After looking everywhere for a proper jam/preserving/maslin pan, I ended up ordering one from the UK. It got lost in the post so the supplier sent another one, and the first one has now turned up.
Rather than send it back I have agreed with the supplier to try to sell it in Australia and forward the money, so this could be a great buy for someone.
This is a brand new, stainless steel (important for any recipe containing vinegar), 8 lt/15pint pan. It has a handle over the top (like a bucket), a pouring lip, and another handle opposite the pouring lip to facilitate tipping the pan. It looks exactly like the pan sold by the Aga Shop for $237 (you can see it at http://www.agashopaustralia.com/NewFile ... steel.html
I can sell it for $120 (plus postage within Australia) which will cover the suppliers' costs.
