  • Posted in thread: 120v 2000W, will a longer element or narrower pot inprove boil? on 04-21-2014 at 12:07 PM
    Changing the shape or surface area of the element won't do anything for you. Any 2kw element
    will transfer the same amount of energy to the wort. The only thing that will improve the boil
    will be to r...
