Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John Very useful induction cooktop unit, with limitations
The unit came packed sufficiently and with clear instructions. Overall, I rate it as "good" due to the typical induction limitations and a weird lower-temperature functioning. Typical induction limitations include correctly sized, induction-ready pans. Anything smaller or larger is hit or miss. As for the lower-temperature cooking? Well, it is a time-division thing where the coils are powered to a medium level for part of the time, so it can be annoying hearing the pulsing and waiting for the pan to stabilize temperature. Otherwise, a good unit that is perfect for making sensitive dishes like caramel or low temp items that are too difficult on a gas range.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jess Make sure your pots/pans are magnetized
This product is amazing....as long as you have magnetized pots and pans. I had to buy all new pots and pans because none of mine are magnetized. Won't work with normal ones.

I always liked gas the best but the induction is even better. Best if both worlds: smooth cooktop, very very fast heating. All with regular outlet, no special instillation Easy to get used to- I cooked perfect rice first try
The digital options, including timer make it a great overall choice. Usually do not like being asked to review purchases but this one is too great not to tell everyone
There. Is a fan inside, which does make some noise but I got used to it quickly

I was just amazed by how rapidly this cooking device heats water. As long as i use the recommended cookware it performs to perfection. It is extremely efficient and conserves heat. Once the pan, or my OXO tea kettle, are removed and it turns off there is no residual heat. Been needing an excuse to order some more cast iron cookware. Even works well with my pressure cooker. I love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FinickyTechGuy Awesome cooktop!
I bought this cooktop to replace my coiled electric cooktop. This induction cooktop sends the electric coil, halogen, and other cooktops back to the stone age. It can boil water (for the same volume) faster than my 1100 watt microwave, can cook pancakes flawlessly, can simmer or stew better than gas stoves. The only drawback is that it requires cookwares with bottom that contain iron. A lot of the Farberware and Cuisinart "stainless steel" cookwares did not pass the test. However, cooking a piece of steak on the old school cast iron skillet was fast and to perfection. Lots of safety features to boot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HBGmom24 Not a deal at all
The price was right but everything else about this product was wrong. The instruction book was very incomplete. The product took ten minutes to start heating a practice pan of water while my electric stove took exactly the same amount of time for the exact same amount of water in the same pot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Amazing Speedy Heat
As long as your pots and pans work with Mr. Induction, it's a no brainer. Get the thing. Try it. I have a set of stainless steel Caphalon pots and pans. Only my rounded bottom medium size pot works. The other pots and pans get a beeping & it refuses to function cuz of the safety feature. The pot or pan must be in contact. And it has to be the right magnetic properties for the hot plate. Anyway once I figured that out, I could have returned in frustration. But I'm keeping it for that one pot. Why? Cuz Mr. Induction is so fast & efficient. I am amazed by the thing. So I'm keeping it. And I love using it with that 1 pot.
