Induction cooktop- INSTALLED!

Anyway, we'll play with it next week on our trip and report back to you with the results!

Power and temperature controls are either/or. You can only use one at a time. The temperature numbers are not likely to be very close to the actual temperature in the pan, but it does provide a small amount of thermostatic control. You really have to experiment with it to see how it works for you. I have found it to be more accurate in the deep-frying temperature range than at boiling or below.

One caution I forgot to mention! If you use the 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum strips to mount the cooktop, and need to put right angle bends in the ends, and do this using a vise and a hammer, you can easily break the material because of the thickness! (don't ask how I know this) The trick is not to strike the strip at the bending point but just past it so the 90-degree bend is more rounded, putting less stress on the material! Hope this makes sense!

Great pictures of the install. I found them informative. I wonder if S/B stoves will ever go that way. I cook on electric at home and really wish the place was set up for gas.

Are there non-stick cookware that work with induction cooking? Other than cast iron.

Plenty of available items ...

Nonstick induction cookware | Williams-Sonoma

even Walmart or Amazon.

There is some non-stick cookware out there that will work, but most of it is VERY expensive!

I don't have a set ... it's mixed stuff and picked up randomly. Most is from HomeGoods and TJMAXX. Hit or miss and varies by location. I don't think I paid more than $25 for each piece. For the 2 of us 10" skillet is big enough. 2 qt. and 4 qt. saucepans with lids. Everything else goes in the crockpot or big casserole ceramic cookware for convection.

I carry a small magnet in the car (a bottle opener with magnet) in case I come across something in travel. It also works to open bottles .

Here is why I shut the power off to mine. If you have the cooktop uncovered and someone sets something metal on it, such keys, spatula, silverware, etc....it doesn't take much to turn the unit on....just a touch. On a typical gas cooktop, you have to physical light the burner which takes a conscious effort.

Yeah, I can see how that could be a problem on an uncovered cooktop! Fortunately, ours will always be covered unless we're cooking on it!

IMPORTANT UPDATE! You will recall that I mounted the cooktop at the back of the recessed opening and filled the gap at the front with plexiglass. Well, Annette just pointed out to me that I should have mounted the cooktop in the center of the opening and put plexiglass sheets in front AND back of it! That way, cookware on the burners will not be close to the back of the recessed opening! DUH!

I am going to move it forward and use the other half of the plexiglass sheet I bought to fill in the rear space!
