This product will be used in the process of making peanut brittle at our church beginning in October, I do not know at this time whether the product will be more suitable than our current brand of cookware. Upon the delivery (much sooner than I expected!) I was very impressed with the appearance and construction of the stock pot. I'm looking forward to using it (and the four others that were ordered) this fall.
