This stainless steel element is entirely made of stainless steel: the element itself and the base. The element itself has been polished to be shiny, smooth and easy to clean.
This 5000W element has a base to tip length of 35.5 cm and has a ripple shape to increase the surface area. It is a good fit for any kettle with a diameter of 40 cm and bigger.
For brewing, you want a low watt density element: the power per square centimeter should be as low as possible to prevent scorching. This element has a watt density of 14W per cm2, which is very low.
See the table below for the how much current the element will draw.
Voltage 230 V 240 V Power 5000 W 5500 W Current 21.7 A 22.9 A
Note: always consult an electrician for advice and help with wiring your elements! Under no circumstances should these be used without proper wiring, ground fault circuit protection and overcurrent circuit protection.
