- Works well with a fry pan.
- Doesn't work at all on small/medium induction rated pots.
- With a fry pan: can boil 1 litre of water in 4min 30 seconds on 2000W setting.
- Would not recommend
Does not work on small/medium pots (the same induction pots work fine on my kitchen induction cooktop). Error comes up "E0" - pot too small. Only works on large fry pans. The induction noise and internal cooling fan are loud. I bought this to run off my cars lithium/inverter setup while camping and it works well (with a fry pan only). I do like t...he feature of controlling the unit via power (watts), as opposed to temperature. This makes it easy to calculate the demand on the battery system. But as it doesn't work on a small pots to boil water etc an old school electric fry pan would be more functional as its cooking surface is larger and it's only 1 item to carry as opposed to 2. The induction cooker and a fry pan.
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!
