Summary: This hot plate sounds great from all the features it has, plus the price is very reasonable. However, it seems that they have a lot of these being returned because they don't work properly directly out of the box. In my opinion you would be better off with something such as the Kalorik DKP-21898 1400-Watt Portable Chrome Cooktop with 2 Cast-Iron Cooking Plates. This portable range is similar in features and price, but much more reliable.
Summary: This double hot plate has some great features, but unfortunately takes forever to heat up. I would recommend you buy something such as the Maxi-Matic EDB-302 Elite Cuisine 1000-Watts Double Hot Plate. This double cooktop is about twice the price, but still very reasonable. It is much more efficient and a much better unit overall.
