This Secura 8100MC 1800W Portable Induction Cooktop from Secura is a compact and lightweight cooking solution. This Duxtop uses 15 amps of electricity over 120 Volts. This electric cooktop is one of the most portable induction stoves available. Cooking settings are incorporated through a digital control panel where you can set the power levels ranging from 200 to 1800 Watts through 10 levels.
Similarly, you have temperature control levels ranging from 140 degrees Fahrenheit to 460 degrees Fahrenheit. The higher wattage results in quicker heating ensuring that your food is cooked fast. The induction cooking method is one of the most energy efficient model. The conventional method of cooking uses an incandescent flame to heat the vessel which in turn through conduction heats the contents of the vessel.
However, in the induction cooktop there is no heat transfer by thermal conduction. Instead, the cooking vessel is heated through magnetic induction that directly heats up the vessel to achieve very high temperatures in a short span of time.
The Secura 8100MC 1800W Portable Induction Cooktop can be used instantly out of the box. Simply plug it, get a suitable cookware and start cooking. It consumes very little space owing to its compact design measuring just 13 x 11.5 x 2.5 inches. Just make sure that you use an induction ready cookware made of stainless steel or one with a magnetic bottom, or cast iron.
The inbuilt count-down digital timer can be set from 1 minute to 170 minutes incrementally. The automatic pan detection feature turns off the heating as soon as the cookware is removed from the cooktop and also shuts the unit after 60 seconds of inactivity.
As far as safety is concerned this Induction cooktop has a high and low voltage warning system as well as a diagnostic error message system. This gadget is ETL approved and hence meets the safety standards. This is easy to clean by just using a damp cloth.
