Two burner electric cooktops are versatile in nature, offering you multiple cooking options. From providing you warm meals when camping, additional cooking space during large family dinners, and even temporary kitchen aid when moving into a new home that does not have all the kitchen luxuries you want, electric cooktops have endless possibilities for their usage. While an electric cooktop will never outsmart a Michelin Star restaurant’s gas burner stove top, it will warm your soup and cook your chicken strips well and through.
If you are in the market for a new 2 burner electric cooktop as a first time buyer or simply wanting to replace your current one, it may be difficult to choose the best option for you. While everyone’s cooking needs vary, one thing is consistent: certain dishes require a stovetop, whether a built-in until or a versatile electric cooktop.
In this detailed report, we will outline what sets a 2 burner electric cooktop apart from the rest. Additionally, we have selected three specific electric cooktops, reviewed their individual aspects, and chose an overall winner.
What Makes a Good Electric Cooktop?
When searching for a new electric cooktop, there are several factors you must consider for each product you view. From how hot the cooktop can get to how easily it is stored, there are many variables in deciding which cooktop is right for you. Below, you will find our designated character we will measure for each 2 burner electric cooktop we review.
- Durability. Your electric cooktop is good for just about anything that requires pots, pan, woks, and more. When choosing a new electric cooktop, finding one that is durable enough to withstand your day to day usage is a must!
- Heat Variability. Some like it spicy! Others, more mild. A proper electric cooktop will offer you multiple heating options for cooking your food. A cooktop should not mimic a light switch, it’s never just “hot” or “cold”.
- Storage. Unless you plan to use your electric cooktop for every meal, how easy the unit is to stow is vital. The ability to place your electric cooktop on the top shelve in your pantry neatly is always preferred to one that is too large or obscenely shaped to fit into normal spaces.
- Look. We get it, it is an electric cooktop. However, looks and appearance do not only refer to the unit’s aesthetic appeal. Easy to use and well-laid out controls are a necessity.
By referring to these four key characteristics, your search for your next Two burner electric cooktop will be easier than ever before!

Domino Two Burner Electric Radiant Ceramic Cooktop 220V CERV-3002
The Domino Two Burner Electric cooktop is designed and manufactured in Germany out of thick ceramic glass, giving it a solid surface. While the cooktop itself can hold a majority of pots and pans with ease, a minor design characteristic might jeopardize your meals. The ceramic glass top is slightly larger than the base of the electric cooktop, which decreases its strength when being used. Like many electric cooktops, the Domino Two can be inserted into a countertop cut-out, providing additional support when cooking. However, unless you plan to use the unit as a permanent solution for your stovetop cooking needs, the slight overhang of the ceramic glass top will need to be watched while cooking.
Outputting a whopping 3000 Watts of energy, the Domino Two can get hot fast! While still many, the Domino Two provides only nine temperature settings within a range of roughly 400 degrees. Additionally, the Domino Two acts more like a light switch; when a temperature level is selected, it heats up quickly and stays at the designated temperature until turned off. Other units offer a gradual warming and cooling cycling when turning on or off, proving a more realistic cooking experience. The Domino 2, unfortunately, does not come equipped with this feature or one similar.
At just over two inches thick, the Domino Two electric cooktop is thin enough to be placed on nearly any shelve without compromising your space. Furthermore, the unit ways roughly ten pounds, making it light enough to carry upstairs, through the house, around the kitchen, and anywhere else you may require an electric cooktop. For a more permanent storage option, the Domino Two Burner can be placed into any countertop to be used as your primary cooking utility.
The Domino Two offers a clean, solid appearance with its black ceramic glass surface and metal underbody. However, one interesting design of the unit is that the burners are laid out in a vertical manner, with the top burner being approximately 50% larger the bottom. Additionally, a LED display touch screen is used to control the electric cooktop. These controls can be found at the bottom of the second burner, an odd location when cooking we feel.
With a retail price of $159, the Domino Two is an affordable option for the price sensitive shopper. While you may have to part ways with a few cosmetic features found on others, the listed price is perfect for the size and power offered by the Domino Two cooktop.
It’s not our favorite Two burner electric cooktop. An odd design that limits its usage, as well as its temperature settings, places the Domino Two behind others. However, with a retail price of only $159, it will be hard to pass up this electric cooktop when considering all available options.
