No you are absolutely correct but humans being humans invariably crank the
thing up thinking they are going to shorten the distillation time. Also most
of the time while elements cost pretty much the same price or only a little
more for a higher wattage manufacturers and retailers tend to charge
sometimes quite a bit more for the higher wattage. Unfortunately we do not
live in an ideal world so to make the equipment idiot proof and generally
last longer because most people dont read the instructions properly or
invariably mislay the instructions most manufacturers choose the most
foolproof option and try to match the components.
