The Counter Inset by Health Craft True Induction
The Health Craft Double Burner Counter Inset Induction Cooktop is one of the best cooktops on the market. This double burner unit has been specifically designed to be inset into your countertop. We have extended the glass top to achieve a seamless inset. Simply cut a 15 5/16 inch wide by 23 11/16 inch long cutout in your countertop and lightly place the unit into your desired placement. This unit can also be portable and placed wherever you would like, which is beneficial for dorm rooms, camping, or needing extra burners for a special occasion.
There are multiple safety features within the unit, it has a built-in safety turn-off feature that registers when the cookware is removed from the burner and placed back on, allowing for a safe cooking experience. Once the cooktop reaches its maximum temperature of 450 degrees, it will stay at that temperature and will not exceed it.
The unit has a one piece ceramic glass surface made for easy cleaning. All that is needed is a damp cloth to wipe down the top surface or it can be easily removed from the counter top for a more detailed clean. One of the best feature is the ability to power share between the two burners. When only one burner is needed it uses 100% of the watts, when both burners are in use the watts are split between the two of them.
The unit uses a magnetic-based technology that generates heat using a magnetic circuit when a ferrous metal (steel/cast iron) cookware is placed on the cooktop. This magnetic circuit allows only the pot or pan to heat up using a magnetic field to direct the heat only to the cookware. As a result the cooktop allows food to cook faster, saving time, energy, and most importantly money. When purchasing optimal induction cookware the bottom should be flat with a diameter of 4.5 inch to 10 inch. To test if your current cookware is induction compatible, take a magnet and stick it to the bottom; if the magnet sticks, then your cookware is ready to be used on your new True Induction cooktop.
Features: Can be used as a portable or installed. 120v 60hz

True Induction cookers are a new method of cooking for a modern world. With their magnetic-based technology for producing heat, not only do induction cookers cook faster than traditional stoves, but they are also more energy efficient. When using a standard stove top, the burner generates heat that goes in all directions leaving only some of the heat to cook the food on the stove. Induction cookers, on the other hand, generate a magnetic circuit with ferromagnetic cookware causing the ferromagnetic pots/pans to heat up, keeping all of the heat concentrated in the cookware rather than the air around it. This concentration of heat allows food to cook faster and uses less energy to generate, saving you time and money.
Now, True Induction would like to introduce a new variation of their induction cooker: the Double Burner Counter Inset. Other induction cookers sit on top of your counter; taking up space, being another object that needs to be moved when cleaning, and looking more like something extra in a kitchen rather than a part of the kitchen. With the Double Burner Counter Inset, you can now install your induction cooker into the counter itself, forming a seamless surface to prep and cook food with. Plus, induction cookers do not require special cleaners so you can use the same cleaner for your counter on the induction cooker itself.
Additionally, since the Double Burner Counter Inset is not attached to a giant oven unit, you can install it wherever you think it will be the most accessible and leave the most room for you to work with. You could even purchase two Double Burner Counter Inset units and lay them out side-by-side or in the traditional stove top arrangement or have one on one side of the kitchen and one on the other. The possibilities are endless.
True Induction cookers are the way of the future and the Double Burner Counter Inset is here to lead the way. You can now cook food faster to meet your time requirements and use less energy while doing it, saving you money in the long run. It plugs into any electrical outlet so even if you don't install it into your countertop, you can still make use of it if there is an electrical outlet nearby. Thus, if you love cooking or even if you're looking for a quick, simple method of cooking, look no further than the Double Burner Counter Inset. This Counter inset model also comes with one free small True Induction Gourmet saute pan and lid.
The following is an informational video on how to install the True Induction Inset Model:
|Induction cooking utilizes magnetic-based technology to excite the molecules within the metal contained in compatible ferrous (meaning magnetic) cookware. This creates a magnetic circuit where the cookware itself then heats because of the molecule excitement. This process enables rapid heating times with cookware heating evenly in 45 seconds and water boiling in 90 seconds.
Enjoy hot beverages or soups faster than previously thought imaginable without the limitations of using a microwave. Induction cooking is more energy efficient because it reduces heat from diverting to the general cooking area and it creates a safer cooking experience because there are no open flames or exterior heated coils.
Induction requires pots and pans that are made of ferrous (meaning magnetic) materials. Check your cookware's retail box for the induction symbol. To tell if your current cookware is compatible with the induction technology, grab a magnet and see if it holds to the bottom of the cookware. If your magnet stays then your cookware is ready to be used on the True Induction double burner induction inset cooktop! Optimal cookware has a flat bottom and a diameter of 4.5” - 10” inches.
Before cleaning always switch OFF the device and unplug, wait for it to be completely cool. Clean the unit after each use to remove food residues. Wipe off the glass-ceramic plate and the plastic surface with a slightly damp cloth. Make sure that no water seeps into the device. Never use abrasive cleaners (i.e. metal pads) or oil-based liquids.
When not in use, store the cooktop in a dry place. Refer to product manual for additional cleaning and maintenance guidelines.
Plug into standard 110 outlet. Turn power on by pressing ON/OFF once. The power light indicators will turn red and the unit will start heating if a proper ferromagnetic pot is used.
There are two heat setting options – quick touch level selection (setting 1 through 10) and exact temperature settings (150 °F - 450 °F).
- To select the quick touch level heat setting, press the + / - key, until the desired heat setting is achieved. The default is set to level 5.
- To select temperature settings, press “temp” button and watch for the temperature light to turn red. The default setting is 270°F. To alter the default press the + / - key, until the desired heat setting is achieved. The temperature range is 150 °F - 450 °F and varies in 30 degree increments (150°, 180°, 210°, 240°, 270°, 300°, 330°, 360°, 390°, 420°, 450° F).
When it comes to power balance, not all Double Induction Cookers are made the same. True Induction has advanced power invariance technology which makes all the difference. Here’s why: Other dual induction units work in such a way that each burner uses half the power available from a standard outlet. Yet, with True Induction’s power invariance technology, each burner can use up to the full amount of power available from that same outlet, cooking your food up to twice as fast. When both burners are being used the unit senses the amount of power coming into the unit, keeps demand power at its max, all the while enabling it to stay balanced. Because of True Induction’s exclusive advanced technology when you use a double burner by True Induction you’ll never have to worry about tripping the breaker or reduced power output.
The maximum power of an individual burner level is at setting 10. But, when operating both burners their combined total is level 10, meaning that when operating the two burners at the same time they’ll self adjust levels accordingly. When you increase the power of one side, the power output of the other side will reduce automatically (i.e., one side is at 6, the other burner automatically reduces power to level 4 creating a total of max 10 setting).
True Induction makes life simpler with the timer setting option. It’s great to use when making foods that have specific timing instruction like rice or pasta. To use this timer feature press the “timer” button - the indicator light will turn red. Press the + / - key, until the desired heat setting is achieved. You will be able to select the operating time in increments of 5 minutes (and reductions of 1 minute). The timer is defaulted at 0 minutes and can reach up to 150 minutes total.
After cooking is complete, press the ON/OFF button to turn off the unit.
This unit goes in “standby mode” if cooking time has reached a total of 150 minutes. This is a built-in safety feature. The standby mode is recognized by an LED light showing “EE” followed by a sound. To restart cooking after “standby mode” just press ON/OFF button and it will restart.
