Nesco SB-01 First Impressions

"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.

Nesco SB-01 Final Thoughts

"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.

"RB is 1000 watts."

Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. My Duxtop portable cooker works as advertised. I can tell by complaints this step was skipped. Will update about its longevity after some use.

Garcima BN-L40 Final Thoughts

"I love it."

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.

La Paella BN-L50 First Impressions

"-Easy to clean."

I believe it is a good choice and a good price for a good double burner Hot Plate. Don't try to cook complex dishes you may be eating raw food. The metal surface makes easy to clean. It did its job during our kitchen remodel! Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook. If you much more than boil water, this thing is a bad joke. I promise you that if you get this stove top you will use it everyday.

La Paella BN-L50 Final Thoughts

"I'd recommend it!"

I can tell by complaints this step was skipped. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal. Have a lake loft and it fits perfectly on top of my convection toaster oven. If your pan boils over you aren't paying attention. I purchased this item after an earthquake destroyed another one for emergencies. But it's the price you pay for a small unit. Yes it can be plugged into a surge protector if you choose to do so.

"-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.

"However, we camp, a lot."

This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect. It is small, but what can you expect from a portable item. Will update about its longevity after some use. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up. Have had is for almost a year now with no problem! It works well with the two burners at once.

"Hightly recommend it."

I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. It has been a good decision to acquire this piece for the kitchen. This 1800w hot plate is powerful, And the stove top is still spacious. Induction ready cookware is very effective. Mere conductivity won't trigger the sensor. I also sautéed onions, celery, etc for dressing which was a piece of cake. I got this as a replacement for another brand.

"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. If you are accustomed to gas, well then, electric just isn't as efficient. This is a good backup and when meals are light and easy to prepare. 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.

"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.

I did cook on this model Christmas Day. Pleasantly surprised at the value for the quality, so far reliable, product. Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. It's more of an upper limit setting. This little upstart hotplate has been a lifesaver. Initially to let off the vapors from the protective coating before it's first use. 5 inches high and has a 3 foot long cord.

"Works great."

The first step I took was to READ the manual. I currently live upstairs in a shared house. Unfortunately I was forced to return this item, but it worked very well otherwise. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! Temperature control is another matter. So until I purchase my induction top range, this will suffice.

"Features are great."

The only caveat is you will have to toss your non magnetic cookware. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! It is a spacious kitchen and heats the burners very quickly and efficiently. You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down. Purchased this to accommodate several needs. This is perfect as a backup mini stovetop. This unit is excellent, far superior to the old style coil-type hot plates.
