Electrical double stove top with 1200 watts of power each, two ceramic hobs with 18 cm diameter
Scratch-resistant crystal glass plate and high-quality infrared heating element for long life
Infinitely adjustable temperature up to max. 550 ° C
The Klarstein Captain Cook² is a hardworking electric hotplate with two 18cm ceramic hobs for modern garden sheds, motor homes and for live cooking applications in a catering setting.
A whopping 2400 watts of power - 1200 watts per hob - guarantee fast heating, reaching a temperature of 300° C in just 30 seconds. The temperature may adjusted as necessary via the adjustable rotary knob on the front, so that water baths, stews and braised meals can be kept at a constant temperature.
Designed for cookware between 18-20cm in size, the ceramic hob is sufficiently large to serve common pot and pan sizes. Whether you use cookware made from metal, glass or ceramic, Captain Cook² brings them all to a boil.
The halogen lamp beneath the scratch-resistant crystallite glass plate allows for the quick and even heating of different cookware. The constant cooking temperature - at its lowest level around 180° C - allows you to keep food warm without having to boil it again to reheat, which may result in the loss of savoury flavours. The direct heat transfer ensures fast and energy-saving cooking.
The elegant design makes the double hob an unobtrusive kitchen appliance, while its brushed stainless steel housing reduces cleaning time to a minimum. Due to its moderate dimensions and flat design, the Klarstein Captain Cook² is excellent for installation in kitchens and kitchenettes of all sizes and is also a welcome chef in allotments and motorhomes. Whether as a companion plate for grilling or as a practical starter appliance for student or single households, the Captain Cook² double electric hob is an outstanding device.

Having no cooker at the moment I was getting tired of trying to cook with only a microwave, so I was very happy to receive this double hotplate. I've used this type of appliance before, but this one is a different animal entirely. No unresponsive cast iron plates which cycle up and down between hot and warm endlessly, but never get really hot enough for a proper boil - this is a proper piece of kit and it would grace any kitchen, whether on its own for a small bedsit or kitchenette, or in addition to the main hob for larger scale catering. It would also be ideal for demonstrations or classes too.
At first look its a stylish shiny red affair with black glass circular hotplates. When you use the smooth action turn knob to switch on and adjust the heat, the element under the glass glows red and an indicator light on the front lights up. The instructiosn recommend using pans 18-20cm but I tried a smaller one and it heated up half a pan of cold water to boiling in double quick time. Despite the "portable" nature of the applicance there's no compromise on performance or looks.
Later I put it to the test making a pan of pasta sauce and the pasta to go with it. It was easy to use and cleaned up with a quick wipe. And I was very happy to eat proper food for the first time in weeks!.
When I have my new kitchen installed I will keep this little hob for Christmas and other parties; it will sit "front to back" on the worktop easily so takes up very little space but adds a very welcome 2 extra pan spaces to my kitchen. It will store neatly in the box it was delivered in if I need to put it away, and could easily be taken to anywhere it was needed as long as a 13A socket was within reach.
Last, the red colour is lovely, I chose it because it was a bit different and it really cheers up my kitchen.
