    My induction burner (Avantco IC3500) would not work with an external controller without
    modification. The unit needs to be powered up (i.e., you have to push the on/off button) if the
    power is disconn...

    nealperkins - I got a ss 22 qt from walmart thats magnetic. Would be good for extract /
    partial grain or small batches.

    I wired it Hot-Hot-Ground. My receptacle is wired into a sub-panel I put in myself, so I could
    get the right configuration to the receptacle.

    I forgot to mention that I did stir before every temp reading. Yes, there is a lot of
    temperature stratification. About 10-15 deg differential throughout the kettle. I usually use a
    pump to recirculat...

    The burner was set at 3500W for the test whereas subsequently I found that I can bring 6.5 gal
    to a rolling boil with this kettle at 2900W. So it was overpowered a bit and that's why the
    temperature r...

    BtW, the cover was on the kettle when these temps were measured.

    Here's the data

    If anyone is interested, I collected data on the temp rise vs time with both the 15 gal mega
    pot and the 9 gal bayou classic. I can post it. The temperature rise is very impressive. Now,
    if anyone is ...

    The problem that I see with the mega pot is the dimensions. It's on the order of 18" wide
    whereas the induction burner's actual heating area is 8.5". I get a good boil in the center at
    the bottom of t...

    Mine is the Avantco IC3500. I did a lot of research and this one was the biggest bang for the
    buck. I'm quite happy with it. One note however: the burner size is 8 1/2". So the larger
    diameter kettles...
