"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.

"This cook top is great."

My old one began acting up by working sometimes and sometimes not working at all. This cooker is like gas in its speed of response, control, and even-ness of heat. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal. I have a stove and I STILL use the stove top lol! I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. It's well-made, effective, and easy to install.

"Works great."

First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully. It also cools quickly and is very easy to clean. I also made fresh green beans with very little water the same way. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. Much better quality than what I had previously and cheaper. This unit is excellent, far superior to the old style coil-type hot plates.

Techwood Final Thoughts

"Note on burners."

Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook. When we moved into our full electric house we bought a very nice smooth top range. I also sautéed onions, celery, etc for dressing which was a piece of cake. I researched for weeks comparing different brands and their functions. All I know is this thing is the bomb. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of five is the lack of a few features. I also sautéed onions, celery, etc for dressing which was a piece of cake.

"Very nice looking."

This cooktop seems to be the best value I've found. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up. I like the simplicity of it the knobs are thick plastic. I also sautéed onions, celery, etc for dressing which was a piece of cake. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college. We have used all of the features, and they all work great! Fans are a little loud but not a big deal.

The burner is sturdy and well built of solid sheet metal. I purchased this item after an earthquake destroyed another one for emergencies. There are downsides to this, however.

"A great find!"

Once you've got where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning. That is how much we love this cooktop! If you much more than boil water, this thing is a bad joke. I purchased 3 of these for my children for Christmas. So until I purchase my induction top range, this will suffice. I also bought my children a set of high end kitchen craft cookware. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds!
