large Mazzetti copper stock pot, thick enough?

dajpearl | Dec 22, 201908:23 AM     2

Hi. I recently purchased a 32 cm, 14 qt stock pot, and I'm wondering if I should try to change to thicker material, or maybe cancel. Their pots default to using 2mm copper foil, which means it's thinner after being hammered. I'm wondering if at this size it might have been a bad idea not to try for thicker copper. They do customize, and I've asked if it's possible here and what the cost increase might be. The 2mm version was ~$285US shipped, to west coast US, which seems pretty reasonable. I'm also concerned about the weight. I guess my questions surround whether it is worth it or necessary to increase thickness in this case. Using an electric cooktop. Thanks.

Edit: I realize that this might not technically even be a stock pot, as it's 19 cm tall. This will undoubtedly change its function and probably makes thickness even more important, considering how wide it is?
