The pot, however, oxidized or something after first use (there were marks on the bottom of the pot).
I ordered this induction cooker because it’s the exact one that my favorite hot pot restaurant uses. We’ve only used it for hot pot so far. Told my friend about this and she got the same one and loves it too.
Just got the cook top today and used it already. The included pot is pretty cheaply made but works fine with the cooker. Most of my other pots work well on the induction cooktop so i didn’t have to buy much else. I like that the cooktop has a rough finish so it will hides scratches better and it looks to be pretty durable. What i would like as improvements is more power settings so you can more finely manage the temperature and also a timer that you can adjust by the minute. Currently the timer only has 10 minute increments.
It cooks everything perfectly in less time. I like the way you can set the timer and walk away.

- Tatung Induction Cooker with Stainless Steel Pot – 1500 Watts(BLACK)
I have used these for about three years. It does what an induction cooker is supposed to do. I do not give it top rating for two main reasons: it needs a heat selection between 2 and 3. The jump between 2 and 3 is bigger than i like. And the heat zone is smaller than ideal for a ten-inch or larger pan so that you get a concentration of heat in the center of the pan. Those who like to use cast iron pans can use them with this cooker. But be aware that, because cast iron does not spread heat as well as an induction-ready aluminum pan, the hot spot in the middle of 10-inch and larger cast iron pans is substantial. Another thing cast iron users should consider is that this cooker has a heat sensor which limits how hot a pan can get. The limit is low enough to make touching up the seasoning of a cast iron pan difficult.
Just got this tatung cooker to try out induction cooking for the first time. So far i’d say i’m happy but there will be a learning curve to master. Pros:does indeed start heating very quicklyresponsive to power level changes – water will start/stop boiling within seconds of a changeseems to work with my existing pans (including the t-fal stainless steel with copper in their bases – i have an old set which looks a bit different from what you can currently buy)large surface copes with my biggest potscons:noise – this is probably typical for most of these devices but there is a high pitch whine while the pan is on the cooker, what’s a little more disconcerting are the lower power levels where there is a click-click-click as the coil turns on and offalthough per above the power control is responsive, the lowest two power levels turn the coil on and off every few seconds (like a microwave on low power) rather than reduce the power going to the coil – this means getting a precise simmer is a little trickysupplied pan is ok, though not very thick metalin summary, it seems fine for high heat applications (like boiling) but will need some getting used to for lighter cooking.
This cooker works well for the price i paid for.
You must experiment to find out that only the inner circle on the cooker is really hot so the pan should be shaped to get all the heat from the center. It says that pans up to 10 inches will work but with a flat 10 inch pan, only the center really cooks. The pot that comes with it works well but a 10 inch flying pan did not cook on the edges.
One of my friends recommended it to me. Then i ordered one from amazon. Our whole family loves it very much.
This cooktop is a great way to try induction cooking. The heat control is precise and responsive like gas; maybe better. Warning, it may not work with all of your pans, especially if they are all aluminum or copper-clad stainless. It’s portable and lightweight. It will be excellent for home canning. It will also provide an additional side burner for holiday meals. The fan makes a little noise, like a small microwave. Some pans make a slight whirring sound as current is induced through them.
This review is for the tatung tict-1500w. I bought this induction cooktop from newegg on sale for $49. That was $20 off their normal price. I also have a burton induction cooktop that i bought from amazon for about $90. I have owned the burton for about a year now. The tatung looks and feels much cheaper than the burton. The burton has 10 power levels, the tatung has six. When cooking rice, the burton simmers it just right at power level number one, however on the tatung power level 1 isn’t enough and power level 2 is a little too much. With the burton i can set the timer in minutes, the tatung has six choices 10,20,30,60,120. I can also set the temperature on the burton, but not on the tatung.
This was 2nd purchase as a gift.
My husband bought this cooker over two years ago, i believe i do have more experience to say something about this cooker. Actually we love it, i designed to use it in backyard cooking because no smoke and not afraid of wind blowing all the flames,and it has been true all the time. My mom use it cooking outside a lot and doing some yardwork in the same time. It is very durable, reliable, we leave it at outside all year around, it still works on matter rain, hot or cold weather. It has controller for power adjustment. Sometime we carry it to camping side as long as it has electricity. The only drawback of this cooker is you do need a steel pot to react with the induction, alumina or others does not work. Maybe most of non-sticker pot are not made from steel, just be ware of that. I did buy one non-stick pot made from steel especially for this cooker.
It met my expectations as i use it each time i cook hot pot. . I like the big buttons on the control panel, it makes it easy for me to turn off and on the cooker.
A decent product for a decent price. It is not as precisely temperature controlled or time controlled as some other models are, but i didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg for what amounts to a hot plate either. It heats very quickly, is easy to clean and looks nice. After you use the pan the first time or two you have to clean it by heating vinegar in it because the pan gets these funny induction swirls in it. Just follow the directions and it will work out fine. The low setting is a little too low. Its ok as a warmer but its not enough to simmer.
I bought this induction cook top to have chinese hot pot at home. The product was shipped in a timely manner. The product is as described. It heats quickly and has +/- temperature adjustments which work very well. I recommend the cook top for anyone wanting to have a good quality cook top for hot pot or as a second burner.
I ordered this cooker thursday afternoon and received saturday (very fast shipping). Tonight i tested it by deep frying some fish using the pot that comes with it and i must say i’m impressed. It didn’t take long for the oil to heat (on medium/high) and it didn’t take long for the fish to fry (on medium heat). That never happened with my electric skillet. If the cookware you use is not induction ready, the unit will beep a few times then shut off. There is a very high pitched tone you can hear in addition to the fan when the cook top is heating but i only heard it when boiling water; i didn’t hear it when i was frying and its not really bothersome. It seems the only negative with induction cooking (so far) is having/finding the right cookware to use. Edit; this cook top is still going strong and works the same as when i first bought it.
Proquick heat for boiling water of less than 10 ounces. The speed didn’t beat other methods when boiling a large pot of water to make soup. Mother also use one, and we use these instead of common kitchen stove (electric or gas). Less risk of forgetting to turn off the heat / stove. Mother likes to clean the stove after using, and the electric stove, which could still beover 212 degrees after use, burned her towelthis unit doesn’t burn her towel. My mother and i do forget turning off the stove using regular stove top, electric or gas. Somehow, we never had this problem,control heats well on no.
Works with my basic stainless steel pots i bought from macy’s years back. It’s a bit noisy – there’s high pitch sound at low heat settings. Quiet down at higher settings though. It heats things up very fast, and very easy to clean afterward.
Great for home hot pot or shabu shabu meals. The pot is fairly sturdy and well made. It’s been a year since we bought this and it is still working fine.
To those having issues with lights 3 and 4 blinking. I received one and it didn’t work at all. If you take it apart using the screws on the back, you notice a small rubber bubble in the middle of the copper coil. There is some sort of sensor (probably magnetic) located on the top of that sensor, covered by a coating of white substance. I am assuming this is what initiates the induction process when a steel pot is detected on it. I tried wiping off the white substance so that there is a better connection and put the device back together and it worked just fine after that.
I’m building some eco cottages with kitchenettes; therefore, my interest exceeds even that of the typical homeowner. Induction cooking is the most efficient way to cook, so with ‘eco’ cottages, i love the technology and fully intend to use it. Built-in nduction cooktops cost a mint, so i wanted to try this, plus if you’re doing something in the kitchen that doesn’t require its use, you can put it aside in the corner of the countertop or even store it in the cupboard. Alternately, you can pull the spare from the cabinet and have two running, no problem. These are very common in europe but just catching on here. In 10 years, i predict these will dominate u. Simple, the direct control of gas with the ease of care associated with a smooth electric cooktop.
