The “670041920 Ucook” model by Fagor is a perfect unit for small spaces with product dimensions of  9.8 x 13 x 2.4 inches. The induction stove has a total product weight of 4.4 pounds and a shipping weight of 7.2 pounds. The small size and compact design makes this device the best option for outdoor cooking, dorm use, studio apartment use, and recreational vehicle use.

The whole unit is flat shaped and is given a black color. The cooktop surface has two white colored circles that represent the position where the cooking pan is to be kept. The maximum diameter of the cookware base should not be more than 9.5”.

Like all other induction cooktops, this unit will also heat up all utensils with their bases made up of magnetic materials. All cookwares with a ferrous base can be used to cook on this unit. Some utensils will be made of pure iron base. But some will be made of a thin layer of ferrous metal in the base. This base layer will be affected by the magnetic field produced by the induction cooktop and thus distribute the heat on to the cookware.

The surface of the cooktop is made of glass ceramic material which makes the surface non-porous. There will not be any scratches on the surface and it is very easy to clean the surface and can be made shining like a newly bought unit.

The touch buttons are presented on the front of the unit so that it is easy for the user to access them. The controls include the timer button, child lock button, plus/minus buttons, on/off button, and the temperature/power level button.

The timer button will help you to program your desired cooking time, after which the unit will automatically shut down. After pressing the timer button, its values can be changed using the plus/minus buttons. The timer levels vary from a minimum of 1 minute to a maximum of 180 minutes. There is an operating time limit for each type of food that you want to cook. Thus, you can get your dish properly cooked, and that too at the right temperature. 

The child lock facility is provided for this product to prevent children from accidentally changing the settings that you have provided for cooking. The same feature can be provided to prevent them from turning ON the cooktop as well. Just a press on the button will activate it and another deep press will turn it off. This safety button can be pressed either when the cooktop is operating, or when it is turned off.

The  plus and minus buttons are placed  with the temperature/power level button in between. This button can be togged between the temperature setting and the power setting. Accordingly, the small red light flashes between ‘F’ and ‘L’.  After selecting a articular setting, increase or decrease their values using the plus/minus buttons. The temperature levels can be changed from a minimum temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit to 465 degrees Fahrenheit. The device is also equipped with 8 different power levels.
