i use a double burner cook stove range unit that i bought from walmart. i took out the thermal cut out switch, added some insulation, and most important of all, added an insulated lid. without the lid, the best you can get to is about 700 to 800F. the lid keeps the heat in and eliminate convection cooling. i also heat the glass with a mapp gas torch right before pickup, so the glass could be 1200 to 1300F, but i don't have any way to measure it. i measure the hot plate temperature with a type j thermocouple.
