"Glad I did."

Would benefit from being further apart. I have a much more expensive model of my own. For the price, this is the one to get. I can tell by complaints this step was skipped. I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. 00 until I get my regular stove repaired. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up.

"Clean up is easy."

If you much more than boil water, this thing is a bad joke. Have had is for almost a year now with no problem! I love it and happy with the purchase. This 1800w hot plate is powerful, And the stove top is still spacious. If you are accustomed to gas, well then, electric just isn't as efficient. When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. It's heavy duty very well constructed and a dream to cook on.

"Works great."

We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. Mere conductivity won't trigger the sensor.

"Worked well."

I did cook on this model Christmas Day. We have used all of the features, and they all work great! The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. I use this at least twice a day and sometimes even three times a day! Initially to let off the vapors from the protective coating before it's first use. This is perfect as a backup mini stovetop. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect.

"At a power setting of 7."

Have a lake loft and it fits perfectly on top of my convection toaster oven. I have a much more expensive model of my own. This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully. Such a great alternative to a stove! I have a much more expensive model of my own.

"Cools down quicker."

5 inches high and has a 3 foot long cord. It gets really hot really fast, so you have to be careful which settings to use. The temp settings were a bit off, but workable. Cleanup is so much easier and faster with this little device. If you are accustomed to gas, well then, electric just isn't as efficient. It is small, but what can you expect from a portable item.

"Edit on above review."

I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. Did a lot of research before I chose this brand. I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. I use this at least twice a day and sometimes even three times a day! I can't imagine better value for your money. We had an emergency and had to use the electric mini stovetop for a while. Stable platform and works great with all types of cookware.

"Note on burners."

Since then I have cussed the thing every time I used it. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. The metal surface makes easy to clean. It works just like my stove, but portable and more convenient. There was a discount if we bought the cookware to go with it, which we did. This limits heat transfer slowing temperature change. It works like any other electric range.

"It functions very well."

I did order two Duxtop pans this may make a difference. 5 inches high and has a 3 foot long cord. First, I struggle wanting a 36 inch gas range with six burners. I have a much more expensive model of my own. So until I purchase my induction top range, this will suffice. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of five is the lack of a few features.
