Has any one used one of these on an electric stove. I am going to be moving and an electric stove may be in my future. I am trying to avoid one like the plague but it may happen. So if you have seen or heard of any issues please let me know. I also sent an email to Blichmann to get their opinion.

All I know is that the boilermaker pots do not have a tri-clad bottom which I think would be a benefit on an electric stove.

I have read things about slow boil times. Presently I have a glass top stove at my place and I use it to heat the mash water. It does take longer than a ng stove I am sure but I just want to make sure I am not going to have issues before pulling the plug on a $300 kettle.

I have a 15 gallon Boilermaker and I have used it on the electric stove a couple times when the weather was poor/windy. No issues whatsoever.
