About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
This Nesco Portable Induction Cooktop is user-friendly and energy-efficient. Its smooth, ceramic-glass top wipes clean with ease. Features five different modes: melt/warm, simmer, boil, fry and sear. The instant temperature adjustments make cooking virtually fail-safe. Also, since the heat is generated in the pan, not the element, less energy is wasted than with gas or electric stoves.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I used the cooktop to reduce maple sap into maple syrup. Induction is perfect for this because the constant power requirements are very high, so high efficiency is a must. I placed a piece of parchment paper between the pot and the unit to prevent any spillage from landing on the face of the unit. The unit would operate for 1.5 hour or so, perfectly fine - but it would randomly shut off the induction portion with the fan running. It did this several times. I sent the unit back to NESCO for their engineering to determine the cause. They could not replicate; but it's no surprise because they didn't perform their testing using the same equipment or settings that I used. Anyways, they sent an RMA packing slip for me to send the unit back to them free of charge. Standard shipping was 1 day, since I lived so close to the manufacturer. They received my unit at 10:30am on a Thursday and didn't ship me a replacement until the following Monday. By that time, I had purchased a different induction cooktop (NuWave) and it works flawlessly for over 48 hours straight. I'm returning this product and will keep the NuWave.

I found the unit to be noisy. It only has 6 power settings and did not have a timer or temp readout. The unit works good and very good buy for the price.

Purchased to use while I am waiting to replace my broken 6 year old expensive Kenmore Elite induction cook top. I am familiar with cooking with induction. The fan is a little noisier than I expected and the cycling on and off to maintain the temperature is annoying. In general though it is a good value and certainly better than my broken Kenmore.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I wanted to try induction cooking and this seemed the best, and most cost effective way. This product has delivered what it said it would. I am very pleased with it. It comes with a magnet, so you can determine what cookware you already own, is compatible to use. Turns out we had a lot. My first test was boiling water. It passed. So fast. I was surprised at how large the cooking surface is. It was hard to tell from the pix on line just how big the cooking surface is. One thing that I especially like, is the portability of the unit. My regular cook stove is on the opposite side of my kitchen from my sink. It is hard for me to lug a full pan of water from sink to stove. This unit allows me to have it on the counter, by my sink and not have to lug heavy pans/pots of water across the kitchen.

I love it. I don't have to worry about the water overflowing into the coils on the stove. I don't have to worry about food falling into the stove coils. Heats up fast too. I wanted the NuWave PIC, but this is just as good.

A tip if you're considering buying this product & wondering whether your pans or skillets will work with it, if a magnet sticks it will.

With the right cookware, this is a fast and efficient way to cook. It is not good for slow-cooking. Walmart carries GraniteWare which works really well with induction cooking.

I purchased this induction cooktop for use in our RV. It is large enough to handle any size pot or pan. I actually thought is would be smaller but was pleasantly surprised. It is very fast so I use it more than the propane gas stove.

  • A. Cookware needs to be made of, or contain, ferrous metal. It comes with a magnet for testing. If the magnet sticks, the cookware will work. I've found GraniteWare, sold at Walmart, works very well. Any kind of cast iron, including that which is coated with porcelain or ceramic, will work. Aluminum, copper or glass will not work. Neither will stainless steel unless it's magnetic. If you place a piece of incompatible cookware on it and turn it on, it will show an "E1" error message on the display.

  • A. yes, the pots/pans must be ferrous (you can test this by placing a magnet on the bottom...if it sticks it works). Aluminum/glass/copper will not work. Most stainless will work. Cast iron will work.

  • A. Yes. The pans must have "ferrous" content. A copper bottomed stainless steel does not work. Most stainless steel pots and pans are not magnetic, so they don't work either. Cast iron frying pans are working like a charm. Check your cooking pots/pans with a magnet - if it sticks, the pans will work.

  • A. Cook wear needs to be made of cast iron or stainless steel that a magnet will stick to, There is an adapter that I have seen in the past that allows regular cookware to be used with it but I haven't found it since purchasing the induction cook top, I wish Walmart carried it.
