Induction cooking is safe, fast, easy and energy-saving. This cooktop is absolutely wonderful. It works very well, turns itself off when a pot is taken off the hob (burner), and is not hard to use. it's very programmable, but if all a person wants to do is cook, it's very easy to turn on and set the temperature. ALSO: Is uses degrees, and you can increase or decrease it by five degrees at a time. I bought this for my mother when she forgot to turn off her gas stove and almost killed herself. She's 91 years old and has no trouble using it.
It serves it's purpose. I gave it a 4 because I find it difficult to simmer. I have to keep adjusting the burner. Also, I would like to clean under the burners without unscrewing them.
it's light, compact and very efficient. at 1300 watts it's also modest enough such that lousy electrical outlets are not going to be challenged. if you're used to induction cooktops, and believe me, patience is something you come to deal with in a hurry, you'll appreciate the sheer portability of this device. you can actually cook with something you can lift. just be patient, and test your grub....
Purchased this to use as my conventional range died and I don't want to replace it until I have natural gas hooked up. So bought this to complement the induction cooktops (nuwave) I am using in the meantime. I got this to use for my "non induction" cookware and it held two large saucepans (one almost dutch oven sized) and put on a large batch of chili on one side and a large pot of rice on the other. Very pleased w/ purchase. It's really very nice to have as an addition to my crazy kitchen.
