The basket seems to be built well enough but with my first brew, it barely held all the grain I needed. It was very difficult to stir the mash and with that, I had to switch to a bag to finish the mash to get the rest of the grain into the mix. The pot is built well enough too but seems has a thin bottom. I had a bit of scorching on the bottom from the boil.
Needs a bigger capacity basket and needs a thicker clad bottom on the pot
