post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My wife and I would like to find an induction cooktop.  We found a Magic Chef 8670PB glass, Ceran, 30" cooktop, however, there are no manuals available.  does anyone know if this is induction? Happy Holidays. Thanks Curt.

No experience with the brand, but good luck.

hi, I dont know if that is an induction hob but if you are looking for one I would recommend one. they are pretty quick at heating up and boiling water should take about a minute, just gotter check if your pans work on them because some dont.

If it doesnt get hot without a pan on it, its probably an induction burner.
unless'n shesa broke.

I don't think the  8670PB is an induction cooktop. Just a glass top electric stove. Which  I never much cared for,

because they take a while to heat, you cant tell they're still hot. Unlike induction, which isn't hot unless it's

cooking, even then only as hot as the pot upon it gets. Far safer. 

For standard electric stoves I prefer individual burners--either "plate-type" or coil type. 

Induction tops are nice, albeit not so cheap, but once you get past the ferrous-pot limitation

the preciseness in temp control is tough to beat.

Any recommendations on a 120v single burner induction unit? I need something that is portable and quick to heat up and won't break the bank. Has to be 120v.

Max Burton has the better reviews. I have the NSF rated Max Burton. It doesn't perform any better than their home models but is beefier construction.

Probably the same guts, but this is mine.
