This 30-inch cooktop features induction technology that uses electromagnetic energy to generate instant heat directly to your cookware without spreading the heat across the entire cooking surface. This superior responsiveness is available on four elements that can reach nine heat levels letting you do everything from boiling to simmering much faster than on a gas or electric cooktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing I wasn't sure I was going to like induction cooking ( I gave an expensive set of cookware away when I got this cooktop) but I can tell you it's BETTER than cooking on any other cooktop INCLUDING GAS. Induction cooking heats ONLY the cookware so things heat instantly and evenly and when you shut it off, it's OFF with no remaining radiant heat like all other stoves. And since the surface doesn't get hot, spilled foods simply wipe off. This is the only way to cook...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Induction cooking is the way to go I am very pleased with the rapid heating of a burner when I use the cook top. Food reaches the cooking temperature and cools down rapidly when I change the control. It is so easy to clean in the event of a spill.. I am very pleased and so glad I selected this appliance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to induction cooking New to induction cooking, like that it is quick to heat and lower like using gas. Just wished the controls were easier to see as well as the cooking elements.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice cooktop A little noisy. Cooks similar to gas. Poor installation instructions regarding the brackets. Make you purchase glue that is over $100 for the tube if your cooktop is going into a granite or quartz top....that's silly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great I'm enjoying the induction cooking so far. It looks great in my kitchen. My only issue is with cleaning it. Ceramabrite was recommended to clean it, and I find it takes a while to buff it so it's not streaked. That might just be me figuring out the amount of cleaner necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and fast. First induction cooktop for me. I enjoy the way it cooks and its convenience I'm still getting use to the induction method, but already like it better than the electric cooktop it replaced. Easier to control the heat level, less burning. Sleek surface with no knobs.
