Yeah, I wouldn't use it by itself but on a burner (stove top, etc) it would be nice kick in butt to get to boil.

Don't mean to be dense, but I see that 1375w will not be efficient for boiling. However, still unsure if I was doing the element + propane to get up to boil, then cutting the propane once a good boil was reached and possibly maintaining the boil with just the element. Would definitely cut down on gas but not sure if it is realistic.

1375W is like watching grass grow...will not maintain a boil...I would not bother...2-3kw minimum!
