When I said you’re severely limited you are. Every pot and pan on the market will not work on induction. There are limited pots and pans that work with induction.

I bought an induction single-burner cooktop on Amazon about 4 years ago and some pots that work with it. It does work very well and I never use the burners on my old stove top anymore. I just pull out the induction and use it. I like that the handle of the pot is safe to touch even while it is on high heat. It also seems to cook more quickly and efficiently. I do miss using some of my other pots and pans. The induction cooktop I bought online was not expensive - maybe 45 -65 dollars? Brand was Duxtop. You could get one and try it out before buying a whole new oven/stove to see what you think....

Ha ha. steiconi. We actually had someone in our (hoa) neighborhood try to get approval for a (large) outdoor propane tank. Uh, no.

Yes! I've noticed that, too. I would find something I like and no one has it. I'm almost thinking about just waiting for supplies to come back. My old stove works, I just don't like it.

that's why you should figure out what you want so you can get on the order list. You may not actually get it for another many months, but at least you won't be at the back of the line when things do start coming in.

And in many cases, if you change your mind, stores are waiving restocking fees, etc. because they have plenty of other waiting customers to sell it to.

Except no one will allow you to order. I've tried several places - they all list as out of stock with no way to buy and get in line. I suspect they had too many irate people who tied up their $$ and got nothing.

You need to go to a store in person, not order online. Preferably a local store, not a big box.

I bought an LG slide in induction range. Couldn’t be happier. Although I like GE’s styling better, I am leery of their reliability.

It took very little time to adjust to cooking on induction- it responds just like gas.

I had to replace all of my (very expensive) Calphalon anodized aluminum cookware, but I factored that into the cost when I made the decision. I purchased a set of stainless cookware from Made In and I’ve been very happy with it as well.

I bought mine through Costco but that was right before the all the supply issues that have cropped up. I just looked and the LG model they show on their website is $3049! I only paid $1799 for mine.

Yeah. Funny enough, the big box stores have driven most of them out of business. Lots of places around here deal in used appliances, not really new.

Induction, induction, induction!! Had ours for about a year now. Cooked on gas for 7 years, electric for 10, and now induction. I would choose it over gas (and definately electric). The ability to control a precise temperature is second to none. And the speed to heat up/boil, as well as easy clean-up is fantastic.


Mine is a bit fancier than you are looking at (we also wanted it to be a design feature), but I have ZERO regrets with going with an induction!!

Another vote for induction. We've had our Thermador cooktop for 3 years with no problems. All Clad copper core, regular stainless and cast iron works great.

If you are in Florida you will love the fact that there is no heat generated other than from the pot. Spills can be cleaned up immediately and it is energy efficient.
