In the case of induction stoves with two elements one has to determine what the output of each individual element is. Some induction stoves with two elements are rated 1800 Watt, which means that the total power output of the stove cannot exceed 1800 Watt – even if you are using both burners simultaneously. So, if the power setting on each burner is 1-10 and you have set the one on 6, the maximum setting on the other one is 4 (total 4 + 6 = 10). Although the induction stove price of double burner induction stoves with higher ratings, like the Summit SINC 2220 (total output of 3100 Watt, when both elements are in use), is higher, you have the luxury of using both elements on their individual maximums. The Summit SINC 2220 has one burner with 1800 Watt output and one with 1300 Watt output, which is very handy. This means that you can use both burners on maximum settings, as long as the total current usage of all the appliances simultaneously in use on the particular line does not exceed the rating of the circuit breaker. The Cooktek MCD-2502S 208-240V Double Burner Drop-In MagnaWave induction stove actually has 2500 Watts for each of the two hobs, which is very convenient, as long as the appropriate circuit breaker can handle the additional 20 Amperes needed for this appliance.
The following induction stoves with two cooking zones are rated 1800 Watts and the induction stove price is considerably lower than the ones with the higher ratings:
The Ramblewood double element induction stove, rated 3100 Watts, and the Cootek 5000 Watts, have higher energy output, so the induction stove price in each case is considerably higher than the ones with the lower ratings above.
