I have bought their 32 quart, and there's no problems with the pot whatsoever. Seems to be well made. It's not the most heavy/thickest walled pot, but it's also not flimsy at all.

I'd recommend aluminum pots to anyone on a budget. I think stainless is a waste of money, but I guess it's personal preference. The only difference to me is SS takes longer to heat and looks pretty.

There seems to be as many opinions on the topic as there are choices in boiling pots.  I have some aluminum but more stainless equipment.  Stainless tends to be less prone to scratching which might leave places for bacteria/bad stuff to grow but then again, in a boil pot, does it matter?  I found this article somewhat helpful:
