Best Portable Induction Cooker Malaysia

1. Rubine Electric Ceramic Induction Cooker RIH-ENSO-BL

Users find that it cooks fast. You can fry an egg within minutes! It’s simple to use and the round profile is actually kind of cute.

Verdict:

This induction stove by Rubine is under RM100 (it’s not a true induction stove) and has similar settings to what you see in more expensive models.

Note: It will not work and display an error (E0) if the pot you use is non-ferrous (i.e. without iron)!

Verdict:

Best Built In Induction Cooker Malaysia

The limitation of a portable induction cooker is that you can’t multitask!

So we’ve included these built-in options for that purpose. And for bigger households!

6. Faber Built-in Induction Cooker FIC 2020 S

This is the cheapest built-in cooker on the list because it’s only got 1 hob. And with limited features compared to the rest!

Lazada users don’t have any bad to say about this stove by Faber! But it is also not as popular as other induction stoves in this list!

Verdict:

It’ll fit a studio apartment, mobile home, cabin, etc comfortably. But at this price, we would rather get a portable stove with a longer warranty (like the Electrolux Portable Induction Cooker ETD42SKA)!

Faber Built-in Induction Cooker FIC 2020 S
  • Type: Built-in
  • No Of Hob: Single
  • Rated Power: 2,000W
  • Surface Material: n/a
  • Dimensions: 30.2 x 37.0 cm

7. HETCH 2-In-1 Induction + Halogen Cooker HIC-1702-HC

Halogen cookers use a halogen lamp as a heating element. They consume more energy but cook fast. And HETCH combines the pros of having 2 different technologies available in this one stove!

Impressive quality for the price –users enjoy using both hobs to accommodate different cookware! Many reviews say the fan is loud.

Verdict:

Fantastic if you have an assortment of cookware that are not magnetic (i.e. not compatible with an induction stove! Furthermore, you have the option to use it as a built-in or free standing stove!

Again, you can use all your various cookware with this stove by SENZ SZ-RI3200i 2-In-1 Smart Induction & Ceramic Cooker Hob.

A user-friendly stove. Users note that both sides work well even if the ceramic hob is not nearly as powerful as the induction hob! Especially if you use them both at the same time!

Verdict:

Another affordable option for a dual-tech stove. Fine for the average cook.

Note: You can also leave this stove free standing on your counter top, if you prefer!

9. Rinnai Induction Hob RB-7013H-CB

This induction stove has 3 hobs on a patented glass-ceramic surface meant to withstand high heat (up to 700°C)! There is a booster function to increase the power for a selected hob from the touch panel.

Verdict:

You would expect there to be an oven at that price, but the Rinnai Induction Hob RB-7013H-CB does not have one!

How Do Induction Stoves Work?

The exact function is a less straightforward than that of a gas stove!

Electromagnetic induction or induction is the key term here:

An induction stove has a coil of metal inside that is electronically controlled. To generate a changing magnetic field which then produces heat. Though not directly!

When you turn on an induction stove:

  1. The coil of metal will have electric AC current passing through it.
  2. This constantly changing currentproduces a changing magnetic field around the coil.
  3. And with a ferrous(i.e. contains iron) pot on top, the magnetic field will generate its own electric eddy currents inside the pot.
  4. These currents run around the internal crystal structure of the metal, releasing heat and cooking your food as it does so!

So only the pot heats up and not the entire cook top surface (i.e. unlike ceramic stoves)!

If you still find it hard to visualize how it works, there’s a nice summary and diagram here.

How To Choose An Induction Cooker

1. Size

Like to multi-task?

Then choose an induction stove that has at least 2 induction zones.

There can be up to 5 induction zones in some models! And then, some that just have 1 large induction zone so you can place multiple pots anywhere on top!

And if you have a small budget and live alone or just don’t cook that often:

Then, you can get a single-zone induction cooker!

2. Types Of Induction Cooktops

Regardless whether your stove is portable, freestanding or built-in, it will need a power outlet nearby.

  1. Built-in – Normally with 2 to 3 cooking zones. Fixed to your kitchen countertop. Might have to cut out part of the counter to fit the stove in nicely.
  2. Portable – Single cooking zone. Can be moved around anywhere. Affordable.
  3. Freestanding – No messy counter installation required. May include an oven.

3. Kitchen Size

As with choosing a cooker hood, it’s important to measure out the place you intend to put the induction cooker!

Particularly if you get a built-in model for your kitchen!

4. Control Panel

There should be controls for power and temperature. Sometimes, there are preset settings too. These should be at the side of the stove away from where the pots are going to be!

Both touch-sensitive and mechanical knobs are available in the Malaysian market today.

5. Portable Or Built-in?

Think about your lifestyle – do you move around a lot? Is the stove for your work place? Or do you live in a shared hostel situation?

Then it makes sense to buy a portable induction cooker!

6. Edgeless

While these look really great and are a breeze to clean up:

They are prone to damage!

7. Useful Features

  • Timer
  • Automatic power-off
  • Child lock
  • Electrical consumption monitor and display
  • Safety sensors (e.g. to detect an empty pot on the stove)
  • Overflow control
  • Long warranty

8. Your Existing Cookware (Pot Or Pans For An Induction Cooker)

How do you know if your current cookware is compatible with an induction stove?

If a magnet can stick to your pot or nonstick pan, you’re usually good to go!

Thus, cookingware made of copper, ceramic, aluminum or glass won’t work on induction cookers!
