    Thanks Davek8282 I didn’t know that. Looks like I’m gonna go with the Duxtop then. It did get very good reviews. And deep frying is one thing I’m looking for, along with doing Blackened Ribeyes, where I need to get a good hot sear.

    Panhead John I have one of these that I use camping, it has no where near the power of my portable induction. I don't think those small butane bottles will provide the power you are looking for to deep fry. You would have to step up to at least a 10,000 BTU propane and something more powerful would be way better.

    Thanks! I stumbled on this while looking around. I didn’t know they made em this small and with a small butane bottle. I was picturing the gas burners with propane. This just might work for me though.

    That one looks pretty slick. It might be better than mine. I would have to pull them out to tell you about them and they're at the cabin so I can't. BTW, I order a case of butane at a time from Amazon to save money on fuel.

    Attjack What’s your thoughts on something like this little butane model? You mentioned you have several gas burners? What do you have that you like best?

    I use a 1800 watt Waring portable induction cooktop on my lanai. I don't deep-fry so I can't speak to that but I have plenty of heat for pan searing.

    Panhead John I found the original post that made me decide on the Duxtop. Towards the bottom there is a nice little chart comparing electric wattage to BTU from gas. may help you with your decision.

    PS I found this post by searching the forum for Duxtop and then followed a post by spinnaker.

    I think I need to message them and tell them to cease and desist using my name in their product.

    Thanks Rick! I don’t mind spending a little more for something that’ll do the job. I’ll check em out.

    You might also want to look at the professional stuff, some of which runs on 120 and is meant for catering etc (so, out of kitchen)

    Panhead John - I use a Lodge CI DO about the same size. Just looked at my Duxtop and it was made in 2013. Maybe they have improved since I bought mine??

    I usually don’t fry anything, the only thing I did fry with it was puffy taco shells and it did fine. Only searing I tried smoked up the whole house. Key is probably to use a small pan though since induction ranges run on 220 over the 110 this runs on so they have a lot more power than the countertop burners for a big 12” cast iron. If you use a little 8” skillet it would probably do well. In the end I guess I’m saying I haven’t tested it’s power.

    Induction is pretty slick. We switched out range to induction. As long as a magnet will stick to it, they are fabulous for control, including deep frying.

    Thanks glitchy Appreciate your response. I’m gonna check it out tonight. But, how does it do for deep frying? it’ll only be for small amounts for me, and also, have you seared steaks or chops on it? How does it do for that? I’ve got a flattop electric stove also, if it can do just as well as a stove top I’m happy.

    We’ve had this one for 2 years. Often gets used 2-3 times a week because it boils water faster, adjusts quicker, etc. than our smooth-top range. It nothing special, but it works.

    I bought it purely to try out induction for when we do need to replace the range. We'll be going with induction.
