I'm debating if I should buy this at this price as I'm also looking for the 2-tier steamer attachment for $40 locally...

Don't know about this item specifically, but every Bruno product I have purchased has been rock solid so far.

Social media fad, sole purpose for this hot plat is for likes. Take it home, snap an IG and story, write a long paragraph about how good it is and how hard it was to get. Wait for a bunch of likes within the next day or so. Then return it, saying its defective cause you didn't get the amount of upvotes you were expecting. What a trend...

My wife just bought from xiaohong mall, and we had hotpot today for lunch. The hotpot plus steamer plus divided pot = 120 + 40 +40.
(Accessories are regular priced at 40)
It is expensive to me... And wife regretted choosing the yellow colour.
Anyway, we chose to keep it.

Left side gets hot / boils faster than the right side.

I still don't get it either. Like... it's tiny, you could barely cook/heat 2 people's portion of food in it. I get there are common dishes which could use this- but man, for $120? That's a whole lotta $0 nuggets.

It's all about the look. The tinier the better.

And the one app on my wife's phone that I hate the most is xiaohongshu. It's notorious

This thing isn't intended for family use. My coworkers bring this to the office to cook hotpot in their room. Students use this in their shared kitchen.

Have you ever had Korean BBQ? This is at least same size, if not bigger capacity than that.

Is the size useful in real life cooking? What experience do you guys have cooking a meal with it?

From my vast experience of watching kdramas, you could use this thing to cook while you eat. Plate of raw meat on one side and hot plate on the other. Cook and eat small batches of meat instead of doing the entire plate in one go.

Not ugly per se, but that caricature can definitely use some diversity considering the target audience of this product.

I thought it’s a Taiwanese brand? Why are they made in China smh.

Looks like a toy. Good if you weigh under 50Kg I guess.

hmm, I saw this at T&T and it didn't look that big. At least compared to the KBBQ grills but circle vs rectangle.
