I personally have an induction stovetop (by a good stroke of fortune) and let me tell you, it's awesome.
Water boils in a minute (it heats up about 10 times faster than gas!), the heat control is precise and immediate, and it's so easy to wipe clean. It did take a while to get used to, but once past the learning curve, I never want to go back.
Impulse Labs is making this modern type of stovetop even better with a stunning model equipped with a battery and just plugs into a normal wall outlet. Apparently, traditional models can require complicated wiring and expensive installation. But not anymore.
There's no way around it, this is a sexy appliance. And if your cooking game is strong, this might just make it even stronger.
