Ok now,here's a possible work around I found out of neccesity...which is of course the mother of invention. I had 3 burners on our electric stove go south,with the 4th on it's last legs. I searched amazon,& found the ones in the link in My Profile. Pantra I think the name was.
Anyway,they heat up faster & more evenly than the stock GE ones did. I can get 3G in my 5G SSBK to boikling in 18 minutes now. Maybe they'll help you out?...
