Vayepro HP202-D16 does take a while to heat up – noticably longer than it takes for a regular stovetop however with some patience it will get there. Both burners get hot enough to boil a pot of water. Other than the fact it takes a bit longer to heat up it cooks just fine.
There is one interesting nuance to the burners though. For some reason the smaller one runs a bit hotter than the big one which is something you have to keep in mind.
It’s hard to say what’s the reason behind this. Perhaps your first instinct says it’s probably because smaller burner has a higher power supply per square inch but if manufacturer data is accurate then quick calculation shows that the opposite is true – the larger burner has 6.94 watts per square inch whereas the smaller one – 6.4 watts per square inch.
