When using a 5,500 watt element in the BK, is there anything to worry about with FWH or hot break collecting on the element? Does anything STICK to the element? Is cleaning it a b*tch?

No, no, and no!

The element will get a little residue on it, but I would not say cleaning it is a b*tch.

Much, much easier than cleaning the outside of a gas fired kettle IME.

No, I soak my BK in Oxi after each brew, nothing remains. Much easier than cleaning an IC

Nothing sticks to the element...
