Went with a 9600LS. (The 8300ST had fewer power levels and a smaller temperature range.). Boil will set it to the highest setting for 10 minutes, then shut itself off. The stainless satin finish makes this a beautiful set. With the addition of the P961LS commercial grade PIC, they really have all the bases covered--best of all, at an affordable price. The handles on the cookware set not only stay cool to the touch, but they're also riveted for a better grip. If you have an ordinary gas or electric stove this probably isn’t the set for you. This control panel is unique among portable induction cookers and may be one reason it is such a popular model. The handles of the Duxtop cookware set have been ergonomically designed, so that you can comfortably hold them as you go about your work. the 9600LS is one of the few inexpensive induction cookers that goes lower than 140F. Of the Duxtop models, the 9000 Series are the best options. When you use the timer, the unit shuts itself off when the time has elapsed. No forms of adhesive are applied in the process. For some people, the Duxtop Professional 17 Piece Stainless Steel Induction cookware set is perfect with induction cook-tops. Impact bonded means very durable. The Duxtop P961LS has an angled control panel for safety with touch sensitive buttons. Constructed with 18/10 commercial grade stainless steel and a heavy gauge impact-bonded aluminum encapsulated bottom. Thank you! The 9100MC/9120MC is a good PIC, especially for the price. This 17-piece set includes enough pieces to make any style of cooking possible. That is why you need to buy a whole new set of cookware set when you invest in an induction cook top. The temperature and power levels are as follows: Dimensions (LxWxH, inches): 17.5 x 12.8 x 4, Touch sensitive, digital controls on angled panel, 20 temp levels from 100F - 460F (see table above), 20 power levels from 100W - 1800W (see table above), Up to 10 hr timer settable in 1 minute increments, Auto shut off after 2 hrs if timer is not being used (safety feature). If you increase power to one burner the power available to the other burner decreases. You will still have some difficulty maintaining low temps, but the Duxtop 9100MC and 9600LS, and other models with 20 settings all control temperature better than pretty much every other induction burner under $100. Why people buy the 8100MC/8120MC: Decent performance at a low price. What Standard Features Do Duxtop Induction Cooktops Have? If you want to change the temp or power setting, you're stuck with 8 or 10 of each. (That is, when you just want to boil water, you want the PIC to run full blast, but when you want to cook scrambled eggs or simmer stock, you want the control to be as precise as possible.). Most consumer grade portable induction cookers (like the Duxtops) have a temperature range of 140F-460F and a power range of 200 watts to 1800 watts. Standard features like auto safety shutoff for overheating, high/low voltage warning, and error code message system, plus a Child Safety Lock, 60 second-delayed shutoff when pan is removed--, 10 hour timer, settable in 1-minute increments (will run for 10 consecutive hours). There are other double cooktops on the market with more power, but they cost hundreds more. With this being said, there is no doubt Duxtop cookware will work awesomely for all your cooking needs. What are the characteristics of a good induction cooker? The new offerings--the E200A Sensor Touch, P961LS, and 9620LS LCD Double Burner share these specs and settings, making all of them a great choice whatever style of PIC you're shopping for.
