I got water to boil, but it took ages.
Jack Paine
It's the little over that will get you, as it goes empty when you are cooking; Duh!
R. W. Milyard
I want another one exactly like this one when this one dies.

I know this burner is inexpensive, but it is still junk. I bought two of these burners. Yes, they look pretty, but that's where the good ends. One of the burner's grates is uneven, causing the pot or pan to wobble. When it wobbles, the pan or pot does not make full contact with the burner's heating grate. The other burner's heating grate is more even, but it does not get red hot like the other burner. Too many inconsistencies. To sum up, you never know what you are going to get with these; an uneven grate, or an underpowered unit. I got water to boil, but it took ages. I will not buy these again.

I am using this to melt oils for soap making. I have also used it to keep something on a simmer during a BBQ.

What I like about it:
- very light weight and low profile making it easy to store
- Power switch and temp controls seperate so easy to make sure if it is on or off
- does well at maintaining lowwer temps. (I have not tried to actually cook on high heats I wanted something that could maintain low heat and this does that quiet well)

What I don't like
- burner does not rest flat. This makes pots woble and can lead to uneaven heat

Although did not purchase this item through Amazon (local discount store) still have usage issues. After placing a 6" diameter pot of cold water on coil; fixing an immersion thermometer in water positioned 1/4" above bottom of pan (not to touch metal) and then switching unit on and turning temperature knob incrementally; allowing unit's sensor to keep up with heat demand; the maximum heat temperature reached was between 210°F and 211°F. It doesn't reach 212°F (boiling point). The mystery of why pasta doesn't cook fully is now uncovered with this unit. It is at best a 'buffet warmer' not as stated on box 'burner.' And yes, have same issues with pans wobbling on uneven coil. At $19.00, was cheap enough to try it out and it tested not a boiling unit. Pros: good for keeping cooked foods warm; melting butter and chocolate for recipes. Cons (particular to this unit): does not achieve a rolling boil of water for cooking foods; and pans wobble creating uneven heating of pans. Needed a unit for cooking and this one was a disappointment of my needs.

The only drawback is that the coil isn't as leveled throughout as it could be, and so balancing things can be especially hard at first before you level the surface on which the burner rests.

Very cheap. Good metal exterior for how cheap it is. Turns on and gets hot.

I got this because it seemed to be a good value from the reviews and the pictures. Took a chance and was satisfied for a while. I run a food business on the weekends and use it every week to keep the water of a steam table warm. The thing was never used to boil or do any high temp. cooking. Started using it back in December 2012. It died a week ago.

With consistent use expect about 8 months of life out of this hot plate. For the light duty I use it for, and for how cheap it is, I will be buying another. Its a good, cheapo hot plate.

If you want to do any kind of good cooking with a hot plate, get a more expensive one.

This is a fine water-warming hot-plate. I wouldn't use it for anything other than this.

I use this burner with a thick-bottomed stainless 1-quart saucepan to cook/melt Soft Plastics to make baits. In My Opinion, this method is FAR superior to a microwave. I gave only 4-stars because this is a lower-end unit...yet I gave that high of a rating because it has a fine adjustment, not the high-medium-low of some units, AND it has held up thru a lot of use and is still working fine, probably 2 years since I bought it. Not bad at all.
