Takes a little longer to reach optimum temperature compared to my Black & Decker coiled burner, however, when it reaches optimum heat, it maintains it better than the coiled units. This may be due to the cast iron flat top which also allows the cooking vessels to sit without wobbling. It maintains a rolling boil on a 5 quart pot very well, better than the coiled type. When it cycles on and off, as all electric burners do, it maintains it heat very well. I could not rate its durability only having it for over a week, but if it holds up as expected, I will give it a five star rating.
One word of advice. If you're cooking something that needs the heat completely off, such as espresso, remove the vessel from the burner, since the tops stays hot longer than the coiled units.
