It says 300 to 1500 W but I left my cellphone on it for an hour and it barely charged at all.

I might have to reread the instructions.

But seriously, $30 is a steal, useful when you need a portable burner.

I don't need it for portable reasons, but being induction it would save more $$$ energy wise than my full range stove top in the long run

I like how they advertise "precise temperature control". I don't find them precise at all and limited to the actual settings to their presets only. We have one from Costco which is at least 10 years and another from Ikea. I find the Ikea one works well but the Costco works well too, but it's not for low heat cooking in my opinion.

Save your money and buy one of these:

Never had a problem with mine and use it so much I have stopped using my stove which saved me a ton of money in electrical costs. I also use an air fryer now exclusively for foods that normally would have used the stove's oven, saving even more money.

Same experience. Bought one for hot pot for my family of 4. It can’t stay hot enough when we were all attacking it at the same time. Must have 1800w

This one is way too weak for Hot Pot. Don't bother with it. Spend the extra 20 bucks and get the one from Ikea. Keeps a roiling boil no problem.

I once asked the same question, for some reason induction and hot pot are related. From what i gather its becasue the traditional way to make hotpot is away from the regular stove with a butane canister stove and this hotplate being portable is considered an alternative. And in fact a great alternative becasue there are no toxic gas fumes produced indoors by using an induction burner.

regular price is 59.99, so 50% off.
Thumbs up for the deal, thanks. Note that the online price of $60 includes free shipping and handling, and says it may be available in-store at a lower price. Normally I'd guess $50, allowing $10 for the free shipping & handling. $30 is a great deal either way, but Costco.ca has to be taken with a grain of salt.
