Save Money on a Space-Saver

Amazon’s Deal of the Day Is the Perfect Solution to a Small Kitchen


August 10, 2018 Deals By

This well-reviewed Duxtop model, which is half off its usual price today, is the savior of your dorm, apartment or otherwise tiny living space that doesn’t have a range or stove. What does induction mean? Plug it into the wall, set a temperature (100 to 460 degrees) and cook. It’s all of 14 inches wide and 11 inches deep.

Induction cooktops, for the uninitiated, operate via electrifying a coil inside the device, which in turn generates a magnetic field. The cooktop does not provide heat on its own — only when you place a pan (stainless steel or cast-iron, copper an aluminum don’t work) on the “burner” is heat generated by way of the magnetic field charging currents through the pan. What does that actually mean? The pan can heat and change temperature very quickly, per your input on the cooktop. Induction cooktops will bring water to a boil faster, be ready to sear faster and anything else that relies on the heating of a pan in cooking.

The Duxtop induction cooktop is marked down from $150 to $75 for today only.

Note: the clicking noise you’ll hear when you cook on it is completely normal. Don’t panic.
