We have one. They are nice to have for just a couple of people, but trying to cook for a family of 5 is to slow. You have to use a special pan for it to work. They do work as advertised but just a little slow for me.

I can't see it from the link, so I guess the deal expired. But we have one from Costco that we use at home frequently, and for some reason it does not work in the trailer. My guess was that somehow it doesn't work with 30 amp service, although to be quite honest I haven't the faintest idea what that makes sense.

It would limit you to having to stay in RV parks all the time.. and even with 50 amp service you might find your self running out of power while cooking..

I always thought those might be a good deal to use. Howver for us and all of our off-road camping probably NOT a good idea.

We cook mostly off the grill outside and use inside stove for heating water to wash dishes and wash up with. Only power up the hot water heater if we really really need it hehe...

All part of camping off the power grid routines for us.

We have the one from Costco also and I use it often when camping. I've found that most campsites have a separate 20 amp receptacle so I run a 25' cord from that and use the induction cooktop when making pasta. It gets a pot boiling very quickly. If you hold a magnet to the bottom of the pot and it sticks, that pot will work with the cooktop.
