Max Burton Induction Cooktop Review

Updated on January 19, 2014

Recently I made the decision to buy an induction cooktop, I did this mainly because I live alone so I do a lot of cooking for one person and I always found it a bit silly to have to use the stove to cook a one pot meal and because I had read about the advantages of induction cooking. I choose to go with the Max Burton 6200 mostly because it had a lot of positive reviews at Amazon. So far I am very happy with my choice.

The best thing by far about an induction cooktop is how fast it cooks, this is particularly noticeable when you are boiling water. I haven't actually compared the amount of time that it takes but I can say for certain that it boils at least twice as fast.

The other thing that I really like about using my new cooktop is that it allows you to control the temperature precisely, you just set it to the temperature that you want and that is what you will get, it makes cooking much easier and means that there is basically no chance of burning anything. One minor issue in this regard is that the heat tends to be higher in the middle of the pot than along the edges so it can be a bit tricky getting things to cook evenly when you first start using it.

Other advantages to induction cooking are that they don't get hot, they use less energy and they are much easier to clean than a stovetop. The top is a smooth surface so all you have to do is to wipe it off.

The only real downside that I have encountered is that I had to buy some new pots as an induction cooktop only works with pots that are made of stainless steel or iron, most of mine were aluminium.

Having used my induction cooktop for a few months now I am a complete convert, I only use my stove when I absolutely have to and I am seriously considering having an induction range installed so that I can do all my cooking this way, it is just so much easier and faster.
