It didn't take long at all for the frozen ground beef to cook enough for me to break it up with my spatula. As I continued to cook it on the highest level and added water to the ground beef, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the Toastess was able to maintain it's cooking temperature.
Once the beef finished cooking and I added all of my ingredients, I changed the temperature setting from MAX to #2 (there are 6 settings 1 through 5 plus MAX) to let the beef simmer and the Toastess handled simmering very well too.
I can't rave enough about this product. The stainless steel finish looks great and it cooks as well as it looks. I wish I could give it a rating higher than 5 stars because it amazes me that a product this inexpensive performs so well.
Very happy with my purchase!
It doesn't have as much power as a real electric stove burner, but it's actually pretty close and cooks a whole box of dried pasta, no problem; meaning it brings that much water to a boil in a comparable enough amount of time that it doesn't seem like you're waiting around forever. The thing only weighs about two pounds but it's pretty serious.
Temperature wise the burner is either on or off: it comes on full power for a while then goes off for a while, regulated by either a temp. sensor or a timer. Halfway between "1" and "Off" is about right for simmering, though you can still burn something below "1" if you don't watch it; much higher than "2" and it's constant on up through "5" and "Max". When it does come on, you can hear it make a tick and the green light is lit, so you don't have to guess. The instructions say not to have it on without a pot on it, I would guess to avoid overheating/damaging the coil. The coil is about the size of a small range top burner, but with less surface area/coil loops, as the photo shows. A very large 12 quart pot or a big frying pan is stable sitting on it as well.
The photo looks like the top may be brushed stainless steel, which it does turn out to be. So you don't have to worry about melting the plastic top with a wide pan, as reviewers have said of other burners; also the bottom black part is metal. The enclosure can get fairly warm during use, but certainly not enough to burn yourself.Read more ›
With heavy use at about 3x a day for about 7 months, the thing finally started to die down a little. I could now use 1 at a low simmer and 6 at a boil. In the last month of its useful life, 1 through 6 was meager and barely producing heat. In my denial, I plugged it into different outlets to test the heat, but it was not the power outlet - it was the dying cooking range. It had a good run, and because it is still a great buy for the price, I got a 2nd one to replace it.
Why is it greater than a $100 induction stovetop? I use stainless steel, copper, clay pot, cast iron, and sometimes leave it completely bare to quickly toast a slice of bread in less than 1 minute. Try throwing bread onto an induction stovetop when you toasted dies on you. You can't.
+very high heat
+knobs and body of cooking range does not get hot, accidentally burning you. good design.
+red light to indicate if plugged in, green light to indicate if heat is on

It's a good option when renovating a kitchen. The main issue for me is that the temperature knob's numbers wore off in just a couple of weeks. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Tiabetsy
I bought this to make omelettes for clients, before coaching events. Some venues don't allow my gas version. This works beautifully, simply, and gets it done well.Published 5 months ago by Earl Gray
Absolutely worth the $20. Is it for delicate sauces or fine crepes? No. But to cook when I didn't have a stove, it worked like a charm.Published 6 months ago by Anner

The temperature rheostat didn't seem to do anything but turn the burner full hot or off!
Maybe good for boiling water?
