      My 220 V, 30 A range has coils, but my hotplate burner is solid.  That should allow for better heat transfer than my range, and it might reduce distillation time, which should save money in the long run.

      Possibly higher due to more amps used

      The amount of energy to run the still will not change. Your electric bill will probably remain the same.

      I have a hot plate that cycles, but it was only used to melt solder.  Guess it's time to test it with my 2.5 gal pot still.  Hot plate is 110 V, whereas my kitchen range is 220v.  I should be able to cut my electric bill by using a hot plate if it works well.  Thanks Bob!

      Has anyone thought of using a blower with ethanol or methanol to heat a still such as in oil furnace like setup?
