The difference in power is noticeable, this version was unable to bring a traditional hotpot pot to a constant boil (the pots with the 2 split from T&T/BestCo). And due to this fact, I had to return this. For smaller pots perhaps it is feasible.
Just to confirm, your hot pot is very magnetic, right?

LOL yes, absolutely, I did the magnet check on all my pots (i have an induction stovetop). I even returned one, got another one from Costco and experienced the same problem hoping it was a defect. Now I've returned both Costco units and purchased the Ikea and the hot pot is BOILING hot.

Got to agree with zackcheng. I had the same issue with hot pot (T&T as well). It is magnetic, so i am not sure what is the issue. It will bring it to a boil, but takes a while to cook meat compare to portable gas.

Does the 1800W work well with the pots 2 split from T&T?

Yup, the 1800 W works exactly like a butane gas stove. Since the Costco one was too weak, I switched to the butane stove.

Now the Ikea stovetop is just as strong as the butane one.

I just tried this with the Pot King pot from T&T this weekend for hot pot. I can confirm it was basically not able to sustain a boil. Picked up the Ikea one today and it’s way better.

I also can confirm I tried this one from Costco for hot pot and it is way too underpowered. I also picked up the Ikea one where they force you to pay $5 for the pick-up option... and it works very well for Hot Pot.

I have found the Salton products to be terrible quality control after they became a Walmart/Canadian Tire, etc. cheapie. They used to have a very good rating on their products but decided to go for quantity over quality. Their induction cook tops are fair at best. I bought a Kuraidori from Home Hardware a couple years back and swear by it. I have not used my old stove cooking elements since and now will probably just do away with the stove since getting an air fryer...

I'm going to have to get the one from Ikea. I've had no luck with the Salton and would love something other than an open flame in my dining room for hotpot.

Latest price: $29.97 in store as reported in infernogn Costco East thread -- hence, it may not be a nation-wide clearance but store specific. YMMV.

Probably too late for a price adjustment, but if anyone is considering getting an extra unit, this might be the time.
