Induction cooktops bring microwave speed to the kitchen counter. To test this, I put 1 cup of water in an enameled cast-iron pan, set the cooktop to #6 (high) and timed it. At 1 minute, small amounts of steam appeared, at 1:15 small bubbles formed, at 1:30 boiling, at 1:45 rolling boil. Try putting 1 cup of water in a microwave, see how fast it boils. Also, the heat gets inducted directly into the pan, the glass cooktop was warm only because of the pan. For grins, I also put a dollar bill between the pan and the cooktop, and it was unharmed, if I had done this on a glass top range, it would have been burned. I tested this with a deep-cycle battery and a 1500watt inverter, so it would work for camping or in a power-out emergency when you don't want to use a campstove in your house.
