The Waring Pro Countertop Double Burner is a great choice to give you an extra cooking surface in your kitchen. The double-burner hot plate comes in handy to help cater to a crowd. The flat surface and brushed stainless steel housing will go along with modern, or practically any decor.
The Waring Pro DB60 has a larger burner plate that features 1,300 watts of power and a small burner plate that has 500 watts for quick heating. The larger burner, with a diameter of about 7 inches, is best used for quick cooking or simply boiling some water. The small burner, with a roughly 6-inch diameter, is suited for simmering or warming. Both plates are cast-iron, and the electric hot plates feature separate adjustable thermostats and indicator lights. The two burner plates can be used at the same time.
Weighing in just over 12 pounds, this dual burner hot plate isn't the most portable, but its heavy-duty construction makes it possible to take it out of the house and you don't have to worry about it getting beat up. It measures 19.5 x 11.5 x 4 inches, so it doesn't take up too much counter space. The hot plate burner has a power cord that is a little more than 35 inches long, so you shouldn't have trouble reaching a power outlet. It also has nonslip rubber feet, making it sturdy.
