Top of the Line Tech
The DUXTOP 1800-Watt Portable Sensor Touch Induction Cooktop Countertop Burner 8300ST is really to top of the line when it comes to technology and features. It has a touch control digital panel, a timer that counts down from as much as 170 minutes, a 60 second auto shut off control and a child safety feature that really sets it apart from other models in this price range.
User Friendly Features
There are several reasons this cooktop is a great fit for your kitchen. The six foot extension cord means you will have no trouble finding a spot for it. The unit is designed to fit easily on the counter or in storage when not in use. It’s very lightweight and the design is simple and not difficult to figure out how to use.
The six foot extension cord isn’t a standard feature in induction cooktops, and it’s a really nice addition on this one. Especially if you plan on using this outside at some point, you’ll really be glad to have that extra-long cord.
Unbeatable Safety Features
If you have kids in the house, you’ll really be glad with this product. It has the standard shut off that detects if there’s no pan on the unit and shuts it down if there isn’t one. But there’s also the addition of a child safety sensor that shuts off the digital touch display so that kids can’t accidentally turn it on.
No Residual Heat
This DUXTOP induction cooktop is a great option in the summer because it doesn’t cause large amounts of excess heat to enter the room. This also helps if you are cooking in an RV or a small space without efficient cooling.
Compared to other models in the price range and of similar size, the DUXTOP can be a bit loud. This means if you’re looking for a cooktop for your dorm, this one may not be the best option.
High Minimum Heat
You may be able to find a comparable model that has a minimum heat of 100 degrees, which actually opens a lot more options for cooking purposes. This one only goes down as low as 140 degrees, meaning you may have trouble even keeping things to a low simmer. This is an unfortunate flaw in an otherwise really great unit.
Although the high minimum cooking temperature is an unfortunate flaw, this is a really good cooktop. It won’t work if you have a dorm and your roommate wants to sleep while you cook breakfast, because it’s one of the loudest models on the market. However, for traveling, the extra-long power cord makes this possibly the best cooktop on the market. If you plan to do any cooking outdoors on your induction cooker, this one will not let you down. The easy to use touch display is a plus and if you have kids helping in the kitchen, you’ll be really happy with the extra safety features that come on this model.
