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.

"Clean up is easy."

I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. But you don't need those features for 95% of your cooking. The temp settings were a bit off, but workable.

"I LOVE this cooktop!"

The temp settings were a bit off, but workable. You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down. Our basement apartment only had a wet bar so we've had to get creative. Then I discovered the timer- which turns the whole unit off when time is up. I have two of these, in daily use since 2013 and 2015, respectively. I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. I did cook on this model Christmas Day.

Will update about its longevity after some use. I got this as a replacement for another brand. It is 20 inches long, 10 inches wide, 2.

ISILER CHK-CCA02 Final Thoughts

"We used it daily."

When it's not in use, I store it in one of the lower Kitchen cupboards. Pleasantly surprised at the value for the quality, so far reliable, product. Temperature range from low to high, so work well on either stir fry or slow cook. Our house is in a neighborhood that has no natural gas. I prefer using an electrical burner rather than gas so this is my only choice. Much better quality than what I had previously and cheaper. It works well with the two burners at once.

"Would recommend."

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.

"A great find!"

Easy to control dial for continuous heating levels. Did a lot of research before I chose this brand. If you much more than boil water, this thing is a bad joke. My Duxtop portable cooker works as advertised. The shared kitchen is too small for more than one person to cook. This little upstart hotplate has been a lifesaver. It's more of an upper limit setting.

"That escapes me."

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. The first step I took was to READ the manual. Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. It is small, but what can you expect from a portable item.

  • 1500 Watts portable electric cast iron burner for quick heat-up.

  • NOTE: Only for use with North American Electrical Standards, 120V 60Hz AC. ETL approved, 1-year Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty. New cooktops may give off light smoke or a slight burning odor the first time they are used. It is a normal reaction. This is not a defect in the product or cause for alarm, as there are protective oils used during the manufacturing process that need to "burn" away.
