Someone was looking for a stainless steel shovel on a recent forum post. I cant find the post. However if they are reading this Aldi have them on sale from this Thursday for $20. I have had one for a year or more and no problems. Also i have a stainless fork, from Aldi which I use for digging rock worms, not much harder work than that and it is as good as new.

It's no good for cooking sausages Phil. Stainless steel sticks too much for that. You gotta get the teflon coated one for $25

Don't want the shovel but I am looking for a large stainless bucket (15-20 litres) to use as a pseudo hot water system (ie; fill bucket with water and stand on the edge of the fire!). If anyone sees one at a hardware store or similar, please let me know which store.

Cheers Mick

Gday Mick,

We use a cheapy SS stockpot from "Cheap as chips". Cost about $10 and holds 10 litres. But they had bigger ones. It has a stainless steel lid which is naturally better than the glass ones.

And I added my own wire handle - used the spring wire that comes with rubber flares.

I think you are missing the advantages a SS shovel gives the discerning user.
Unlike your blue collar working class tempered steel shovel, a SS shovel is a sign of elegance & style glistening up on the roof rack for all the mothers at school to envy.
It is not, like its poor cousin, the Cyclone 240 Posthole shovel, just a tool.
It is the ultimate tool.
If one puts one on ones roof rack & one chooses not to use ones SS shovel for several months one does not have a rust stain down the side of ones Toorak Tractor.
On the other hand a steel shovel requires the owner to actually use it to keep it shiny.
There in lies the difference.
