Power-sharing works by dividing the power between the two burners at 100/0, 50/50, 80/20, 70/30, etc. It also allows the unit to run more effectively on the standard 110V-120V outlet easily available in the kitchen.

What’s not so great
Not all cookwares are compatible with the true induction double burner cooktop. They have to be ferromagnetic in order for the induction process to take place.
It cannot be used with pots and pans which are not ferromagnetic, do not have a flat bottom, and that cookware that is not in the diameter range between 4-10 inches.
The power-sharing feature can be frustrating as the level and time duration of the dish changes. You will not be able to use the maximum level for both burners.
Once the timer feature is up, the cooktop goes into standby mode and does not shut down automatically.
The fan is a bit noisy when it is used over the countertop as a portable induction. The noise is not audible, however when it is inset into the countertop.
There is no child lock feature in the induction. This feature is very important to avoid the change of settings accidentally or by children.
The burner is fine for a small family. However, it is not that great for bulk cookings as there are only two burners that share power. Also, the maximum diameter of the pan can be 10 inches.
How True Induction TI-2B double burner cooktop works
Let’s now look a little bit into how to use this double burner induction cooktop.
Plug the power plug into a standard outlet. The power button will light up and the unit will sound to indicate on. The device will remain in standby mode, awaiting user direction.
Place ferromagnetic cookware before switching on the induction to avoid any stray radiations. The bottom of the diameter should be flat with a diameter of 4.5 inches to 10 inches.
Make sure the center of the cookware coincides with the center of the heating element.
To switch on
Press the power button on the control panel.
This will turn the cooktop on. The power display will blink and a beep will sound.
For selecting heat function ( power level)
Press the heat function key once. The pre-set power level “5” is the default selection as the device turns on. Use the +/- to change the heat level at any time from 1-10.
The maximum power level of an individual burner level is 10. But when operating both burners their combined total is level 10.
This means that when the two burners are operated at the same time, they will self adjust levels accordingly.
When you increase the power of one side, the power output of the other side will decrease automatically. (for example, you put power level 6 on one side, the power level of the other burner will automatically become level 4 creating a total max setting of level 10)
Using temperature setting
Press the temperature button once. Use the +/- button to change the temperature setting at any time. Setting ranges from 150F to 450F.
Exact temperature setting range is 150, 180, 210, 240, 270, 300, 330, 360, 390, 420 and 450 degree F).
If one side of the double burner is using the heat function and the other side uses the temperature settings, the maximum heat setting is “5”.
Using timer function
After setting heat or temperature mode, press the timer button once. The display will show the number “0”. Use the +/- keys to select the operating time in five-minute intervals (maximum 150 minutes) and reducing one minute.
The display will count down the duration in minutes. Once the time is up, the unit sounds and automatically goes into standby mode. To continue cooking, press the power button and heat button to restart.
During the timer operation, you can change the timer duration at any time with the arrow keys. The device’s built-in memory maintains the HEAT or TEMPERATURE setting previously entered.
The True induction cooktop is designed to automatically shut off after 150 minutes of use. This built-in auto shut off is a safety feature.
In case your food requires further cooking, the unit can easily be turned back on and reset to the desired setting.
Turning off unit
When you are finished cooking, simply press the Power button to turn off the machine.
Upon completion of cooking, the fan may remain on until the unit is cool.
Once the unit has cooled down, it is ready to be cleaned up with a damp cloth followed by a dry wipe. For more details read our article on cleaning the cooktop here.
