??POWERFUL AND PRECISE?? 17 power levels per cooking zone will be perfect to make any kind of meals from simmering to roast which will be one of the important decisions to buy this raised. Rating Voltage is 208-240V (2x 110V), 50/60Hz with maximum power output of 3100 Watt. Because of high voltage the electric plug is not included so we suggest to be hardwired directly onto 240V outlet.

This is an incredible bargain compared to high-end name-brand. It works almost as well (read on) at a small fraction of the price.
At first glance, there appear to be only 9 power levels, not 17. The instruction manual is rather cryptic, saying press a number twice, and again to return to the previous level. What it means is that there are two power levels associated with each number. A decimal point is displayed next to the number to indicate you are getting the higher-level power for that same number. (Meaning “1”, and “1.5”, and so on.) It toggles back and forth between Low and High for each number as you press the number repeatedly.
With my cookware, I have found that level 1 will raise water to 148 degrees, level 1.5 gets to 170, but perversely, when the water is already 210 (level 2), I can turn it down to 1.5 and the water stays at 210. Possibly an artifact of the conductivity in my specific pans. When the pan is hot, it takes less power to keep it hot. So don’t count on my temperatures for your pans. Do run your own tests before cooking that lobster in butter.
This cooker also uses cyclic energy bursts to achieve lower heat levels, which is less compatible with some foods than the more expensive cookers. For example, level 1 turns the power on for a few seconds, then off for a few more seconds, repeat. Depending on the specific pan used, the surface temperature of the pan may vary more or less widely during these power boosts. So you can’t melt chocolate directly on the pan because it will get too hot during the ON cycle, You have to use a water bath, or some other damping mechanism. That said, it works adequately, and for the price, you can adjust your cooking style to adapt. (or you can spend five or six times as much and get a high-end name-brand.)
If this is your first Induction cooker, be aware that the top-of-the-line induction cookers are easier to cook on, and do a better job than radiant electric or gas. I still like it better than my gas stove, and it’s so easy to clean compared to either gas or electric radiant–the surface never gets hotter than the bottom of the pan, and doesn’t stay hot very long. Virtually no chance of a fire with induction cookers. This one is far more powerful than the 120 v 2-burner units you may be comparing. This one is a smart, economical choice; only less than perfect at lower temperatures.

Top Critical Review


This is an update. One burner on the stovetop went out after five months but the manufacturer replaced the unit. The same burner on the unit has now stopped functioning (just about 13 months after I got the second unit and I am outside of the warranty. Because I cut out an opening in the countertop to accommodate the unit, I am not happy. I plan on looking for a name brand that will not have to replaced every year. The time spent installing it and the fear that it really will only last a year makes it an expensive proposition.
The stove top is almost a five. Because of the compact size, and the location of the controls it does not accommodate two large pots at the same time. But I was using two portable units before, which took up a lot of counter space, and this is a much better looking and sleeker option. Also I love the fact that there are 17 levels of power on each burner. Great price for what I got.
I contacted the seller because there is no direction in the manual for the electrical connections. They told me the wiring information was on the Amazon product page – not a place I would have looked. The manual also could stand to have the contact information for the seller. It has an “After Sales Service” section, but no contact information. Again, need to go to Amazon for it.

Customer Questions & Answers


What is the precison of temperature control (to the nearest 5 F., for example)?
Answer: Not sure on the 5F, but it??s 12 buttons in half step each, so 24 control options, all incredibly stable. I have cooked everything from scallops to salmon to warming up soup.

I cant find your ebay listing, can you give the reference? I need it shipped international
Answer: Actually we no longer have this cook top. We had to use this 220 V circuit for the charger of our new Tesla and have replaced it with a propane burner.

Where can I find your contact info for a warranty claim
Answer: I contacted the seller via amazon. They sent another with a return label for the old one.
