Considerations when shopping

If you’re buying an electric hot plate, consider the length of the cord. Keep an eye out for the length of the cord that attaches it to electrics. You want to make sure the cable length is a good length, allowing you to insert it into any socket, no matter where you are. 

Look for hotplates that have a variety of heating settings. When cooking, you will be able to adjust and regulate the heating temperatures, as needed, depending on the situation. Temperature requirements for different foods vary - some dishes demand a low temperature, while others need a high temperature. Having variable hot plates is a great feature, so you can select the most appropriate heating temperature for your culinary needs. There will be no overcooking or undercooking of the food.

Check the dimensions. Hotplates are available in a variety of sizes, so make sure you’re getting a size suitable for your needs and family size. Essentially, the type and quantity of cooking you'll be doing, as well as the size of your kitchen, will define how big your hot plate should be.
