  • The Max Burton 6400 is a compact and lightweight unit with a large, clear LCD display and an easy-to-clean surface. Both the timer and the digital controls are easy to operate, and 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.

    Induction ready pots and pans must be used on the unit will shut-off. It will not operate unless there is a cooking vessel on the cooktop.

    This single induction cooktop 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. It gets a full pot or kettle or water boiling in under sixty-seconds, making it a very fast cooktop indeed.

    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.

    Customer Service

    Max Burton is a brand of Aervoe Industries Inc. whose headquarters are in Gardnerville, NV and 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.
