Gas vs induction - comparing power

michaeljc70 | Sep 10, 2013 12:28 PM

So, I am moving and getting a new range. I am considering gas and induction cooktops. I've read how fast induction gets water to boil, etc.

I am not sure if the comparisons I'm reading are apples to apples of gas to induction. For example, what wattage is the equivalent of a 20k btu burner? If I buy a gas range, it would have an 18k-20k burner.

I currently have a Viking range and I think all the burners are 18k btu.
