Customer Reviews

32 Qt Aluminum Stock Pot is rated 4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this pot for home brewing beer. It's a great pot for the boil kettle, nice thick walls and very sturdy handles. Somewhat shorter and wider than most special-made brewpots. It feels very secure and solid even almost full to the top. Arrived with some minor scratches and dings, but that's to be expected and is not a problem. My only issue is that as far as I can tell its maximum actual capacity is a little over 30 quarts, can't figure out where the 32 figure comes from, but as I won't be filling it to the brim anyway it's not that big a deal. As this is an aluminum pot, brewers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The pot is very heavy and durable. I have used it on a turkey cooker gas burner outside and there is no distortion of the metal, no sticking, and it cooks very evenly, no regional burning. It cleaned easily, just wash and wipe out. The bottom is exceptionally heavy. Highly recommended, a nice heavy piece of cookware. I expect to use it for many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This pot has nice, thick walls for transmitting heat and providing rigidity. The handles are sturdy, with no wobble, even when the pot is nearly full. I use this pot for home brewing beer and it worked really well for my first all-grain brew-in-a-bag batch with it. I'd recommend this pot to anyone looking for a large enough pot for home brewing. It is a great product at a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This pot is great for making food for a large group of people. Although it isn't the prettiest pot I have ever seen, it is extremely durable and relatively easy to clean (especially considering something this size isn't going to fit into a dishwasher). The aluminum construction seems to transmit heat efficiently and evenly across the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pot is the perfect size for brewing 5 gallon batches of all-grain beer. Before buying it, I found myself having so much wort after sparge that I was using my 5-gallon stainless pot and two others on the stove-top. Searching all over the internet, this is the best deal I found on a 7.5 gallon stock pot. No complaints so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I needed a stock pot for making my own Homebrew Beer. This does the job very well, but if I had to do it again, I would have sprung for Stainless. Scraping my Stainless Spoon along it left visible scratches on the bottom. I hope it didn't scrape off in the beer. Uh, oh...But that is my fault, not the pot's. The pot is good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this stock pot for home brewing, and I have been very happy with it. It works great. I can boil 6.5 gal in here no problem. I will get some boil overs if I am not careful, but if you use Fermcap you will be good to go. It cleans well and has stood up to my banging it around with no dents or dings. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great stock pot it is built well and sturdy. I would recommend this stock pot to anyone and you cannot beat the price. I do not think the more expensive stock pots will offer any more. I use this pot a couple of times a week and am very happy with it.

Can this pot be used for deep frying a turkey on a propane burner?

This Update International 32 Qt Aluminum Stock Pot (APT-32) is not large enough for frying a turkey. We suggest using something that is at least 80 qts to fit a large turkey.
