Oster CKSTSB100-B-2NP Final Thoughts
"It arrived as scheduled."
So surprised how lightweight and good looking this is in person. It also cools quickly and is very easy to clean. The four legs did not heat up to damage any solid surface of my countertop. It works just like my stove, but portable and more convenient. I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. I typically use a large skillet and a small pan at the same time to cook my meal. Boil away your beverage and crack your cup, never mind destroy your domicile.

"It heated up quickly."
I researched for weeks comparing different brands and their functions. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college. This is a good backup and when meals are light and easy to prepare. It is a spacious kitchen and heats the burners very quickly and efficiently. Just what we needed remodeling kitchen have no stove. Temperature control is another matter. Works exactly as expected and is great value for the money.

"-Easy to clean."
This stove has very manageable size and weight, very easy to carry around. There are downsides to this, however. I also bought my children a set of high end kitchen craft cookware. This cooker is like gas in its speed of response, control, and even-ness of heat. I did cook on this model Christmas Day. It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. Stable platform and works great with all types of cookware.

"This is amazing!"
Initially to let off the vapors from the protective coating before it's first use. I have a stove and I STILL use the stove top lol! I was skeptical of my purchase, after reading previous reviews. The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. So until I purchase my induction top range, this will suffice. This is hard on holidays with 30+ family members coming for dinner. The burner is sturdy and well built of solid sheet metal.

My old one began acting up by working sometimes and sometimes not working at all. It's more of an upper limit setting. I can tell by complaints this step was skipped. We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! I got this as a replacement for another brand. I did order two Duxtop pans this may make a difference. Now I will use it whenever an extra burner is required.

The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of five is the lack of a few features. First of all I would like to say that this inductive burner performed wonderfully.

"RB is 1000 watts."
I can't imagine better value for your money. I guess after 7 years of every day use it was time for a new one anyways. Our house is in a neighborhood that has no natural gas. It's heavy duty very well constructed and a dream to cook on. I have a much more expensive model of my own. Our house is in a neighborhood that has no natural gas. It works like any other electric range.

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.

"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.

Try it and you'll get e0 on the display. If your pan boils over you aren't paying attention. Induction ready cookware is very effective. Temperature control is another matter.
