    We have only had this for a year and have had to replace the element once (it popped and melted metal was all over the ceiling of the unit) and already have temperature inconsistencies again. When it works as intended it is great but I'm a little wary of this product.

    This is great. Not at hot as a gas one but not as expensive either. This is great for omelette finishing and light cheese melting.
