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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cook Love it
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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dralice Very Pleasantly Surprised
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by MMMM best hotplate ever!
I bought this to cut propane use (our 'regular stove') in our off-the-grid solar house. Easy to use, easy to clean and very hot. Mostly I use the lower settings, 300,500,700 watts. This is the best 'hotplate' I've ever used. Suggestions: a TWO burner 'Mr. Induction',, and, ultimately I'd like a similarly inexpensive two burner (who needs four?) induction stovetop to build into a counter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allie FANTASTIC
The price has gone up from $49. I figured it was a piece of junk but this stovetop unit is absolutely FANTASTIC. No escaping heat or flames around the edges of the pan...all the heat goes directly from the unit into your cooking pan. No worry about my wooden spoon catching fire if left in the pan while on because there are no flames or excess heat. The unit itself stays cool...only the pan gets hot. And it uses about 70% less energy than gas or electric ranges and its much faster because you lose no heat. This inexpensive unit (compared to others I've seen) does everything they do and it is actually fun to use. I couldnt believe how nice the pork chops came out. I havent used my gas range since I bought this. To me, its actually fun to use. I highly recommend this.
