"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.

"This cook top is great."

Simple but effective it will turn off when left at high for more than 30 minutes. I've given up on expensive coffee pots that break in short period of time. I researched for weeks comparing different brands and their functions. It is a spacious kitchen and heats the burners very quickly and efficiently. I was skeptical of my purchase, after reading previous reviews. I promise you that if you get this stove top you will use it everyday. They clean up extremely well and are easy to use.

"I love it!"

The only caveat is you will have to toss your non magnetic cookware. Would benefit from being further apart. There was a discount if we bought the cookware to go with it, which we did. Works exactly as expected and is great value for the money. It cooked much faster with much more control than a regular gas or electric burner. It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. My excellent 40 year old Farberware pans didn't work.

"Fast delivery."

So happy I didn't pay attention to the negative reviews. Any cookware used MUST pass the magnet test. I did cook on this model Christmas Day. The metal surface makes easy to clean. The temperature controls are immediate to touch. Will update about its longevity after some use. Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook.

"Note on burners."

It cooked much faster with much more control than a regular gas or electric burner. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of five is the lack of a few features. But it's the price you pay for a small unit. Did a lot of research before I chose this brand. I love it and happy with the purchase. This cooker is like gas in its speed of response, control, and even-ness of heat. I promise you that if you get this stove top you will use it everyday.

National Standard Products Final Thoughts

"At a power setting of 7."

So, this is a perfect solution to use upstairs and I can cook a full meal easily. If there were adjustment in smaller increments, I'd give it five stars. Our house is in a neighborhood that has no natural gas. The shared kitchen is too small for more than one person to cook. First, I struggle wanting a 36 inch gas range with six burners. Cleanup is so much easier and faster with this little device. Now I will use it whenever an extra burner is required.

"This cooktop is amazing."

This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. It also cools quickly and is very easy to clean. So until I purchase my induction top range, this will suffice. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect. Will update about its longevity after some use. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop. We had an emergency and had to use the electric mini stovetop for a while.

The burner is sturdy and well built of solid sheet metal. Don't try to cook complex dishes you may be eating raw food.

Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. For the price, this is the one to get.

I did order two Duxtop pans this may make a difference. The temperature controls are immediate to touch. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! Our basement apartment only had a wet bar so we've had to get creative. It also cools quickly and is very easy to clean. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. I love it and happy with the purchase.
