There are three possible sources of noise associated with induction cooking. None of these noises indicate a defect in the product or a danger to you.
One is a fan: The Duxtop induction cooktop uses "active cooling", which means a small fan turns on when the unit is in use. This helps keep the airflow moving at a satisfactory rate. Fans will generate a soft but perceptible hiss when running. Few people find the sound to be noticeable enough to be bothersome.
A second source of noise is an occasional faint "tick" sound that can occur when the electronics powering an element cycle On or Off (to keep the energy flow constant).
The third noise source is not from the cooktop but from the cookware. The sound is usually described as a humming or buzzing. The degree to which this noise occurs varies with the particular item of cookware, the particular unit, and the power setting in use; the extent to which it seems annoying varies tremendously from person to person—some don't even notice it, while others find it highly irritating. There are three possible causes for such noises:
1) Encapsulated "slugs": most induction cookware makers encapsulate a ferromagnetic slug in the base of their cookware. If the slug is simply encapsulated—meaning not actually welded to the base—it can move microscopically within the encapsulation; thus, subjected to a high-frequency field, it can vibrate slightly and buzz or hum.
2) Loose-fitting handles on cookware can vibrate.
3) Pans with bottoms not completely flat can vibrate slightly on the cooktop surface.
Top Customer Reviews
I am a little disappointed about the diameter of the cooking hot spot as my cast iron pots are not really heating up on the edges so well (I use cast iron most of the time). It does heat, but it's more in the center of the pan with about a 3" diameter area (see attached photo). I"m not sure if this is normal or there is an issue with it. But with that said, I simply heat the pan slowly and it works well.
—efficiency is great. It heats quickly. After I'm done with it, the cooling fan runs for a minute or two longer, then I can immediately stow it away, because it's pretty cool to the touch. Amazingly, you can even put your hand on the burner right after turning it off!
—the all-glass top with sensor touch "buttons" makes for really easy cleaning.
—it's straight up pretty cool the way it works
—at lower power temps, it still boils vigorously, so you lose sensitivity at this level. I noticed it pulses on and off every few seconds at lower levels. I make oatmeal often, and I have to be vigilant to prevent boil over. Right before it boils over, I reduce power from 10 down to 2.5, and even then my oatmeal slowly starts boiling over, so I have to pull the pot off to cool and stir it down. After this I can then leave it to simmer at level 3.0 til it gets goopy.
—too many beeping button pushes. To turn it on and start boiling, there are TWELVE beeping button pushes: on, function, +, +, +, etc. (you have to hit "+" to bring up the power level going from 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, 7... up to 10). To turn my oatmeal down, I have to hit the "–" button ELEVEN times to get from 10 down to 2.5. Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, etc (you get the picture). At least to turn it off, you only have to hit "on/off" just once.
—not sure if all induction cooktops do this, but it has a cooling fan that runs while you cook, which is about as loud as a hair dryer set on "low", or maybe about half as loud as that. In a quiet room you can unmistakably hear it. On top of the fan noise but quieter than the fan noise is a mildly audible buzz from the induction heating. I can see how some people might obsess on this buzz, but I'm already getting used to it after using it only five times.
THE BOTTOM LINE
In spite of all the CONS I will keep this cooktop, since all induction cooktops are probably mostly the same, and I believe it will just take some getting used to. If I had a more reliable/powerful electrical system on my boat, I'd be more inclined to get a different more powerful 1800w unit since they are barely larger than this thin cooktop.
While my test may be a difficult one, I fail to see how this product is useful for anything beyond boiling water. The heat is so concentrated at the middle, anything placed in the pan will burn at the center and be uncooked at the outside edge. As I said, maybe this one is defective, but it appears others have similar complaints. Also, while I really enjoy the simplicity and durability of my basic cast-iron pans, maybe this would work acceptably with an aluminum clad pan that can spread the heat better.
I would love to find an induction unit that can produce low heat in a constant-on method, even if it is another Duxtop. I will need to know first before buying another.
