    1.  I usually go for the best hardware  (within limits..), and I understand that Paderno Grand Gourmet cookware is very good, and that the Italian made are better than the Paderno made elsewhere is not equally good..?

    2. According to http://paderno.it/cookware.html there are no such thing as a "1200-series so I wonder if this guy "Italiano" are selling "the real deal"..? It looks very similar to the 1100-series, but the handles are different.

    I am looking for a 36 cm/36 liter (ca 14"/37 qts). His price for this is NOK 1712,- inkl. 25%VAT (ca 260 USD)

    I'm going to cook ca 60 kg bacalao, using the burner for my crab coocker (max 15 kW).

    It sure is :)

    I have now enough bacalao for 2015 :)

    I havn't got the lid yet, so I used a "gasket" (hose) and a aluplate.

    It got a little burned/scorched in the bottom, but not much. No influence on taste. Very easy to remove. Next time I start with a smaller flame.It will then take ca 2-3 hours to boil.
