But marketing is a powerful, powerful force that can precisely boil brains in minutes flat.
You know what they say about a watched pot. Those 90 seconds may very well seem like 90 minutes.

God help the upscale suburban teen who has to wait two more minutes for his ramen.


Very much, IMVHO, a solution looking for a problem. Since the 1940s if not earlier.

The current boom has more to do with exploiting a marketing niche (driven by one-upsmanship in $uburbia) than any practical factors.

Looks like the solution has found its problem: Social media influencers going live for their "cooking shows" and things have to take place very rapidly to keep audience attention

I put a single induction cooktop on top of my electric stove and just use that for ALL my cooking. Love it. I can turn up or down the heat level w instant response and when I turn it off, it is off... unlike the regular stove that stays hot for 15+ mins. Lots of cookware are compatible. I have a set of Belgique from Macy's and others.

"Marketing" = any time someone doesn't see value in a feature.

Cast Iron can be used on "fragile" glass induction ranges.
Just use a silicone plastic pad or a heat diffuser between the pan and the range.
(get 100% silicone - avoid fiberglass blends)

You mean to prevent scratching the glass? I'd just use a piece of paper btw the pan and the range.
