But there is one other thing that seems to have become a big favorite – and that is a portable induction cooktop. These are small induction cooktops that are very light and easy to use. You need only plug them in wherever you want and you are good to cook!
And today we have brought you two such cooktops to choose from – take a good look at each before you pick one:
First up we have the…
Rated very highly on Amazon, this induction cooktop is quite a good appliance to have in your home. Not only is it the ultimate in portable cooking, it also comes with a number of top-class attributes. See for yourself:
- 10 power levels (500 to 1800 watts) available, making it a versatile cooktop.
- It also integrates an overheat sensor which stops your food from burning or the appliance from overheating.
- Also comes with a timer that can be programmed to stay on for 180 minutes. Once the timer runs out, it shuts off automatically.
- It also detects automatically if you place non-induction cookware on it – therefore you have no risk of putting on the wrong cookware.
“First thing I did was boiling water. I set the heat to 5, water was boiling before even I realized. It used to take minutes in my ceramic smoothtop. This morning I boiled a cup of milk in my SS pan at setting 4. It only took 2 mins and 44 seconds for the milk to froth up, that’s less than 1/2 the time what my electric smoothtop takes for the same quantity. I cooked our lunch in this single burner. It almost took the same time as I use all the burners of my electric stove, which means a lot of energy conservation. Note my electric smoothtop is pretty new and it’s much more radiant than a regular coil stove. I’m already in love with this tiny thing…”
And there are many other reviewers who give you a lot more detail on this cooktop – do check out their reviews. And once you have made up your mind; all that is left is to buy this cooktop from Amazon and save on the price!
But we did promise you another option and as promised – here is the…
This next cooktop is from the House of Nesco, and is quite a bestseller on Amazon. It also costs somewhat less than the first product – but then it isn’t the exact same thing. Let’s see how it is different:
- This comes with 5 power settings – up to 1500 watts.
- While it does not have an auto sensor for incorrect cookware, it does come with a magnet that you can use to test the cookware before using them.
- It can also detect if there is any cookware sitting on it or not – and can automatically shut off if there isn’t.
- And now for the basic features of the cooktop that make it a great buy nevertheless:
- Heats up your cookware pretty fast but remains cool in itself – so safe to have around children.
- This is said to be 84% energy efficient – imagine your savings!
- Easy to clean glass cooktop that looks great and stays that way!
Works very well
“I love the Nesco induction cooktop! It’s compact and lightweight, so it is easy to store when not in use. When it is in use, it’s a dream! It heats quickly, much quicker than I expected. A small fan runs while it’s on, and it barely makes any noise. The five settings are easy to select, allowing heat variations from simmer to sear. The buttons are easy to push, but are not touch sensitive. This is important since you wouldn’t want to accidentally change the settings. The appearance is sleek, and it’s easy to clean…
It also uses much less energy than a regular stove, so it’s cheaper to use in the long run. It won’t replace my regular stovetop, but I do plan to use this regularly.”
Vine Customer Review
In fact, if quite a few of the customers were to be believed, this one is actually better than the Max Burton in everything, except for the auto-shut-off with timer feature which is absent here. But if you will not be needing that one – then this one is a good enough buy – and it costs somewhat less too.
Here too – you actually get to save some when you buy from Amazon – so you may want to check out their deals and shipping details!
An induction cooktop that is portable solves much of your storage problems – and even when the kitchen is crowded, you can just take your cooktop and shift outside! And these are very easy to use and do not come very expensive. And our recommendation is that you add one of these to your kitchen today! So have you chosen yet?
