Thinkgeek has the right idea. Instead of a whole big range with four induction cooktops. What about just one? This 1800W induction cooktop will work with any ferrous-based pots and is completely safe for a small room as it only gets hot when there’s a pan on top. It has 10 power levels, LED display, overheat sensor and you can move it wherever you like. Only works with 110 Volts though. US$99.99 from the Geeks.
… it’s portable, so take it wherever you can get 110v power! Need a cooktop for your tailgate? As long as you have an inverter, you’re good! Boiling corn on the cob for your outdoor BBQ? No problem, just bring an extension cord! Want to saute up some scallops at your desk? Whatever, just make sure your cubemates aren’t allergic to shellfish, first.
