If you have been skeptical about getting an induction cooktop, do not waste any more time. If you have any interest in cooking at all or want to speed up your cooking time, you will want to get an induction cooktop as soon as you can.
It can be hard to find good induction cooktop reviews that you can trust, but Amazon tends to have pretty good reviews. All induction cooktops work pretty well from what I have seen and you can get a cheap but effective one for under a hundred dollars.
What vendors will not tell you is that it is many times more expensive to re-fit your stovetop with induction cooking whereas it is much cheaper to get a few stand-alone units which plug into the wall which can effectively replace your stove. For example, these things are just small cooking plates that plug right into the wall and you can cook on top of with little worry.
The reason for this is induction cooktops do not work the same way as other cooktops. Induction cooktops do not get hot themselves but rather use magnets to heat the pan or pot you are cooking with. This means that the bottom of an induction cooktop does not get hot even when it is on a high setting! This means you can place it right on your counter top and start cooking literally wherever you want without having to worry about the heat of the cooktop damaging your table or counter. It does not produce heat itself nor does it get hot even when it is on so that is not a worry. You can cook right on wood without any chance of scarring the wood.
Since plug-in induction cooktops are so cheap, you can just get a few individual units and have a full kitchen worth of induction-powered cooking for a few hundred dollars. I know most people who end up buying 1 induction cooktop end up getting a second because they like it so much and because the units themselves are so cheap.
