1. SENZ SZ-RI3200i 2-in-1 Smart Induction & Ceramic Cooker Hob

best value induction cooker Malaysia - SENZ SZ-RI3200i

We think Senz smart induction & ceramic cooker hob is the best value induction hobs for most Malaysians. Because it has an induction cooker at one side and ceramic hob on the other side.

SENZ SZ-RI3200i features highlight:

  • Highest 2000W heat, total 2800
  • Timer function
  • Overheating protection
  • Child safety lock
  • One side is ceramic hob, suitable for all cookwares

Customer’s positive review:

Cooks well, really love it. Easy to use and install. Induction zone is very very powerful, ceramic takes longer time to heat up and i felt the heat on the ceramic zone is less powerful. Nonetheless it was worth the buy 👍

Customer’s critical review:

The material is only tempered glass and not Schott Ceran. Both side can’t run on same high temp, if you raise one side the other will drop. I ordered together with ch930ac hood but I still haven’t received them, they should bundle the orders together but one item is here and the other one is missing. I just started to use the hob and after a few usages the ceramic area has some stains there which will never go off. Not satisfied with this purchase.

There are multiple brands that do direct sales for induction cooker before Senz. We have Vees delicooker and Sugawa too. It seems that Senz is the only one which is still active right now.

The key advantage of having a ceramic hob is that it compatible with all types of cookware material: claypot, ceramic, glass, copper, cast iron, stainless steel, normal steel or even aluminium non stick material.

Induction cooker only works with metal type material which can be magnetized in order to utilize the induction method for heating.

Customer’s positive review:

So far have been using it for around 1 month. Both side works perfectly and for the induction side it actually make the kitchen area cooler due to it only heat up the metal pot or frying pan only.

Customer’s critical review:

As per telephone conversation with your Customer Care the induction cooker on the left hand side does not work when we press the +/- button to increase/decrease the temperature. As a result not be able to cook using the induction cooker as the +/- button are not working. No heat at all from the induction cooker.

Note that the negative review could be an individual case. Regardless of all the rave reviews, I personally don’t prefer to go with this model as the price difference between it and Midea MC-IHD361 is only around RM100. Midea’s brand is more reputable and it has higher heat output too.

Similar to other hybrids electric hob, the halogen cooker can be used for any types of cookware material.

Customer’s critical review: None

Xiaomi induction cooker comes with the usual Xiaomi design aesthetic which is clean and stylish. Different from other typical induction cookers, it is white in colour and round-shaped.

This cooker also has the advantage that its temperature can be controlled very precisely, you can increase the heat by 1 level each time, up to maximum of 99.

Also, it can do really low-temperature cooking which many induction cookers or even modern gas stoves would not be to do so. Low-temperature cooking can help to prepare your food in perfection in terms of taste and texture.

On top of that, Xiaomi induction cooker has more than 100+ cooking modes when you connect it to Xiaomi Home app.

There’s one small downside with this cooker is that it doesn’t coes with Malaysia plug. If you don’t mind that, it is the best free standing single induction cooker in my humble opinion.
