Ok my oil loving friends, I'm coming with something different today. I'm sure some of you have seen either the Nuwave or Aroma Induction Cooktops around lately, and maybe you've thought about using one with your desiccator as opposed to a griddle to reduce temp variance. In this video I will be testing an Aroma Induction Cooktop with my Vac-It Pro vacuum chamber to see if it will work.

Induction cooktops vary from standard cooking stoves in that they do not utilize a heating coil, but rather use an electric current which produces an oscillating magnetic field that reacts with the iron in your pan, heating the pan itself. So if there is no iron in the pot/pan/desiccator then it will not work.

As you can see in the video, the Induction cooktop doesn't work with the Vac-It Pro container due to it being made of aluminum. So hopefully this video saves some of you the time and trouble of purchasing one of these yourself to use with your Vac-It Pro. I suppose you could purchase a large cast iron skillet, and place the Vac-It within that but that all sounds a bit hokey to me.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How much butane do you use? A. I utilize 1 can of high quality butane per oz of high quality trim/flower.
Q. What tubes do you use? A. Extraction Experts XL Tubes. Good tubes, company always ships super slow though. I'll be moving to new tubes soon.
Q. What kind of filters? I use 100 micron metal screens in conjunction with 25 micron pressing screens, as well as unbleached coffee filters at times although I much prefer pressing screens as they hold up better for longer.
Q. How long do you vacuum purge for? A. Till I've reached the desired honeycomb texture I want, or till I have a clean shatter that will not move under pressure at 110f.
Q. Do I really need a vacuum pump and chamber for making good oil? A. It is not 100% necessary, but I HIGHLY recommend it for top shelf oil. It will make your job a lot faster and easier, and help to ensure you a safer product.
Q. What kind of pump do you use? A. Robinair 2 Stage 3 CFM Pumps.
Q. What kind of butane do you use? A. I mostly use Power 5x, but also like Vector and Colibri (twice the price).
Q. What kind of vacuum chamber do you use, and where can I buy one? A. Vac-It Pro and you can only purchse them on eBay. They are around $120.
