Designed to be set on level ground so you can easily lift out dunk basket. Do not start any scalder without water in the drum as it will damage the heat elements. Each scalder is hand made. These are not made in a massive factory. The scalders travel a great distance prior to being shipped out here at CoopsNMore. For these reasons you can expect to see small scratches, minor dings, scuffs, finger prints, and possibly a sharp edge or two. We look them over as best as we can prior to shipping. Please agree to and understand that you may see a blemish mentioned on your scalder when receiving. Also understand you will be receiving a stainless steel scalder that works great, at the lowest price, & will save you a ton of manual labor.
