I haven’t received it yet
I wish you included one N20 or at least told me ahead of time that i needed to get them. I finally got an order off amazon because everyone local was out of stock
I tried making with one cup of milk and I did like the dispenser
I bought this not only for the item itself but all the people saying the recipe book is great. I never got a recipe book. All I got was a card with two recipes listed. Not impressed with the recipes. Unless I didn’t get the book in my book package.
Culinary Torch With Gas Gauge
Shipped quickly. Love the product!
Love my EurKitchen whip creamer and when I Iost the gasket I found the website and was able to easily order a replacement which was shipped quickly.
Update March 2020I have been using this induction cooker daily for 3 years, and am cooking a meal on it as I write this. As noted below, it has had parts on the front melted from a hot pan, and the crack above the display has neither widened, nor been affected by cleaning/spills. It may have slowed down a bit, but that's hard to tell. All in all, from one who seriously uses this, it's been a very worthwhile purchase that I continue to recommend.Other than boiling water, don't be misled by cooking speed claims. Once the pot/pan is at the right temperature it will take as long to cook as any other conventional method. Its strength is with the immediate responsiveness to control and the area surrounding it remaining relatively cool, the heat going to the pan/pot, not the air. Anything that can be cooked on a conventional burner can be cooked on an induction burner.An induction cooker is different from a standard electric coil since the cooking surface not under the pan will remain relatively cool, however the area under the pan will become hot since the pan is also hot and transfers heat to that area of the glass. Instead of the heat loss we recognize as a warm or hot kitchen, the heat is 70-90% efficiently directed to the pan and little heat is lost to the air except from the hot pan. The cooker requires ferrous (metal)cookware that a magnet will stick to; aluminum or glass will not work unless a ferrous heating plate is put on the cook top that will transfer the heat to the non-ferrous material (not a recommended practice as it is not efficient ) The reason for this is that the cooker has an electromagnetic coil that creates an electrical field, which in turn causes the pot to heat up by the induced current since the cookware will not be as good a conductor as the copper coil in the cook top.In spite of what is commonly thought, cast iron can be used without scratching the glass. The solution is to simply use a thin flexible silicone baking mat to protect the glass, it will have no effect on the cooking. It is also possible to use a paper towel under other types of pans to contain overflow, or catch grease splatters since there is no open flame, or heated coil, although this should be checked once in a while just to be sure.Induction burners are energy efficient, easy to clean, and reacts as quickly to temperature changes as gas. The knob control, for me, is much easier to use than pushing a button. There aren't many choices if you prefer to use a knob, so I was happy to find this. When turned on, it will always indicate the central value of either 1000 watts, or 300F degrees; this makes it an easy task to turn down, or up. It will not retain values once turned off. While you can switch from watts to temperature while cooking, it will not give the equivalent, and the new setting will have to be set. Giving it a test run by making a stir fry with a flat bottom wok, fried/hard boiled eggs, old fashioned oatmeal, rice, and chili, it worked fine for all, with no drama, or issues. It does pulse noticeably at lower settings, but that is the nature of the beast, they all do this to some extent to maintain the temperature, it has had no effect on my cooking; YMMV. I unplug the burner when I'm not using it to: turn off the moving red dashes of the display, avoid voltage spikes, and to prevent it from being an 'energy vampire'.Because there is no open flame, or glowing coil, this is also a good bet for a dorm room, retirement home/apt., or where a conventional burner isn't permitted, plus it has the safety feature of turning off automatically, with or without a timer. As a word of caution, though, if you heat a pan, the glass surface under the pan can be hot enough to burn you from the transferred heat, even though the surrounding area is actually cool to the touch, so take some care as you cannot visually discern whether it is hot or not. The obvious holds true, it's a glass surface than can break if something is dropped upon it, tempered or not. Other than what you are cooking, there is no heat emitted that will heat up your kitchen.I haven't seen a recipe that calls for a temperature in watts, and not many that call for a specific temperature for use with a cook top; the majority call for the conventional high, medium and low level, but nearly all induction cookers have watt/temperature units. This comes with a handy temperature conversion guide, but a quick way to think about it is that it starts at medium (1000 watts), 1200 watts is medium high, and 1800 watts is high; 500- 600 watts is simmer or low medium and 200 watts is simmer. From there, high, medium and low, you cook as you always do, by looking at it and adjusting it as needed; the same would hold true for temperature.Physically, the burner has a top made of black tempered glass that is 11 inches wide and about 11 1/8 inches long, with 2 indicator circles in the center. The front, and back, slope forward and back, in an arc. The front is the control pa...
After reading many reviews on similar products, I was convinced that this cooktop was the best for under $100 and worth paying twice as much as the cheapest. I'm pleased to say it's a pleasure to use once you['ve mastered the small complexity of wattage vs temperature control. Induction cooktops in this price range don't really measure temperature, not knowing what is going on inside the pot. Whatever computer math they have programmed to estimate degrees based on power input really works, whereas reviews of other competing products find temperature control very iffy. Set it on wattage and crank it up to 1800 and you have water bubbling in less than a minute. Tap temperature and the default, 300F, gives a nice steady controlled rapid boil. Lower to 280 and perfect for steaming. Frying isn't as controlled since food cools the skillet less and less with cooking time, requiring your frequent attention to prevent scorching. The ball bearing fan that cools the electronics is nice and quiet, allowing use on tabletop. Really the only reason for 4 vs 5 stars is the terrible, super stiff power cord. It came coiled into a bundle and each bend has to be straightened as if it has a coat hanger in it. Then bend again to permanently fit the workspace - straight back to the rear of the countertop, bend at right angle to the left, bend straight up below the plug, bend the plug to go into the outlet. I would be afraid to bend it much for fear something would break inside.
This gets hot fast, easy to control heat, cools just as fast.
I ordered this countertop induction burner for use in my camper van but will not have an occasion to field test it for a few months. I did, however, try it out in my home and am very happy with the performance. The instructions are succinct and should be read and consulted. After a little bit of trial and error I am comfortable with the operational aspects and excited to try it out in the van. The portable burner boils water faster than anything other than a hotpot, and worked perfectly with all of my suitable cookware. The 'magnet' sticking to the bottom of the cookware was a perfect test for suitability! If I remember, after I use it on the road I will update this post.
Super sleek looking and delivers at awesome speeds...replaced these with another brand that were about 5 years old...love the knob to control the temperature...also appear to distribute the heat more evenly than the ones I threw out...Makes Cooking a blast and super easy to clean...so glad I purchased 2 of them!!!!
It will work for me. I dont like that when you pres the on and off button you still have to unplug from the autlet. But i will get usto
I purchased this because accident-induced memory loss was causing me to occasionally forget to turn off my stove-top burners. I ruined two pans & barely saved another as it was stainless steel & had no Teflon to buckle. I selected this unit because I liked the button to turn heat up & down. I also asked many questions, each answered in a timely manner and answered positively for my needs. This unit turns it's self off in seconds if a pan is removed, when it detects overheat, within two hours if no timer is set, within 3 hours if a timer is set. This unit is larger than some of the cheaper models so it should allow for larger pans. It has an audible fan that runs as long as the power is on, so I am more inclined to turn it off when I'm finished. My only issue at the moment is the new cord is very stiff and I have to twist it strongly to get it the correct way in the electricity socket on my stove-top.
I like how the top is all one piece. With this burner, one can control the temperature pretty exactly--more than other induction cooktops I've used, which is nice. Also, the beeping is not loud and annoying like on other models. The only quibble I have is that the icons look dated and could use an update, as well as the logo. It looks like someone drew it out in their basement. A great cooktop, though!
I've had digital controlled induction cooktops, and just my preference, I lean to knob controls, for the fast response when adjustments are needed. This cooktop works well, and the temperature control feature is accurate. I measured a variation of +/- 3 degrees F, and that may be due to not stirring perfectly, so very accurate. It also has a ~7second-delay auto-off feature when you take the pan off the cooktop, very handy when you're done and taking the pan to pour your stuff out...you don't need to remember to turn it off...it does it for you. Intuitive controls, easy to adjust, and I never needed the manual to figure out how to use it. You need a magnetic base on your cookware but these are very easy to find, and inexpensive. Induction cooking, IMO, is so much easier and superior to other methods, and the inexpensive cooktops and cookware make it affordable for most.
I bought this as an extra burner for sanitizing and boiling my jar lids while I am canning. I’ve always needed just one more burner. I have the canner on one, the tomatoes on one, the sauce on one and the vegetables on the other. However, this would be nice to take to hotels to cook up some quick Mac Ncheese for the kids and many other quick meals. I love that it comes with a back to store it in! Works really nice. Heats up well and won’t heat up until you have your pan on it, which is a great safety feature! I’m super happy with how well it functions!
This was my first time using an induction cook top so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I bought it more for use in the camper this summer than anything else, but wanted to give it a good test so I would not have any surprises while out camping. I have been using it for almost a month now and have been very happy with it. There is nothing I can cook on my stove top that couldn't be cooked on this small, portable and lightweight cook top. It has a knob that can control the heat settings with variations of 20 degrees at a time, so you can adjust the heat exactly where you need it to be. The heating pad can accommodate any of my pans from about 5 inches up to 10 inches in diameter, and heats them evenly no matter what I cook.Since this doesn't come with induction cookware, I did my research and found that any magnetic pan would work, so I could easily test my pans to find out which did and which did not work on this type of cooker. I have several cast iron pans, and found that these work well so that is mostly what I use on this cook top. I was concerned that the glass surface might be scratched by these pans, but learned that you can use a silicone mat or even a paper towel between the pan and burner since the cooking is done magnetically instead of heating up the burner. I'm still nervous about putting paper towels on a burner, but I've done it a couple of times and it works well while protecting the glass and absorbing any spills.If something does happen to spill though, it is pretty easy to clean up on this smooth glass surface. It Just takes a quick wipe with a damp cloth and it's petty well clean. They have even included a storage bag to keep it protected when in storage or while traveling. I thought this was a nice touch, although I haven't put it into storage since I got it out and started using it. I like it much better than cooking on my stove so it gained a permanent place on my countertop.
By far this is the easiest to use. Simple buttons and turn dial make it ideal for temperature control. To clean was very fast just use a wet clothE then a dry clothe and it’s good as new. It’s very portable and easy to carry and it even comes with its own canvas bag to store.
This product works well. No problems. It heats contents quickly, cleans up easily. I'm not crazy about how it looks on our counter but that's personal taste.
I had first received an unit which was inoperable. The seller more than was gracious in replacing this unit. I will also write a follow up to this review in 8 weeks to confirm its value.Addendum #1 I have received the replacement unit today, and it is operational. I will plan to begin using it in the AM, and post an updated review of the product after some use. For now, I can definitely say that the seller is a person of integrity and his word. Thank you.
I bought this to use in our kitchen at work. I LOVE IT!! Cooks my food so fast!I just wish I knew before that you need to buy Stainless Steel pots and pans for it. You cannot use Copper or certain other brands/types.No biggie though. It cools fast which I love,. Easy to clean. Easy to store. Heats up really fast.
Works like a dream - now we can simmer without burning.Bought this to supplement our high-end gas range burners that wouldn't turn down enough to simmer. We'd had induction cook tops in other houses for many years and liked them.A minor quibble is that the panel stays illuminated when the unit is turned off. Rather than flashing dashes and a blue glow, a discrete indicator would be preferable.
Fan does not seem to last and is nolonger quiet -- makes noise now after 4 months use -- the cooling fan unit is the weak link of the induction plate the sleeve bearing failed and the fan wobbles -- also the rotory setting selector is starting to skip settings and is a little tricky to set now -- you want a product to last especially the cooling fan -- still cooks and boils food and water ok but noisey ... expect it to fail completely in future ---
I’m really dumb and thought this was battery operated. So I bought it for camping. Obviously it’s not battery operated.But when my husband got home and saw it on the counter he was stoked. He’s been using it for practically every meal since we got it and doesn’t have any complaints yet. The food tastes great so I don’t have any complaints either. Except that I can’t take it camping like I originally planned. ;)
