I agree that it is expensive, but pretty bling too.

I did have a fair amount of rust on the hlt element before starting this project. None on the boil element, must be the acidic environment.

I smeared some silicone rtv on there. 11 bucks for rtv108, much less than stainless elements.

I've got one with a good ground and one without. Dammit.

Mine was the same. I took it apart, scrapped off the paint, and reassembled. Fixed the problem.
