Features Of  Secura Portable Induction Cooktop 8100MC

 Design: look and feel

As you can see in the picture above Duxtop 8100 MC model has an elegant design, black color, and clean surface.This appliance comes with a plastic control panel flash with the burner and styled with a gold colored border around the control panel.The plastic Control Panel may be lead some problem because when you use a larger pan this will get hot and if it makes contact with the plastic control panel it can warp or melt the panel so you need to be very careful when positioning the pan.


This 8100MC induction cooker is very simple to use. It has few controls level which makes learning time for the user to be very short. It uses a control panel with digital touch which is well positioned and very intuitive.


Its surface is a perfect plane, even the control panel is at the same level as the burner but the control panel is made of plastic which can get melted if a hot pan it is slid over it.

The burner is covered by black ceramic glass which makes this portable induction cooktop look very decent. Also, this material is resistant to scratches and heat shock. But even though we need to take care when handling very heavy pans.

Heating Elements

This model has 1 burner and there are 2 circles on the surface which will guide where to place the pan or where to not.

One of the small circle has a 6-inch diameter and the other bigger circle has an 8-inch diameter. So the flat bottom of your cookware needs to have at least 4 inches otherwise, you will see an error coded with E0 and the cooktop will not going to work. “E0” code error will let you know that the cookware is not suitable and that you need to take off the pot or pan, wait until 30 seconds and try again with another one.


This appliance uses 110/120 volts electrical outlet having 15 amps of electricity – standard for all homes. Basically, we plug the cooker into any standard household outlet. 8100MC has 10 pre-set temperature settings and can also be used in either in Power mode or Temperature mode. The Temperature mode is good to be used when you need a particular temperature. When you turn on the mode they start heat at level 5, most of the buyers would find normal to start at a lower level and increase from there so this might take some getting used to – you just need to push the controls to change the power level to something higher or lower based on your desire

One day used to boil water to dissolve sugar to make wine, in a very small room and all it did was boil the water did not heat the room up like a conventional gas stove mostly do.

If you are searching a nice hassle-free Induction Cooktop, this induction cooktop is quite a very good investment for you without disturbing your budget. I found 625 customer reviews at the time of reviewing this appliance and they had awarded this induction cooktop 4.7 stars out of a possible 5 on average. The customer reviews are almost positive overall.  But there were also a few negative points that came in front of me. One customer also said that “ when the machine is plugged in the power panel flashes a row of horizontal dashes that look disconcertingly like an error code.” Even so, no another customer seems to have experienced the same difficulties, so perhaps it is not a very serious problem. So overall you can buy this product
