Looks great Jim! Have you tried the 2 qt. water boiling test we've been discussing?

I'm trying the portable first to see if I like it. HSN has the pro titanium version 1800 watts for $99, worth a try! Really love the looks of the built in, gorgeous!

No sir. Been cooking on it for about a week, using single as well as double burners. It works fast, much faster than gas and about the same speed as the portable 1800W unit we test drove prior to deciding to go with a permanent installation. I'm pleased with it.

Nice. We went from a gas in our old coach to this same cook top in our new coach. Only used it a few times but it works like a dream. I know you are going to love it. Good luck and great work with the install.

One of the things that I like least about the portable True Induction cooktop is the fan noise. Can you comment on how much the cabinetry muffles the noise?

As you read above, the power with the cast iron skillet was only 1350 watts, which leads me to believe that there's something wrong with the cooktop.

I gotta sign off for today. I'll check in tomorrow!

I received the True Induction large boiler that Tony sent. I tried it today with the exact results that I got with my Duxtop boiler! I also tried the test with the MH generator running which gave me 115 VAC under load compared to the 109.5 VAC that I was getting plugged into my 30A outlet at home. That only gave me 1375 watts and the water still never boiled, except for a few small bubbles after about 15 minutes!

I'll be calling Tony Monday and see it he will finally admit that the stovetop is not doing what it's supposed to!

Mike,
I can barely hear the fans with ambient noise in the coach. If I lean down near the cooktop I can hear them but just barely.

It sure sounds to me like you may have a defective cooktop. I can boil water quickly and both burners at the same time.

Joe,
If you really got 1300 watts to the two quarts of water, it should rise from a temperature of 70 F to 212 F in 8 minutes and boil a few minutes later.

Those measured watts are going somewhere, but not to the boiler. Something is really bad with your unit.

Good Luck!
Wil

I checked the temp in the water with a laser thermometer. The highest it reached is 202 degrees after about 15 minutes where the water just barely begins to boil, but doesn't get any higher!

A remote possibility that may seem far fetched. Those metal (aluminum) strips that you installed on the bottom could act as a shorted turn on whatever passes as the induction element. The effect would reduce the efficiency of the induction element as part of the magnetic field would be shunted into the aluminum straps. This stray induction can be a factor in many other applications with high magnetic fields. Try observing the operation with out the straps.

Phil, aluminum does not affect magnetism. That's the reason you can't use aluminum cookware.

This thread made me curious since we installed induction burners last year but I had never tested as you suggested.
I knew my wife was happy but I had no idea how quickly they would boil water so I just tested.

I used a 5 qt enamel cast iron pot and never got 2 qts of water to boil.It never reached boiling even after 12 minutes the infrared gun only showed 190.

Then I used a 3 qt T-fal pan and the water boiled in 8min 30 secs.

Now I know which pot to use to boil pasta! LOL!!

We have installed 2 Max Burton 1800 watt cooktops on two separate 15 amp circuits.We also removed our propane tank and now have a new storage space.
