this item is a real wow. quality construction and innovative design. It's fast, responsive and totally adjustable. Other induction units have maybe 10 settings. This one allows you to set a temperature, or turn a dial and have 100 PRECISE settings as a percentage of power. Fast, more responsive to changes in settings than a gas burner and totally accurate. It has immediately become my favorite cooking heat source.
electric burners were hotter, gas more adjustable, this unit does both better faster AND it doesn't heat up the kitchen.
After reading many reviews on Induction Cookers, I chose this one A. Because of power, B. Because of price, and C. Because of it being sold by a Restaurant supply store. The unit is very attractive, solid to the touch, and materials seem to be of very high quality. The upfront digital control panel is very user friendly, and has the touch and feel of quality. The ceramic cook top will comfortably accommodate my Presto 6 qt pressure cooker down to the little 5 in. sauce pan I use to melt butter in. The unit is whisper quiet when operating, there is no buzzing sounds that I have read about in other units to include Major Brand Cook tops and Ranges. A couple of test I ran show the Cooker to be of a 10 Star rating. Using my electric range, large burner which used 2,800 Watts of power, using the 6 qt pressure cooker with 3 cups of cold water, it took the range 4 min. and 14 sec, to bring the pressure cooker up to full pressure. When the Induction cooker arrived I preformed the same test. The Induction Cooker at 1,800 Watts only took 3 min. 33 sec. to bring the pressure cooker up to full pressure. I am not a mathematician but I know somewhere in there is a savings. The next test was to see how cool the burner ran at the full 1,800 watts, so I placed a strip of plain white paper on the burner and repeated the first test. The paper remained as is, not a spot. When High Fidelity sound was invented I was very impressed. This Induction Cooker has impressed me even more than HiFi. I would recommend this unit to anyone, and everyone.
Second unit-second review: After a month of testing I made the decision that Induction Cooking was the only way to fly and ordered a second unit. With limited space in my kitchen it was necessary to make a modification to my electric range to accommodate the 2 Induction Cookers, this was done by ordering a custom cut cutting-board to place on top of the range after removing the 4 burners (see photo). If you are a fan of fried foods as I am you'll love using the Induction Cooker. With the choice of using power setting from Temp or Watt setting it is possible achieve almost any desired cooking level. I said almost as when cooking that large pot of spaghetti sauce all day I was unable to find a setting that would simmer at a very low boil. I found a solution to this by placing 2 large CorningWare dinner plates on top of the Induction cooker and then placing the pot on the plates (see photo) This produced the perfect low simmer, also works great when doing a pot of bean soup. Fried foods come out perfectly using a setting of 212º, After bringing water to a boil on hi setting, pasta cooks well at 800 watt setting. That perfect pot of rice is achieved by using 2 ½ cups of water to 1 cup of rice. Bring water to a boil on hi setting, when water comes to a boil reduce heat to 212º and add rice then reduce heat again to 176º and place the lid on the pot, then set the timer for 20min. At the end of the cycle restart the cooker and lower the temp to 146º and set the timer for an additional 10min. At the end of the cycle, bingo you have the perfect pot of rice. I find the Induction cooker very versatile and a want to have item for every kitchen. As stated in my previous review the unit is very well made, very attractive, and blends in well in any decor. Recommended cookware is Stainless Steel with encapsulated aluminum bottoms, up to 11 inches. Cast Iron will work but heat distribution is not as good as the Stainless Steel, the same for Carbon Steel cookware, a diameter of 8 inches or less will work. After over a month of cooking on the Induction Cooker I have all pro's and no con's. Good Cooking
Quiet and powerful. This unit replaced a less expensive commonly found unit when shopping for induction cooktops. This one cooks evenly using a 12 inch griddle the other unit had trouble with a 10 inch griddle. Love the control you get with the power dial. Heats pan up fast and doesn't heat up the kitchen.
I bought this burner for cooking outdoors while RVing. I read reviews of less expensive units having small or uneven hot areas and not being adjustable enough. After more research I spent twice as much as I planned and couldn't be happier. This thing is amazing! 100 to 400 degrees in 10 degree increments almost instantly. 12 inch fry pan was heated perfectly evenly. Build quality was excellent. I'm so happy with this burner I'm using it on my counter at home instead of my old ceramic topped range. I can't imagine how to improve this product. It's perfect and well worth the money.
