I was needing an electric hot plate to use for some projects around the barn, garage, etc. This little guy was definitely portable enough for that purpose.
I picked this item up at a local Meijer grocery store and it was only $20. I would recommend if for small projects that may require a small hot plate. It is suitable for cooking as well, but I don’t know that I would use it as a primary cooking surface. It would do good for pasta or sauces.
