If you are like me, you need a little bit on information before making a buying decision. Here’s a description of induction cooktop for you.

Induction cooktops are interesting appliances, so you're shopping for one, you must be excited. These cooktops come with impressive benefits and features and offer incredible time and power savings. These cooktops are used commercially all around the world and are making appearances in private homes as well. If you're new to all this, be prepared to learn because this is a completely new area from what you're used to. That's okay, though, because it's a fun type of learning. Here are some things you should know before you start shopping for induction cooktops.

One of the induction cooktops many features are the sensors that come with the units. You should look for a model with a sensor that can automatically detect whether or not there is a pan on the unit. This sensor is a good safety measure that helps protect the user as well as the unit. This sensor only allows the cooktop to turn on if there induction cooktop is a pan present. As you can see, this is an important safety measure for your home or business. Removing the pan from the unit will turn it off which is a great energy saver.

The cooktop you purchase will ultimately be decided by your circumstances. Your selection will be limited if you have an existing home with only so much space for a new cooktop. It's completely different, however, if you're building a new home or completely renovating your kitchen. The latter situation will give you the greatest flexibility, choices, and options as far as which induction cooktop you can buy. When working with an existing space, it's important to consider the electrical rating of the wiring that will provide your cooktop with power. This will decide the unit you can get. When replacing an existing cooktop, space is not the sole consideration.

Induction cooktops are capable of sensing what type of cookware you are using and compensating for the changes. Magnetic masses of the pots are detected by the sensors on the unit. Induction cooktops must be used with ferrous materials in the pots or a magnetic quality type material. 5 inch diameter is the standard pot used with induction cooktops. You can even find overheat sensors in these cooktops. This function allows the unit to turn itself off in the event of an overheating situation. Additional features include a child safety feature that requires a code to be entered before the unit can be used.

In the future we are likely to see many features and option availabilities in induction cooktops. This is a very young industry that is just beginning to expand more into the residential and typical household market. As more and more companies begin to notice the potential for home use you will see the prices come down even more.

    the install of the cook top is exactly the same. the only difference is you screw on the regulator to the cook top and connect the gas line. it’s a simple job, check out this how to site.http://www.ronhazelton.com/archives/projects/remove-install-cooktop.shtm

  • Kermanzo:

    just chuck the cooker out a buy a new one

  • Jellyhead:

    If it’s like my smaller GE oven, it’s actually a 27 inch. Sears has some, here’s a link to an electric one http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/product.do?cat=Cooktops%2C+Ranges+%26+Ovens&pid=02221724000&vertical=APPL&subcat=Drop-In+Ranges&BV_SessionID=@@@@1647764495.1173330665@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccheaddkgeilhhfcefecemldffidfko.0Bisque GE Appliances Profile™ 27 in.

    I had that problem. I poured a lot of hot water over the spot until is was soaked and turned the burner on. The spot reliquified and I pushed it away with a metal spatula while it was still liquid.

  • Steve G:

    A single-wall galvanized vent will do. READ THE MANUAL!Sorry for shouting, but it’ll all be in there. It’ll tell you the size, max distance, max number of elbows, etc.Don’t skimp by reducing the vent size – it may not work.

  • bobm581:

    Yes they do go, so do the simmerstats (temperature control knob). Need to get it checked for which is faulty and replaced. Check out your local smeg dealers and spares agent. You can sometimes see a burn/small hole in an element when they blow, but not always.

  • J P:

    Some stainless steel works with an induction cooktop, some doesn’t. The general rule is, if a magnet will stick to it, it will work on an induction cooker. Some of my stainless cookwear works and some of it doesn’t.

  • ijcoffin:

    If every thing is installed according to code it should be OK.

  • Daniel P:

    have you considered your pilot light? this control whether or not you get gas; it might be low or running out.

  • Karen L:

    Cleanup on smooth tops is not easier, in my opinion. They’re usually black, which shows everything. You’re supposed to use special cleaners, though I have found that a microfibre cloth works as well as anything else for general cleaning. If something boils over or spills, you can’t clean the top till it cools down, by which time whatever it is might be cooked on. They will etch from some foods and get permanent stains/burn marks which I’ve found no way of removing. They can crack. I clean in a house which has one. It’s only about 2 years old, looks like hell, I cannot clean everything right off which is a problem you very rarely get with a traditional top, and I have tried everything including a metal razor blade which you’re not supposed to use in case you scratch the top. There are some cooking pots you’re not supposed to use on them. I would never buy one. I think they’re designed by people who don’t actually cook.

  • Judy:

    Sometimes baking soda will rub it off your black ceramic cook-top. Or ceramic cleaner for corning ware works great. Also the cleaner that is made for black ceramic cook top stove. Also the magic eraser works great along with the baking soda. Rinse it off with white vinegar. If you are really not happy after trying these the Bar Keepers Friend scouring powder is great for polishing and cleaning most everything and even cleaned my brass lamps until they sparkled without a scratch on either one.

  • Wiseass:

    I assume that you have a range (oven and cooktop in 1 appliance). There isn’t a way to remove the coil burners and replace it with a radient (smooth) top. If you are tired of your range, there are several options for replacing it that are completely affordable. I believe they start at about $499 for a good model, $699 for a top rated model at Sears.If you have a wall-oven and cooktop (two seperate appliances), then it should be pretty easy to find a new cooktop. Just make sure that you measure carefully and bring the measurements with you to the store. Be exact. A nice cooktop will run you about $499 to $549 and you may want to consider paying extra for installation from a professional. If the company installs it and something goes wrong, they are liable, not you.I hope that answers your question.

  • G C:

    ET, Sears makes a Craftsman version of the RotoZip, that will cut tile as-well-as other materials. It uses a rotary cutting bit similar to a router, just as fast. It makes a clean cut almost no sanding. It’s priced around $59, and comes with several attachments and a compliment of bits. Check the link below for more info. Hope this helps. Good luck.

  • azera221:

    Mine rattle too. The reason is because I used to have a gas range, and the pots got uneven on the bottom when subjected to high flames. The only way to stop them is either to stand over them or to get new pots and pans. The new ones won’t rattle.

  • walmeis:

    Is the correctly sized hole cut for it? Is there a suitable electrical hookup for in place for it? If so, this is a straightforward electrical job. Probably one hours work for a residential electrician.If there is no power run underneath for the cook top, this will be much more expensive to run a line and install the unit. Up to 5 hours for a normal house. And then there is likely a need for a drywall dude to fix the walls after the electrician is done with them.

  • Rochelle:

    I use a citrus spray. I am not sure of the Name of it. But it’s Orange of course (smile). and you can find it by the cleaning sprays and it is safe to use in the Kitchen. Love that cause it’s safe around food and wont’s leave streaks or stains on the glass top. also the citrus in it helps improve the cleaning process.Happy Cleaning

  • AJ Franklin:

    Almost certainly you can wash the parts in the dishwasher. If your cooktop came with a manual look the question up in there. I can’t imagine a cooktop manufacturer who would make something that couldn’t be washed in the d/w.
