I didn't realise that induction cookers make a loud buzzing noise, particularly the small portable models, so it is a common problem and not just confined to this unit. Tried it with a variety of pots and they all worked and cooking was quick but cooker was noisy with all of them. Big surprise.
Great, gets hot fast without heating the kitchen
Heats fast and controls produce instant results. Heat remains steady as in simmer, or boil or fry. As there is no cooking manual/guidelines with this product trial and error is needed to learn. Having said that, induction cooking with the correct cookware is fast and efficient. This Kogan induction cooker is value for money..
None of my pans are recognised
None of my pots and pans are recognised by this. It's pretty useless at the moment until I buy new pots and pans. My pots and pans are pretty flat and is the recommended Size, unless I got a defective item I will have to buy Jew pots and pans. This is my first purchase from Logan and it is pretty disappointing.
centigrade not working
i have found that the c temperature doesn't work .it changes but doesn't reflect the the heat which stays alway on high
the p temperature works fine
this is not a criticism of kogans as I have bought a few things through them\\ and I find them
a great co to deal with.
I have contacted kogans and they said the would replace it,but i thought i would check here first to see if there was some thing I could do before sending it back
Introduction to Induction cooker
Simple to use, fast heating & maintains constant temperature. I use this instead of my gas Bbq wok cooker to fry chips & chicken outside. No mess. Just set the temperature power & it doesn't keep getting hotter to burn the oil black. My next home cooktop will be all induction cooker.
Inexpensive, but reliability could be an issue
We purchased 2 of these about 2 months ago. One stopped working within a week and was replaced by Kogan. Both still working and do the required job, but there are a couple of issues. The unit (or at least the fan?) appears to briefly turn off every time the power value is changed. This can't be a good 'feature'! Also, the 'beep' associated with each button press is overly loud and somewhat annoying. Overall reasonably happy, but we're yet to see if they last for a reasonable time.
Very Good; Inability to handle hot cookware a problem.
I bought two of these and continue to use them daily. The only significant issue is that the heat sensor is quick to go off when using cast iron cookware. The cast iron cookware gets and stays very hot and this induction cooker cannot handle the heat. I frequently have to turn it off and on again when the heat sensor cuts the power to protect the electrics etc...
For the price it is great. If it could handle hot cookware it would be 5+ stars.
A very useful induction cooker for the price
The induction cooker has been used daily now for six weeks. So far, so good. It performs as well as a more expensive brand I use. There are many uses for this item and it is easy to transport from one location to another. The low setting allows my pressure cooker to maintain pressure without having to constantly adjust the heat settings. For the price, it performs surprisingly well. The product arrived within 48hrs of ordering. Manuals are found on line, not supplied. I read the manual before buying and receiving the item which I found useful. I like the initiative of not sending a paper manual as it is a sustainable way of information storage. On the strength of performance of this cooker I have now purchased their sous vide machine. Stay tuned for that review.
A little disappointed
I love this product it's heats really quick , but disappointed with its ability in recognizing my pans. I have Avalon pans suitable for induction but it only recognizes the large frying pan, none of the smaller pans or my wok which is a same brand as this is the main pan I use, so will limit my use.
Only recognizes my large fry pan
