What prompted me to write this review was something I noticed yesterday. We were cooking chili and I decided to use this induction cooktop in combination with our dutch oven. It's a slow cooking meal, 8 hours, so a good test of the device I thought.
Half way through I was busily adjusting the temperature up and down to find the sweet spot for cooking the chili. That's when I noticed something. I set the cooktop to 210F, and came back in 30 minutes. The chili was lightly steaming, but not boiling. I then set it to 220F. 30 minutes later, I come back and see it's boiling.
What's weird about that? Well the boiling point of water is ~215F. So apparently this device is dead accurate! I was really shocked. That's not something you're going to easily do with a gas stove.
Super impressed with that. I read reviews of other induction cooktops, and a lot of them have trouble keeping accurate temperature. This one doesn't seem to have any problem, at least when used with a dutch oven.
It was also great for heating up the dutch oven initially. For the chili recipe we brown the beef in the pot over medium-high heat before adding the rest of the ingredients and turning the temperature down for the 8hr slow cook.
Well with our gas stove, we'd have to turn the flame up to medium-high and wait ... and wait ... and wait. Dutch ovens are heavy cast iron and sink a _lot_ of heat. You can get them up to temperature on a gas stove faster by turning the heat to high and then turning it back down again as soon as it reaches temperature, but obviously most of us aren't going to be able to control the gas heating that accurately. Doing that you'll usually just overshoot, and because cast iron holds heat forever, it'll be stuck too hot and just burn the meat. So us mere cooking mortals are stuck with setting the flame to medium high and just suffering the wait.
But this thing heated that dutch oven like a champ! Took only a minute or two for it to bring the whole pot up to temperature! Totally crazy. And of course it's temperature controlled, so once the pot was heated up, it just maintained the perfect temperature from then on.
Besides that, it isn't too noisy. Other induction cooktops I tried had a painfully loud high pitched squeal regardless of cookware. This one I don't even notice anything too high pitched. It does have a fan that runs to keep itself cool, and that's certainly "noisy", at least relative to the complete silence of gas, but it's not a big deal.
Just one negative thing. It came bundled with one of NuWave's frying pans. The frying pan is awful. Just recycle or donate that thing. I seriously don't know why they include it, because I can see a customer trying this cooktop out with the included pan, burning the s*** out of their food, and blaming the cooktop because of it.
The large fry pan that came with it fits well with the PIC gold
Pros: heats pan quickly, easy to clean, portable, boils small-to-medium water faster, didn't notice the noise others have complained about
Cons: learning curve, heats very unevenly
I primarily bought the NuWave hoping it would work better than my glass-top electric for my cast iron pans. Since purchasing, I have used many times with cast iron, stainless steel and the included pan. In all cases, the center of the pan would be very hot (and encouraged sticking, even on the nonstick) and the edges barely warm. The pans I'm using all fit within the circle.
Without exception, my cast iron performs better on my glass-top. In fact,I wasn't impressed with ANY skillet cooking. The heating is just so uneven it makes it impossible to evenly brown anything. Again, the center gets very hot, but it doesn't seem to "spread" to the edges like a regular stovetop (with my electric stovetop, I use low-and-slow, which allows the entire pan to heat prior to use). The induction seems to "induct" only where it directly contacts the coil, the rest of the pan doesn't do much.
If I'm boiling a saucepan worth of water, it's fairly fast. Large pots of water take FOREVER to boil. I suspect it's, again, due to the small center of actual induction that happens. A large (think stock pot) boils faster on my stovetop since more of it is heating at one time.
So did I like anything about it? Sort of. If I need to quickly cook just a couple of eggs and ONLY want to use the included pan, I can do it very quickly (albeit with sticking). A small amount of water boils quickly. I will take this camping since it's easier to use than the propane stove in our rv.
Otherwise, my stovetop is superior in every way (and it's a nothing-fancy, GE glass top).
