Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Great Quality
I read the reviews before I purchased this product, and everything said is true. The heat is sent to the top plates which are cast iron. The advantage is nice even heat enough to boil water. The disadvantage is the cast iron takes some time to reach the temperature needed. I purchased this for my roommate to cook in the garage, as my previous roommates shared my kitchen and it was not a good situation. My roommate cooks daily with it and so far it's been almost 1 month of privacy, due to the quality and reliability of this product. I know there are burners available at 25% of the price, but other reviewers educated me about those. I bought this product to work and not fail, and so far it looks like it will last at least 20 years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dinah Exactly what I need for the space.
The order came when expected. The box was somewhat crushed. I looked for damage. I only realized there were small injuries - marks - when I saw it in different light some days later after installing it. These are not going to interfere with usage in any way, so it was not worth the trouble to return. I've had the sam model before and am perfectly pleased with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JanW Excellent portable cooktop
We bought this portable cook top so I could set up an "alternate" cooking area while our kitchen was being renovated. I paid a little more for this double burner and am so pleased! Both burners heat up quickly, and I can cook many of the meals I would normally make, such as rice, hamburger strogonoff, sauteed chicken, and macaroni & cheese! Water boils in a glass tea kettle within 8-9 minutes. The "minimum" setting on the burners keeps food warm very nicely, and the 1-2 settings hold a simmer well. I can't tell you how happy I am with this unit -- even though our kitchen won't be ready for 6-8 weeks, we definitely will not have to eat out as often since I can rely on the Waring Pro Double Burner. I would highly recommend it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marie Excellent burner with sturdy base.
I purchased a single Waring hotplate burner just to try it out. I am satisfied with its performance. I also like the fact that the body is heavy and provides a sturdy base for the cookware. It does not wobble and wiggle when you are cooking. I am returning the single burner and replacing it with this double burner because I could use an extra to burner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcreative Works great, glad I purchased this one!
I wasn't sure that to expect when purchasing this burner, but it worked great. I was easily able to figure out the temperature I needed and both burners are spaced well. They get very hot, I wasn't sure how much power they would have but was impressed with it. Also, very easy to transport and cooled down pretty quickly once I was packing up. Glad I bought it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JHk Heavy duty double burner.
While kitchen is under construction, this double burner is a life saver. Works really well. I have used it every day. Boiling water takes a bit of time, but when cooking with a nonstick frying pan, food cooks really quickly and holds heat for a long time. The unit is so easy to use and is of great quality.
