"Fast delivery."

Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. Purchased this to accommodate several needs. It is 20 inches long, 10 inches wide, 2. If you are accustomed to gas, well then, electric just isn't as efficient. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up. But you don't need those features for 95% of your cooking. We hardly ever use our RV gas cooktop anymore.

"It arrived as scheduled."

I have a much more expensive model of my own. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck. I researched for weeks comparing different brands and their functions. All I know is this thing is the bomb. Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. 00 until I get my regular stove repaired. Yes it can be plugged into a surge protector if you choose to do so.

"The highest is 8."

I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. Much better quality than what I had previously and cheaper. Have had is for almost a year now with no problem! I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. This little upstart hotplate has been a lifesaver. The only caveat is you will have to toss your non magnetic cookware. We hardly ever use our RV gas cooktop anymore.

Cadco CSR-3T Final Thoughts

"I figured out the timer."

So surprised how lightweight and good looking this is in person. It's more of an upper limit setting. I've given up on expensive coffee pots that break in short period of time. There was a discount if we bought the cookware to go with it, which we did. I was skeptical of my purchase, after reading previous reviews. When we moved into our full electric house we bought a very nice smooth top range. It heats up really fast and doesn't require using induction cookware.

"Wonderful!"

I did cook on this model Christmas Day. When it gets up to the designated temperature, the light goes off. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds! Now I will use it whenever an extra burner is required. There are downsides to this, however. When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. There are downsides to this, however.

"Happy with the purchase!"

Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. When it gets up to the designated temperature, the light goes off. It has been a good decision to acquire this piece for the kitchen. Any cookware used MUST pass the magnet test. We hardly ever use our RV gas cooktop anymore. Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. 00 until I get my regular stove repaired.

Yes it can be plugged into a surge protector if you choose to do so. Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. I can't imagine better value for your money.

"I LOVE this cooktop!"

If you much more than boil water, this thing is a bad joke. It is 20 inches long, 10 inches wide, 2. Easy to control dial for continuous heating levels. Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. It's heavy duty very well constructed and a dream to cook on. It heats up really quickly and is used mainly on our Kitchen island. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop.

"Very handy!"

My excellent 40 year old Farberware pans didn't work. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck. I purchased this item after an earthquake destroyed another one for emergencies. So, this is a perfect solution to use upstairs and I can cook a full meal easily. We have used all of the features, and they all work great! My old one began acting up by working sometimes and sometimes not working at all. This little upstart hotplate has been a lifesaver.

Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. Yes it can be plugged into a surge protector if you choose to do so. 00 until I get my regular stove repaired. The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. I did cook on this model Christmas Day. If your pan boils over you aren't paying attention. It is 20 inches long, 10 inches wide, 2.

"I appreciate that."

It heats up really quickly and is used mainly on our Kitchen island. It is small, but what can you expect from a portable item. Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. There are downsides to this, however. The shared kitchen is too small for more than one person to cook. Have had is for almost a year now with no problem!

"Really convenient."

This limits heat transfer slowing temperature change. I have a much more expensive model of my own. 00 until I get my regular stove repaired. The temp settings were a bit off, but workable. The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. No beeping, or warning to come look at what's cooking. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal.

"At a power setting of 7."

Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. It's superior to electricity in safety and convenience. This is a good backup and when meals are light and easy to prepare. The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. The unit defaults to 5 in power mode when turned on. This cooktop seems to be the best value I've found. Pleasantly surprised at the value for the quality, so far reliable, product.

"We love it!"

A cup of water boils in 30 seconds! Well, after 12 years, I am stuck with a 30 inch range and four burners. This is hard on holidays with 30+ family members coming for dinner. It takes forever to reach the 5 ready temperature. I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. If there were adjustment in smaller increments, I'd give it five stars.
