Default Help heating element!!!


I'm trying to make a heating element that can be dipped into a liquid and bring the temperature to about 375F or 190C as part of my project. The design I have so far is a some form of heating element inside of a test tube that will heat the glass of the test tube to the above temperatures. I also have a on/off switch cabinet lighting power cord which I would like to use to power the heating element. I think that I will need some sort of linear taper potentiometer to adjust the temperature of the heating element and possibly nichrome wire to make the heating element. But, I am very confused as how to hook up the power cord to the potentiometer and then to the nichrome wire and then fit that inside of the test tube. Help please!!!!!
