Gourmia GIC-100 Multifunction Portable 1800W Induction Cooker Cooktop Countertop Burner : OK for the price

Seems to be working as advertised. Didn’t expect it to have a fan.

At first i had issues operating it but my wife ,cousin and sister helped when they noticed the pots has to fit exactly.

This unit is the perfect example of the k. This unit is the perfect example of the k. Principle (keep it simple stupid). I tried others but this portable induction cooker hits the nail on the head. It took all of twenty seconds to set it for my bacon and eggs and the same for heating the water for my french coffee maker. Aside from the power on/off button, you have a select button and a knob to turn for the power/temp/time.

Coming to it after using the nuwave pic which stopped working within weeks of the end of its warranty. The gourmia gic does not have all the features, but seems to stand up better. Will update after several more months of use.

  • I love using this
  • Heats quickly, energy efficient.
  • Nice design; works well; does anyone make small one?

I can now cook with out standing at the st e, and actually cook sitting down.

Pans work on this unit that did not work on my prior unit.

I’ve used many other brands but this. I’ve used many other brands but this one is especially easy to use with a simplified control system that i like much better than the multiple button arrangements on other brands.

This is an absolute steal for the price.

I am sure i will be using this frequently. It heats my pans very quickly with out heating up the kitchen. It appears to be well made and doesn’t take up to much room on my counter. I am pleased with my purchase.

Seems to be working as advertised. Didn’t expect it to have a fan.

Easy controls, just does a great job. Heats water to boiling really faster than stated. Easy controls, just does a great job.I am very pleased with this purchase. I would recommend getting a heat diffuser to use with pots and pans that don’t have a magnetic bottom. This allows me to use the pots and pans that i already have and not have to buy new ones to use with the induction cooker. Also, buying through amazon is the only way to go.

This item exceeded my expectations. I turn my back and the pot of water i set on it is boiling in no time.

The cooktop was just delivered and we’re learning to use it. We were amazed at how fast a pan heats and responds to changes in temperature settings. Unfortunately, we have to learn by experience. The manual provided in the box was obviously written overseas and is almost worthless. I first saw a demonstration of induction cooking about 70 years ago and have wanted to try it ever since.

Very quick to heat liquids using less 1/3 less watts. One issue i have is when powering it on. Is that it would be helpful if it started at it’s lowest power setting instead of 5 which is about 1000 watts, this would allow the use of burner in camping or rv use with smaller power inverters with less than 1200 watts continuous rating.

I would appreciate more precise temp controls, and it has failed to recognize small pans. Otherwise, i have been pleased. I bought this as a second burner and it functions well in that capacity.

Fantastic device, arrived surprisingly quick and functions in a superior manner.

Pretty delighted, does the job very well. For what i paid, no complaints. I procured mine via warehouse discounts and it arrived in like-new situation and would seem to operate completely and properly. It did not come with a manual but i was equipped to obtain and print a pdf variation from the gourmia internet internet site. The handbook is needed to fully grasp how to start employing it and being familiar with the control panel. At the time i experienced this, i was in a position to use it successfully. This is a relatively refined cooktop product or service, not just on/off/significant-reduced – if you require a good amount of regulate each in timing and temperature regulation (like holding meals heat on a buffet, or frying), this will be quite helpful. I assume just one might would like to be mild when working with cast iron with this i am worried that i will scratch it. I didn’t notice the floor is very hot both equally for the duration of and following cooking (vs. Other induction burners that i have observed), but not a enormous issue for me.

Fantastic device, arrived incredibly quick and capabilities in a outstanding manner.

This counter-top cooker does the job i required for it. Our electric stove did not get sizzling adequate to boil a huge quantity of water in our six-quart jar canner. This just one does the task properly.

1st working experience with induction: excellent so much. I am new to induction, so i have began with boiling water.I appreciate the crystal clear advice on the good dimensions for induction all set cookware. It tends to make it really uncomplicated for me to see which parts of our cookware set finest healthy this measurement induction device (virtually all of them. ) i do not have any encounter accomplishing recipes so i will have to climb that mastering ladder.

I would respect far more specific temp controls, and it has unsuccessful to understand small pans. Usually, i have been delighted. I purchased this as a second burner and it capabilities properly in that potential.

Tremendous pleased with this cooker. Heats up tremendous swift and i like the ease of the push buttons. I would buy from yet again.
