The saga began when I realized I hated the electric range in my apartment. I cook almost every day, and almost every day it saps my spirit. I considered paying the landlord to put in a gas or induction appliance, but that would have cost more than a thousand dollars, and my miserly heart wouldn't allow it. So I started looking into portable induction options.
I'd used an old Max Burton 6100 a few years ago until it melted a hole in itself, and I had more recently tried out the Nuwave 30602 double, which is about as good at holding a temperature as I am at holding a tune. I figured I'd buy the most expensive induction cooktop I could find, and if that wouldn't work, then nothing would. That would be the TI-2C.
I can tell you this: it is materially better than the Nuwave. If my only two options in the world were these two cooktops, I would pony up the extra $150 for the better temperature control, direct power control (you can set the energy level instead of the target temp), a simpler control panel, and single-piece ceramic surface. But this device has one big drawback that turns out to be fatal for my use-case: the size of the heating element.
Expensive induction cooktops have multi-element coils that will heat your whole pan, even if it's large. Less expensive permanent cooktops will have coils of different sizes -- a large one for your skillet, and a couple of smaller ones for sauce pans or boiling water. This unit has only small coils. It heats an area of your pan about five inches wide. If the middle's at 400F, the outside edge of the pan might only be at 200-300F, but it's a lot cooler than the center. This is fine if you have a five inch wide pan, or if whatever you're cooking is five inches wide, or if you're willing to constantly reposition the pan. If none of these are you, you might end up having some difficulties with this cooktop.
This problem is exacerbated when you're using a type of metal that doesn't transmit heat well. My All-Clad tri-ply pans do fairly well with this cooktop (although by no means perfect), but cast iron is a huge problem. It has very high heat *capacity*, but limited ability to conduct heat within itself. What that means is: if you turn this thing on high to sear a steak, you will sear approximately five and a half inches of that steak. As you get further from the center of the pan, you're going to get less and less crust.
I'd say the final straw was this morning when I was making two pancakes side-by-side in my skillet. When I flipped them, the part toward the center was getting on toward that dark brown that you don't want in a pancake. The outside was barely cooked. I cooked the rest of the batch centered on the hot-spot, but that was when I decided to return this thing.
This pan is great if you're cooking for one, have perfectly conductive pans (copper core maybe?), or only ever need your stove for quickly boiling water. For the rest of you, I recommend a pass.
Induction cooktop makers: I'm willing to pay almost arbitrary amounts of money (by that I mean: 50% of the cost of an induction appliance, installed; $700 or so) for a portable cooktop with multiple coil sizes, with at least one large enough to evenly heat a twelve inch skillet. Get in touch if you have one of those.
In the end, I recommend buying something low tech, cheaper, and more reliable that you will end up needing to buy in a year anyway, rather than losing over $300 and lots of your precious time on a useless item marketed as "energy efficient."
This one was looking fine and worked fine at the beginning, even though the digital buttons could be improved and, especially, a general ON/OFF switch is indispensable IMO, as a safety and in order to clean the surface without triggering the appliance to start inappropriately.
Now, after only 8 months, it stopped working and acts funny. Probably a faulty electronic component as it goes on and off like a blinking signal. Totally unacceptable !!!
After about 14 months we discovered a crack in the glass. Unsafe to use, needed to have glass replaced. My experience with customer service was 0 stars. Very hard to get feedback. After a call and several emails I got an RMA and was told they would repair it for $149. After packing it and taking it to USPS, I had a quote for over $70 for shipping from CA to FL. So, in total, the cost to repair would be almost the cost of a new unit. I tried several times - 2 calls and 4 emails, all with no response, to ask if they could work with me on shipping. Finally I gave up and took it to an e-waste recycler.
All in all - bear in mind that this is a glass cooktop. Glass can break, so not the most durable product, and if it is you might as well buy a new one, because customer service is a joke, and repair expensive.. I like that it is efficient and it is a quality portable unit as far as functionality. For my particular use a regular plug in electric burner is going to be a better choice.
