High, Higher, and BLAST FURNACE.
on January 10, 2012
The good news is this thing puts out a lot of heat. It will boil water faster for coffee than my power burner on my kitchen stove. It's heavy, tough, nicely chromed and finished and seems like a good value for the money.
So why the three stars? Well, it's the heat. You can't turn it down. The lowest setting is blasting enough to burn any kind of food you might be trying to cook, and the burner simply goes out below that. If you're just making coffee, this is like a jet engine. If you really need to cook something, it has some problems.
