Burco MFCT1030 (444440353) Cygnet Water Boiler, Manual Fill, 30 L
I too bought this as a boiler for brewing and it works well. It boils liquids from room temperature in an hour and ten minutes, fairly consistently, hotter liquids faster. The maximum setting enables a rolling boil, but you do need to experiment with the controls a bit for temperatures for mash or sparging etc., where you need to work with a thermometer to get it just right: I use a cheap one with a longish cable to drop into the water, although you can't fully tighten the lid, but it works. I am well pleased with this model, which seem to be good value: only wish that hey did a 60 litre version too.

The thermostat will cycle on and off to maintain the temperature. When the water starts to boil turn the control knob to approximately setting 5 to keep it simmering.
