Rated 1 out of 5 by larry432 Didn't work for me!
I purchased this because it said that it would work with stainless steel and as that's pretty much all I have I thought great. Well it does not work with my stainless, so I sent it back. Now I have to waste all that shipping cost because the information on line was wrong.

I wish my whole stove was induction. It's so efficient and cleanup is a breeze!

When I originally received this product I almost sent it back as I had no idea that my cookware wouldn't work on it. After researching, I found that my stainless steel tea kettle and one large, older steel pot that I had would work with it. I have been so delighted with it that I've since ordered, on two seperate occassions, two different induction pans - both Swiss Diamond, which do not rattle on the "burner." I've used it daily since I received the pans and I'm delighted with it! It heats quickly and is very easy to control. I'm so glad I didn't return it ... that I took time to research the unit itself and the appropriate cookware. Would highly recommend it to those who want to begin using induction. So nice, in the summer heat, to have something that doesn't warm the entire house! Also, easy to clean!
Rated 5 out of 5 by August This product is wonderful
I live in an assisted living facility. I still wanted to be able to cook more in my apartment than just In the microwave. Now I cook chicken and dumplings, pot roast, plus many other things. My only regret is having given away all of my pots and pans before moving in. I had to re buy another set of stainless steel Cooks Essentials. No regrets LOVE this product.

My father used to irritate me with that comment but all these years later of course I realize he was absolutely right. Read the instructions for this unit and you'll have no problem with it. It's pretty simple and easy to use and a great asset when you need an extra burner or maybe you just need one for a cabin with electricity or a room or whatever. Make sure you have a magnetic pot or pan and you are good to go. The unit itself does not get hot other than the minor residual heat that comes from the pans after using it and it cools quickly with it's own internal fan. Make sure it is balanced wherever you place it, I had a slight slant where I first used it and some water boiled out and spilled onto the unit between the pan and the unit, and once the hard boiled eggs got jumping around in the pan the vibration of the pan and the wetness made it slide a little bit. Keep excess water etc. off the unit and keep it balanced where you place it and you should have no problem. This "induction" unit is far superior to the old blazing red hot burners of the old days. I like this unit very much.

This product was broken out of the box and would not turn on properly. So sad I was not able to utilize over the holidays. Going back.

Never knew these existed until I saw the infomercial for a more expensive model.
Gave it as a gift to someone who loves to cook but has pretty much everything he needs. He didn't realize how useful it would be until he started using it. Looks good too.

I have a very expensive glass top stove, but it has only ONE burner that I can control. I have burned food because I could not get the burner to cook on simmer---everything was high heat--no matter the setting, except for the lone burner. So far, I like the new induction cooktop. I have had it about a week or two and have enjoyed using it. Nothing has burned!!!!! And I like that there is no surface heating up. I'm glad I ordered it.
