2. Yes. Its no more cumbersome than a stockpot or whatever.
it's definitely more cumbersome than an electric kettle. Alternatively, I bought one of these for big jobs. The rain spout unscrewes. I then heated the spout and flattened it so I have a 3.5 in wide controled flow spout.
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

I use an electric kettle too, but on its own it would take forever, since it's a lot less water at a time.

I have 3 electric kettles we use and a bunch of people borrow them from me each year.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Why not? The water is being used as a medium to kasher, not as food...

grates measured in at over 1100 F
Dishwasher being disassembled for kashering. Doors came off also to make libun kal easier.
Will post more pictures and videos soon but they're taking forever to upload to youtube.

Why so high? Doesn’t metal glow (in a darkened room) above 800-850F?

It can't be worse than whisky
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There are a lot of people who pay people back to order their amazon products and leave 5 star reviews. Is it לפני עור because someone will now buy it based on a dishonest review?
I think so. Paying people to leave honest reviews would be ok?

For the first time ever I hired someone to kasher. He was good and experienced and knows the halacha. Like @churnbabychurn I was never comfortable with hot water getting each part of the sink, so would double up with inserts, and I was also aware that the water was hot for only a few seconds after taking off the fire so would double up with an iron.
This guy came with a huge torch, did the grates and oven racks outside, did the sinks with the torch, plus Ajax in the drains, did the counters with a stone and only about 4 linear feet per pour.
In the meantime he heated the ovens up to 500 and torched them. These are not self clean, so I had never used them for Pesach , but figured why not. Hashgocha pratis because the self clean function in the oven that has it malfunctioned.
Long story short, in a quarter of the time that it would have normally taken me I have more confidence in the kashrus of my kitchen than I've ever had.
Then he told me it's his last year....

I would assume it's ok. שחד is by a dayan.
