I have spent months lurking here on GW, and had settled on a 36" CC rangetop. Then I started reading about MUA and got cold feet. Now I'm considering induction. I wanted to get a feel for how induction works before committing to it, so I ordered a standalone induction cooktop from Amazon (single burner, 1800 watt max, made by Duxtop).
People here rave about how quickly you can boil water on induction, so I put my new burner to the test. It usually takes me about 20 minutes to boil a pot of water for pasta on my gas range, and I was excited to see what induction could do. So I put the pot on at the highest setting, and waited. And waited. 20 minutes to boil! I realize that this is not a controlled experiment, but I wonder if I'm doing something wrong? Is the burner underpowered? I'm using an all-clad pot; I got some pretty bad high-pitched noise when I turned it up to the max setting. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
