Are CHE's OK on dimmer stats? Or only Pulse Prop' Stats?

I'll probabley just get another IR bulb, if I get a CHE I'll have to change the fitting to a ceramic holder.
But it's worth knowing for future

Pulse and dimming stat will work equally well with a ceramic heater.
The pulse is cheaper and has an advantage that when a steady temperature is reaches, the red light will pulse on and off, telling you that there is a steady state.
The red light on the dimming stat will glow less as the steady state has been reached but this is not so easy to judge.
