What size stock pots should home cook have?

spmc | Jun 18, 200905:57 AM     14

I'm in the process of getting some new cookware and wanted some opinions on what size stock pots everyone has. Currently I have a 6 and 8 quart. I was thinking about adding either a 12, 16, or 20. I think I'm going to rule out the 12 because I already have the 2 smaller ones and thought if I added one it should be bigger. I'm leaning toward the 16 but just wanted some input. I usually try to make a good bit of stock at one time, and I might also use it for boiling shrimp every now and then if I don't feel like setting up outside. Any advice? Thanks in advance
