General Homebrew Discussion / Kettle and electric brewing

Hey all looking for some perspective on boil kettles.

I'm in the process of stepping up to electric HERMS. Using keggles I already owned for HLT and MLT. I am going to buy a 20 gallon pot for the boil kettle.

So... I really can't justify spending a lot of money on the new kettle. I understand a thicker kettle will retain heat better and a thicker bottom will distribute heat better if your heat source is a burner underneath. But since I am going electric, the element will be submerged inside the kettle... so I don't care about heat distribution.

Can anyone make a case for investing serious $ into a nice kettle for electric brewers? Aesthetics do not concern me.

If not, I'm pulling the trigger on this:

20 gallons, stainless, and it's actually thicker than some kettles that are double the price (Bayou Classic, for example).
