For anyone who has owned this Salton and the IKEA unit, how does the fan noise compare? The IKEA unit is powerful, but the fan also pretty loud.

I've used at least 2 Salton ones (personal and a friend) and both of them are finicky as hell and not good products.

I ended up returning mine.

I've busted out the IKEA one maybe 4-5 times since I bought it last year when they discounted the price? Still going strong and a total workhorse. No more problems with power cutting out or whatever during hot pot.

You get with you pay for with Salton.

After trying, Salton 1500w didn't work for hotpot so avoid it even at clearance price.

I will verify that this works for hotpot. It just isnt a fun experience waiting for things to boil slowly, but if you are okay with it or using it for other purposes, then great deal

Yes It works with hotpot. The pot has to be a metal surface due to the fact that this is an induction cooktop. I find that my pot has to be touching the cooktop fully. If the pot's bottom won't touch the cooktop closely it won't heat up that well.

I forgot I had one of these!

I would use it whenever I wanted to fry up something stinky (e.g fish) and I would just do it outside or in the garage with this unit.

Never used the Ikea one but the fan on this is fairly loud. Otherwise do find that this one worked well. For our use it did heat things quickly with the right pots.
Now to see if we can get a price adjustment through Costco!

Got the IKEA unit. 1800w is nice. Tested thw Salton one. I like the F and C dual operation. Timer function is also more just friendly than IKEA. Too bad 1500w max power. I'd still probably go with Salton for price & Costco return policy

Loveeeeeeeee induction, especially for cast iron. 60 second scrambled egg <3.
Strangely though, I've found they suck at boiling larger amounts of water, say for a family serving of spaghetti noodles.

This thing sucks for hot pot. We have both the IKEA one and the Salton and the Salton was not usable.

15amp is 1800W. 20A circuits are not common but i have been using my Ikea 1800W unit on 15A for a couple years now to excellent results.

On the ikea model you can choose temperature or wattage. I prefer wattage.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the Salton. IKEA has a two year warranty on their unit, but not sure about ease of claims. They're also saying "Last chance to buy" for some reason.
