Cook-tops: gas and/or Induction? in Kitchen Consumer Posted July 9, 2015 Some of the Max Burton plug in units have a temperature setting. I don't know how accurate it is though. (You can choose temperature or power mode.) Here's the link to the induction site review of the countertop units: http://theinductionsite.com/countertop-induction.php And a link to some more information about Max Burton units: http://theinductionsite.com/induction-makers/maxburton-induction-hobs.php (The website has a lot of helpful information on it too.) Jaynep.s. Yes, in terms of the question about the cast iron plug in, mine is similar but the brand I have is Broil King.
