Anyone can help me?i need to know what material which conduct heat but insulate electricity?


Im making this hot plate..im using a 600w and 240v heating element..when i first switch it on..without any girdle or plate on top of the heating element, it was going smoothly..then as i attach the girdle or plate on top of the heating element..suddenly disaster strike..my workshop power supply was trip and i know something wrong with my hot plate or electrical cooker.

I then started to trouble shoot what is the problem. Guess what, i made a mistake in buying a girdle. The girdle that i bought was an ordinary girdle use for people selling burger at the stall to cook the beef and patty. Obviously, that girdle was not made for electrical cooker. It is made for heat induction cooker which use fire to heat up the girdle from the bottom.

Now in order to complete my cooker, I need help from all of you guys which is more expert in this matter. Are there any materials which I can use for making the hot plate?Material which can conduct heat but does not conduct electricity. If you guys have some idea, please do help me.

Thank you for reading this and thank you in advance for those who help me out.

Ceramic and glass, but that would be a bit hard, wouldn't it?
That's a good question.
