This cook top is reasonably priced and has very nice digital controls and is easy to use; however, there are some things one should know before buying this or any other induction cooking device:
1. This device requires a 15 amp circuit, which is not uncommon in properly wired homes, however, if anything else is running on same circuit, know that you may trip a breaker. It is like trying to operate a microwave oven on same circuit as your fridge (when both are on, the breaker will likely trip).
2. Know that your expensive or cheap stainless steel pots and pans will not likely work with this cook top since they are not attracted to a magnet. Test your cookware FIRST with magnet, and if it will not stick, the cookware will not work.
Being the simpleton I am, I bought this product without doing proper diligence, and will now have to buy new cookware to make this work.
Again, I believe this is a good product, so can only blame my lazy self for not doing better research upfront.
Rated 1 out of 5 by WalmartShopperLady facts missing in writeup
This cooktop looks great, however, I took it back immediately after reading the instructions. It seems you cannot operate it around things like a wristwatch or radio and a few other electronic things, so I wondered what would happen when we located it near the microwave. This should have been explained in the product info writeup. If it had I would never have ordered it. Shame as it seemed like the perfect solution for this family. Thanks for trying WalMart, but the writeup needs an update methinks.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bayliboo Every time I use my kitchen range, it takes 220 volts of electricity. This takes 110. It is portable, safe, attractive. If something spills, it does not burn as on the range because the unit does NOT get hot, only the pan. Simple to wipe up. With the correct pans, it can steam, grill, boil. Together with my wall oven, I have not used my kitchen range since I purchased this item.
