Slightly off topic but if you're looking for pots then I'd look around at the op shops for pressure cookers. They are usually built to a very high standard because of the danger of them exploding. Pressure cooking is out of fashion, and they take up a lot of cupboard space, so they tend to be fairly easy to come across. So you'll pay loose change for a big pot that'll last forever.
I‘m still traumatised by the time one of them exploded when I was a kid (well, the valve did, the frame was fine). Very very loud at close range and the entire kitchen, including the 12-foot ceiling and me, was finely covered in the mist of dinner.
