Default 12.5 inch Diameter, 6.5 gallon pot

I've been brewing on my electric stove in my 5 gallon pot which is a 12 inch diameter. As you all know, its a pain to boil anything over 4 gallons in a 5 gallon pot.

I bought a 6.5 gallon pot that was a 15 inch diameter....and it sucks cause it is so much bigger than my heater element. I can't make good contact with the way my stove is.

==EDIT==
I think I need to find a pot with the bonded thick core on the bottom. Anyone have a link to such? I'm having trouble weeding though them all across different sites.

So basically, a 26 quart or bigger pot (13 inch diameter or less) with a thick core on the bottom so i don't burn the malt.

Something tall and narrow like this KingKooker http://www.northlineexpress.com/item/6KK-26PK/26-Qt.-Aluminum-Turkey-Pot
would be great, If it would have had the thick core on bottom....which this doesn't

So I stumbled onto this on ebay...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CONCORD-Stainless-Steel-Stock-Pot-w-Basket-Heavy-Kettle-Cookware-Boiling-/140678763592?pt=Cookware&var=&hash=item667474c3be

and this on amazon

http://www.amazon.com/King-Kooker-26PK-26-Quart-Aluminum/dp/B0000ANBTA/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1329428051&sr=1-4


They are about 12 inch diameters (perfect for me) and 6.5 gallons. I think the first one is meant for seafood boiling, the other is for turkey fry.

Would this be a good choice to boil wort in?? Or any other suggestions on a 6+ gallon pot that is 12.5" diameter or smaller?
The quality of the stainless steel 18/8 is definately a good "food grade" stainless so I guess it comes down to whether or not it will fit properly on your stove for your use. Good Luck!
