We present the discovery of two new 10 day period giant planets from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite mission, whose masses were precisely determined using a wide diversity of ground-based facilities. TOI-481 b and TOI-892 b have similar radii (0.99 0.01 and 1.07 0.02, respectively), and orbital periods (10.3311 days and 10.6266 days, respectively), but significantly different masses (1.53 0.03, respectively). Both planets orbit metal-rich stars ( = dex and = for TOI-481 and TOI-892, respectively) but at different evolutionary stages. TOI-481 is a = 1.14 0.02 = 1.66 0.02 G-type star (=K), that with an age of 6.7 Gyr, is in the turn-off point of the main sequence. TOI-892 on the other hand, is a F-type dwarf star (=K), which has a mass of = 1.28 0.03 and a radius of = 1.39 0.02. TOI-481 b and TOI-892 b join the scarcely populated region of transiting gas giants with orbital periods longer than 10 days, which is important to constrain theories of the formation and structure of hot Jupiters.
