Testimonials

"Using Cooktek's induction burners allows me not only the speed, precision and control I require, but with no ambient heat coming off the burners, the kitchen stays much cooler than it would with traditional burners firing."

Chef Grant Achatz

"We love our pair of MCD-3500 cooktop induction ranges. On our real busy days they are running full blast for about 8 hours. They are great not only for their sleek looks, but also because they help keep the kitchen heat to a minimum. They are reliable, and they cook our sugar mixture up faster than gas or electric could ever dream of. Thank you CookTek!"

"Cereality Cereal Bar and Café relies on the Cooktek MC-3500 to make our Quaker Oatmeal Signature recipes. For up to 15 hours a day, our three cafes use these fantastic induction burners to create individual orders of oatmeal for our customers in under 2 minutes. We've tried other burners, but they were not as fast or reliable as the Cooktek burners."

"We have gone exclusively with the Generation III Cooktops and we have no complaints. All sixteen of our kitchens are commercial and we use them in all of them, especially the pastry department...classes starting at 6am through 11pm. I use them in the café servery also, for the action stations, eggs to order, omelets, pasta, and sautéed items. The students like the responsiveness of the stoves and the non messy stations. We are most happy."

"The CookTek Cooktop is one of those amazing 21st-century kitchen appliances that is as wondrous as the microwave was in the 1980s."

"We need more of them. They're one of my favorite things because you can control the low temperatures and the kitchen itself doesn't get hot, which is so important for pastry. I don't miss gas at all."

"When we started using drop-in cooktops from another manufacturer in our grocery store, we had continuous problems with the glass tops breaking. But once we replaced them with CookTek's "built like a tank" cooktops, we haven't had any problems!"

"The CookTek induction cooktops allowed us to create a satellite cooking station that not only increased our production (we would not have been able to do this with any other traditional cooking method), but also generated additional sales by providing a more exciting and attractive presentation to customers who were previously buying from vending machines, and sources. We are replacing all of our old units with CookTek induction cooktops!"

"From an employee standpoint, the benefits of CookTek's cooktops by far outweigh the equipment cost because the cooktops produce no heat; even when we're doing mass volume for our sauté station, heat still isn't generated. This is phenomenal for employees because they can produce much more for longer periods of time. From an employer standpoint, I value their increased safety and productivity."

"As a consulting chef, I've had the opportunity to use many different brands of induction cooktops. With CookTek's induction cooktops, I've experienced time-tested reliability, safety, lightening speed heating capability and ease of operation (no training needed)...We will demand the CookTek level of service and reliability from now on with all of our remote cooking responsibilities. Thank you, CookTek!"

"CookTek's induction woks produce incredible heat in a very short amount of time. I was impressed with their performance from my very first use of one of the initial production models. The 3500-Watt unit will be a great addition to my own kitchen."

"CookTek cooktops are an excellent product and we're using them for applications that I hadn't even planned on when we initially purchased them. They're very energy-efficient, which I'm extremely interested in for my bottom-line profitability. I have plans to grow the business and open up other locations, and I look forward to designing them using CookTek's cooktops for my soup lines."

"Our workspace is at a premium and the portable CookTek gives us the ability to handle overflow whenever and wherever we need it. In a fine dining establishment, where the menu changes daily, having that flexibility is important."

"Simply put, the value of CookTek units in a kitchen is a no-brainer; they're a must-have. Some very important features to me are their safety and versatility -- we can take them from station-to-station in the test kitchen, and they follow us to demos and outside training appointments. Also, their precise temperature control is critical to our chefs and food scientists when blooming starch, for example, which occurs at very specific temperatures. I also value the fact that they are so much faster than gas stoves and offer extremely low maintenance."

COOKTEK® PIZZA THERMAL DELIVERY SYSTEM

"The CookTek Pizza Thermal Delivery System has entirely improved our operations since we first implemented the system in our stores 2 years ago; since that time, we've had just 2 complaints about pizzas not being hot--and they were due to driver mistakes, not because of the PTDS! Business is great, and the PTDS has a lot to do with our happy customers."

"We love CookTek's Pizza Thermal Delivery System and are excited about having a heated system that finally works! My drivers especially appreciate their easy handling and during peak dinner hours, we couldn't keep our customers happy without them. On top of the PTDSs themselves, CookTek's Customer Service is tops-- I've never had the type of response they provide compared with any other Domino's vendor. I'll definitely be purchasing more units."

"We've been using CookTek's Pizza Thermal Delivery System in several of our stores for about a year, and I have more confidence now in my drivers leaving stores with hot pizzas than I ever have. With the PTDS, we don't have any plugs, outlets or cords that go bad. We used a very fragile system in the past, which made us fearful every time we handled it; the PTDS's heated discs, however, are so durable we could take them out back and play Frisbee with them if we wanted to. Same with the pizza bags; they'd stand up to a game of football without a problem. I love the system."

"Yeah, right. Like I want my competition to know that CookTek's system gives me a huge advantage over them and allows me to stay ahead of the pack. I can't give my name or my pizza company's name, but I will tell you this: I haven't had any customer complaints about cold pizza since I started using the CookTek system and it outperforms any other heated delivery system on the market."
