Interesting. I have never seen the option for a Gasoline fuel cooktop ever before. I wonder if they recommend against E85.

I had a backpacking stove that ran on unleaded gas - it didn't burn quite as clean as white gas, but it was close and the convenience was worth it.

I use one on the porch in summer, but I find that boiling water with an induction is painfully slow (like 40m), so I use the propane grill (with burner). The 120v is just not enough to generate real cooking power, but it's fine for making eggs, pancakes, sautéing, etc. That helps when it's too hot to turn on the kitchen stovetop.

I was thinking about getting one for that reason. I assumed it would boil water and cook soup faster than a smooth top electric stove.

I find that my induction burner boils water waster than anything else.

do you cook pasta in it, for example, or make soups? I find that it can't do anything over a small amount of liquid in a reasonable amount of time.

240v induction, however, is crazy fast at boiling water. When recipes say to start boiling a pot of water, we have to wait a beat and finish some more steps before we turn on the cooktop, otherwise, it’ll be boiling way before we’re ready.

Also, different types of pots/pans can have different magnetism, which could affect heating time.

Max power for an induction cooking device designed for use on a 15A circuit is 1800 W (15A x 120W).



It is what it is.

imho, you have either a defective cooktop or most likely as Gareth noted,
a pot that's not optimized for induction use.

Induction certified pot below. Notice the 'disc' on the bottom, that's a flat-polished
aluminum clad, carbon steel bottom fused to the stainless pot body.



3qt. is about $18 w/ lid [www.therestaurantstore.com]
