Why not just use corn sugar it melts as you add it to water stir once and done. And no need to invert.

Stainless steel bolts from the inside so the nuts will be outside to tighten them down on your gasket. Use wingnuts to just tighten hand tight. If you can only use 110 volts why not use two elements to cut down heat up.
