If you cook A lot as I do,this device is the best gift you could give yourself.
My first impressions were you feel no heat in the air around the cooktop,like gas or radiant electric.
I was amazed 2 quarts of water steaming in 20 seconds then boiling at 3 mins!
I am 2 months in and can't imagine ever using either gas or conventional electric,I have seen a drop in electricity costs using it.
I use silicone burner protectors to keep from scratching the surface and cook through them with no issues.Only the pots and pans get hot not the burner,takes some getting used to but the level of precision and efficiency is wonderful.
I love this cooktop! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
