Summary: Induction is the best type of cooktop and better than high end gas cooktops, smooth electric, coil electric. It is easier to clean as the surface does not get hot enough to burn on food. It heats up 4 times faster than our previous smooth top electric.
Summary: ht this from lowes for 2500. I see amazon sells it cheaper. I have absolutely loved this cook top. Its amazing. It takes a minute to change cooking habits. You dont need to wait for the pan to heat up before starting to cook. Its starts cooking almost instantly.
Summary: First I love my new induction cooktop. Second I am so glad I got a Bosch. I have enjoyed cooking again. The Bosch works so well and is quality. I bought a set of Berndes induction stainless steel pans and am glad I finally did.
Summary: I got this from Lowe's on sale - well actually they I saw it for a really good price and then it wasn't there the next day even though it said the sale went for the next week - and they said it was a computer glitch and the sale price was incorrect.
Summary: Firstly we wanted gas but our house was not "piped" for a gas cooktop. This seemed a reasonable compromise. However knowing what I know now - i would go for this over a a gas cooktop in the future. We love to cook but have small kids and this definitely has safety written all over it.
