Product Description

Take advantage of the fastest, safest way to cook with the Aroma Gourmet Induction Cooktop. Induction heats quicker than traditional gas or electric stovetops- and operates up to 70-percent more efficiently. The Aroma Induction Cooktop will only operate when induction-safe cookware is in place; it shuts off automatically once cookware is removed. The easy-to-use digital controls set to 6 temperature levels and the programmable timer sets up to 180 minutes. There is no open flame produced by induction, the cookware itself becomes the heating element for quick and even heat distribution. And since the cooktop itself does not heat, burnt on spills are a thing of the past. Spills easily wipe away from the ceramic cooktop surface. The induction cooktop is also great for serving on its low temperature setting.

I just picked this up last night from a very popular membership warehouse for <50 bucks. As soon as I got it home, I unpacked it and plugged it in. I filled my graduated stainless Pyrex pot up to the 2 qt line with cold tap water. I covered the pot with its glass lid and turned the hot plate on. I set it to the max setting of six and checked the time, 9:15. Through the glass lid, I could see bubbles forming within the first minute. By most peoples' definition of boiling, it was boiling within 8 minutes. I then pulled the lid and continued to observe. By 9:25, it was a full-on rolling boil - the kind that spits water everywhere if left uncovered.

The second picture that Amazon shows with the boiling pot surrounded by ice cubes was totally my experience. As the water was furiously boiling away, the surrounding glass felt cool to my touch.

I also tested the lower temp settings. When choosing settings 1-5, the device simply cycles the heat on and off. The output does not appear to be variable - only the amount of delay between heat cycles varies. The delay between heat cycles is longer at the lower settings. At level 6, it appears to be "on" all of the time (no cycling).

The hot plate has a cooling fan to keep its electronics cool. It is a fairly loud fan, so I'm guessing it has pretty good velocity and volume.

The timer is simple to operate and shuts off the hot plate at the time of your choosing.

This cooktop is great!
- Cooks well with all the pans in the inexpensive try-ply stainless steel cookware set I picked up at W. Mart.
- Heats the pans quickly and so far has done just as well as the stove for cooking eggs, grilled sandwiches, rice and veggies. Boils water for tea/coffee as fast as my electric kettle.
- The controls are dead-simple, the built in timer is useful, and it's easy to clean.
- The pan-detect and auto-shutoff are good safety features - reduces energy waste and now I don't have to worry about accidentally burning down the house.
- The fan does make a bit of noise [like any fan does] but it isn't noticeable over the stereo or t.v. There is also an electric "buzz" when the pan is being heated, but again, it's not distracting.
- Would be a great choice for those in dorms or studio apartments, or for single-folk and couples.

Most of the negative reviews I've read for these machines have been from people who seem to not have done their research before buying.
- A magnet *must* be able to stick to the bottom of your pan and the bottom of the pan must be generally smooth [mine have a small circular indention in the middle for the brand name but still work well]. You can also find an "interface disk" here on amazon to use with your non-magnetic [aluminum] pans.
- To keep foods from sticking let the pan and the induction cooker "warm up" on a lower setting and use a bit of oil/butter - canola spray is a good choice - and then move up to the higher settings as needed. This will also keep your pans from warping and the electronics in your cooktop from dying earlier.
- YouTube has some videos if you want to see these machines in action!

I bought the Aroma Induction Cooktop at Costco for $49.99. Up close it looks stylish and feels well built (I don't trust photos). I have a natural gas R366 Wolf at home and this amazing little cooktop will get a pot of water boiling faster.

And I was impressed even more with the ease of clean up. Since the glass doesn't get scorching hot like conventional radiant heat cooktops spilled food will wipe off easily. A big plus.

Another interesting feature...when you turn off the power the cooking stops immediately just like gas.

I'm sold, my next full sized cooktop will be induction.

Picked this up at COSTCO for $40-something. I find this Aroma works better than the expensive Fagor (?) that I used at a friends. Much easier to use. As in, not always trying to find the "sweet spot" to get the burner to come on. (I had the same problem w/ a Frigidaire that I ended up returning). Stays cool around the burner and not hot right after use. Cleans up nicely. I liked it enough that I purchased another for my dad. The only potential drawback, is that the low settings, 1-2, might get a bit hotter than expected. I highly recommend.

I love my Aroma induction hot plate. I am a full time RVer and hate the gas stove in my motorhome!
The Aroma Induction Hot Plate is the perfect solution! It fits nicely on my stove top cover and cooks everything to perfection! I had to get new pots and pans but these are easy to find at any good kitchen store! I do recommend carrying a small magnet with you when you shop for pans! My old pots were stainless steel but they had a multi core bottom so would not work on induction!

There is plastic surface strip on top side and then plastic surrounding controls on front part and when your pot is larger than the glass surface of the induction plate that hangs over on to these areas the hot pot transfers heat to these areas melting these areas in the months since I have had this unit.

I would suggest if you intend to use it, as it is a very nice unit...that you use pots that are no larger than the glass surface OR buy a different unit that has glass only on upper top side so pan can hang over & not melt control area.

I like the unit for cooking. When you stop cooking by pressing power button the fan runs a 15 seconds or so the continue cooling magnets/unit & then it shuts down. I prefer NOT to leave plugged in as not necessary to always have at the ready.

I will probably look for a unit that can accommodate my larger 12" heavy encapsulated bottom stainless steel pans maybe one with an angled down front control panel.
