Could be good but isn't

We had an induction cooktop with temperature function many years ago and I was glad to have found one that had this again.
To my disappointment the temperature control doesn't work. I wanted to cook pasta so I boiled some water, then set it to keep at 100C but it cooled down and was not brought to the boil again. I had to set it at 140C to keep the water boiling but that was too much. Useless function. The rest works OK. Show details

Didn't last long

As the other reviewer stated, doesn't work on small/medium pots. After a few weeks, it tripped my circuit breaker and was dead after that. I wasn't even using it at the time. Only found out the next day it was dead and the reason why my circuit breaker tripped. Show details

Absolute heap of crap

I won one of these in a club promo it never worked from the first time I used it the cooktop kept displaying an EO error obviously a faulty unit I cant get it replaced as I do not have the receipt (who gets a receipt when it has been won) club doesn't have one either and cant tell me where they purchased it so in the bin it goes no more Westinghouse rubbish for me Show details

Very Happy

Purchased the cooktop for daily use in our caravan. Heats up quickly & with variable heat settings doesn't use much battery which is handy when camping off grid. Very happy with overall performance, easy to use & keep clean. Slimline design, easy to store. Would recommend to others.
Purchased from Appliances online quick & easy delivery. Show details

Great ‘Induction’ Portable Cooktop

I bought the twin cooktop about 18 months ago - works perfectly. Not noisy - every ‘Scanpan Induction Saucepan & Fry Pan’ works perfectly. I had a Ceramic Cooktop before - the Induction is incredible cooks so fast !! Show details

Burnt out after second use - Inadequate cooling fan

Initially has alot of cooking power but gets weaker after only 10 minutes of cooking. There is a fan inside the unit but the ventilation holes are nowhere near the fan so the circuit board cools poorly. Cooktop then complains that its become too hot and shuts down.

After the second use, the cooktop overheated, tripped my circuit breaker and was dead after that.

Took it back to Harvey Norrman and demanded a full refund. Don't waste your time on this model.

This one works properly!

As you would expect from Westinghouse a good quality product. that does the job.

Large top which is longer than most so heat from large pots doesn't affect the display panel.

Simple intuitive controls which let you set power ,temp and cooking time independently, and the temp control actually works reasonably accurately, unlike a most of the others.

FWIW cookware with a bare metal uncoated bottom seems to give the most accurate temperatures.

Works with one of my 200mm top/ 130mm bottom frying pans but not the other,,works perfectly with a 200mm pot -. instructions are silent on this!
