Does anyone use a portable induction burner?

We had been using a portable single induction unit to save on propane. We just store it on top of our counter....that way we can leave our removable countertop on the 3-burner propane cooktop. We loved the ease of using it. But we burned it up, or it quit working after only 1 season. I'm looking at reviews of new ones, and none of them get very good reviews. Does anyone use one, and if so would you recommend the brand you have?

We bought a Max Burton 1800 watt induction cooktop after our visit to the 2014 rally, and have been using it every since. During our stays in AZ during the winter, we use it nearly every day. I've only used the propane stovetop only a couple of times. They're still for sale on Amazon.

We don't even have a Propane Stove, we have a Two Burner Induction Cook Top, brand name True Induction. Is was an option when we ordered out '16 39MB.

Jim & Mary.....Weird that I was searching on Amazon and didn't see that brand. I'll search for it specifically and try to find it. Thanks so much!

We do tend to go off the grid quite a bit, so we don't always have electricity. So we'll need to keep the regular burners, but we don't want to use them any more than we have to. No need to pay for propane when we're hooked up to electricity. :-)

Induction Burner

I bought one made by Faberware over three years ago. It was clearance for $29. Looked on Amazon and was shocked to see the same one for $114. I store it in the oven and have had no issues with it. Having stated that, I would not pay $114 for it LOL!

A word of caution , the Burton unit is designed to be used on a 20 amp rated circuit. Not every oulett in the RV is rated at 20 amps. I was really considering it then I found my kitchen island is on a 15 amp breaker. 1800W = 15 amps , at some point the breakers isn't going to like 100% loaded they are only designed for 80% continuous loads. I end up getting a 1300 watt induction hot plate , Kohls and Amazon has it.

Cooking

About all I do on theinside stove these days is boil water and I rarely need that. I'm using a two burner "Camp Chef" just outside the door for anything I am not putting on the grill. A standard BBQ bottle of propane can last a year and I am almost full time. I probably turn it on 2-3 times a week.

We had the 2fer deal of the "as seen on tv" PIC Gold units, they work great, have used them now for about 4 years & still working. From the time we bought them til we sold the RW, still use them in the house, the only time we uncovered the gas cooktop was to clean under the covers. DW could plug one in on each end of the island & cook away, never tripped a breaker.
