We purchased this for a summer cottage that we're restoring. It had very old appliances including an old electric stove that was non-functional. With very little usable space in the kitchen, we decided to replace the stove with counter space to give us more flexibility. This two burner unit seemed just the thing and it looks like it will work out fine. It's easier to clean than coil burner units and has a clean appearance to it. It heats a little slowly but serves well for either soup or an omelet. It's too early to tell about durability but it is easy to move around and store when not needed.
