This review is from: Logitech M570 910-001799X Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Trackball
Pros: It's a trackball so you don't have to move or lift it to get to where you want it to be. Works smoothly and has back and forward plus last app buttons.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as an extra knowing someday in the future the one I have will deteriorate and decompose. Now I will be ready for the future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast heating, good control, uses small amount of energy and easy cleanup.
Cons: Induction cooking has a learning curve. There is no flame to gauge the heat as in gas/propane cooking and no glow on the rings as in electric cooking. It is a little noisy but bearable. My wife does not like induction cooking because her hard boiled eggs were soft boiled on her first use of the induction cooktop. The H light does not go off, just flashes constantly but the unit is off. This happened after a couple of months but works just fine otherwise.
Other Thoughts: I am a retired Executive Chef and had wanted to try an induction cooktop for many years and never had the opportunity. I purchased this Tatung unit and been very happy with it. You have a lot of control once you learn to use it but be careful! Induction cooking is much quicker than either electric or gas and the base is cool after a few seconds after finishing. The heat is immediately transferred to the pan, (must be ferrous metal... and anodized won't work either even is the metal is ferrous). The settings are 1 thru 9, one being less than a simmer. The heat is transferred by cycles rather than a constant heat, much like high end gas cooktops. I have cooked with just about every method of head out there including combi-therm and induction is probably my next range... that is if I can convince my wife.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cooks fast. Turns off like a gas burner, quickly!
Cons: Noisy and has a small cooking area. Does not heat cooking pots and pans which have a coated bottom, even if they are made of a ferrous material.
Other Thoughts: This induction hot plate will bring a pot of water to a boil really quickly. It makes a rice better than my rice cooker after you learn how to use it. At $49 it's a decent buy.READ FULL REVIEW
