The burner is slow to heat up and slow to cook. Does not get hot enough to fry properly, will only steam meats. After about 2 months of use, the top started to break off and the unit developed rust. Disposable.
The burner works well and keeps a constant temperature. The only downfall is it takes about 10 or more minutes for water to boil. It gets the job done and keeps a constant temperature it just takes some time to get there. Great value though.
Broke after a week or two of use. Overstock was great about this, and shipped me a new one right away, before even receiving the broken one in the mail! Unfortunately, that one broke during its second use. This product just isn't well-made, is all.
I'll keep shopping at Overstock....just won't buy this thing.
The hotplate works great. When I opened the sealed box that it came in, I noticed that the burner did not line up with the base. I unscrewed the back plate and noticed that it was bent underneath the burner. After shifting the burner to align it with the base, I screwed the back plate back on. It is just the right size for my camper and I have prepared many new meals on it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor, had to be disassembled and reassembled before use.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It matched the item but not the quality.
item worked well - however takes a while to boil water. Only used it a few time so can not comment on how long it lasts. purchased for a vacation and it was perfect for what I needed, just be willing to wait for it to get hot.
I am looking for something to simmer large pots of sauce on. Will this work?

Hello jose61,This is designed for standard-sized pots that you might ordinarily use on a standard-sized cooktop. It should work. Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 2, 2014
How well is the temperature controlled. I have a hot plate already, but it varies by + and - 17 degrees celsius when set to a set temperature, which is too much for what I need it for.ninjadg on Apr 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
