Just thought I'd add my experiences. I'm boiling 10 gallons with two of these HD 2000w elements in the keggle. No problems scortching, either.
Prior to mounting the elements, I sometimes used 3 2000w elements in there on heat sticks. I had a batch that I miscalculated the boil off ration on and so I wanted to boil off faster so as not to change the length of the boil.
No scortching problems for me.
