Just get a strong enough inverter and you should be fine with enough DC power.

$30 is a great price. The only comment I would make is that 1300 watts is going to get you 80% of what you need done. If you regularly boil large pots of water for pasta this will struggle. I just boil my pasta in less water when I use my smaller hob. The 1500 watt one will eventually get there and my 1800 watt unit is a real workhorse. The granularity of the temperature/wattage settings is where these units move upscale. Set a temp or power level and they stay there.

For thirty bucks this is a great way to try out inductive. Once you are hooked you may want something more sophisticated. Inductive really is great although it won't work with anything but ferrous metals like cast iron, steel, and some stainless steel. My favourite trick is using stainless mixing bowls and measuring cups.

Good points. Many "cooking shows" are cooking pasta in a skillet. Try it.Peace

This is bad advice, and a terrible application for battery power.

1300W is a bit weak, hence the lower price

personally i'd stick with 1800W to get the biggest benefit from induction

I use a similar 1300W one mainly for hot pots with group of people. I pre-boil the pot of water on a regular stove range then use the induction cooktop to keep it simmering, for which 1300W is plenty. No need to change butane canister in the middle of eating, and it doesn't heat up the living room much at all (kitchen too small for groups and not a great location for entertainment or socializing). The only minor catches are getting a new induction-compatible divided hot pot, and some cord routing (I use a heavy gauge outdoor extension cord).
