Not "QUITE" the same thing but I have a Bodum Santos Vac-Pot (not the
plug-in electric) and I heat it on my stove that has solid cast-iron eyes. I
start it on high 'cause it takes forever just to heat the eyes, and even If
it turn it down later the cast iron has a LOT of momentum the only thing
that seems to affect the taste of the brew is letting it sit on the eye (at
whatever temp) and keeping it from starting it's vac down into the
lower..........They warn you about letting the base run dry, but unless you
put the tube almost on the bottom of the base I don't see how it could cook
dry, but you can definitely overextract if you don't watch the "Churn"
time. Gotta also add that when I use a regular stainless sauce pan to heat
water for my Press it does NOT taste significantly different from using the
"Pot" from the vac-pot to bring it to a boil. (also....that is ALL I use
that sauce pan for....) I'd say go ahead and use your base.
