Does not work

Pros: looks good
Cons: does not work
"We really wanted this to work. Returned one and got another, it did not work either. Called Casa Essentials twice for help and only option was to leave phone number and wait for call back. They do not return phone calls and product does not work. Buyer beware."

Mixed review

Pros: works great heats up fast
Cons: loud fan
"Great price for a portable induction counter top "cooktop". I have an electric glass top range at a condo, but I'm used to cooking with gas, so I purchased this to take to the condo...since I don't care for electric cooking. The unit heats up very fast and worked fantastic, but now I realize what the first person to rate this unit meant when they said it was loud. While cooking, I was surprised to discover an internal fan comes on, and stays on the entire time the unit is cooking. I find the fan to be OBNOXIOUSLY LOUD. I don't know whey they couldn't have used a higher quality fan, but then the unit wouldn't be so reasonably priced. If not for the fan, it would give it five stars."

It's good only if your pots work!

"I don't own this but I've known others who have. What I've learned from them is that it's great if you have the compatible pots. If they are not made for induction cooktops then it won't work."

Great item

Pros: fast heat, energy efficient, great color
Cons: the fan is a little noisy at first
"We purchased this induction burner as an approach to see if we would like induction. WOW. We love it. We are using this single burner more often than our glass top stove. We loved having an extra burner for Thanksgiving.
After trying out this product, we will be upgrading our stove to induction.
