Dude, you may be a struggling student, but there’s no need to slum it in the culinary department with one of these on your dorm desk. The Fissler CookStar is a somewhat state of the art induction hob which can roast your Ramens quicker than you can say hot-dog party. German engineering at its finest methinks. $299.00.
German-engineered induction cooking also features instant heat, via a dramatic, frameless-ceramic glass top that quickly wipes clean. And because induction cooking heats the pan only, the top never feels hot to the touch. Includes 9 power levels, a silent fan, a “Keep Warm” button for use in the dining room as a warming tray — even a “Boost” button to further speed up already-fast cooking. And yes, at 1500 watts, the Bavarian Chef Cook Top will literally boil a large pot of water in under a minute!
