[Amazon.ca] Rosewill RHAI-15001 1800W Induction Cooktop w/pot - $49.99 (from $69.99) (Prime or on Newegg.ca)

Hey all,

This is a warm deal which could be used for hot pot season =) Although this isn't the hottest of deals, it is reasonably cheap if you take into consideration the pot as well as the fact that it's 1800W. It appears that Amazon's version is Prime only, but it (and other models) is also available with free shipping from Newegg.ca (see below)

Bought one last time this deal came around to do Korean and Chinese hot pot. Works great and induction heats up quickly.

You won’t regret it. Buy some hot pot base to have in the house at the ready and some vermicelli or noodle of choice. Then have hot pot with leftovers, fridge remnants or just buy a couple things on sale to round it out on a cold day. You’ll get mileage out of it.

bought it for the same price last month and it works fine (used only once). The pot is quite sizeable making this a pretty deal.

Mixed reviews on newegg but i hope that was the older models

What's the difference between the RHAI-15001 on Amazon/Newegg and RHAI-16002 that's on Newegg for the same price? Rosewill's website seem to indicate the exact same features unless I missed something.

From what I gather, it’s aesthetic? But I’m not certain either. Personally if you have Prime, I would go with Amazon for ththis return policy. If it’s any help, I have owned one for 4 years (Tatung, not Rosehill) and it’s going strong still. Realistically, I think most people buying this would use it just for hot pot or as an extra burner so I don’t see it breaking down quick.

Is induction best for hotpot?

Also, what soup bases does everyone use for hotpot?

Personal, I prefer gas because I feel having the power cord on table during hotpot is troublesome.
Plus, gas stove is a good backup for power outage. I always have at least 8 can of gas as emgermacy supply, just in case

Good Morning
I had an induction cooktop, which was fine until it stopped working and kept giving me error codes. It heated quickly but the exhaust fan is loud. I will look to replace it next winter, will probably get gas.

One of the reviewers stated it isn't as powerful as a regular stovetop burner - have any of you who have this experienced this? Thanks!

For $29.99, I bought this last week and used it last weekend for hotpot. It boils water so fast and it's quiet

Aside from the shape, I have no idea since I only have this one. Might be smaller. Check the reviews

1300W (cheaper) vs 1800W
May slightly notice a difference in boiling time, but I like that it looks like it would take up a little less table space. More room for foods!

Summary:
Pros for the OP: More Watts Less Time, Hot Pot
Pros for this cheaper one: Size Profile, frying pan, $10 cheaper after shipping

I think so if you don't mind the cord and safer.

I tried Chicken soup base. Still experimenting since I am noob to this.
