    Finding this website is like an early Xmas present for me! So...my first post.

    Last week I visited our area's new kitchen supply store and kind of fell in love with an Iwatani countertop induction burner. I'd never heard of the brand before, and I can't find any reviews of the specifc item (IWC-1800). Are their products generally reliable and sturdy?

    I don't know the cooktop, but every Iwatani product I've ever used has been extremely well designed, well made and a well thought-out joy to use.

    Sorry to be so lukewarm,

    As an 1800 watt countertop unit, that's on the pricey side. Looks nice. I'm not finding a good description of its features anywhere. I'd hope it has very fine controls for temperature and power at that price.

    I couldn't find any reviews for it either. I have a Max Burton 1800 watt unit I like quite well.
