"The wife was not pleased."

The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. Yes it can be plugged into a surge protector if you choose to do so. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. I have been very satisfied, and it did the tasks we needed for over a month. No beeping, or warning to come look at what's cooking. So happy I didn't pay attention to the negative reviews. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck.

"Great little cooktop!"

Cleanup is so much easier and faster with this little device. Have had is for almost a year now with no problem! Our basement apartment only had a wet bar so we've had to get creative. Just what we needed remodeling kitchen have no stove. I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner.

"Definitely recommended."

This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect. If your pan boils over you aren't paying attention. Well, after 12 years, I am stuck with a 30 inch range and four burners. If there were adjustment in smaller increments, I'd give it five stars. It is 20 inches long, 10 inches wide, 2. It heats up really quickly and is used mainly on our Kitchen island. It also cools quickly and is very easy to clean.

"LB is 1800 watts."

It takes forever to reach the 5 ready temperature. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect. Don't try to cook complex dishes you may be eating raw food. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop. Simple but effective it will turn off when left at high for more than 30 minutes. It's superior to electricity in safety and convenience. It works like any other electric range.

"Coffee lovers understand."

I purchased 3 of these for my children for Christmas. I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. Did a lot of research before I chose this brand.

My old one began acting up by working sometimes and sometimes not working at all. Well, after 12 years, I am stuck with a 30 inch range and four burners.

Wiland Final Thoughts

"We'd buy it again."

Pleasantly surprised at the value for the quality, so far reliable, product. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of five is the lack of a few features. I can't imagine better value for your money. Works exactly as expected and is great value for the money. Cleanup is so much easier and faster with this little device. I use this at least twice a day and sometimes even three times a day! This cooker is like gas in its speed of response, control, and even-ness of heat.

"Price is fair."

The temperature controls are immediate to touch. Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. My old one began acting up by working sometimes and sometimes not working at all. Since then I have cussed the thing every time I used it. When it gets up to the designated temperature, the light goes off. It did its job during our kitchen remodel! Mere conductivity won't trigger the sensor.

"Great product."

This limits heat transfer slowing temperature change. Easy to control dial for continuous heating levels. It gets really hot really fast, so you have to be careful which settings to use. Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. It cooked much faster with much more control than a regular gas or electric burner. Our house is in a neighborhood that has no natural gas. So, this is a perfect solution to use upstairs and I can cook a full meal easily.

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.

"This thing is great!"

First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully. Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. I've given up on expensive coffee pots that break in short period of time. The only caveat is you will have to toss your non magnetic cookware. This is a good backup and when meals are light and easy to prepare. Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook. Try it and you'll get e0 on the display.
