About True Induction
True Induction is a specialty brand of kitchen appliances featuring induction technology. By focusing exclusively on induction we are able to stay ahead of the technological curve that is the growing induction industry. The True Induction name also signifies quality assurance. We've tested our units in real life situations to make sure that the product’s specifications are in fact applicable to the modern day household.
The Countertop TI-2C by True Induction
The True Induction TI-2C Cooktop is one of the best cooktops on the market that is portable and energy efficient. Unlike our Counter Inset cooktop that is meant to be inset into your countertop, this unit is 100% portable and can be placed wherever you have an outlet. Since this cooktop is portable it is perfect for camping, barbeques, or needing extra burners for a special occasion.
The unit has a ceramic glass surface which is made for easy cleaning. All that is needed is a damp cloth to wipe down the top surface then it can be easily stored in a cabinet or a closet where it is out of the way. One feature that distinguishes True Induction from other induction cooktops is the ability to power share between the two burners. When only one burner is in use it uses 100% of the watts, when both burners are in use the watts are split between the two of them.
The TI-2C is extremely energy efficient that allows food to cook faster, saving time, energy, and most importantly money. It runs off of a standard 110V outlet using 1800 watts. The unit uses a magnetic-based technology that generates heat using a magnetic circuit when a ferrous metal (steel/cast iron) cookware is placed on the cooktop. When purchasing optimal induction cookware the bottom should be flat with a diameter of 4.5 inches to 10 inches. To test if your cookware induction ready simply stick a magnet to the bottom. If it sticks well then your cookware is induction ready.
There are multiple safety features within the unit that can be favorable for those with busy lifestyles. For a safe cooking experience, it has a built-in safety turn-off feature that registers when the cookware is removed from the burner and placed back on. Another great safety feature this cooktop has is that once the cooktop reaches its maximum temperature of 450 degrees, it will stay at that temperature and will not exceed it. This allows the cooktop not to overheat creating a safe cooking experience for everyone.
Less cooking time, More family time
In today’s fast pace world, finding the time to cook dinner gets put on the back burner. Families rely on fast food or frozen meals more than ever before. Now is the time to make the change to induction cooking with True Induction. The magnetic-based technology is enabling the home cook to craft delicious homemade meals in a fraction of the time it takes traditional stove-tops. This revolution in home cooking allows more efficient cooking, healthier meals, and more time spent with those who matter most.
Small Space, Big Innovations
Cooking in a small space can be a big challenge, but with True Induction’s Cooktops it doesn’t have to be. With space in an RV or tiny home being so hard to come by the small footprint of the Counter Inset Model is the perfect solution. The unit is small enough for you to use then store when your back on the go. The fact that induction doesn't give off any actual heat makes the unit very safe in mobile cooking situations.
Peace of mind through inherent safety
The ease of use and safety features included in the True Induction line of cooktops makes them perfect for hotels and assisted living facilities. The nature of induction means the unit consumes far less electricity than traditional stoves. The reduction in both operating costs and injury risk makes True Induction a money saving investment.
Patented Power Sharing Technology
True Inductions patented power technology allows for more energy efficient cooking by allowing the burners to split wattage between them. This means the unit will run at 100 one side and zero on the other, 50/50, 70/30, 60/40 etc. It also allows the unit to run more effectively on the standard 110v outlet already in your kitchen.
The True Induction TI-2C Double Burner Portable Induction Cooktop is specifically designed with ease of use in mind. It’s rubber feet allow it to be placed on just about any flat surface to be used. The TI-2C features patented power sharing technology that enables to the cooktop to not only be energy efficient but the convenience off running off of a standard wall outlet. Power sharing works by dividing the power between the two burners at 100/0, 50/50, 80/20, 70/30, etc. This allows the unit to have 1800 watts available to the burners. The TI-2C requires induction compatible cookware to operate. Cookware that has a flat bottom, is between 4 and 10 inches in diameter, and is magnetic. It cannot be used with regular pots and pans. It comes with a limited 2 year warranty and support at email@example.com.

She loved it from the get go. Very little adjustment really since she had been cooking on an electric range for years.
But be aware, since this is 110 volt unit, it doesn't have near the power of a full 220 volt range. It splits 100% of its power between the two burners. You can run one burner at 100% and the other at zero.. ...both burners at 50%....or one at 70% and the other at 30%. You get the point. And...you really need 100% to sear or fry, so its mostly a one burner unit.
Still... We love it and when we get our new induction range, I'll move this portable unit to my RV.
I have never needed to go beyond a 5 when cooking, so the fact that it shares the 10 power levels between the two induction eyes has not been a problem. It is wonderful to set the temperature and have it be so steady.
I haven't needed it, but you only have 10 days to mail in the manufacturer's warranty, so get it out of the box and set-up promptly.
From the photo you can see that I removed the grates from the gas burners and had a custom galvanized cover made for my stove and this sits on it nicely...although it's a good thing I am tall as it is a bit high.
I can easily get to large pots on it, so plenty of room. Very nice addition to my kitchen. I will only have induction cook surfaces in the future. It is great.
The reason why I purchased this in the first place was I was too cheap to add a 220VAC line when we were remodeling the kitchen. This 110VAC solution seemed like a better and adequate solution at the time. Well, I definitely regret that decision. As other users have already mentioned, the 2 burners split the total 1800 Watts. I do a lot of stir fry and boiling stuff. And it's just about impossible for me to use both burners at the same time. I mean why even bother, I need one of the burner on the highest setting. I also purchased this with the intention of using it for hot pot. Again, having 2 burners is pretty much useless because you can only use 1 burner at full power. We ended up buying another portable butane burner, But now the induction top is taking up more space then needed.
Here's what I should've done.
Add the darn 220 VAC line and get a 220 induction cook top.
Buy 2x single induction cook top. I do have 2 separate lines of outlets going to 2 different breakers, having 2 cooktops would allow me to use both at full power at the same time. Same goes for hot pot nights.
I use my cast iron and cast enamel Le Creuset cookware and everything works beautifully. When you plug item in, it beeps but does not come on until you hit a button on whichever side you are using. Be aware that level 10 is the top level, but I have never had to go above 5 for a quick boil. Also, level 10 is the max for the entire cooktop: if one burner is on level 6, the max you can use on the other burner is 4. I start a burner on 5 and then adjust down after the pan is fully heated. I usually cook most items at 2 or 3 (except true frying). I just love this cooktop and now know that, even when my new range is installed, I will make room for this wonderful cooktop often.
You can use this anywhere you have power, and it can be set to the exact temperature required in your recipe, i.e. 325; and, you have a timer up to 150 minutes so that you do not have to monitor cooking as often. Any pot which will hold a magnet will work with this cooktop - I happen to have inherited some wonderful cast iron cookware that is over 60 years old - every time I use them, I think lovingly of my grandmother. I cannot answer question about cast iron with ridges, but I am sure the company could address that. I have used a large griddle across both burners with success and ease. When you remove your pan, the unit automatically shuts off - lots of safety features.
It is easy to clean, a dream to use, keeps my kitchen cool, and would be a wonderful addition for anyone who does entertaining and wants extra serving/warming/cooking options. And, this baby will be wonderful for the holidays, giving you so many extra options when you really need them. As you can tell, I LOVE this double cooktop, and NO, I do not work for the company (glad amazon confirms regular customers who have actually purchased a reviewed item). Hope this helps other people thinking of induction.
The burners together can't exceed 10 but I found that a burner at 5 is pleanty. The benefit is that it is 120 VAC unit. But this also limits it's power. Not a problem for me, I wanted the convenience of 120 (also 110) VAC unit.
A few annoying items. I hate beeping. If you pull the pan off to say flip food chef style, it starts beeping. Why? I may take it apart and remove it's ability to beep. The coils are a bit noisy. This is normal though and I think they all do it. The LEDs for the power button are always on as long as it's plugged in. Not that it's wastes any power, but my wife keeps thinking it's turned on. I unplug the unit to clean it. Wiping the surface will turn on the unit and beep like crazy while selecting every setting combination in the process. I may add an inline power switch to the cable.
Aside from those annoyances, I like the unit. It's low profile and sits nicely and not too high on the counter. Comfortable height to cook on.
It's ultimately going to end up on my sailboat when I get done with replacing my primary stove in my house
I bought this to give me time to while I do that.
