Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LittleBigHart Huge boiling pot not for deep frying.
Diameter of the pot bottom is 15 inches. The bottom does not appear to be much thicker than the sides, and the pot is very lightweight when empty. Diameter of draining basket bottom is 13 inches. The basket has 4 raised indentations on the bottom that act like feet to keep it off the bottom of the pot. Basket fits perfectly in the pot. All parts aluminum including handles on pot, basket and lid. Included instructions say can't be used for deep frying, (no turkey frying in this.) If using to make stock will still need to strain as holes in basket are probably too large. (I would not bother with basket for making stock.) At 42 quarts the pot and basket are very heavy when full, but this does not have the heavier bottom so stuff may stick and burn if not stirred regularly or if heat too high. Should work just fine for boiling clams, corn or salt potatoes. Can't say how long it will last as I've only owned a few weeks.
