This was a great addition to my kitchen because you don't want to always have to use gas to cook certain meals. This product heats up really fast and the cool down period is also pretty fast. I have a pretty small kitchen, so storage is always and issue. This product is very easy to store. Temperature Control Heats very fast. Durability I've had this product for a few years now and its still going strong. Design The compact design is great! Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean.
