Can you cook french fries with this?

This is a single burner heating device. You can place almost any size pot or frying pan on it & will get good results. Therefore, if you place a frying pan on it, put cooking oil in it, & place the raw french fries in the pan, selecting medium to high heat (has temperature dial), you should get excellent french fries. You may want to cover the pan to prevent the smoke from filling the room.

Made in which country?

It is made in china.

What does it need to sit on to be safe?

I sat the unit on a cutting board, but the safeness i question is the control dial does not shut it off, it keeps heating until it’s unplugged.

Can it be used for water bath canning?

I ended up buying an induction stove top after this one because i wanted something more powerful. I use mine with a pressure cooker and this one took a lot longer to reach temperature. I don’t know much about bath canning but it seems to require a large amount of boiling water, which i don’t think this burner would have enough power to achieve.

How long is the cord

The cord is two feet long.

Con que voltaje funciona

110 volt

Auto shut off or not?

No. This burner does not have auto shut-off.

Do you have one that would work on 240v in new zealand

Mine is 110. Don’t know if it can be used with 240

Work with 2000w inverter?

Sure ^^

Will this work on 240v power

the standard voltage of a home electrical outlet in the united states is 120 volts, although the actual voltage supplied may be as low as 110 volts, due to line conditions. A few appliances, like stoves and electric dryers, may use 240 volts, which require special wiring and outlets.

The actual voltage supplied to a home from the electric utility is 240 volts, split across two ‘legs.’ most outlets are wired to one leg and a neutral leg. This provides half the total incoming voltage, or 120 volts. 240-volt outlets are wired to both of the incoming legs, providing the full voltage.’
as far as i know, this is made for 120 volts standard outlet.

Can it be used with an extension cord?

Can it be used with an extension cord ? That would be your choice but how safe would it be again it is up to you i have used mine with a cord but it is a heavy duty extension cord not one of them $1.00 walmart cords .

Does this burner work well for doing hot-knives?

This burner has a thermostat that turns it off quite often. Which means it won’t remain on long enough to boil one quart of water. It will boil two cups of water before it switches off. This product is only good for heating a 15 ounce can of food. It isn’t good for boiling large amounts of water or frying anything. Only buy this to heat small amounts of food.

Does it self destruct if left plugged in but set to off. Others have.

I have not experienced this with the product when i have accidentally left it plugged in before with burner turned down/off.

Se puede usar con comal quiero uno para poder hacer tortillas de masa a mano.. Mi estufa es de hornillas pero el fuego no es intenso a menos q tenga h

No es un poco lenta

Will this burner work with a portable power supply to heat a pot of water when the power goes out?

That depends on the amount of power your supply delivers. I believe you’ll need a supply that delivers at least 1200 watts continuously but 1500 watts would be better since it would absorb most spikes and transients,

Will this hot pan work in india?

No. It operates at a different voltage and would require a converter to work.

Does this shut off if on high and reaches the high temp?

Not that i am aware

Can i use an olla (clay pot) on this burner?

The proctor-silex burner is exactly as if you were cooking on an electric burner on your stovetop. So if you would put it on your stovetop and it doesn’t crack, i would assume you could do it on this single burner, since it is also electric. You can adjust the heat from low to high. Hope that helps in answering your question.

Could this be used with a canning pressure cooker?

I would not try this. The larger surface of the pans will make the element heat up enough to turn it off; or, as my former hotplate model from another company, cause it to burn out. This cooktop instruction booklet tells you how many minutes you can use it in a two-hour period, so i am pretty sure it would burn it out.

What’s the amperage on the burner

Appliance label states 1200 watts which at 120 volts = 10 amps

Handy and fume-free, cheap plating

I love cooking with this, although it took a little getting used to. Different from cooking with gas.

Although the heating element lifts for easy cleaning, the shiny area under the element has very cheap plating. Scrubbing removes the plating and then the shiny surface quickly rusts.

Quit working

I’ve had this just shy of 2 months and it no longer works!? I had started to notice it wasnt very good at keeping a steady temp but then today when i went to turn it on it wouldn’t heat up! Very disappointed i feel like this should be lasting longer than a month and change. Of course the return window is closed. I’ll order a different brand and toss this one. Buyer beware

Fast cooking

Excellent. Works exactly how it should

Great for a low cost switch from gas to electric

Great for single people to consider this duo burner and a toaster oven if they want to stop using their gas stove. You can find both for under $100. Also, folks should educate themselves as to how much electricity their household devices use.

Works well…when it works

This burner works really well, but doesn’t last long. I have bought this same burner for my mom in january, march, and july of this year. She uses the burner once a day to either boil water or steam veggies, and she is careful about keeping it clean with a damp sponge. She prefers this old-fashioned electric coil, but it’s getting expensive buying this every few months. It is nice that she can get same-day delivery when it breaks.

Works great!

This works great. I just wish it could be used for longer intervals. I would like to use it to slow simmer some foods. It’s great for frying, heating up or cooking foods for less than an hour.

Works ok

I’ve used this 3 times. It takes a while for it to heat up.

Lightweight but well constructed, compact, fast heating!

Surprisingly well-constructed, all metal, little hot plate. The small but mighty burner heats fast and evenly. Heating element lifts to clean the pan – a surprising feature at this price point. Very short cord for safety as the lightweight but powerful hot plate could be inadvertently moved causing burns or a fire.
Very pleased. Thank you salton and amazon.

Update. The unit is only heating on high for 10 or so seconds at a time. Sauteing is a very long drawn out process. If you are not in a hurry, it is a very nice hotplate.

Does the job at good price

Used this for a week while waiting for new oven delivery. Good price & easy to use. Very basic but does the job. Small enough to easily store away until needed again – should come in handy during the holiday cooking.

A little more power would be nice…

I purchased this to try boiling about 20 gallons of maple sap into syrup in a purely hobbyist endeavor. (this boiling had to be done outside. You can’t boil that much water in your house without drywall slumping off your walls or ceiling!)

this was probably not what the manufacturer had in mind… Still, i wanted to give it a try after spending a ridiculous amount of money on propane to do the same thing last year.

I really appreciated the metal construction. It held up well under a pot filled with 1.5 gallons of sap (about 13 pounds including the pot). I’m sure it could have held more weight than that without a problem. It heated up very quickly and stayed hot during an average 4 hour boiling session.

1200 watts is enough to boil a pot of sap (which starts out 98% water) but not boil it away very quickly. I can get a 1500 watt space heater, and my wife owns a 1875 watt hair dryer. Why can’t i find a hot plate with more power than 1200 watts?

It eventually took about 30 hours to turn 19 gallons of sap into steam. I thought i might very well kill this thing before i was done, but it still works (and looks!) like new.

Best current low priced buffet stove

Portable stove quality issues have always been a problem when people want to buy them based on price. Knowing the proctor silex other more expensive company hamilton beach they have a commercial products division i gave this stove a try.. The stove is only good for about a 4 quart pot that can sit on a 5.5 inch heat coil. There is a noticeable metal expansion contraction noise. To see old similar quality stove at an auction web site search for a ‘broilking buffet stove’ those are 1100 watts with infinite heat control and more expensive for used.

The light stays on

The light stays on at all times. Most let you know when it’s heating again and light goes off when it reaches desired temp. In a way, it’s good because it reminds me to unplug it, but i’m always looking at the light to see if it’s actively heating at that time. You do have to turn temp quite high to get good heat. Good buy.

Great little burner….wish cord was longer.

I ordered this to use as a burner for the dinner table to use for hot pots….how ever, the cord is very short. It will work fine on a counter, however, if you use for the dinner table, you’ll need to use an extension cord.

Other than that, it has legs for safety and heated up our pot well.
