I have 3 large stainless cooking pots with loose fitting lids
Will these be OK to start fermentation with a muslin cloth covering the lid and held in place with an elastic band. They range in size from 1 3/4 gallon to 4 1/2 gallon.

Those will be fine but sanitize them with Iodophor as many other sanitizers will pit Stainless steel. Also remember that you want some good space to allow for fermentation so if doing a bigger batch you will want to divide the batch amongst a few of those, you probably will need at least 4" of room and keep the muslin bag tight so as not to sag i the middle and touch your wine, use a draw string or big elastic band.
