    Portable Induction Cooktop

    The portable induction cooktop allows you to ‘try before you buy’, with a portable induction cooktop.


    Induction cooking requires cookware with a ferrous (iron) bottom to conduct heat. You can check if your cookware can be used on an induction cooktop by seeing if a magnet sticks to the base.


    Instructions for how to use the portable induction cooktop are provided for additional support and reference.
