The Galley Pot is an important item in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It is the subject of Pennington's first case in the game, and Chef Shimi's prized possession.

During Chapter 6, Mario found a group crowding Chef Shimi's kitchen. Upon joining the discussion, Mario found out that Chef Shimi's Galley Pot was stolen. A detective on the train, Pennington, soon accused Mario of the theft. Mario denied the accusation, and so Pennington challenged him to find the true culprit. Eventually, Mario found a clue: a trail of stains. Mario followed the food stains to Room 3, in which he found Heff T. The obese Toad knew what Mario was about to accuse him of, and nervously, he told him not to look in his cabinet. In it, Mario found the Galley Pot under several food magazines. Though Heff T. was the guilty party, no serious punishment was taken upon him (in fact, Chef Shimi was happy that someone thought his food was worth stealing).

Mario was then told to meet Pennington in his room, and on his way he returned the pot to Chef Shimi. The grateful Cheep-Cheep rewarded Mario with a Star Piece.
