Element on my stove burnt out

I was heating something on the stove the other day and noticed that the center of the electric ring was much hotter than the rest of it .I was busy and didn't give it much of a thought ..today i was cooking something on that burner and its parked a little like a quick popping weld and i noticed the water in the pot dripping onto the burner ..  the dang thing burned a hole right thru my big 4 quart  T-fal pot .. there is a 1/8th inch round hole in the pot and it the burner too .I'm glad i was in the kitchen at the time .it was kind of funny because i heard the back door open and close 10 seconds after the "weld " went off... and sparked across the kitchen..It was the dog letting herself out ...Sparks and fur don't mix ..Exit stage left .

You can also use it to weld things together.
