Christmas is over for one member of our household - the Baby Burco click here - it is back in the garage having done its job of cooking the Christmas ham joint. May come out New Years day for the mulled wine for the local mock hunt but a posh stainless steel one normally does that job.
No - not that model but you can get newer ones, my one dates from the early 1950's. My one holds 7 gallons = 30lt. Look in your local paper's classified ads, most of them are used as hot water urns these days.
We use something similar to click here for cooking our ham. But now wiz-kid your have given us something else to think about. May get one as a wedding present to my future wife, and see the shortest marriage on record lol
If you have an Asian community in your area, there is bound to be a shop that stocks large 'on the hob' cooking utensils. They are usually a fraction of the price of most advertised similar products, found on-line or in catalogues.
The same might apply to wholesale caterers outlets (more expensive) or auction houses that have regular repossession sales.
