-quart range, trying to find one that is as inexpensive as possible, but not too cheaply made. I found this aluminum model that is 4 mm thick for $44: http://www.webstaurantstore.com/40-q.../40760378.html
I don't really have a sense of how thick 4 mm is in terms of the feel of the pot. Anybody have a similar one? This site also has a heavier duty aluminum 40-quart pot listed that is 6 mm thick for $67. I'd rather pay a bit more if 4 mm is too flimsy, but I'd obviously rather not spend the extra bucks if 4 mm is good enough. Thoughts?
