Other than a temperature setting gap which is slightly too large for some (25 degree increments), and an annoyingly loud warning tone which alerts you when cookware has been lifted from the surface, this product from Max Burton is free from any issues which severely detract from its value.
When unpacking your new Max Burton 6400 Digital Induction Cooktop the quality is clear. From the sleek, lightweight design with its easy-to-clean surface, to the lightweight engineering and large, clear LCD display, this is a cooktop that is hard to fault. Both the timer and the digital controls could not be easier to use, while also being placed in such a way that they will not be spilled on while cooking.
The digital timer can be set to a maximum of 180-minutes (in one-minute increments). When the time expires, the unit shuts down. This cooker will also shut-off if the cookware is not induction compatible or if there is no pot or pan on the cooktop.
The Max Burton 6400 offers a wide range of temperature and power settings. It reaches any given temperature within a very short time frame and does a great job of holding that temperature. While the first power setting is great for slow cooking, this unit also excels at high temperatures. Another attribute is that it drops to a lower heat setting almost instantly, mainly thanks to the fan which runs from the moment the unit it switched on. It gets a full pot or kettle or water boiling in under sixty-seconds, making it a very fast cooktop indeed.
Max Burton is a brand of Aervoe Industries Inc. whose headquarters are in Gardnerville, NV and are said to have friendly, attentive customer service. This reviewer found this to be true when a call was placed to the technical support department. The query was whether the machine shuts off after three hours if the timer is not being used. A product manager stated it did and was designed that way for safety reasons. He was extremely nice and willing to answer any other questions. It is unusual nowadays to be able to talk to someone on the phone in the technical support department in the United States since more and more companies are outsourcing these positions to other countries or only provide email support, if that. Answers to most of questions about the unit can be found in the detailed and well-organized manual available online.
This product contains the ETL mark which proves it is compliant with North American Safety standards. It also complies with FCC Part 18 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
Unlike most other induction cooktop manufacturers, Max Burton markets an induction disk that can be used in conjunction with non-induction cookware as well as magnetic varieties. It comes at a reasonable cost and certainly opens up possibilities. However, for the best heat distribution and fastest heating times, it is better to use pots and pans that are induction ready.
As soon as this cooktop is switched on, the cooling fan begins to run. While this may seem off-putting, it is roughly half the volume of an average entry-level microwave oven. It is comparable to the hum of an entry-level desktop computer’s power supply fan, making it one of the quietest induction cooktops around. The only time that it makes a louder sound is when cooking at very high temperatures and even then, the tone is a barely audible high-pitched sound to most adults. The fan may continue for run up to two minutes after the unit has been switched off.
A safety feature of many induction burners is that they beep about a minute after the cookware is lifted from the surface. However, this unit alerts you a few seconds after it senses there is no cooking vessel on the cooktop. Some people might find this annoying while others are appreciative of the immediate warning.
A big advantage of The Max Burton 6400 is that it larger than most single-plate induction cooktops, although still lightweight and small enough to store in a drawer.
This quiet, versatile, and well-designed product is easy to learn how to use. It is also portable enough to be used almost anywhere and can be stored easily. If you are looking for a quality product, variable temperature and power settings and an easily cleaned cooking surface, then look no further than the Max Burton 6400 Digital Choice Induction Cooktop. It is aesthetically pleasing, durable and will hold its appearance well, even with regular use. As an added benefit, the customer service and technical support of Aervoe Industries Inc., (the manufacturer of Max Burton products) is outstanding.
