When it comes to choosing a cooktop, I guess we are all choosy because of the fact that there are many choices available. I had the same experience while hunting for my cooktop months back. Also, we have our own cooking styles and cooking requirements. We want and need a cooktop that we can rely on anytime. People who cook often or daily, or prepare food, will know how a good cooktop can make their kitchen chores a lot easier. More importantly, to cook any kind of food and to deliver good cooking results, you will need a cooktop with good modern features.
Of the different types of cooktop available in the market today, electric cooktop is also one that you can rely on. Electric cooktops are generally cheaper than gas cooktop and electric induction cooktop, making it the No. 1 choice for those who are on budget. Easy installation process and easy maintenance are also some of the reasons why electric cooktop is still in great demand.
I was initially indecisive about choosing electric cooktop because I wanted an Induction cooktop. But then again, I learnt that it can be tricky to own induction cooktop because it support only induction ready cookware.

That’s because 30 and 30 inch induction cooktop can be very expensive and you may never like induction cooking in the first place.
As hinted earlier, choosing which one to go for is very confusing. Here is a simple tip that will help you find your cooktop easily without wasting much time. First thing, decide on which one to go for—gas, electric, or induction cooktop. After deciding on that, you have to keep in mind how you will be using it or things like the kind of food that you would be cooking. You can also make your choice accordingly as there are cooktops that has one burner, two burners and even five burners.
Waring DB60- Efficient and Reliable
After reading many Electric and Induction cooktop reviews and their features, I finally decided on Waring DB60 Electric cooktop as I thought it will meet all my cooking requirements. And yes, it does and every single time I use it, I always thought I made the right choice. It is a 2 burner electric cooktop that practically does all the cooking in my kitchen. I decided on two burners for many reasons. With two burners, I can cook or prepare two different dishes at the same time, which also saves my time. It features one burner of 1300 watt and a smaller plate of 500 watt. Two burner is always better than one as it offers you one extra burner and it is of the right size (not too big and not so heavy). Two burners do not add that much extra weight and so portability is not an issue. I can shift my cooking place and cook where I want, provided there is a power outlet. Cooktops with only one burner can prolong your cooking time as you have to cook one at a time; and cooktops with 4 or 5 burners are normally large in size that it may challenge the portability of the unit. Mentioned above are the reasons why I picked a 2 burner cooktop.
More About DB60 Electric Cooktop
This cooktop has a dimension of 19.5 x 11.5 x 4 inches and it weighs 9 pounds. I like the fact that it features a non-slip rubber feet for firm setting. You will find two light indicators at the front panel that indicates whether you are in the ‘on’ and ‘ready to cook’ mode. I find the light indicator very helpful while cooking. The two burners can be adjusted or controlled separately, and both burners give you five different temperature settings. With the 5 temperature settings, you can possibly cook any kind of food. The larger plate with the higher watt can perform any major cooking while the smaller plate can accommodate any side dishes that require less cooking time.
If you prefer electric stove or cooktop and look forward to cooking in style and comfort, Waring DB60 is a recommendable model. It is energy efficient, maintenance is easy, and yes, comparing the price and the performance it delivers, this model is good value for money.
