Sunpentown Induction Hobs

"Produce! Produce!
Were it but the pitifullest infintesimal fraction
of a product, produce it in God's name!
'Tis the utmost thou hast in thee: out with it, then."

—Thomas Carlyle

General Sunpentown Information

Sunpentown's main company, based in Taiwan, makes other and different units; those on this page are solely from Sunpentown USA. It is notable that the "Mr. Induction" tag applies both to units made by Sunpentown and to units from Spring, USA; the reason is that Spring distributes units actually made by Sunpentown (they don't disguise that—the manuals say right on their front page "Manufactured and serviced by Sunpentown International Inc. — Distributed by Spring, USA". So "Mr. Induction units from Spring are really by Sunpentown.


Sunpentown Induction-Unit Data

Sunpentown's current U.S. line comprises four units, two of which are the same unit with a minor trim variation. Sunpentown, possibly by being around early, has grabbed a large chunk of the "convenience" inexpensive countertop induction-plate market. While their units get good consumer comments, they are not the best bargains or quality out there, though perhaps the easiest to find.

As always in these listings, we give these standard general—

Residential-Use Units:

Important notes on these data:

  1. We have spent a lot of time hunting these data--often in several places for each individual unit--but we cannot and do not guarantee any datum to be correct (indeed, we often found conflicting data at different sources). Caveat emptor!

  2. For those units we offer for sale, the prices shown are never over a day old. For other items, the prices shown are the lowest we found with moderate but not fanatic searching; moreover, they are not updated very often and are only intended as a rough guide to comparative unit values in cost/power terms.

  3. Most "Features" are not terribly important, and are nearly standard among roughly similar units, regardless of brand name. If some "feature"--shown or omitted--is especially important to you, check on it, because we did not take great pains over the "Features" data.

  4. Dimensions given here are, as the makers themselves warn, only to be used as guidelines in planning--never do anything (such as cutting a countertop) till you have your actual unit to hand.

  5. A very important unit datum is the "MaxPower" value. Many units show individual-element powers that add up to impressive totals that the unit cannot really supply. That is not a defect or some form of cheating: it is "power sharing", a clever and useful feature; but, unless the maker is unusually open about data, one can easily be misled into believeing that the unit as a whole is more powerful than it is. Your dollars are buying cooking power, and you need to be well aware of just what you are paying for in actual cost/power terms for the unit as a whole.

  6. Similar to power sharing (though less flexible) is the "power boost" feature many units have on some or all of their elements. (That feature allows a "boosted" element to temporarily, for some short period--rarely specified, but typically 10 minutes or so--run at some set level well over its nominal power, to help with tasks like getting large pots of water to boiling.) As with true power sharing, if one is not careful, one can get an incorrect impression of the true total power capability of the unit as a whole, which, as we just said, is basically what your dollars are buying.

  5. Our criterion for including units here--as opposed to in the "residential use" section-- is the maker's labelling of the product on its web site or in its advertising; but be aware that makers use a lot of what lawyers call "commercial puffery", and the acid test is the exact wording of the warranty. If any unit's warranty excludes service in commercial settings, well, that speaks for itself. Regrettably, warranty forms are rarely available for inspection on-line for commercial units, so yet again: Caveat emptor!
