It's a whopping $0.76 cheaper than previous FP deal from last month. Lots of good discussion about this product in that thread

Yes it's perfect for hot pot. No experience with using it for fondue. I use mine too sear meat for smash burgers and it's perfect for it. Much better than any other option. No flames = no flare ups, and it's portable so I can do it outside without smoking up the house

I read the other thread but wasn't able to figure out how variable this is. Other induction cooktops just cycle on and off. If you set it at half power, does it put out 900w consistently or does it turn on 10 seconds turn off 10 seconds and repeat?

Reading the reviews on monoprice, it looks like there isn't any temperature adjustment between 140F and 212F. Pass.

Is there one that is a step up oli should be looking at? I'd like to be able to use larger pans, ie 12 inches to sear steak. Also, 8 temperature settings seems to be a real weakness if you need any precision

Unfortunately, 1800 watts is pretty much the max for single burners around this price range (it's also pretty much the max wattage for use on a 120v.). Also keep in mind, the induction coils are only about 6 inches so the heat is concentrated on the middle 6 inches. I don't think I've ever heard of a 120v induction burner with a 12 inch coil. Largest I've heard is 9", and those are really expensive and require 220V.

Good news is, 1800 watts is more than enough to sear steaks. Since most of that 1800w heat is concentrated in the middle, you can get really good results if you only use the middle area of the pan to sear. I got the best sears on my smash burgers using an induction burner. It was way better than gas and a lot safer since the there are no flareups.

Same deal with precision. If you want more precision, expect to pay more. To be honest, the 8 levels are pretty good.
140°, 212°, 260°, 300°, 350°, 390°, 425°, and 460°F

140 is a good level when you want to keep food warm during hotpots. Everything else an increment of about 40-50 degrees.

If you want more precision, you can consider something like this, at more than twice the price which gives you increments of 25:

If you need even more precision, you can get scientific grade burners which are accurate down to the Fahrenheit and is able to sous vide. Expect to pay a lot more for it.

Mono price says "adjustable power from 200 to 1800 watts". So I would assume that it would be a constant 1000 watts at half power.

Good catch. I'm going to cancel my order. I want a little more control than the presets that are on this model.

Considering between an induction cooktop vs an electric skillet like this Zojirushi: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...3NWQ&psc=1

Main usages are hotpot and on-table grill. Any advice?
