Induction cookstops are more energy efficient that regular and gas stovetops as well heat up faster. This certainly applies to Aobosi FS-IRC108-1800 that manages to heat up fast. It cooks food well and there are no inherent issues with how it works/performs.
There’s a downside to induction cooktops though – they are not compatible with all cookware. Due to how induction heating works Aobosi FS-IRC108-1800 will only work with cookware that has megnetic bottom like cast iron, enameled steel or magnetic stainless steel.

The 10 preset options you get are 140, 176, 212, 248, 284, 320, 356, 392, 428 and 464°F.
