Yes it will happen with electric brewing, but you eliminate that with a pot with plenty of head space.
I suggest going for a 10 gal pot if doing 5 gal batches, and 20 for 10 gallons.
1/2 barrel kegs make perfect boil kettles, and unless you want the bling of a commercial kettle they can be cheaper.
Everyone here will help you through the process of converting to electric,
so... Just Do It!
