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.

"Highly recommend."

I love this product so much if it stopped working in six months I'd buy another one! The temperature controls are immediate to touch. My Duxtop portable cooker works as advertised. I'd recommend this, as I have a great experience with this product. They clean up extremely well and are easy to use. The unit defaults to 5 in power mode when turned on. I researched for weeks comparing different brands and their functions.

Classic Cuisine 82-2009 First Impressions

"Heats evenly and quickly."

You do have to get used to the lag times both heating up and cooling down. There was a discount if we bought the cookware to go with it, which we did. Overall it was worth to have it as a portable stove. When it gets up to the designated temperature, the light goes off. I've given up on expensive coffee pots that break in short period of time. I got this as a replacement for another brand. Since then I have cussed the thing every time I used it.

  • Multi-Function 1800W Portable Induction Cooker Cooktop Burner - Black by Classic Cuisine
  • BUILT IN SAFETY FEATURES –The Classic Cuisine Induction Cooker has two very important built in safety features. The cooktop will shut off if the pan has not been properly placed on the unit, or once the pan has been removed from the unit. We also included an easy to use built in safety lock. When engaged, the lock prohibits the unit from operating
  • DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL WITH CONVENIENT PRE-PROGRAMMED COOK SETTINGS – There are 5 pre-programmed power settings for common cooking from boiling water to deep frying and several in between. The “stir-fry” setting allows you to control the temperature ranging from 60 – 240 degrees Celsius (140 – 460 degrees Fahrenheit) for the perfect cook temperature for every type of food. You can also choose from 10 power settings ranging from 200W – 1800W
  • COMPATIBLE FOR MANY TYPES OF COOKWARE – The cookware you use with this product must be induction compatible. Many of your favorite pots and pans will work on an induction cook top. All pans with an induction bottom, cast iron, stainless steel with a magnetic bottom are induction cooker compatible. An easy test, if a magnet sticks to the bottom of your pan it will work on the Classic Cuisine Induction Cooker. Bon Appetite!

"With no problems."

Any cookware used MUST pass the magnet test. I'd like a finer-grain adjustment, but no luck. It heats up really fast and doesn't require using induction cookware. They clean up extremely well and are easy to use. So happy I didn't pay attention to the negative reviews. Superb control, useful heat level indicator light. I like the simplicity of it the knobs are thick plastic.

It's light enough for my wife to move it around without any issues. If there were adjustment in smaller increments, I'd give it five stars. A cup of water boils in 30 seconds! I use this at least twice a day and sometimes even three times a day! I almost didn't purchase based on negative reviews. So the cheap non stick skillets and pans have to go.

NuWave First Impressions

"5 for general cooking."

It's well-made, effective, and easy to install. Don't try to cook complex dishes you may be eating raw food. Simple but effective it will turn off when left at high for more than 30 minutes. Unfortunately I was forced to return this item, but it worked very well otherwise. Fans are a little loud but not a big deal. Have a lake loft and it fits perfectly on top of my convection toaster oven. Our house is in a neighborhood that has no natural gas.

  • NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop Pro Chef Commercial-Grade NSF-Certified 1800-watt Induction Cooktop With Fast, Safe, Powerful Induction Cooking Technology, Automatic Shutoff, Programmable Stage Cooking Capabilities, Delay Feature & Temperature Range Between 100°F and 575°F, Adjustable In 5° Increments
  • ADVANCED INDUCTION TECHNOLOGY – The 1800-watt NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop (PIC) Pro Chef made with a series of magnetic induction coils in the 8-inch cooking surface. These coils generate magnetic fields that produce a warming reaction in steel and iron-based pots and pans, producing heat directly in the cookware and less residual heat in your kitchen
  • NSF-CERTIFIED – The PIC Pro Chef has been tested and certified by NSF International, meaning it meets industry durability standards, passing a drop test with an impact of 1.5 ft lbs. This means that you can cook with confidence knowing the PIC Pro Chef’s glass surface won’t break, crack or shatter.
  • PRECISE TEMPERATURE CONTROL – While other portable induction cooktops can only cook as low as 140°F or as high as 420°F, with the NuWave Cooktop, you can sear a gourmet steak at 575°F or keep sauces warm at 100°F, all with the same unit. Best of all, the intuitive digital temperature controls let you adjust the cooking temperature in 5° increments with the press of a button.
  • SMART COOKING FEATURES – The portable 1800-watt PIC Pro Chef features 100 hours of memory that allows you to program your favorite cooking procedures, as well as a Delay function that allows you to initiate cooking when it's most convenient for you. The PIC Pro Chef also boasts a delayed shutoff feature for added convenience. It even lets you adjust the wattage so you can cook with limited power or with more than one appliance plugged into the same outlet.
  • SAFE & EFFICIENT – The PIC Pro Chef generates heat directly in the cookware itself, wasting virtually no energy while cooking your food and saving you money on your energy bill. By using no more than 1800 watts, the PIC conserves up to 90% of the energy wasted by traditional gas or electric stoves. And because the PIC Pro Chef doesn’t cook with any open flames or hot coils, the area around the cooktop remains cool. These safety measures greatly reduce the risk of fires and accidental burns

"I can do this!"

I also sautéed onions, celery, etc for dressing which was a piece of cake. Temperature control is another matter. For the price, this is the one to get. I reviewed all the burners and chose this due to the Cuisanart brand name. There are downsides to this, however. I promise you that if you get this stove top you will use it everyday. I almost didn't purchase based on negative reviews.

We were shocked at how well the larger burner works! Initially to let off the vapors from the protective coating before it's first use. I can't imagine better value for your money. I'll end up buying another for my teenage son when he goes off to college. If your pan boils over you aren't paying attention. The only caveat is you will have to toss your non magnetic cookware. This Double burner portable hot plate is perfect.

It gets really hot really fast, so you have to be careful which settings to use. Mere conductivity won't trigger the sensor. It did its job during our kitchen remodel!

Temperature control is another matter. The metal surface makes easy to clean. We had an emergency and had to use the electric mini stovetop for a while. The smaller right burner is just for simmering or warming. It has been a good decision to acquire this piece for the kitchen. I seldom use my stove and now do all my stovetop cooking on my induction burner. It is small, but what can you expect from a portable item.
