GIVENEU Portable Ceramic Infrared Cooktop, Double Infrared Burner for Cooking, 1800W Electric Ceramic Hot Plate, Portable Electric Stove for Small Home, Dorm and Camping

GIVENEU Portable Infrared Ceramic Cooktop

[Durable and Easy to Clean] This electric hot plate is made of high hardness crystallite glass plate and stainless steel body, which is durable and easy to clean. The burner will automatically shut off when it reaches a high temperature to prevent from overheating. Safe for cooking.

The GIVENEU Electric Ceramic Cooktop lives up to its promises. The unit is compact, and it's designed to mount to your kitchen countertop or to a wall. The electric cooktop heats quickly, and it's extremely easy to use: just adjust the heat setting and choose a temperature, and you're done. The cooktop works well for preparing small meals, like oatmeal or scrambled eggs, or for reheating leftovers. The cooktop is also a reasonably good cook-stove for bigger jobs, like boiling a large pot of water or cooking spaghetti. The cooktop only comes with one burner, so it's limited to two pots at a time. However, this cooktop is considerably more powerful than most single burners, and it's much better than some double burners. If you're cooking something large or you want to boil water, this cooktop is a reasonably good choice. However, this cooktop lacks a temperature gauge, and it's harder to control the temperature of the cooktop than it is on other electric cooktops.

The unit's size makes it compact enough to place on the countertop, and the design makes it easy to lift up the cooktop to empty the drip pan. The only negative is that the included clamp is not very strong, so you have to be careful not to damage the surface it's attached to.

VIVOHOME 1800W Countertop Double Burner Electric Hot Plate, Durable Cast Iron Cooktop with Mitten for Indoor Outdoor, Adjustable Temperature Control from 200℉ to 720℉

VIVOHOME 1800W Countertop Double Electric Burner Hot Plate

by VIVOHOME

COMPACT & PORTABLE - Sleek and modern, the countertop stove will nicely fit your kitchen without taking up too much space; Compact design performs well in any occasion; Lightweight to lift and easily transportable for camping; Perfect for indoor and outdoor use, like kitchen, office, camping, student dorm, RVs, etc.

The VIVOHOME 1800W Countertop Double Burner Electric Hot Plate is a sturdy, well-made electric hot plate with a versatile design and temperature controls that fit a wide range of cooking needs. It has two 900W+900W burners, so it's powerful enough to fry and boil foods, but it won't heat up your kitchen as quickly or as hot as larger hot plates. Our only complaint was that its temperature controls were a little inconsistent: The knobs were easy to press in, but they still seemed to move a little and it was hard to make precise adjustments. However, its large 7.1-inch-diameter cooking surface means it can accommodate big pots and skillets easily, and its two 1800W burners provide enough heat to cook large meals all at once, and its large 6-inch cooking surface means it can accommodate smaller pans as well. The VIVOHOME 1800W Countertop Double Burner Electric Hot Plate is sturdy and well-made, and it's relatively affordable, too.

The GAU-80305 is an affordable, sturdy, and versatile electric burner that can be used to cook indoors or outdoors. Its temperature range covers a wide range, from 140 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and it's easy to use. It has a power indicator light, a temperature regulating knob with heat distribution coils, and a nonslip rubber base. It produces decent heat, but it's slightly lacking in power, and it only reaches up to 450 degrees. Also, it's a little noisy, and it's tall, so it's a bit difficult to use on small countertops. Overall, though, the GAU-80305 is a great choice for anyone looking for an electric burner that's simple to use and works well for a variety of tasks.

NuWave PIC Gold Portable, Energy Efficient Induction Cooktop with 8” Heating Coil, Ceramic Glass Top, 52 Temperature Settings Between 100°F and 575°F, Advanced Stage Cooking Functions & Auto Shutoff

NuWave PIC Gold Portable

by NUWAVE, LLC

PORTABLE COOKING CAPABILITIES With a lightweight, compact design and adjustable wattage control, the PIC Gold lets you cook virtually anywhere without sacrificing any of its precise temperature control.

The NuWave PIC Gold is an attractive, easy-to-clean cooktop, and its cooking performance rivals or exceeds that of our previous top pick, the NuWave PIC. It is smaller than our previous pick, but it feels more substantial in the hand and is easier to grip. The PIC Gold is quieter than the PIC, though it's still audible, and the settings are more convenient, with 52 settings between 100°F and 575°F. The PIC Gold also has faster, more precise cooking, thanks in part to induction technology, which heats your cookware directly instead of requiring a hot surface. The PIC Gold's biggest drawback is its energy efficiency. It's less efficient than our other top pick, the PIC, and doesn't produce as much power as a conventional electric cooktop, so it's best suited for smaller cookware that doesn't require high heat. If you're mainly cooking smaller batches of food, and it's safe to do so, the NuWave PIC Gold is an excellent induction cooktop.
