Has anyone bought from them ? $145 seems so low for stainless 80QT - I always though Instawares was the cheapest

No comment on those, but the Bayou Classic 82qt is the same price and there's tonnes of reviews of the Bayou Classic pots here on HBT. http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-...3057510&sr=8-1

The SPS-80 is an excellent kettle. MoreBeer, MegaPot and we use Update International SPS series kettles. Tri-clad heavy duty. The Bayou is nice but not in the same league.

The shipping is more than double at katom.com which puts them at almost the same price...

Gotta check the shipping... that's where you often get ripped

That's a decent kettle. The thickness is only about .8mm though. That thickness is fine for a smaller kettle but getting a little thin (durability wise) for a larger kettle. It'll boil water just fine though
