I was wondering if one of these bucket heaters and a simple hot plate would be enough to get a 5 gallon batch to a rolling boil in around an hour or at all for that matter.

I use two bucket heaters. It gets 5 gallons boiling pretty good. Actually one alone would probably almost do it, so I am sure it would work with a hot plate.

Have been following this thread and took the plunge:

Just got 2 Allied Precision bucket heaters (1000W ea), and verified rolling boil from 95 degree start in 60min with 5gal water. Still some plumbing and electrical work to do in my basement before I graduate to wort. I can't imagine I'd have any more problems with scorching than with my propane burner, but will let you know.
