I can't have gas in my kitchen, I live in a condominium hi rise. I have read about and now tested one of the new induction cooktops and was amazed at how fast water boiled (about one minute in a two quart pot) and how hot a frying pan got for stir frying - I actually had to turn down the heat. I don't know anyone who has one in their house. I do know many restaurants and cooking schools are putting them in I am interested in performance. Anyone have any thoughts, opinions? I am currently looking at the Diva 36" model but am getting some mixed signals.
