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.

"However, we camp, a lot."

I also sautéed onions, celery, etc for dressing which was a piece of cake. This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. If you are accustomed to gas, well then, electric just isn't as efficient. It works just like my stove, but portable and more convenient. Induction ready cookware is very effective. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal. I promise you that if you get this stove top you will use it everyday.

OVENTE BGI101S Final Thoughts

"Very easy to unpack."

But you don't need those features for 95% of your cooking. We hardly ever use our RV gas cooktop anymore. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop. Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook. This 1800w hot plate is powerful, And the stove top is still spacious. It's superior to electricity in safety and convenience. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds!

"I'd recommend it!"

I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds! I believe it is a good choice and a good price for a good double burner Hot Plate. It heats up really quickly and is used mainly on our Kitchen island. The first step I took was to READ the manual. I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of five is the lack of a few features.

"This cook top is great."

Now I will use it whenever an extra burner is required. It heats up really quickly and is used mainly on our Kitchen island. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college. I believe it is a good choice and a good price for a good double burner Hot Plate. Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! For the price, this is the one to get.

"Very nice looking."

It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. If there were adjustment in smaller increments, I'd give it five stars. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds! I use this at least twice a day and sometimes even three times a day! I almost didn't purchase based on negative reviews. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. Mere conductivity won't trigger the sensor.

If you are accustomed to gas, well then, electric just isn't as efficient. I almost didn't purchase based on negative reviews. We had an emergency and had to use the electric mini stovetop for a while. Well, after 12 years, I am stuck with a 30 inch range and four burners. It is 20 inches long, 10 inches wide, 2. Yes it can be plugged into a surge protector if you choose to do so. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college.

00 until I get my regular stove repaired. Since then I have cussed the thing every time I used it. I love this product so much if it stopped working in six months I'd buy another one! The metal surface makes easy to clean. This cooker is like gas in its speed of response, control, and even-ness of heat. Any cookware used MUST pass the magnet test. When we moved into our full electric house we bought a very nice smooth top range.

"Fast delivery."

Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. This 1800w hot plate is powerful, And the stove top is still spacious. You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down. I can't imagine better value for your money. Our basement apartment only had a wet bar so we've had to get creative. We hardly ever use our RV gas cooktop anymore. First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully.

"-Easy to clean."

This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. There are downsides to this, however. I also bought my children a set of high end kitchen craft cookware. This cooker is like gas in its speed of response, control, and even-ness of heat. I did cook on this model Christmas Day. It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. Stable platform and works great with all types of cookware.

"Love this!"

I did order two Duxtop pans this may make a difference. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up. The unit defaults to 5 in power mode when turned on. I reviewed all the burners and chose this due to the Cuisanart brand name. Now I will use it whenever an extra burner is required. The only caveat is you will have to toss your non magnetic cookware. It's superior to electricity in safety and convenience.
