    It Does Boil!

    I have gas ran throughout my house and have decided to go electric but cant afford a stove. When I seen this I read the reviews saying it didn't even boil water. So I went ahead and bought it to test and decided to test it before I threw the box away. I put a medium saucepan on the largest burner and guess what! It took just 10 minutes for the water to come to a ROLLING BOIL. I'm keeping the burner now that I know it does boil. Make sure you put a lid on the pot it helps the boiling process. I have to walk 300 yards to my mothers house to use her stove. Very difficult when you have three kids in tow and have to take every ingredient and utensil needed! This burner has saved me so much trouble

    The GE Dual Burner Hot Plate is handsome, ruggedly built, and much easier to clean than other hot plates I've used. My only quibble is that the burners take longer to reach maximum heat than those on the old clunker I was using before. It's well worth the price, and seems certain to last for years.

    I read all the reviews on this hot plate and was a little concerned. I decided to get one and if it didn't work, return it. The first day I needed to saute a bunch of vegetables and used a 12 inch frying pan on the large burner. I turned it to high and let the pan warm up first. It did an excellent job. Then I wanted to do a water boil test, as some reviews said it wouldn't boil water. I put a 4 quart pot on the large burner set to high with 5 cups of tap water. I put a lid on, as I would on my regular stove, and set the timer. In 9 minutes I had bubbles on the top and at 14 minutes I had a rolling boil. I then put a 1.5 quart pot on the small burner with 3 cups of tap water. I put a lid and set the timer. In 11 minutes I had bubbles on the top and at 14 minutes I had a rolling boil. This more than meets my expectations. I only have one negative comment and that is the entire unit gets quite hot and I need to move it with oven mitts right after use. I still give it 5 stars because this is a nit for me.

    I am a retired single guy who lives in an RV at an RV resort in Florida. My RV operates on both propane and electric. Last Spring I ran out of propane. Being retired and lazy I did not want to go through the hassle of pulling out the propane tanks and getting them refilled so I went to Walmart and got the double burner. I am an avid cook and have done everything with the burner as I have always done on my regular stove. I have made everything from spaghetti sauce in a staneless steel pot to pot roast on a cast iron dutch oven. Boiling water? Yes, you can on both burners. All you need is a pot with a lid and it boils fast. Trust me. We have pot lucks dinners here at the resort once a month and I have cooked for 30 people with no problem. Last month I made a large pot of cachun gumbo. I will eventually refuel on propane for the RV heater, but I will continue to use the double burner to limit the propane use.

    4.0 stars 9/22/2010 by chowderheadeluxe
    by chowderheadeluxe

    These burners DO boil water, and actually can fry meats, contrary to what others have posted. Overall, the product works very well, but it does take a few minutes longer to boil larger (3-4 quart) kettles of water, than a burner on an actual full-sized stove. Common sense dictates that since the burners are 900w (larger burner) and 600w (smaller burner), the extra heating time is to be expected since real stove burners run 1250w on up to 2500w. The unit has to be below 1500w total current draw, in order to operate on any household electrical outlet without causing problems, (just like any other consumer electronic.) The unit is easy to clean, easy to use, seems durable enough, looks okay, and does the job well enough. I was surprised that it doesn't heat the surface it operates on much, so that is a big plus in my opinion. Of course, there's always room for improvement so only 4 stars overall.

    I live in an area that can get power outages during storms. Since my kitchen stove is electric, I needed a way to cook dinner, when power is out. I have a small generator that can provide enough electricity to power things like this hot plate. So, I bought it, hoping I could cook with it. The owner's manual says its "not for braising, frying, etc", and suggested it was only intended to "boil water". So, I was concerned that this hot plate wouldn't get hot enough to cook. As a test, we turned it on, and was able to cook bacon and fried eggs with no problem (using the larger burner). There is no doubt that this hot plate can cook hamburgers, steak, or whatever you may need to cook. So yes, it works fine! It is a little slow to get hot at first, but that's to be expected with a 1000W 120V burner. The body appears to be made out of metal, and the entire unit seems sturdy. As others have said, the cast iron hot plates do seem solid, and retain heat quite well. No, the surface won't get "red hot" like your kitchen stove, but it is hot enough for small cooking jobs. There are indicator lights on the front, to let you know that a burner is turned on. There are no detents in the control knobs, so it could be easy to turn a burner on, by accidentally touching (moving) the control knob. Overall, very pleased.

    The dual cookers are nice, but water boils only on the larger one. Can be taken on road trips and the dual burners helps me to do more than make just one-pot wonders. The price is pretty good, the additional burner's only $10 more than the single ones (and they're smaller anyways). It's fairly portable, pretty lightweight, and gets the job done. I've used it for about a half a year and haven't had any problems to date.

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

    i also have the cheaper two burner hotplate with the open elements,and it doesn't even compare to this one for only about another 10$ ,it's even coat over elements makes it safer from fire and spreads the heat very even,so well that at 900 watt on main eye it does better than the open eye type at 1000 watts,, heating same amount of water on both eye types this hotplate heated the water 3 times faster,and at 100 watts less ,,that is a considerable savings on electricity,,it will pay back the extra 10$ in no time at that rate,,and i did do this test accuratly measured water and timed,,also used same pot from cold ,,this is a very good buy ,also another good feature is that this plate is grounded unlike cheaper ones that are not grounded,,for an extra 10$ it adds much safety with the covered even spread heat cover,and the added security of being grounded!!! big pluses especially since the electri savings will pay for itself in just a few uses!!!

    I had been looking for a hot plate burner for about 2 monthes and came across this one online at Walmart. I read and reread the reviews and I was sold. I got it about 2 wks ago and have used it everyday since. I love it, it does a awesome job of cooking and heating up food and it is very attractive looking. It came when they said it would Iwas so excited when I came home and it was there I cooked on it that night. Tks Walmart, I am a customer for life.

    • A. Yes, both burners will boil water. One reviewer suggested starting with hottest tap water - Great Idea! Interestingly, 3-cups room temp. water in COVERED glass tea kettle reached rapid boil in 14 mins 15 secs on both the larger 900w burner & the smaller 600w burner at highest temp. setting.

    • A. It absolutely does! The key is you need to put lids on them. Without the lids, it will take a long time. It is not like your typical gas burner you have on the stove but it is a great product to boil with as long as you keep lids on your pots and pans.
