Induction Hob at Costco

kaleokahu | Feb 15, 2012 11:07 AM

What to my eyes appeared yesterday as I serpentined through my local Costco? An "Aroma" 1500W induction hotplate, for the princely sum of $49.99.

Seems to me this is cheap innoculation against being accused of not having any "real-world" experience with the voodoo that is induction. For that price, I can fool with a converter disk, watt meter, and my new IR gun.

But for the record, is there anyone out there who already has one of these, and/or who already *knows* its coil (as opposed to the electronics) is not representative of the genre? Speak now or forever hold your peace.
