Customer Reviews

For this price we are pleased eventhough we have had to replace these units 3x...they are still preferable and the price still averages a savings over comparable units....we have both the 3500 and 1800 and they both serve their specific purposes well...My BIG advice is never let them boil over...it seems that this is the trigger to their demise....

This range is a 240V and 3500W counter-top induction range and it is very strong. It fires up the food in no time. I like it and I would recommend it. Thank you

When these things are working, they are fantastic. They heat fast and consistently. BUT they only last to just past the warranty. First the LED panel will go out, no big deal, you can still use it. After that it will just stop heating. I have had 2 die on me now.

This is a great unit at a fantastic price. We teach craft beer making and so I didn't have to go out side with a propane burner, we got one of these. It works better than most stove tops at getting up to temp. The rest of the unit stays cool being an induction burner. I would highly recommend this unit.

I have been using this cooktop for almost 50 plates of fries every week for the past year and a half and it has yet to show signs of mechanical trouble. The paint (or markings) you see on the surface of the cooktop is designed to hold the cookware inplace to keep it from slipping. Under heavy use this paint slowly gets coated with oil that naturally finds its way out of the pot by running along the sides towards the surface of the cooktop eventually caking itself on the paint causing slips. I recommend you clean your cooktop after every use to prevent this from happening. Overall performance is excellent, and almost scary if you use cast-iron cookware. You can heatup a 12inch cast iron skillet filled half way with oil to 350degrees in just 3 minutes. Absolute insanity! If you do a ton of deep frying this is a must buy, it makes everything quicker. When using a cooktop with performance as ridiculous as this you MUST change the rules you used to use for anything else when it comes to oil volume / food volume / burner performance ratios for deep frying or you could ruin recipes that once worked fine on a normal stove. The performance is excellent, all 15 amps (@240) being drawn from the wall as advertised. The stands are easy to adjust for uneven surfaces. The cord is alittle too small, overall good product.

I purchased this range to serve as the main heat source for a basement food processing/brewing/canning etc space that I constructed in my basement. While it will require purchasing some new cookware, I am very impressed thus far, the heat control is instantaneous, the output impressive (brought a 5 gallon volume of wort from ~140 degrees to boiling in 15 minutes and maintained a vigorous boil easily) and the unit is very sturdy in its construction and could probably handle stockpots in excess of 10 gallon. I just hope it lasts--but for the price?

This induction is fine, and very reasonably priced. It's not very adjustable (goes from pretty low to super hot in just a few clicks), and the heat tends to be focused in the very center of the pans, so you really must stir stir stir in order to keep your food from scorching in one spot. It gets the job done, but I'm saving up to buy a more sophisticated model.

I bought the IC3500/ 220watt for homebrewing so I could take my operations from the garage to basement. My 10 gallon brew pot (appx13.3") is larger than the cook-top and as result, it takes a while (45min) to boil from room temp. However, once boiling it keeps 6.75 gallons at a nice gentle boil. Keeping the lid 1/2 on creates a much vigorous boil. Initial review of this unit is satisfactory and great bang for the buck. I do recommend this unit for homebrewing.

We've been very happy with this induction burner so far. Strong enough to boil a large pot of water quickly for pasta cooking in the prep kitchen, fast recovery too. Burner is a good size even for our largest rondeau. I wish I had 3 more.

This Avantco 3500W induction burner is fantastic. Priced well below the competition, this burner holds its own in the kitchen. The large glass cooktop is easy to clean and looks great. Stainless body of the burner is well made and sturdy. I use this burner for homebrewing and have had no issue heating up to 8 gallons of wort to rolling boil. I am sure it would boil an even larger amount but have not yet tried. Much cheaper to operate than propane burner. Heats only where the kettle makes contact with the glass so the sides of your kettle do not get scorching hot as they would when using a propane burner. I highly recommend this product.

Instant heat...takes a bit of learning as it's so fast and quick it catches you off guard...very precise heat, great inexpensive option, I paid over twice the price for our other one

As a homebrewer, this unit worked admirably for about 20 batches before the fan gave out. It still heats briefly until it overheats and shuts down. 5 stars while it worked, but not now.

I bought a supposed 2000 watt induction range last year and liked it. It boils water relatively quickly and handles a stir fry well. However, it does not have a setting that gently simmers food. It either boils it rapidly, or it doesn't boil at all. Fortunately 've given that unit away. This 220 volt 3500 watt Avantco induction range is much better. I enjoy cooking and have used this range 8 times since receiving it a few days ago. I've only used heavy enameled cast iron dutch ovens to cook curries and multi-layered Scanpan fry pans to cook omelets. At the 190 deg. setting it gently simmers the pot. I set the timer to 30 minutes and it worked well. Tonight I reheated some food I'd prepared this morning and used the lower temp. settings to start to warm the pot working up a "notch" each couple of minutes. The end result was nice, hot food without any sticking to the pot and nothing burning.

This induction burner works great in our prep kitchen. The sturdy design holds the heavier stock pots & sauce pans. The unit is light and stores away well.

We have a couple of these in booth our kitchens and they are great. We usually get the smaller wattage one but we had great spot with the higher voltage outlet near by, so we upgraded. You have to use magnetic or induction ready cookware on this . we also use cast iron skillets. It boils water super fast, and can maintain a constant temp. On the highest setting it does make a high pitched sound, but you get used to it and with all the other kitchen noise, it isn't that bad. Be careful with handling it and moving it around. We get about a 1.2-2 years out of them before they break.

I bought several of these induction cookers. They work pretty good for the first 6 months but once the time is up the all went down. Luckily they were still under warranty so I was able to get replacements. Overall it's a powerful cooker but don't expect them to last.

I've had this product for a bit now so I feel comfortable revewing it. I do a lot of homebrewing which is entirely what this is used for. It takes maybe 20 minutes to heat strike water and about 35 minutes to bring the full boil volume to a nice rolling boil on full power. At that point I usually turn it down to medium power. All in all this induction cook top is awesome. I would absolutely recommend it.

This induction burner is the perfect space saving solution we have been looking for! We love it! It's shiny! It beeps a lot though. And it's loud.

For homebrewing it's Da Bomb! Brings 4 gallons of 50 degree f water to a rolling boil in 30 minutes and after you add your fermentables is easy to tune the power for the 1 hour boil. Can't comment on long term reliability, but loving it so far.

I am so happy with this equipment. Works flawlessly. This is an upgrade to my 1800 watt Avantco range. Heats extremely fast, It is not noisy and gets the work done, I used it for my first 2 beer batches and I notices a significant time savings by getting to the right temperatures quicker. Great equipment!!

I'm absolutely amazed with this product. It's convenient, lightweight and takes up a minimal amount of counter space. It works super well without adding extra heat to the kitchen and speeds up my cooking times.

This induction range has been a beast and has outlasted many others that we have had that were much more costly. definitely recommend to small restaurants.

We purchase multiple units of the Avantco IC3500 when our primary range went out and we needed to wait 2 weeks for a part. It took us out a jam and we continue to use it on a regular basis. Highly recommend this item.

I purchased two of these Induction Cooker's for my deli in the past two years. I highly recommend it. My crew in the kitchen swear by this brand. The short time it takes to bring water to boil is essential. We also have limited space, so this fits our needs as well. A++

Great countertop cook top. We do not have a flat top or stove in our commercial kitchen, and this has been a great solution to our food preparation needs.

Top of the line induction burner, this thing gets hot super fast. We use for all sorts of things in the bakery, such as bain marie, pastry cream and so much more. It gets hot very quick so when cooking directly on it I use it around 80-120 degrees but hotter when using it as a bain marie or for caramel sauces. Honestly my life would be incomplete with my induction burner, it is super important in my bakery. looking forward to getting another one soon.

I purchased this item to use in my bubble tea shop, specifically to cook boba, which are tapioca balls. I've used it at least 3 times a day for 6 weeks now and I love it. It does exactly what I want it to do. It heats up quickly to a rolling boil and when I turn it down to simmer it goes down as quickly too. I haven't had any issues with this iem and I highly recommend it.
