Default Cheap Ebay seller.

Picked up a 52 quart aluminum heavy duty BK with lid and grate to hold bags off the bottom for 35 buck shipped to my door. The vendor is called Icydeals. The item number is 140701225030. It is located in California so it will take a few days to arrive, but this is about the best price I have been able to find for stainless or heavy guage commercial aluminum pots. I can now do a full volume 5 gallon boil with no worries abot hot break boil overs. I know I still need to watch, but it is way better than a 7.5 Gallon pot. Now I have a BK, HLT amd MLT. Only have one burner so I need to cache water to lauter while I drain the MLT. Easy issue to work out though, just another trip to wally world for another 5 gallon round igloo cooler for 20 bucks. Also ordered from Bargain fittings and they are just too good. I did two orders back to back and they combined them and refunded the extra shipping in about an hour after I ordered. Those guys are on the ball. One step closer to all grain. Can't wait!!!!

Wow that is a hell of a deal. I just paid almost that much for a lid for my 32 quart. I might have to pick one of these up.

Quick update on the order from Bargain Fittings. Ordered mid morning on the 14th and have it in the mail at my home today on the 16th. Damn, that was pretty quick even from Texas. Wendel has my business as long as he keeps this up. Super fast and paying attention to the orders gets my vote everytime.

UPDATE: This seller has raised his current price to 59.00 for the exact same item. After 5 days of no shipping info I emailed the seller and got a canned reply and a useless tracking number for USPS. Attemted for 2 days now to use tracking number and NO SUCH NUMBER exists in the USPS system. Hmmmm, wonder what my feedback is gonna be for this deal. I appologize to all my brewing brothers and sisters for turning you onto such a schmuck. Hope nobody else is getting there time wasted being jerked around by Icydeals. Hate it when a good deal goes sour like this.

Sorry for your luck. I haven't had any bad experiences with eBay yet (fingers crossed). Sounds like I won't be doing business with "Diceydeals" anytime soon, thanks for the heads up.

In my experience I have found USPS tracking numbers mostly useless. Keeping my fingers crossed that it arrives as expected.

Some of the "tracking" numbers are actually just delivery confirmation numbers, the seller/shipper will use them to verify that you received your item.

You can get this for $10.00 more, and it has two fittings already installed on it.

I purchased this pot as well, and finally got notification that it had shipped yesterday. No tracking number though.

USPS tracking numbers are definitely worthless and usually days behind.
