I have a 3100 watt glass top stove burner and wanted to get into biab.from what I have seen with induction cook tops, electric 220 volt setups - I have plenty of wattage but I worry about that much weight on the glass top doing a 5 gallons batch. Anyone have any experience? I have a GE JS760SLSS stove. Thanks.

Also was looking at the 10 gallons gasone kettle on Amazon for $108. Didn't know if anyone had any good luck with it.

This GE page (https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=22817) says:

Our range and cooktop glass cooking surfaces (radiant, induction, gas-on-glass) are tested for a maximum weight limit of 50lbs. Gas ranges are also tested to this weight.​

A few other search hits pointed at numbers around 45 to 50 lbs. That seems like a conservative number. 7 gals of water is around 58 lbs...throw in a few lbs for your pot...hmmmm.

I have a glass cooking surface and have mashed in a few time using my 11gal pot. I didn't really think to much about it until now.
