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.
The Countertop TI-2C | True Induction
The True Induction TI-2C Cooktop is portable and energy efficient. Unlike our Counter Inset cooktop that is meant to be inset into your countertop, this unit is portable and can be placed wherever you have an outlet. Since this cooktop is portable it is perfect for camping, barbecues, or needing extra burners for a special occasion.
Less Time Cooking
Induction technology is enabling us to be able to accomplish more with less time, so you can skip the drive through lane and enjoy a home cooked meal in less time.
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 to be used then stored when back on the road. The fact that induction doesn't give off any actual heat makes the unit very safe in mobile cooking situations.
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.
Power Sharing Technology
True Inductions power technology allows for more energy efficient cooking by allowing the burners to split wattage between the left and right side.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
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 don't understand how a non mechanical appliance can become faulty so quickly? When it worked it is an awesome way to cook, but now I am stuck with a unit with only one working burner, and I am pretty disgusted with Amazon's return policy on this, at least a year should be given to allow enough "use time" to evaluate a product. Less than a year is horrible and worst of all I can't get it fixed :(
