Rating: 4.5/5 Stars from over 500 reviews
The Duxtop 9100MC might be the best homestyle induction cooktop we have on our list. If we took the customer
reviews as our only indication, it might very well be. To average over 4.5 stars with over 500 reviews is really quite an accomplishment. However, we don’t just go by user reviews, so we have our own opinion. Nonetheless, it’s still a great unit!
At a Maximum of 1800 Watts this unit actually offers 5 distinct power levels (going as low as 200 Watts) which is good if you are cost conscious when it comes to your energy bill. Similarly it has temperature ranges (15 of them) from a balmy 140 degrees all the way up to a scorching 460 degrees (which accounts for all types of cooking needs).
It’s slightly more expensive than our other units, coming in at just under 70 bucks, be we think it’s worth it. Comes with a 1 year warranty and is made to last.
Rating 5/5 Stars!
This cost-effective model is an excellent fit for most all applications. Featuring 8 temperature settings, from 140 to 460 degrees, it can be used for any stovetop cooking applications, including boiling, deep-frying, stir-fry/wok, and much more.
Use the clock timer for up to 3 hours (180 minutes) and rest easy with the auto-shutoff function. This model is also very energy efficient as it uses up to 90% less energy than electric stoves or gas grills.
Also easier to clean than a traditional stovetop due to the fact that it remains cool to the touch at all time. Spills and splashes won’t burn and stick to the surface, making cleanup a breeze compared to your traditional stove/oven combo.
Overall a great deal at under 50 bucks. Picks yours up today!

This is one high and low energy consumption cooker. It sports the ability to boil water in 90 seconds , is the only cooker with precision temp. controls up to 575 degrees! (Most models max out as 460 degrees), and reportedly saves up to 70% of energy compared to traditional electric stoves.
This Precision Nuwave model is a little bit more expensive than some of our models but it has the extra features that make up for it. It reportedly heats up twice as fast as most other induction cookers and allows much more precise control over temperature ranges (hence the name!) Going all the way of to 575 degrees allows for super high temperature applications like searing foods or fast boiling.
All in all the customer review speak for this one, averaging over 4.5 stars from over 340 reviews, it must be doing something right!
Rating: 4/5 Stars from 46 Reviewers.
This 1500 watt unit is perfect for the casual induction cooker. With temp. ranges from 176 to 518 degrees, it can go upwards of 1500 Watts to put a good sear on food. A 4-hour timer allows for slow cooking (like a crock pot) without the anxiety of having to check in every few minutes.
It has 7 different cooking models and a touch sensitive control and display, and it easy to clean and maintain. It remains cool to the touch so that stains and spills won’t stick and become hard to remove.
The price is extremely competitive at under 50 bucks and would make a great addition to anybody’s cooking arsenal. Make sure to use induction compatible cookware in order to take advantage of this great technology.
