Hmm. I have an electric stove and the burners are full contact, so I'm guessing it may get hotter than 450 at the bottom of the pot. I'm living abroad in an apartment right now so the turkey fryers aren't really an option for me anytime soon.

As long as you have wort in contact with the bottom of the kettle it won't get much above 212 because the wort will boil at that temp. Now worries.

My only caution with Teflon is if you're keeping the wort in that pot to cool it after the boil. It shouldn't affect the wort at all but cooling Teflon rapidly with water will damage the Teflon coating and much like everything else in the world now days will "release cancer causing toxins" or something along those lines. But the rapid cooling piece is true ( as far as I can tell) and it could do a number on your pot.

Not to say I know everything about beer. But it might be better to do a concentrated batch and just add the rest of the water later.
