"RB is 1000 watts."

Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go. It's well-made, effective, and easy to install. Don't try to cook complex dishes you may be eating raw food. When we moved into our full electric house we bought a very nice smooth top range. It gets really hot really fast, so you have to be careful which settings to use. It also cools quickly and is very easy to clean.

Kalorik DKP-21898 Final Thoughts

"We used it daily."

I almost didn't purchase based on negative reviews. This 1800w hot plate is powerful, And the stove top is still spacious. I have a much more expensive model of my own. I almost didn't purchase based on negative reviews. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal. But it's the price you pay for a small unit.

"Hightly recommend it."

Simple but effective it will turn off when left at high for more than 30 minutes. Well, after 12 years, I am stuck with a 30 inch range and four burners. I reviewed all the burners and chose this due to the Cuisanart brand name. Boil away your beverage and crack your cup, never mind destroy your domicile. When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. I was skeptical of my purchase, after reading previous reviews.

"The price can't be beat."

It heats up really fast and doesn't require using induction cookware. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! I love it and happy with the purchase. We hardly ever use our RV gas cooktop anymore. It cooked much faster with much more control than a regular gas or electric burner. Bought this as a temporary burner while remodeling the kitchen. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect.

"I'd recommend it!"

Purchased to use to keep my coffee warm. It takes forever to reach the 5 ready temperature. This unit is excellent, far superior to the old style coil-type hot plates. I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. Pleasantly surprised at the value for the quality, so far reliable, product. It works just like my stove, but portable and more convenient. You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down.

"Not this one."

I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. Such a great alternative to a stove! You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down. Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. But it's the price you pay for a small unit. No beeping, or warning to come look at what's cooking. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop.

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.

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.

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.

"Glad I did."

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.

Try it and you'll get e0 on the display. First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully. I also bought my children a set of high end kitchen craft cookware. I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. I use this at least twice a day and sometimes even three times a day! Superb control, useful heat level indicator light.

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.

Boil away your beverage and crack your cup, never mind destroy your domicile. If your pan boils over you aren't paying attention. Stable platform and works great with all types of cookware. The first step I took was to READ the manual. I did cook on this model Christmas Day. I researched for weeks comparing different brands and their functions. First, I struggle wanting a 36 inch gas range with six burners.
