2-2.5gal batches in a kettle with 120V 1500W element, controlled by Auber PID. Bringing to boil is a slow process, and was wondering if adding an "electric hot plate" under the pot is a good idea? The induction/infra red ones run $40-00 up. Other option is a 120V 2200w element from Brew hardware. Which would be a better option?

I just started using a hot plate made by Mai. It goes up to 3500 watts. I like that you can easily control the temp. It requires 220. I used an outlet that was previously dedicated for a deep freeze and just swapped out the outlet and put a 220 breaker in my panel...less than ten minutes.
