Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How big of a pot can you put on the Duxtop countertop burner?
A. This cooking top measures 10.5-inches by 10.5-inches, while the burner is an 8-inch diameter circle. You can use pots up to 12-inches; however, you should know that a pot/skillet of this size will extend over the control panel. I would therefore advise you to go with a pot/skillet that is 10-inches and less.
Q. Will the oil maintain an accurate temperature when you are deep frying food?
A. Yes. The cooktop is precise, and once you have achieved the temperature you desireyour oil will maintain that temperature.
Q. Does the induction cooktop make a buzzing sound?
A. Yes, clad cookware makes a high pitched noise when being used. This is normal, and should not worry you.
P.S. The Duxtop 1800 is much quieter than most induction cooktops, so you don’t have to worry about the noise produce by the clad cookware that you use.
While the Duxtop 8100mc does take some getting used to, it is a safe and efficient induction cooktop that can be used for a variety of cooking situations. So if you are looking for a versatile induction cooktop, I would definitely recommend the 8100mc.
