Induction hot plate

I just picked up one these for $39. It's an 1800 watt model, the highest wattage model you can get for a 15 amp circuit. You can get commercial models with a higher wattage rating that require a 20 amp circuit, they don't cost anywhere near $39.

OMG but does it get things hot in a hurry, it's truly insane. It's also controllable unlike a coil electric range. In fact, it almost behaves like a gas stove. Turn the power level down, and the heat instantly goes down.

Just try one...

Just make sure you have induction compatible pans.

You see these on cooking shows where they have to use impromptu cooking stations. Like Cutthroat Kitchen.

Pretty slick.

just gave one to my daughter who sold their home and are living in their motorhome as nomads. Sure does cut down on the heat used to cook things. Also, it automatically cuts itself off if you are trying to use the wrong cookware.

I like the NuWave Pro. It lets you control the temperature in 5 degree increments. That makes it almost compatible with my gas stove.

Read something online about a guy who remodeled the kitchen, leaving out the range or stove. "I never need 4 burners at once ..." was the thinking, so why waste the space? He has 3 of these and only brings out what he needs.

"Hobs," they're called. Why?

He had an IKEA model not sold in the U.S.

Not sold in U.S. because EU mostly uses 230 V.

Reminds me of the time when I "overclocked" my electric burner that just didn't get hot enough. BAD idea...

I found them to heat water faster than a microwave and since I started using them my gas bill has come down. I don't spend a lot of time waiting for food to heat up which uses less power and being able to set it to turn off automatically after it is done is a plus.

IKEA sells other appliances here ... but they are more of a "Kenmore," not a manufacturer per se. My guess is that they don't see the U.S. market as being large enough to warrant a 110v version be spec'd for them. That, and there might not be any U.S. made induction hobs. I think the IKEA stuff sold here is made by Whirlpool for them; certainly not the case for whatever they sell in Europe. Thanks for making me think about this some more.

I wanted to get a gas stove, but I would have had to have a plumber run the propane line to the kitchen. I needed a new stove so I got an induction model.

Now I do not want a gas stove. The induction is great. It has a "turbo" setting that boils water fast. Temperature control is precise and change is instant.

I like to cook sous-vide occasionally, but I like my meat a bit rarer than the rest of the family. With the induction set at minimum, it maintains a water bath at 128 degrees, which is just right for my steak. The rest of the steaks get 135 or so with the Anova circulator.

The only negative was that my All-Clad LTD collection that I had accumulated over the past 25-30 years was not compatible.

An 1800 watt standalone coil should be faster than a 1000watt stove top coil or a 1000 watt microwave.
Almost twice as fast.

A microwave usually loses in a contest with a electric coil with good coil to pan contact because of the conversion loss to microwaves despite 100% of the microwaves being used to heat the water.

You'll sue the least energy with the tabletop coil if there is very little air in the top of your kettle and you are heating no reserve of extra water.

The 'egg is frequently pushing their semi-house brand (Rosewill). I think it's been close to $40, currently $55. [www.newegg.com] Most recently $45 according to Camel - [camelcamelcamel.com]

Gourmia from Amazon, but I don't really think it matters. I'd bet that the guts for all of these things come from the same factory, and the manufacturers simply slap their different names on the product.

or spend $20 on an induction diffuser. Just sits between your all-clad and the cooktop - it gets hot and heats up your cookware. Not perfect, but good for the cookware that isn't used regularly.
