Big Burner is crazy hot, little burner is just silly.
March 30, 2015
I have this for my kitchenette downstairs. I cooked on it for a week before I brought it downstairs so I could write instructions. What I found when cooking was that water boils at 2.5 and you can fry really well at 3. I'm not sure what level 5 is for. My guess is to smelt iron ore into metal. I was worried about my pan size because the burners are 7 and 6.5 inches. I used an 8 inch on the big burner and had no problem.
The little burner is just silly. I tried to fry mushrooms in a small pan on 5, and it didn't do anything. I tried to keep boiling water boiling on 5 and it stopped boiling. Maybe if you need to keep eggs in an incubator to hatch you could use the little burner, but it doesn't seem to have a place for cooking.
Heats up fast! Stays hot for a good 2-3 minutes. I am totally impressed by how it looks and the size. This being my first and only burner, I have nothing to compare it to other than my full size stove (which is electric).
Still working like a champ! I airbnb and countless guests have cooked entire meals on this thing. I even had a family stay over for Thanksgiving and made an entire Thanksgiving meal for 3 on it. It cleans up nicely with some elbow grease, and keeps on cooking!
Still working as a champ. Its getting more difficult to clean, but the burners haven't lessened in their power. This hasn't been used every single day since 2015, but I would say 15-20 times a month. When it is used its used the guests entire stay (so if they stay for 7 days they use it all 7 days). I've brought it upstairs twice since owning it to really deep clean the part the burner is not, and it cleans up fine. I'm going to keep using this until I can't.
