Unlike other cookers that are expensively equipped with excessive and bewildering functions, Nesco PIC-14 Portable Induction Cooktop is made with a philosophy of simplicity and stability. There are 5 reliable power settings: melt/warm, simmer, boil, fry and sear. You can select one of them just by pressing the up and down buttons. Cooking has been never so easy when using PIC-14.

Nesco’s portable induction stove is energy efficient. It cooks food with induction heat which is generated within induction cookware rather than flames of gas or electric hot-plate burner. Induction cooking is also much safer than gas or traditional electric stoves. No open flames take place during cooking. The induction burner itself keeps cool during cooking. Thus you can also save electric bill for air-conditioning during summer.
