Bought for "living room camping" while undergoing kitchen renovation. As with all coils, pot should fit burner to maximize heat, so at 6", small pots work best on this burner. That said, it works like a charm! For the money, I'm quite pleased.
When we get together as a church or extended family, we all like to bring our favorite foods and so many of them need to be warmed for flavor and ssafety's sake. An extra burner or two can save the day.
