Spike, as a vendor there's a fine line between defending your product and appeasing customers. Be willing to take one on the cheek and roll with it. Bomber is obviously very knowledgeable in this arena and would be an excellent ally.
This hobby seems to have no end to the education period which makes it both interesting and sometimes contentious.
Lot of words to say take it all in, sift out the wisdom and move forward.

It's cool Hoppy we resolved our differences... they are after all a great deal on kettles of that size. I just think our tempers got the best of us. He sells kettles, and I machine a lot of stainless alloys. There is probably a lot we could learn from each other.

Well, that's refreshing. The anonymity of the interwebz rarely leads to such an end. Kudos to both of you.

You'd be amazed how easily these online interactions can bleed over into real life. The world is a small, small place.

I think I found a better pot. What do you guys think about this one?

Update International 60 Qt. Stainless Steel Pot with Sandwich Bottom (cover included) - UPI-SPS-60 - SPS-60 at Wares Direct

It's thicker and has a sandwich bottom. It doesn't have any ports, but weldless are easy enough to throw in there. Any good on this one?

Many people use these pots from Update International. I think they may be the same pot that Spike is selling, he is just installing the ports as a service and reselling them.

His pots are 1mm all around, these are 1.2 mm with a sandwich bottom.

Its your pretty standard 18/8 meaning generic, stainless steel. When they are making machining grade stainless they have to add all the alloying elements in very narrow and controlled amounts, because many customers require material certs. With a generic 18/8 grade ss the amounts of material they add aren't as textbook;they don't necessarily fall in the exact criteria to make them 304/316 etc. Perfectly fine for stamping a pot with though. This really is a great deal, I don't know how they can offer this at this price with the aluminum core bottom.
