Saw this on craigslist and was wondering if I could use this to boil with. Any ideas? Would the stainless be too thin? seems perfect to fit a couple of burners under.

Don't forget there will be a 4" hole in each of the sinks. I'd say no on the kettle idea, but I wouldn't mind having that instead of my plastic utility sink.

Yeah, I know I would have to weld something over the drains. I have just been looking for an cheap way to start doing larger boils. I saw this and thought "look at all that beautiful stainless". Unfortunately I dont need a sink. Thanks for the reply.

For less than $125 you could get a large, heavy gauge aluminum pot at any restaurant supply.

Thanks for the input. I will look into that. I guess I will let this one go.
