True Induction S2F3 Counter Inset Double Burner Induction Cooktop, 120V, Black

A Very Cool Induction Burner That Works Excellent!

Induction cooktops are getting more and more popular each day. They are more convenient and energy efficient than conventional cooking units. They use ‘electromagnetic induction’ based technology to produce heat. In the case of an average stove top, the burner generate heat in all directions thereby wasting some of the heat energy. On the other hand induction cookers produce a magnetic circuit with ferromagnetic cookware causing the cookware to produce heat inside of it. It keeps all the heat concentration in the utensil rather than the air around it. This concentration of heat allow to cook the food very fast while consuming less energy. It saves your time as well as money.

Since electromagnetic induction priciple is used, not all cookwares are compatible with induction cooktops. All cookwares whose base is made of ferrous materials can be considered induction compatible.

‘True Induction’ is a popular brand in the United Stated and they manufacture top quality induction cooktops.

This cooktop is sleek and portable giving it a nice look and feel. The dimensions of the product are 13.5 x 12.5 x 2.6 inches. It weighs 7.8 pounds. It is pretty light compared to most other cooktops. It is black in color with stainless steel border which gives it a premium look and feel.

It has two circular patterns on top to place the cookware correctly. It can accommodate cookware ranging from 4.5″ to 10 inches in diameter. The cookware must be made of induction compatible materials. That is, the base of the cookware that comes in contact with the cooktop must be made of ferrous materials, so that the device will function properly.

There are 10 heat mode settings and 15 temperature mode settings. Additional boil and simmer buttons are available for specific purposes.
