Great extra burner though you need the right pots and pans

Pros: power, performance, price,

Cons: small burner area, requires magnetic pans

Max Burton 6000 Induction

Pros: Gets hot fast, very efficient, light weight/portable.

Cons: Fan Noise, no temp setting between 150 & 210, (not really appropriate but) LEDs hard to see outside.

Glad I purchased this.  It has been very useful for me so far but as with anything new it will be a while before I really comprehend how to fully use it.   The best thing I like about it was unintended.... wok cooking, instant heat, water boiling, cooking outside so all smoke and fumes recycle into atmosphere..., light weight/portable.   I am concerned about the lack of a temp setting between 150° and 210° for simmering and slow cooking.
