Take advantage of the fastest, safest way to cook with the Aroma Gourmet Series Digital Induction Cooktop. Induction cooks without flames - heating quicker and operating up to 70% more efficiently than traditional gas or electric stovetops. It's the perfect addition to any kitchen, RV, dorm room and so much more! The Aroma Induction Cooktop will only operate when induction-safe cookware is in place and shuts off automatically once cookware is removed. With a Warm setting and 6 easy-to-use digital temperature controls, this cooktop is ideal for all of your cooking and serving needs. It's perfect for daily dishes and easy entertaining! The programmable timer sets up to 180 minutes, leaving you free to work about the kitchen instead of constantly monitoring your cooking. And since the cooktop itself does not heat, spills easily wipe away from the ceramic cooktop surface for easy cleanup.

I don't know why there are so many lower ratings on this cooktop. I really love it. I've been cooking off a hotplate for a year, heard about these and finally bought this one. It boils water super fast, and the lower settings also work well. I'm getting used to the settings - it is easy to overboil a pot because this heats up so much more quickly than an old hotplate. I also bought the adapter plate for non induction cookware, but don't really use it because most of my cookware is stainless and is compatible with the cooktop. I have noticed the cooktop works harder (pulls more electricity) when using the adapter plate. After you use the burner and turn it off, the fan keeps running. If you turn it off again it will shut off automatically after the cooldown cycle. I think it must be important to let it do this, so don't just unplug it after you use it.
Aside from the quick heat control, the induction stove has a place in many homes and offices as it does not have a heating element which is also a source for fire. The stove remained relatively cool except for the heat absorbed by the cookware. It is a good idea to remove the heated pot from the stove to reduce heat transfered to the stove.
The stove's footprint is large enough for large pots yet does not take a lot of counter space. The controls are relatively simple to use for short order cooking. I am glad we bought it as it also reduces the amount of heat generated as compared to other stoves.
-It takes 8-10 minutes for water to boil in a medium-size pot
-It has six settings, I never used the highest one because I can cook almost everything at level 2 and 3!
-It has a timer, and it is easy to clean
-After you finish cooking, you press the turn-ff button, but it won't turn off until the stovetop has cooled down
-It is affordable. Many induction stoves are well over $100, so I got a good deal with this
-It beeps when your food is burning
-sometimes it beeps when my food is NOT burning
-occassionally the cook button is slow to respond
- you MUST buy induction pots! If you see any reviews that say their pots don't work with this stove, huge change they bought the wrong pots!
I wouuld rate it 4.5 stars to be honest. It isn't perfect, but I would buy another one!
I cooked steak in my cast iron skilled the other day, and it heated much more evenly than a gas range. A note on cast iron: because it conducts heat much better, the booklet says to start your cast iron cookware on 1 and bring it up to 3, which is the highest you'll probably need to go. I found this out after overheating the unit, and I looked it up after the fact. Happily, the unit also shuts itself off with an error message before it overheats to protect the cooktop.
