Are electric countertop stoves worth it?

Are electric countertop stoves worth it? The stove in my apartment has been shut off by the gas company for months due to a leak in the stove and my landlord is refusing to fix it. Getting really tired of eating microwave or airfried meals

    I have a conduction one and it heats things extremely quickly. It's annoying that it doesn't work on all my pans though.

      Overall does it work decently otherwise outside of the pan issue? Any other problems with it?

        No other problems, it feels more powerful than my electric stove. There's definitely less heat wasted as it's all going into the pot rather than being radiated outwards into my kitchen. My future stove will be conduction.

      oh, my mistake, it's induction, not conduction.

      >conduction
      So basically just an ordinary hotplate? You should really consider investing in a good induction top, will heat a lot faster and will have almost instant temperature control.

      I do have legal recourse but I am not able to afford a lawyer and they know that. Im in a ghetto and honestly the landlord knows every single apartment is a roach infested shithole but no one can do anything about it since we’re all broke and literally cant go anywhere else.
      Also my landlord is some Chinese company not israelites.

            Its been deemed safe since the gas line directly to my stove has been shut off

        Legal aid clinics are free and effective. People who just take unfair treatment are responsible for the abuse of others too. You owe the others to step up.

          I know my roommate tried contacting a legal aid clinic over this and the roaches and mold but it basically led nowhere when she found out it wasn’t actually free

        US? If you tell me your state I might be able to help you out. The little countertop induction and conduction units work fine. Temperature control is shit on the conduction ones, but better than nothing.

    Do you not have laws and agreements in your land? The landlord would be in extremely hot shit if my main method of cooking was shut off and no other replacement was offered if he refuses to fix the issue causing the shut off. You are renting(?) an apartment with that shit included. Imagine if landlords could just damage/neglect cookware in their apartments so they can't be used and still rent it out to people while expecting them to get their own replacements. Lmao.

    Buy what's literally in your picture. The house I bought didn't have a stove and my kitchen is moronic and there's not really a good place for a full size stove. I've been using this for 3 years and it's fine. Basically the same as an electric stove. Highly recommend.

    If you get a twin ceramic and try to use both plates at once, expect to have occasional issues when they both cycle on at the same time. They won't heat up at the same rate as when only one is on, which can mess up your timing.

    I've owned two and I believe they're from that same company. Both failed the same way. The connector that delivers the current to the coils deteriorates and then crumbles away very quickly.

      I don't know why you would see that and not just solder the connection.

        I think I did try that on the first one. it ate up everything and crumbled it away to ash.

        Still, this is not something anyone should have to do after a few uses of a product. I still have the second one but I can already hear that shit rattling around in it.

        Dude, shit gets way past solder melting point.
        There is a reason why its a crimp from the factory.

        But yes, induction is way better.

        >Are electric countertop stoves worth it?
        Yes, but get induction, or glass ceramic one.
        Don't get pancake ones, they are shit, just like coil ones.

        Oh right, I forgot to mention. Not all pans work with induction. Check what you have before you buy induction. Use magnet, if it sticks to bottom (sticks well) - it would work.
        If your pans don't work, try getting glass ceramic.

    Been cooking for a while and I just don't trust it. Looks like a dj mixer table. I prefer the $25 ones that have a bright red coil so I know it's on. Of course flame is superior but If I had to stay in a hotel for a long period then I would want the cheap red coil one to cook meals. Has the same power of a stove. Why spend more than $20 on cheap portable crap?
