Affordable and space-saving solution for adding a range to my small operation. I was a bit concerned it might seem underpowered, having previously used exclusively gas ranges, but works like a charm. It does give off an extremely high pitched whine at higher settings, though a fellow I work with told me that was par for the course with induction units.

I cannot say enough good things about the Avantco IC1800. We originally purchased one of these to use as a test to the value of induction cooking for our needs. We were blown away... it does everything it claims, and does it well. The unit is easily cleaned and looks great after several months of daily use. In my opinion, the one feature that needs more discussion is the ability to set a cooking temperature rather than using a simple numbered setting. The unit accepts temperature settings in 10 degree increments, and is fairly accurate. I find that I sometimes have to adjust the temp up or down (usually down) a bit below the displayed temp, but knowing that it does perform consistently. We use these when making soups and sauces, or anything that has to be held at a consistent temperature for extended cooking. In fact, we were so happy with their performance that we purchased a second IC1800. I don't hesitate to recommend these units to anyone considering induction cooking.

Overall, this is a good induction burner. It takes a while to heat up large amounts of liquid, so if you need it to cook fast, consider purchasing a more powerful product.
Molly M. from Madison Sourdough Company Posted on 01/31/2015
This portable hot plate produces amazing and controllable heat. Conduction heat was new to me and I am now very sold on this technology. I have previously experienced cooking with electric and gas, but induction is definitely the best.
Richard C. Posted on 11/20/2014
This countertop induction range is commercial quality and residential price. Sturdy yet can be moved around easily. There is no better way to have a countertop range than this unit.
Jacob L. from NF Q Posted on 11/16/2014
I had been looking at this induction burner for the last year, and a few months ago it went on sale again but I still couldn't decide. Soon after that I decided to just do it and started watching for another sale. After some time, I finally gave up and just bought it outright. Well, you know the rest. Ten days later it went on sale AND included a free fry pan! That said, I am now enjoying the burner. Being new to induction it has been a learning experience. I had three pans that worked. A 10" cast iron skillet, an 8" camp skillet, and a wok with a 5" bottom. The cast iron took forever to heat beyond the center and then even when reduced to level 1, it became so hot as to overheat the unit. The camp skillet heated in the center quickly, but burnt before the heat spread the full circle. The wok heated nicely on the bottom, but the heat did not spread upward. Sure could have used that free fry pan! I'm still experimenting with these, but my success came with an anodized 8" skillet I found in the local department store. Sandwiched in the bottom is a layer of stainless steel which spreads the heat across the 6" surface. I can make an omelet in 5 minutes. Start at default level 6, add veggies, egg mixture, cheese and bacon- approximately 2 minutes. Reduce to level 3, cover with lid for 3 minutes. Without the lid, it takes longer since again, the heat is mostly on the bottom. I am also finding it very useful for heating a teakettle full of water quickly when I need hot water fast. My mother's old Steelco kettle and coffee maker work just fine!

We bought this unit to brew extract beer kits indoors. We used a Tramontina 18/10 Stainless Steel 22-Quart Covered Stockpot to test our boil. We filled that pot with 2.5 gal of water at 69*F and set the IC1800 to it's max. The temps seemed to rise 3*F every minute or so. After approx 26 minutes, it reached 155*F which most of our kits call for to start steeping the grains. We did have the lid on with a small opening for the thermometer probe. After it hit 155, we removed the therm and put the lid on full and waited. It came to a rolling boil at approx 44 minutes. All in all, this little set up works for us. We don't think this is a viable option for large boil brewers. The unit came well packaged, was very sturdy and met our expectations completely. We would recommend this unit without reservation to anyone brewing batches similar to our size.
James F. from Myrtle Beach Brewer Posted on 10/08/2014
This is a great induction range for the money. I've used a few times and have not had any issues. The only thing was when i tried to use a small SS pot it wouldn't work.
Cheryl F. Posted on 10/06/2014
This range works like a charm! We use it in our coffee shop's kitchen for sauces, quick heating soup and lots of other things on our menu. Quick, light, and a great addition to the equipment list.
Jason D. from EVOKE Posted on 09/10/2014
Our favorite part of this induction range is that it beeps if you take the pot off but forget to turn the range off. How convenient! No complaints from us.
Andrea B. from Baked and Sconed, LLC Posted on 08/23/2014
Avantco IC1800 Countertop Induction Range / Cooker - 120V, 1800W, il est bien conçu facile à utiliser et à nettoyer, fait bouillir l'eau rapidement, prend peut de place sur le comptoir.

I have purchase several of chafing dishes from your company. I love them a lot. Also, my family love you guys. I really appreciate everything you do with my orders and products.
Julia M. from JULIA Mcclain Posted on 07/14/2014
Works well thus far with daily use. We use it for grilled cheeses, cooking black bean burgers, and boiling potatoes in our cafe. Replaced a lower end unit that probably wasn't rated for the frequency of use in our establishment.
Gene A. Posted on 06/10/2014
This induction burner is a gem to work with. We use primarily to heat our stock pot to produce our home made pizza sauce. Heats quickly!
James P. from SiP Posted on 06/07/2014
Great item. It can be used for smaller kitchens that don't have a gas connection or for offsite catering. Only downside to these is they can suck a lot of power so you have to make sure wherever you are that you have good power. Also make sure to get Induction pots and pans, aluminum does NOT work with these. Went to a house with a induction system and they bought pans from Walmart, not a good idea. Overall a great item, just can suck a lot of power.
Michael C. from Temecula Catering Posted on 05/02/2014
A great induction range, very easy to use- 15 heat settings and temperature control holding feature is great. Beautiful stainless steel body and also light weight. Great price too!
Miyoun C. Posted on 04/30/2014
The counter top induction cooker works great. Our kitchen is bing remodeled so we are living with this and a microwave for 5-6 weeks Week two and everything is working out fine thanks to our Avantco IC1800. Its so nice we may use it next to our Wolf Stove when we get back in the kitchen. it nice because there is no heat loss.
Richard Y. from MY Dentists Posted on 03/16/2014
This is a very reasonably priced induction cooktop. Great features and very quiet ! Boiling one liter of 56F tap water took approximately 5.10 minutes compared to a Whirlpool Electric range which took 7.45 minutes. I love the rotary knob for power level and temperature control. It is very responsive but its fairly 'twitchy'. The cooktop reading seemed to be a little higher than the actual water temperature, but it could have been my thermometer. In any event, it nice to have the ten degree increments as opposed to the competitors offerings, which generally have thirty degree steps. Totally impressed with The WEBstaurant store communication and shipping speed. Product arrived in perfect shape and seems to be a quality unit. I was looking for a cooktop with a Schott glass surface, but the only one seemed to be the Waring WIH400 but it was much more expensive. Just getting started with induction cooking, but looking forward to putting this unit through the paces. So far, I am very impressed !!
Benjamin E. Posted on 01/02/2014
I purchased this induction base on price and review. I had other inductions that cost me near in the five hundreds each and take weeks to arrive. This induction is good for heat up soup, curry or even stock pot. Its heat up pretty fast(approx 1-2 mins for soup). Good purchase and arrived supper fast. I also planing to get more for the 3500 watt
Jintanun M. from Restaurant name here Posted on 10/14/2013
I use this all the time. I'm glad I bought it, It heats up water to boiling in no time. This range is good for making pasta or soups. You can cook anything on it if you have the right pans.
Chris B. from CBear Posted on 10/01/2013
I've been using my Avantco IC1800 for over than a month now and it is everything I hoped it was and more. I'm an amateur cook and my specialty is southern barbecue and its side items. I was impressed with the ability of this unit to simmer 2-3 gallons of barbecue sauce or Brunswick stew. Both of these items are very sweet and on a conventional stove require near constant stirring to avoid burning. Not so with this induction range. A setting of 180* is a fine simmer with no sticking. Since there isn't a burning problem the timer is great for setting with the confidence that I can turn my back on what were once tedious tasks where a distraction from the stirring has ended in disaster more than once. 170 mins is just right for a 3-hour Brunswick stew simmer time. Other timed tasks like rice or grits also benefit from the timer. I didn't expect this small unit to be capable of it but it has really shined in the pasta dept as well, quickly bringing 1-2 gallons of water to a boil and maintaining it for 1-2 lbs of pasta. I tested 1 gal of water in a stainless (but magnet-test passed) stock pot on both the Avantco and my DCS natural gas range top. Cold water from standing start: Avantco, 17.5 mins to rolling boil and DCS range, 18.5 mins. I was worried that I might not have a sturdy enough electrical circuit for this bad boy. I've yet to trip the 20amp breaker even set on high for nearly an hour. I've also used the unit as a chafing heat source on big pots of chili and soup. I read a lot of reviews and regardless of model the inability to simmer slowly or operate as a warmer were complaints that many made of their choices of induction ranges. I know that the Avantco must cycle at its lowest wattage to accomplish it, but its use as a warmer warrants no complaint from me. The heavier the vessel the less obvious the on/off cycles are. I found that a nice heavy cast iron/porcelain dutch oven was ideal for serving from, but the heavy-bottomed multilayer clad stainless stock pots ran a very close second. Other than the obvious aluminum (throw-away) Teflon skillets, I've had very few items of cookware that were unusable with the Avantco. Sadly only my smallest pressure cooker had enough ferrous metal to pass the magnet test. But it worked like a charm. Both, by coming to a steam-generating boil very fast, and also the ability to set the temp on about 200* kept the "jiggler" active a couple of times a minute. Perfect! It had been so hard to control even a gas flame for consistent steam pressure but the Avantco's ability to set the temp (and I can't imagine how it does it) and the timer makes it perfect for timed pressure cooking. And it does it and all other cooking without heating up the kitchen so much like the regular range does. The handles stay cooler also. Unless it is a long cook time I find a rarely need a potholder to lift a pot from the unit. This range has become my "goto eye" for cooking and is the first eye to be used when I've got several items and need the built-in as well. It is always out on the island plugged in and ready. Gentle enough for a quick omelet for one and brawny enough for a dinner party with lobster, there was no mistake made with the selection of this unit. I highly recommend it.
Dewey D. from Hubcap & Wheel Posted on 09/29/2013
We've used these units for a few years now. The problem with them is that the fan either quits or fails and then the unit overheats. Webstaurant has replaced the ones that failed during the 6 month warranty period, thankfully. We never had this problem with our much more expensive Vollrath units. I guess that is the trade off.
Paul H. from Paul H. Posted on 09/10/2013
Thanks for reviewing this item! This is designed to be a step up from an introductory induction range but is still offered at a great price. If you are looking for a range designed for high volume use, we recommend the Vollrath Mirage Pro 59500P Countertop Induction Cooker.

The Avantco IC-1800 is a very excellent unit. I have only had this unit for about 2 weeks but I am very impressed with it. It is very easy to use, very well constructed and very safe to use. WEBstaurantSTORE is EXCELLENT with their service. I live in western Canada and this unit was delivered within 3 days to my door. I was expecting 7-10 days. I was very impressed. This unit is 120 volt which can be used in any household. I really like the timer feature that ranges from 5 min. - 175 min. and then will shut off. The 15 presets on this are far superior than I've seen on any other unit that I've looked at elsewhere. If you press the HEAT/HOLD button, it will switch over to a temperature read out of which you can adjust with the control knob. Temperatures range from 140F - 460F which is great for anything from melting chocolate to searing a steak or roast. So far I've made chocolate sauce, stir fry, seared a roast and have made several breakfasts with eggs, pancakes and bacon. When the temperature is adjusted it is very quick to adjust. The sturdy aluminum structure along with the FULL glass top makes this unit not only a quality unit but it looks good as well. The price is every bit comparable to the cheaply built units I've seen advertised on TV and other units as well. When I say cheaply made I'm talking about the tops melting, seams coming apart and very poor temperature stability along with very few temperature settings and the controls not anywhere near the quality what the IC-1800 is. I have not come across any cons with this unit as of yet. If I do, I will certainly post it. Keep up the good work and service.
Timothy R. Posted on 07/07/2013
This unit performs admirably and cooks well. It has max power for 110 and has a good footprint. I like induction for simmering soups, sauces and stews. It keeps a nice even temperature very well. There is a couple of issues, thought. I would rather have buttons to control the settings, as I continually bump the knob and change the setting accidentally. Also, my unit has an electrical hum that is very annoying. It seems to get louder the higher the setting. I don't know if this is a problem of the line, or just my unit. All in all, this is a good unit for the price.
Tim B. from Bradshaw's Kitchen Posted on 04/20/2013
Thanks for your review! The noise that you are hearing is from a fan that works to prevent the induction range from overheating.

I normally don't write reviews, I made an exception in this case. So far this cooktop is excellent. It is quiet, it seems very well made, has a larger cooking area (better heat distribution), requires a larger footprint pan, 4 3/4 Minimum, not really a big deal. This unit seems to be of industrial quality. It WILL boil multiple pots of water without a problem. This is not the best looking unit out there, but thats NOT why I bought it. It WORKS! and looks professional, not to mention the pans/pots stay put on the cooking area. There is virtually NO vibration from operation, much quieter too. Time will tell, I am taking a gamble it will last for a long time as I'm not using it in a commercial capacity. It has been excellent-So Far. I'm going to have to buy a couple more pots with a larger footprint (base) but it's worth it, time savings, speed, ease of use, savings from not using my electric range. Good service from WEBstaurant Store as well, recieved in good condition and quickly.
Mike G. from Personal Inductor ! Posted on 03/28/2013
This product is great for people that run small catering businesses. It plugs in anywhere, and is easily transported. It heats the products well and cleans with a damp cloth.
Tom M. Posted on 02/23/2013
This is a nice counter top range because it easily plugs in anywhere! Great for little cooking demos on the go! Great for making caramel!!!
Eric K. Posted on 10/03/2012
This induction burner is easy to control the temperature. Also since its an induction burner the surface of the burner does not get hot. Great deal.
Aaron H. Posted on 09/21/2012
I've been amateur cooking for nearly 50 years and always preferred gas. No more. Fire has it's place in BBQ, smoking, and high searing. I will still use my electric pressure cooker, sous vide and rice cooker. But induction cooking will handle all the rest. 1. It is fast. I did a quick experiment using a 3.5 qt steel pot, 2 quarts of cold tap water. My 12,000 BTW cooktop burner boiled the water in 14 min 30 seconds. The Avantco cooktop did it in 9 min 5 sec. As a control, I also boiled 1 quart of cold tap in an Adagio electric kettle and it took 4 minutes 30 seconds. 2. It won't burn food for difficult heating tasks. I needed to melt butter in a pnn for a roux. Setting the temperature to 210 I was able to turn my back and not worry about it. I am able to adjust the temperature from searing steaks to gently frying eggs. This makes these tasks really easy. 3. This Avantco is built very solidly. The basic structure is stainless steel. The top is glass. The only plastic is the knob for the power control and the front control panel. This could be used commercially. Overall, this unit will earn its space on your kitchen's countertop over any other electric appliance.
Clinton U. Posted on 09/02/2012
convenient in a small kitchen. Heats up very quickly and seems sturdy. Gets very hot as well. Would recommend, even though I was torn between this and the small one.
Pop K. from Pop Karma Posted on 07/26/2012
I really enoy this induction cooker. The safety features will not allow unit to heat with out the pot. Compact for easy storage and cools very rapidly.
Michael V. from Jazzy Rupert's Cafe Posted on 05/28/2012
Great cooktop. Heats very quickly and is cool to the touch. I wish I knew about induction years ago. I have no range in our kitchen so this is a lifesaver.
Jason W. from Osterville Village Cafe Posted on 04/05/2012
If you have never tried a induction cooker you don't know what your missing they are great and this one is the best price you can find for the quality.
