Summary: Bought our house equipped with electric stove. While we appreciate the cleaner indoor air of using an electric over, we miss the quick temperature adjustment a gas stove affords for more demanding cooking.
Decent - temp control doesn't seem to be accurate though

Summary: I bought this item because the manual indicated it could be set to a certain temperature. This product had the lowest possible temp setting of the induction units I had seen. I was hoping to be able to use the 110F setting, but from my testing it over shoots by a pretty large amount.
Summary: I bought this unit and immediately went out to get a copper core all-clad dutch oven to use with it. The very first thing I tried to make (braise) burned at 160* setting and nearly ruined my pan.
Summary: I have just ordered the Sunpentown SR-951T which will be my third unit from them. I've had the other 2 for over 2 years, and with constant use at my B&B have had NO problem with them. I also have a $1400 Guggenau built in induction cooktop, but still prefer the Sunpentown units.
Summary: This cooktop is very well built. The smooth glass and chrome construction is easy to keep clean. It's very quiet in operation. It heats pans more quickly than gas, it does not heat up the kitchen, the cooktop stays cool to the touch and heat on/off is almost instant.
Summary: I bought this product so I could move all my cooking outside to my porch. I live in central Texas, and it's been really hot this year. I already have a countertop convection oven, an electric frypan, a rice cooker and deep fryer, so this is the last piece I need.
Summary: I purchased this for camping. If I wanted an 110v electric cooktop that was easy to keep clean and can get hot enough to boil water or sear meat without tripping an unknown circuit breaker somewhere or overheating the extension cord, then efficiency and therefore induction seemed the best (if not...
Summary: This induction cook top is better than gas. For actual control of the cooking process, electric does not even come close to either because there is such a lag time when you decrease the temperature. Induction cooking heats instantly and then only the utensil, not the kitchen.

Summary: This is the worst piece of equipment I have ever used. I own a restaurant and they did not last a month and it is not a real busy restaurant I have 5 of these and they are horrible. Good Luck if you buy them.
