Portable electric single burner...?

captainzap Mar 6, 2010 06:32 AM

Hey all,

I am looking to get a decent (i.e. over 1000 watts) portable electric single burner. Has anyone seen any around? I looked at the 'usual suspects' (Canadian Tire, Walmart, Sears) but haven't found any that seem 'right'.

    Try Monas on Parc. ave.

      You might also want to consider a portable induction unit. Faster and safer than electric.

        Concur with eat2much on induction as that's faster, more powerful and won't set anything on fire. Vollrath has a portable unit that's pretty powerful for a couple of hundred.

        Suggest looking at Despres Laporte, Deco-Decouverte and Ares in addition to where you have already looked.

          There are also a few stores in Chinatown (on St-Laurent) that sell inexpensive Asian import induction units.

          Captain, I was considering this one from Walmart:
