immersion induction heater

My first cooking tool (in college) was an immersion heater - a heater coil that I placed in a cup of water to heat it. I'd even make a 'stew' in a beer stein - adding bread, sausage and cheese to the hot water.

shows an induction version. A metal probe in placed inside the water container which sits on top of the induction coil. Still a prototype. It's being billed as a major energy saver over hot pots. Though it might not be much of a savings over a small sauce pan on a regular induction hot plate.
