"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.

"Wonderful!"

I did cook on this model Christmas Day. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop. It heats up really fast and doesn't require using induction cookware. Induction ready cookware is very effective. I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. Purchased to use to keep my coffee warm. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal.

"The manual is excellent."

Simple but effective it will turn off when left at high for more than 30 minutes. When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. I have a stove and I STILL use the stove top lol! Initially to let off the vapors from the protective coating before it's first use. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. Such a great alternative to a stove!

"Clean up is easy."

I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. But you don't need those features for 95% of your cooking. The temp settings were a bit off, but workable. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck. So, the extra two burners were perfect. Simple but effective it will turn off when left at high for more than 30 minutes. My Duxtop portable cooker works as advertised.

"I LOVE this cooktop!"

The temp settings were a bit off, but workable. You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down. Our basement apartment only had a wet bar so we've had to get creative. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. I did cook on this model Christmas Day.

"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.

"You'll love it."

Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. That is how much we love this cooktop! I did order two Duxtop pans this may make a difference. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck. It works well with the two burners at once.

"It arrived as scheduled."

So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. But you don't need those features for 95% of your cooking. The burner is sturdy and well built of solid sheet metal. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college. Our basement apartment only had a wet bar so we've had to get creative. Induction ready cookware is very effective. Now I will use it whenever an extra burner is required.

"I love it."

So until I purchase my induction top range, this will suffice. Cleanup is so much easier and faster with this little device. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works!

This is a good backup and when meals are light and easy to prepare. It heats up really fast and doesn't require using induction cookware. But you don't need those features for 95% of your cooking. It's superior to electricity in safety and convenience. Will update about its longevity after some use. I was skeptical of my purchase, after reading previous reviews. Mere conductivity won't trigger the sensor.

"So excited."

My old one began acting up by working sometimes and sometimes not working at all. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. Well, after 12 years, I am stuck with a 30 inch range and four burners. It's more of an upper limit setting.

"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.

Purchased this to accommodate several needs. I can't imagine better value for your money. I prefer using an electrical burner rather than gas so this is my only choice. There are downsides to this, however. This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. It's well-made, effective, and easy to install. First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully.
