Do you use an Induction cooktop?

Dw and I really miss the outside kitchen that we had in our previous camper. Especially on the days that we are cooking bacon as it gives us the option of moving the splattering grease and smoke outside. It also gives us a great opportunity to meet our neighbours because as soon as the smoke lingered out our neighbours were over introducing themselves (ha,ha ). We are looking at purchasing an induction cooktop and wondering if others are doing this and what are the pros and cons. Our pots and pans are induction compatible so all we need is the cooktop.

We do a lot of induction cooking outside. We recently bought a second cooktop. Our coach is all electric.

We like induction.

I'm planning on buying an induction cooktop as well. I don't like dealing with propane. Plus we will be getting a convection/microwave. I may never use the regular stove if I can help it. I use an electric skillet outside to cook bacon. Well hubby does while I cook the eggs indoors.

We have two Max Burton 6200 Deluxe portable induction cooktops that we love to cook with. We use them both inside and outside. After extensive research, we chose the Max Burton brand because of all the really great reviews they received. I still use my propane cooktop occasionally, but usually use the induction because it puts so much less heat into the RV.

anyone know if there is a induction cooktop that can replace the current stock ones that come with our trailers?

also, for those if us that just love to cook outside has anyone found a dual induction top?

not a topic here but I am looking to run our cooking devices from a solar rechargable set up.

Found several nice ones on Amazon.ca so likely .com will have the same ones. There's even a double side by side unit. The smell of bacon will be filling the campgrounds again . Isn't life wonderful?

I just got a BIG BOSS induction cooktop from nomorerack.com for 47 bucks delivered.

I had to get some new cookware, and had some that worked,, So far Im impressed,, Now it will not cut down on smoke, grease or odor but it does cook faster, and better, I suspect it uses less electricity as well.

I now have some new cookware chosen to work with it (Dropped 200 at a kitchen store close out) but it works well.

That said.. yesterday when I went to make a pot of pressure cooker bean soup I burned propane,, The pressure cooker is NOT induction compatible and the resistive burner is not powerful enough. Soup was GOOD!. It's a "dump" recipe... 2 pounds well soaked beans, A can of Hormel Chili (no beans), Hunts diced tomatoes, and Tomato Paste. A pound of crumbled sausage (Cut it up after adding) 2 cans of Veg-All mixed vegetable drained, One 20% more box of Swansons Chicken broth (I should have added around a cup of water but did not)

Bring to pressure or 30 minutes and then let cool naturally.

Note, Pressure cooker was VERY FULL (I think its a six quart) I may try like 1.5 pounds of beans next time or cut down on Veggies, normally I use 2 pounds frozen but the store did not have.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and comments. I've decided to add this to our camper. Found a 1800 watt unit on sale for just over $70.00. I can smell the bacon already.
