The Empava Induction cooktop is an ideal option for those always rushing when cooking and don't have time for meticulous clean-ups after cooking.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent for fast cooking
It reacts to temperature settings changes instantly, about 4x faster than most conventional stoves. This allows you to boil a full large pot in only less than 2 minutes.
Pro Works fine with a wet/greasy hand
There's no need to poke hard since the touchscreen controls are sensitive like a phone screen. They even respond to wet/oily fingers, which is the usual case for people who are cooking.
Pro Allows you to accurately control the heat settings
The Empava has 9 heat level settings you can easily adjust using digital touch controls. This lets you fine-tune the temperature settings from melt to rapid boil, for example.
Pro Cleanup is effortless
Because heat is generated directly to the cookware, the cooktop stays cool to the touch, making it safe to clean even after you've just finished cooking. And since it has a smooth tempered glass surface, you can easily wipe it down with a damp cloth.
Con Has no metal trims for protection
This cooktop does not come with any metal trim pieces to protect the vulnerable glass edges.
Con Does not have a low setting
Unlike most other induction cooktops, the Empava doesn't really have a 'low setting'. It only throttles the temperature down by powering on and off rather than staying at the lowest level like other inductions cooktops do. Simmering on low heat may be hard with this quirk.
Con Requires space
The Empava demands space since the cord comes out the back side corner and there is a fan at the back to keep the cooktop cool.
