Induction Portable Cooktop - which make/model is a good choice?

We decided a portable induction cooktop would be a good thing to have to help us conserve on propane. BUT I'm having a hard time figuring out which one to buy. I'm leaning toward Max Buxton or Fagor and am unsure about Nuwave.

Does any one have any recommendations for which manufacturer and which model?

Thanks.

We got the True Induction 2 burner portable. We love it. It will boil water faster than LP.

We have the Max Burton and a Tru Induction. Both work very well. We also have a full induction range in the S&B. Any of the 1800 watt units should work well.
Here is our install in the RV.

That looks really nice. We have a similar setup in our RV - just the cooktop and no over. I hadn't thought of installing something permanent but we'll have to think about. Never realized it could be done and still look good. Thanks.

I have the Nuwave and I love it. I have been using it for months and like that I can use it inside or take it outside for tailgating. It is a great thing!

Since my DW all most never use any of her induction burners above 7. I wonder if 1300 watts isn't more than enough.

Ditto the Nu Wave. We have two of them and leave the stove covered. Haven't seen the burners in almost a year now. They can be moved to the most convenient place on the counter so space is really optimized.

We have a Circulon; we like the fact that it has a timer that can be set for up to 10 hours. Since we use it at low power instead of a crock pot, having the ability to set the timer for that many hours is important. Many induction burners are designed to turn off after a certain time, often one hour, which limits their ability to be used for slow cooking.

Is it true that you can only use steel pots and pans only?...........I do like me aluminum Teflon pans.

We have the NuWave 2 and use it all the time, both in the S&B and the RV. We also like the pans that come with it.

With an induction burner all cookware must have a cooking surface a magnet will stick to. Ours is all stainless but not all stainless will work; unless the cookware is labeled as suitable for induction check it with a magnet. There are plenty of pieces of Teflon lined stainless cookware.

Do you have a link to where the Circulon induction burner can be purchased. The long time cooking feature is a good one. Most others can only go for 1 to 2.5 hours before they shut off.

I didn't realize that it had been discontinued and doesn't appear to be available. I'll have to take very good care of ours!
