38 Litre stock pot! That’s huge! As well as paddle envy I now have stock pot envy.

What did you use to calibrate the inside? I scratched mine using a drill bit but it’s quite hard to see.

I’ve got a Dremel type thing I used to grind the marks in, I weighed 1Kg of water on the digital scales in a jug so I knew how accurate the jug was, then i filled up about the first 10 litres 1 litre at a time each time marking the position, then I filled up 5 litres at a time for the next marks. I then measured between the 5L marks and split it into 5 equal divisions, it worked out about 1cm to 1 litre. *making sure my vessel is level in both directions before starting* πŸ™‚
