Max Burton put out an interesting portable cooktop with the 1800 watt Max-Matic Deluxe. It has one of the catchier monikers on our list and a very solid set of features which has made it a fan favorite year after year.
We’re going to start with the tech specs on this one. The Max Burton 6200 has a wide temperature range with 10 settings from Low to High. The three power levels are considered low heat from 140 to 210 degrees while the high end is eight through ten at 390 to 450 degrees. The user manual shows the temperatures are staggered in 30 to 40-degree increments, with the default set to 180.
As you’d expect, the only heat you’ll feel from the Maxi-Matic will be from the pot itself along with a bit of warm exhaust from the fan. Consumers found the latter to be relatively quiet, so it’s not something that will annoy you while you cook provided you’re using the right cookware.
This cooktop has four push button controls which work well, but aren’t necessarily ideal if you’re looking for something that can stand the test of time. It’s safe to say the designers of the 6200 wanted their cooker to be easy to use, and they accomplished this although you’re going to miss out on features found on similar models in this class. There’s no child lock, but there are several features which help make this one safe in the kitchen.
You’ll get not one, but two overheating sensors on this unit – one for the inside and one for the cooktop. There’s also a voltage sensor along with a series of error codes to help show you the way if things are amiss. Last but not least is a cookware detection sensor which lets you know if your old pots or pans are compatible with your new cooker. The 180 timer isn’t a safety feature, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the ability to set it in 1-minute increments.
This is one of the older models on our list, but consumers are just as happy with it today as they were when it was first released. We wish there was a dedicated lock button or a few more features, but appreciate how well the Maxi-Matic Deluxe is made – and those 10 power levels.
