I will be interested in a few months, save me a ton of money for shipping on the stout kettles.

Can you post a photo or two of them side by side to show the differences? They appear to be the same pot. What would you sell one for without the welded couplers?

Blichmanns MSRP is $669, that probably is a mistake. But you can get the blichmann's shipped for $669, lots of shops offer free shipping specials from time to time (Rebel Brewer has one going on right now).

Our new kettle is on the left. eBay kettle on the right

Difference in handles. Ours is on the left

The lid doesn't seat at all. The lid is also very flimsy (thickness .6-.8mm)

It would surprise me if retailers honored free shipping on something this big. It's going to cost ~$100 to ship and they are probably making $150-$200 off this kettle.
