Have you got a on demand hot water heater? We dry camp some and the induction cooktop would not work for us

Well I use my copper chef at home and absolutely Love love love it! Here's hoping it will eventually make it into the camper. FYI, I made the reverse grilled cheese and it worked, no sticking in the pan.

Love our Induction Cooktop! We have a single element that we use when we cook outside. Best thing since sliced bread!

Just be aware that induction cook tops may be a problem for anyone with a Implantable Cardiac Device (ICD). If you, or anyone using the unit, has a pace maker or defibrillator I suggest you check with with your Cardiologist before using one. See Here for the NIH Report.

Daughter gave me the nuWave personal induction cooktop a couple of years ago...consequently the stovetop in our 5er has been used less than 10 times and we use a convection oven rather than standing on our head to light the oven.

heating tools

Standard load includes an induction eye, faberware elect grill w/rotis, a porclien elect skillet, and a crock pot. We also take a gas grill but it only gets used on long stays, too much clean up. Honestly the lodge flat round cast iron griddle fits nicely on the induction eye and makes the best steaks and burgers for two. The faberware grill is great for a pork or rump roast on the spit, but ours is 20+ years and I only see them at ebay now..

Now I am hungry again..

As I understand any ferrous (magnetic) metal will work. Glass and aluminum cookware doesn't.

I think these are a great idea but I already have twice as many ways to cook in my TT than I need. Whet I need is someone to cook FOR. Otherwise the microwave seems to get most of the work. Have the full outside kitchen that has yet to even have a burner lit.

We have one in our camper and one at home. It is, by far, the most used appliance. Love it. When we first got it, it did sit for a while but once my wife used it, it quickly became number one.

Yes,,,
The book says as long as a magnet will stick to the bottom of the pan,,, you are go to go !!!

Sorry to hear Mike that you need someone to cook for,,, this little Cook Top would be Great for One !!! Very easy to clean !!!
I would like to try the Round Cast Iron pan idea !!!
