YES! My husband was a little disappointed when we went to the open house thinking it was electric stove but realized it was induction!!! Even better than gas!! I can't wait to entertain. I cook but nothing amazing. Hoping this will inspire me to get creative with new dishes!

Ever since I visited this Mount Laurel couple's kitchen makeover, I've been drooling over induction cooktops.

I was pleased to see one being offered at Ikea for under $1,000. However, since I rent, there's no point in me pining after one unless I want my landlord to jack up my rent.

I'm a pretty mean cook with my vintage-1970s electric range as it is, though. I wish you the best as you experiment with your new cooktop.

Hmmm. This gives me an idea for a followup story if you're game. And if you're game, please DM me.

Being a pretty good home cook myself I can tell you, and your article mentions it, drawers in 90% of the lower cabinets improves your kitchen immensely.


No bent-over digging around for anything here. The unopened drawer at the far end contains the food processor. It's an easy lift onto the counter.

The problem... A stack of drawers will be higher priced than a one drawer/two door base cabinet. Hence the reason why you see contractor kitchens have mostly doors. I'm assuming that not many kitchen designers are offering them. At Ikea you see drawer setups but I haven't seen them making their way into Philly DIY homes yet. And it seems that in Philly most folks won't spend the extra when installing a new kitchen.
