Pro Perfect for small kitchens
This two-burner cooktop is a very effective solution for those that have small kitchens. Not only will it occupy considerably less space than a regular five-burner cooktop, you also can place it in a drawer when you need to free up an extra kitchen surface.
Pro Portable design
The TI-2C can be used almost anywhere, all you need is a mains power supply and a 24" by 14" flat surface to place it on. Carrying the unit is easy, as it weighs only 11 pounds.
Pro Efficient induction cooking
The cooktop uses induction technology, meaning that it heats up to cookware itself and not the burners. Not only does it use power more efficiently, it heats up almost instantly, taking only half a minute to heat a pan. Another benefit is that the surface doesn’t get hot, as the energy is transferred directly to the cookware.
Pro You can decide how burners share power
It can divide the maximum available 1800 W between its burners. For example, you can use the maximum 1800 W on just one burner, or do distributions like 600 W on one and 1200 W on another.
Pro Individual timers
You can set a timer for each of the burners separately, reducing the risk of overcooking food.
Pro Touch control is easy to use
The touch-sensitive controls consist of a couple of buttons that are very intuitive and easy to use. You can set the needed power level or temperature with a single press of a button.
Pro Has different versions
The TI-2C is a portable cooktop that's great for lodges, caravans or those who don’t want to install a cooktop into their countertop. However, there is also a TI-2B model, which is technically identical but can be built in countertops, and an MD-2B model, which is a smaller version with smaller burners that can be either carried around or installed permanently in your kitchen.
Con Makes annoying noises
When using burners at full power, it makes a loud humming noise which can be annoying.
Con Needs specialized cookware
You can only use cookware that is compatible with induction cooktops.
Con Can't be locked
