That's identical to the element I'm using.
I was looking for the SS LWD type too, but there wasn't any local and once I got excited about the project, I didn't want to wait for delivery.
That being said, I am getting a buildup on the element. It's hard, yet comes off easily with scotch-brite. It might be calcium? from the city hard water.
(I generally use 50/50 RO/filtered fridge water).
I've used it on at least a dozen batches. Again, not for the full 60min boil, just a boost to the propane.
I just used mine Sunday to heat the sparge water with the pot sitting on the picnic table which I thought was pretty cool. Getting my AG feet wet while still holding onto the easy-peasy extract method.
