Is the electrical suspect?

chris armstrong, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: I just bought this unit, have heated some water, and measured it's power characteristics with a Kill-A-Watt meter (was checking the capacity of the circuit). PROBLEM When the unit is off, it shows zero watts but 98 VA and 0.88 amps, continuous, never stops, all the time.

A new way to cook

J. Wasson, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I like the way it works. I had to replace a couple of pieces of my aluminum cookware but I expected to because induction cookers require steel. One stainless steel pot that I planned to use didn't work due to the alloy. Some of the old enameled pots that I seldom used work perfectly.

Petr "Vad", Amazon

  • Summary: It was bought at Amazon august 31 2009. SN: 09T00153, made in China. It has very pleasant ergonomic design and convenient functional design, especially the timer and power control. It is most used kitchen item in our family. But!

'Cool' Cooker is Hot! (Huh? Wha'd he say?)

Bob N., Amazon
15 September 2010
  • Summary: First off, I assume you're already informed about induction cooking--if not, try google or wikipedia. I'm just reviewing this particular unit: Attractive overall, it has a glass/ceramic top that seems durable, but I haven't pressed my luck.

Not what I expected

R. Osborn, Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: The induction hot plate works but it is not what I expected. Unit required new cookware which after completing purchases cost as much as the induction single burned cook top. It has been an interesting experiment that solved my curiosity but I would not recommend it.

worked great... once!

C. W. Cunningham, Amazon
31 May 2009
  • Summary: I just got this, and I absolutely loved it... for all of 5 minutes. I used it to fry some hot peppers in a cast iron skillet, which took about 5 minutes.

Poor quality control

Amazon user, Amazon
10 September 2008
  • Summary: The first unit lasted 3 days, then just plain quit. The replacement unit arrived a week after I reported the problem with the first one. When I plugged that one in, there was a bright flash, a loud pop, a puff of smoke, and the smell of electrical burn.
