"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 price can't be beat."

It heats up really quickly and is used mainly on our Kitchen island. First, I struggle wanting a 36 inch gas range with six burners. I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. Overall it was worth to have it as a portable stove. The metal surface makes easy to clean. The temperature controls are immediate to touch. Will update about its longevity after some use.

"This thing is great!"

It works well with the two burners at once. 00 until I get my regular stove repaired. I have been very satisfied, and it did the tasks we needed for over a month. When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. I currently live upstairs in a shared house. This is perfect as a backup mini stovetop. The temp settings were a bit off, but workable.

"But that's ok for us."

I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. Pleasantly surprised at the value for the quality, so far reliable, product. When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. This 1800w hot plate is powerful, And the stove top is still spacious. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck. I currently live upstairs in a shared house.

"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.

"-Easy to clean."

It's heavy duty very well constructed and a dream to cook on. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds! Since then I have cussed the thing every time I used it. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop. I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. Boil away your beverage and crack your cup, never mind destroy your domicile. They clean up extremely well and are easy to use.

It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. I also bought my children a set of high end kitchen craft cookware. Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. Initially to let off the vapors from the protective coating before it's first use. Induction ready cookware is very effective. I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck.
