Anyone had any experience with the immersion heater elements that a few of the HSB stores sell?

Are they suitable/safe for boiling the wort to a rolling boil in a 25L pail, or do they end up burning the malt and messing with the taste of the brew?

Good Day
My boilers are two old plastic fermenters and I use three immersion heaters to get the boil going then one to keep it boiling. I have used this method on 400+ batches with no problems. Please have some form of drop off switch for safety. When you say malt I assume you are referring to the wort and not malt in a mash tun.
