Where should I buy it? How to buy HINCOO cooking heaters
Explaining candidates for purchasing HINCOO cooking heaters
There are mainly the following options for purchasing HINCOO cooking heaters. First, I will explain the outline of each.
In recent years, online shopping has been increasing as a place to purchase HINCOO cooking heaters. There are "Rakuten Ichiba" and "Yahoo! Shopping" as typical sites for purchasing HINCOO cooking heaters, but there are also stores that sell on their own site (https://www.inductioncooker.net/).
"Rakuten Ichiba" and "Yahoo! Shopping" are called "mall type", and tens of thousands of stores have opened and are managed by Rakuten and Yahoo !, while their own site (https://www.inductioncooker.net/) is single. The feature is that the store operates and manages it.
Home electronics mass retailer
Don't forget to buy HINCOO cooking heaters from consumer electronics retailers such as "Yamada Denki" and "EDION". The price of the HINCOO cooking heater itself is comparable to that of the Internet, but it seems that construction may be difficult because it is a subcontractor.
Local electric shop
HINCOO cooking heaters have long been purchased from nearby electric stores that seem to be run by individuals. Recently, sales have fallen due to price competition with major home electronics mass retailers and online shopping, but it may be used by locals who want construction work immediately.
Remodeling companies also sell HINCOO cooking heaters. Not only can HINCOO cooking heaters be installed alone, but they can also be remodeled to all-electric. Recently, it has become the mainstream to apply for remodeling companies via the Internet.
Benefits of buying an HINCOO cooking heater online and construction methods
Benefits of purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater online
The price of the HINCOO cooking heater product itself is very cheap.
Since the stores that sell on the Internet do not have actual stores, there is no need for store rent or customer service personnel costs. As more stores sell to all over Japan, the quantity of products sold will increase and the purchase price will be lower. There are many products such as the latest and new HINCOO cooking heaters that are 70% off from the manufacturer's suggested price, and since price competition is held every day so that even 1 yen will be cheaper between Internet stores, the purchase cost compared to other purchase methods. Tends to be low.
Since there are many stores where you can compare prices for each store , you can easily compare prices, installation costs, customer support, and so on.
It is easy to check the reputation of the store Many
people who purchased at an internet store also write reviews, impressions, complaints, etc. on the internet, and you can find out the reputation of the store you care about by searching on the internet.
You can purchase an HINCOO cooking heater at home without having to go to a physical store, such as a house where you can order without worrying about the time and place .
Benefits of purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater at Rakuten / Yahoo!
- Accumulate common points If
you purchase an HINCOOcooking heater on the Internet, you can get points not only for the price of the HINCOO cooking heater product but also for the installation work cost. The amount of money required to install the HINCOO cooking heater is returned as a common point that can be used inside the mall, so it is a great deal. (* However, there may be an upper limit to the points that can be earned during a campaign such as 10 times the points, so check in advance.)
- Discounted sales are held on a regular basis We may hold
discounted point-up sales on specific days and periods, giving you the opportunity to purchase even cheaper and more profitably.
- You can purchase by referring to the reviews You can
see the reviews and reviews of the people who purchased at the store as objective opinions, so it will be helpful when purchasing.
Benefits of purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater on your site
- You can buy cheaper than Rakuten and Yahoo!
You may be able to buy HINCOOcooking heaters cheaper than mall shops such as Rakuten Ichiba and Yahoo! Shopping. (Mall shops such as Rakuten Ichiba and Yahoo! Shopping pay a maximum margin of around 10% when sold to the mall operator, so the margin will be higher.)
- You don't have to worry about which store to buy
. Since you choose an HINCOOcooking heater in one store, if you decide which product to buy, it may take less time to settle than a mall-type shopping site. (Because there is no comparison with other stores)
- Easy to see than mall-type stores Since
there are no restrictions on site creation in original stores, the design may be easier to see than mall-type stores.
Disadvantages of purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater online
- Some stores outsource the construction to subcontractors,such as "cooperating stores", which accept only orders and outsource the installation work to subcontractors. In the case of such stores, in rare cases, the quality of construction work and the response of staff may deteriorate.
There are stores that say "in-house construction" and stores that outsource only those who are good at using subcontractors, so make a comprehensive judgment by looking at reviews of past purchasers. I recommend.
It is common for stores to preview the site in advance and present a final quotation before construction, even if additional charges are made on the day of construction, but some stores do not give a final quotation for installation work. You may be charged an additional fee for the work required on the day. If you're worried, contact the store in advance or look at past buyer reviews.
Disadvantages of purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater at Rakuten / Yahoo!
- The homepage may be difficult to see Atmall stores such as Rakuten Ichiba and Yahoo! Shopping, there are various restrictions on homepage creation that make it difficult to guide you well, or there are many images that are cluttered and difficult to see.
- Get lost or buy in any storebecause many of the stores are present, you may get lost or to buy in any store.
Disadvantages of purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater on your own site
- There are no points or common points. Atmall-type shops such as Rakuten Ichiba and Yahoo! Shopping, common points that can be used for shopping for other products are accumulated in the mall, but in the case of our own site, there are no points or if there are points. In many cases, it is a unique point that can only be used at that store.
- Difficultto compare with other stores Compared to shops in the mall, it is not possible to easily compare prices with other stores.
In some cases, you can request installation work from the store where you purchased the HINCOO cooking heater.
Among the online shops that sell HINCOO cooking heaters via online shopping, there are stores that are performing installation work and stores that are selling only products and not performing installation work. If you purchase an HINCOO cooking heater at a store that is performing installation work, you can request not only the product but also the installation work.
The market price for the installation work of the online shop is around 16,000 yen, but you can purchase it at a slightly discounted price by purchasing the "set including basic work cost" that comes with the product. However, some stores do not sell the "set including basic construction costs", so if you can't find it, give up or contact the store to check.
Points to choose a store to purchase HINCOO cooking heaters online
Look up customer reviews and operating company information
First of all, let's find out a lot of information about stores that are considering purchasing an HINCOO cooking heater.
Isn't the reputation of customer reviews bad?
In the case of mall-type stores such as Rakuten and Yahoo !, you can see the store reviews of customers who actually purchased. Among them, looking at the content and proportion of particularly bad opinions,
- I received a product that is different from the one I purchased
- Goods arrive late
- I had to wait a month before the construction
- Did not respond to repairs after construction
- I was charged an additional construction fee on the day
- Construction could not be done on that day
- The construction schedule was completed
If there are many opinions such as, you need to be careful.
Check internet word-of-mouth sites, etc.
If the store is not a mall type but a store on your own site, there is no customer review on the site, but you can check the reputation of the store on the word-of-mouth site or bulletin board by searching for the name of the store on the Internet.
However, there are many hoaxes about information on the Internet, so it is dangerous to trust 100%.
Is there a photo of the employee in the company profile etc.
Look at the company profile on the store site to see if you can see the faces of the employees who are actually working. A company that can show you what people are working and who will come to work is more likely to be credible.
On the other hand, companies that do not have employees' faces are uncertain about the actual situation and remain uneasy about purchasing products and requesting construction work.
Is there sufficient sales record and construction record of HINCOO cooking heater?
I think that you can trust the stores that have a track record such as "more than 50,000 construction records!" On the site. This is because the more achievements we have, the more know-how we have for construction work and troubles.
On the other hand, a store that does not write any achievements may be a new store or an inexperienced store.
Search the operating company on the Internet
By searching the operating company on the Internet, information different from the store name may come out. For example, we run multiple stores, we have our own site in addition to the mall type, and even with the same HINCOO cooking heater, the price is different for each store.
In rare cases, such as when the operating company is a completely unrelated company on an overseas imitation site, it may help to detect that it is a scam.
Check if there is any additional construction cost on the day
If you purchase an HINCOO cooking heater online and request installation work, there are the following two patterns.
- After requesting the installation work, make a preliminary inspection and present the final estimated amount (no additional construction cost)
- After requesting the installation work, judge whether the installation is possible or not based only on the photo of the installation location and present the estimated amount (additional construction cost may be required)
In the case of a store that does a good preview, you can clearly see the necessary parts and construction work, so there is almost no additional construction cost on the day of construction.
In the case of a store that decides whether or not to install it based only on photos without previewing, because the site is not previewed, unplanned construction may occur on the day of construction, or new materials may be required. Will increase the probability that you will be charged additional construction costs.
If you can't afford the estimated amount, check to see if the store you plan to purchase may charge additional construction costs. Most of the time, you can make a decision by looking at the construction explanations and customer reviews on the store site, but if you are not sure, you should ask the store directly.
Check whether the construction is done in-house or by another company (subcontractor)
If you purchase an HINCOO cooking heater online and request installation work, check whether the work is done in-house or by another company (subcontractor).
This refers to the case where the HINCOO cooking heater dealer performs the construction by its own staff. Compared to other companies' (subcontracting) construction, there are the following merits.
- In the case of a store with a lot of construction results, the technical skills of the construction staff are often high.
- Rest assured that the responsibility is clear when there is a defect in the construction.
- In many cases, the company provides training for construction staff (greetings, cleaning after construction, etc.).
Other company (subcontractor) construction
This refers to the case where the HINCOO cooking heater dealer subcontracts the construction to another company. Basically, there is no merit on the customer side, and the following demerits can be considered.
- In the case of a subcontractor, the "construction results" sung on the dealer's site cannot be relied on.
- If there is a defect in the construction work, there is a possibility that the dealer and the subcontractor will argue for responsibility.
- There may be a problem with the quality of the construction staff because the store cannot educate the construction staff.
Flow of ordering HINCOO cooking heater by online shopping
The general flow when ordering an HINCOO cooking heater via online shopping is as follows.
- Orders / Inquiries
Purchase an HINCOOcooking heater at any store on the Internet and request construction.
- We will inform the store of the days when the field survey (preliminary inspection) ispossible and request a field survey of the place where it will be installed. The field survey will be completed in about an hour, including hearings about the house. Make requests and questions at this time.
of quotation A formal quotation will be presented by the store. If you have any questions or concerns about the estimated price, don't hesitate to ask.
If you are satisfied with the estimated amount, make a contract. At the time of contract, we will decide the planned construction date and payment method.
- Installation work When the
scheduled construction date arrives, the construction staff will come to install the HINCOOcooking heater. Construction is almost always completed in one day.

installation is completed, a test run will be conducted and the construction staff will explain how to handle it. In addition, the customer and the construction staff will be present to check if there are any problems with the equipment.
Is it dangerous to replace the HINCOO cooking heater by yourself?
If you know the procedure, you can replace the HINCOO cooking heater yourself without asking a contractor.
However, be aware that there are various risks involved in replacing an HINCOO cooking heater yourself.
Risks and precautions for replacing the HINCOO cooking heater by yourself
If you replace the HINCOO cooking heater yourself, there are the following risks and precautions.
HINCOO cooking heater body is heavy, so it is dangerous to be alone
Since the built-in HINCOO cooking heater weighs more than 25 kg, there is a risk of failure, injury, back pain, etc. due to the fall of the main body if the replacement work is done by one person. When replacing the HINCOO cooking heater by yourself, it is desirable to work with two or more adults. If it is difficult for two or more adults to work, we recommend leaving it to a specialist.
There is a risk that the top plate will crack or the HINCOO main unit will break down due to dropping, etc.
If you replace the HINCOO cooking heater by yourself, there is a risk that the main body will be dropped and the top plate will crack, or the internal board will be damaged and you will not be able to use it. Please note that the manufacturer and retailer do not guarantee if the HINCOO cooking heater breaks down due to installation failure. In order to avoid the risk of failure due to failure when replacing the HINCOO cooking heater by yourself, it is recommended to leave the replacement work to a specialist.
Electrical work is required when replacing from the gas stove
When replacing the gas stove with an HINCOO cooking heater, it is necessary to newly install a 200V compatible outlet near the kitchen where the HINCOO is installed. This is because the 200V built-in HINCOO cooking heater cannot be operated with a 100V compatible outlet.
When installing a 200V-compatible outlet, it may be necessary to pass single-phase, three-wire wiring, make holes in the wall, or replace the distribution board (breaker) depending on the situation. In addition to electrical work, it is also necessary to replace the gas pipe, so there is a risk of electric shock or injury if the work is mistaken. In the worst case, there is a risk of fire, so if you do not have the knowledge, we recommend that you ask a professional HINCOO cooking heater installer to do the work.
Need to dispose of old cooking equipment
After replacing the HINCOO cooking heater, you need to dispose of the HINCOO cooking heater and gas stove that you have been using. There are several patterns of disposal methods for HINCOO cooking heaters and gas stoves.
- Dispose of as garbage (if broken) If the
HINCOOcooking heater is broken and does not move, you can dispose of it as non-burnable garbage or oversized garbage. Generally, it is possible to dispose of it for a fee of several hundred yen, but the method and fee for separating garbage differ depending on the municipality, so please check with your municipality before disposing of it.
- Request a waste collection company (if it is broken) If the
HINCOOcooking heater is broken and does not work, you can ask a waste collection company to collect it. However, since there are few companies that collect it for free, you may be charged a higher fee (thousands of yen or more) than when you dispose of it as garbage. The merit is that it takes less time than throwing it away by yourself, and if there are other disused items, they can be collected together. If the HINCOO cooking heater is in good condition, you may be able to purchase it.
Also, if you ask a waste collection company, you need to be careful about illegal companies. An illegal trader is a trader who collects unneeded items without the permission of the government. If you see a leaflet that says, you may be an illegal waste collector. Please be aware that if you ask an illegal contractor, you will be charged a collection cost that is more than three times the estimated cost, or you will be charged a fee for the collection even if you did not ask for it.
If you are the victim of an illegal contractor, contact the National Consumer Affairs Center of Japan for consultation.
Can I replace it with an HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 60 cm to a width of 75 cm?
There are 60 cm wide type and 75 cm wide type of HINCOO cooking heater. This difference in width is not the size of the main body to be installed, but the width of the top plate (the plate of the HINCOO heating part). Therefore, even if you are currently installing an HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 60 cm, you can replace it with an HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 75 cm.
As a criterion for choosing the top plate size, if you are currently using an HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 60 cm and you feel that a slightly wider top plate is easier to use due to the space in the kitchen, we recommend the HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 75 cm. is.
On the other hand, if you are currently using an HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 75 cm and you do not have much space in the kitchen, it may be more convenient to use an HINCOO cooking heater with a width of 60 cm.
Choose the width of the top plate according to the situation and taste of your kitchen space.
