I have the 10 and wish I had the 8. 10 gallons, IMHO is a useless size. Too big to use as a boil kettle for 5 gallon batches and obviously too small for a boil kettle for 10 gallon batches. Another (minor) drawback is the 10 gallon has a very large surface area compared to the volume, so you'll likely lose more water in your boil than normal, but like I said, that's probably pretty minor.
Other than that, they are very well built pots. Tough as nails, thick and nice heavy, thick bottms with an aluminum core for better hear distribution.
I'm happy with mine, just wish I had the 8 gallon instead.
Too bad I still didn't live in NJ...I'd sell you my 10 for a deal.
