My mom bought me this stock pot at Goodwill... I really needed a big pot like this but I have always steered clear of the blue enamel because they seem flimsy to me. Do any of you use them? Are they ok for thicker soups, beans or mashed potatoes?

They aren't real good for cooking in. They are usually used for canning.

I have one I have used for over 30 years.  I use it for canning and for making my HUGE batches of salsa.  As long as you don't cook things over high heat (except when boiling water for canning) and stir it frequently, it works just fine.

That's a low boil pot.  Great for boiling stuff, potatoes, corn, lobsters, clams.  Not so bueno for spaghetti sauce.

I have that and another one for roasting turkeys and larger roasts. I've had them both for over 14 years and don't have any problems with them. I use the pot to make big batches of potatoes, tamales, pie fillings, soups, etc. I've had no problem cleaning them, other than they're awkward in my sink.
